Christmas at Tiffany's ~ TLC Book Tour

~ I received a copy of this book from the publisher or author to facilitate this review.  I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~

Synopsis (from Amazon): In the wake of a heartbreaking betrayal, a young woman leaves the Scottish countryside to find her destiny in three of the most exciting cities in the world—New York, Paris, and London—in this funny and triumphant tale of fulfillment, friendship, and love.

Ten years ago, a young and na├»ve Cassie married her first serious boyfriend, believing he would be with her forever. Now, her marriage is in tatters and Cassie has no career or home of her own. Though she feels betrayed and confused, Cassie isn’t giving up. She’s going to take control of her life. But first she has to find out where she belongs . . . and who she wants to be.
Over the course of one year, Cassie leaves her sheltered life in rural Scotland to stay with her best friends living in the most glamorous cities in the world: New York, Paris, and London. Exchanging comfort food and mousy hair for a low-carb diet and a gorgeous new look, Cassie tries each city on for size as she searches for the life she’s meant to have . . . and the man she’s meant to love.

One (or more) Sentence Summary: What a great read. I get the title, but this is not a Christmas book. It is a book about great friends always being there for each other with romance (good and bad) tossed in. Great chick lit all year long!
I have to give a shout out to Henry and his lists!  Loved him as part of the book. 

Favorite Character(s):  I can't pick one, so I declare it a four-way tie between Cassie, Anouk, Kelly and Suzy. It would be so great to have such great friends (that live in such great cities!!)

Setting:  Paris, London and New York City - Perfect!

Fast read/slow read:  Just the right reading pace.  Christmas at Tiffany's kept me 100% engaged and wanting to come back for more, when I had to put it down (darn work)! 

Cover:  I just love it.  The little "Tiffany Blue" bag ties it all together!
