Christmas at Tiffany’s by Karen Swan

 Cassie is celebrating her tenth anniversary with her husband Gil.  Gil was her first serious boyfriend and they live on a grand Scottish estate.  Cassie is removed from the world, while her three fabulous friends Kelly, Anouk, and Suzy live in the heart of things in New York City, Paris, and London respectively.  Her three friends have come to visit for the tenth anniversary party, but when Cassie makes a devastating discovery, they are quick to whisk her away.  They set her on a new path with a plan to discover who she really is and what she wants in life.  She spends four months in each City.  Cassie allows the ladies to make her over at first, but comes into her own by the end with a new outlook on life and a new love.

I really enjoyed this novel.  The characters were fantastic.  Cassie was intriguing herself, but I really enjoyed how the novel explored the secondary characters as well.  I love how Cassie had to move to a new location and new life and explore what that would mean.  She definitely has her ups and downs, but I think it really helped her find herself. 

This book is called Christmas at Tiffany’s and there is a definite Christmas celebration with Tiffany’s involved.  I did read it over Christmas, but this is a book that can be enjoyed any time of year as it doesn’t dwell on Christmas throughout the novel.  It is more a novel of self-discovery.

Overall, if you are looking for a good read about a woman finding herself, I would highly recommend this novel.
