When I heard Karen Swan had written a sequel to Christmas at Tiffany s I just had to read it I needed to know what happened to Cassie did she really get her happy ever after, after divorcing ex husband Gil So when I was asked to be part of the blog tour by Katie at Panmacmillan I jumped at the chance.With Christmas at Tiffany s Karen Swan had created characters that were solid and well rounded, surrounding Cassie with a friendship circle that bounced off each other, each with different characteristics that fully complimented each other The beauty about reading a sequel is that we have already been introduced to the main players and in such a way that they seem like old friends, making the transition into a new novel easy There is always the worry that a second book isn t going to be quite as good as the first, especially when the first was such a big success but, for me, this was equally as good I loved it.The love and respect that Cassie and Henry, the main characters in this book, share literally oozes out of the pages, yet somehow Cassie is holding back, her disastrous first marriage is having a damaging effect on her relationship, she just cannot seem to take that final step into a full commitment and it s this that is to the detriment of her relationship
really liked this book I probably should have given it four stars instead of three I just had been in a reading slump at the time so I felt it wasnt as good as Christmas at Tiffany s.This book definitely didn t disappoint This is my second Karen Swan book, however I think I might have to start adding of her books to my list.It was just such a good story So much drama, but drama that is like real life Nothing seems way out there, it is all so realistic The characters are so likeable.I found myself annoyed with Cassie many times throughout the book, I kinda wanted to just tell her YOU RE BEING SO STUPID But she finally came to her senses I felt like the ending was rushed a tiny bit though It definitely left room for there to be a third one i
The story is set two years after Christmas at Tiffanys It s nice already knowing the characters so the scene doesn t have to be set for long Archie has a heartache and I really hate the nurse who won t let Cassie in I would have defended her against that nurse The only defence to Henry is he seems to be falling apart, Suzy is not getting an excuse I find her annoying this time throughout Throwing in a cousin called Gem the story goes back to marriage will they or won t they Cassie marriage doesn t have to be a death sentence and Henry you can be happily unmarried and love someone deeply She has just came out a ten year marriage that ended in disaster but I also get Henry isn t Gil it s very hot and cold Cassie does seem walked all over in many parts of this book honestly when she does snap it s great to read The side story about Kelly in this book is so sad and it s lovely how it s mentioned again near the end up Henry thinking it s Cassie.I did not like the ulimation but i love the lists he always writes for Cassie and I d say every time someone mentioned Gil marrying again I m better off without him In Cornwall Luke is back and it seems like he s changed but no he hasn t Even of he had I d never forgive him for tho
Good Just about remembered the first book Easy reading. On paper I should have enjoyed this one than I did Having read and enjoyed The Paris Secret by her previously, I gave that a solid 4 stars or 8 10 However, this one didn t quite hit the mark for me Cassie loves Henry and Henry loves Cassie This should have been a good romantic read and a quick read at that It took me some time to get through it, putting it to one side quite regularly as it wasn t just gripping me I can t really put my finger on what the problem was and the reason why I didn t enjoy it as much as I should Possibly, my reading mojo wasn t alway
well definitely not nearly as good as Christmas At Tiffany s which means it was a very disappointing read Besides the last 50 pages I thought the characters just sounded like crotchety middle aged woman who I wanted to slap Seriously none of the characters were at all relatable Cassie turned into an even larger push over and Suzi turned into a bully I realized in the
Karen Swan belongs to my auto buy authors Since I ve discovered her book, I make sure to read all of her new releases, and so when I heard that Summer at Tiffany s is out in July, it was like Christmas coming earlier this time I know it is a sequel to Christmas at Tiffany s , which I sadly haven t read yet, although I started it, hoping to be able to read it before Summer , unfortunately mission is not completed, didn t have enough time, but Summer at Tiffany s can be absolutely read as a stand alone novel There is enough information about the past and flashbacks that make us feel comfortable and give us retrospection and explain events or why the characters feel or act the way they are.Karen Swan has thrown me right to the heart of the story, I truly felt as if I knew the characters and they were all incredibly well written and developed They were not flawless, they made mistakes and they also made me feel desperate from time to time, but this is what I call a true character Cassie was great and I d like to have
great finish to the Christmas at Tiffany s series I m going to miss these characters, they made me laugh and cry and felt like my own group of friends I m sad it s over but it s just another amazing book to add to my Karen Swan obsession Summer at Tiffany s is my first Karen Swan book I did want to read Christmas at Tiffany s beforehand to get the backstory of our main characters but this book can be read and enjoyed as a standalone Some of my fellow bloggers speak very highly of Karen s books so I went into Summer at Tiffany s with high expectations.Cassie and Henry are due to get married and with a Tiffany ring on her finger all that s left is for Cassie to plan her dream wedding But it s actually Henry who is pushing for a date, with Cassie appearing quite reticent and not wanting to plan the wedding at all, not sure if she ever wants to get married Somebody who does want to get married is Henry s young cousin, Gem and it s down to Cassie to head to Cornwall to prevent that wedding from going ahead, while Henry goes off on a sailing expedition, things between him and Cassie being than a little strained when he leaves Cassie s arrival in Cornwall isn t without its problems or drama and she is soon forced to make some life changing decisions.Summer at Tiffany s is a hefty read, but Karen Swan really does keep the story going on every single page I was never bored because of the really strong characterisation and, as the story progresses, drama that Karen fills the story with I very quickly saw the characters as real people, and found myself becoming caught up in their lives, as everything began to unfold I think what I liked the most was how real the story felt, rather than the predictable let s fall in lov
5 stars is not nearly enough When my book buddy and I went on a quest to read all chick lit christmas stories last Dec., we had no clue we d stumble upon on of our favorite books, Christmas at Tiffany s THEN we
