Something From Tiffany's by Melissa Hill.

I felt this book started off a little slow.  It was nothing different from the average chick-lit books with a Christmas twist.  Set in New York the reader meets two guys trying to sort their Christmas presents.  Both buy gifts from the famous Tiffany's store but things go wrong when their gifts get mixed up.

For a while I felt like nothing much was happening but around half way through the book the story really picked up pace and there were lots of twists and turns making the book really interesting.  I got to a point where I thought the plot would be quite predictable but then things took an unexpected turn and I really enjoyed reading until the end.

There's not as many festive details as I would like to read in a Christmas book, but then a lot of the story takes place after New Year so that makes sense.

There are lots of very likeable characters in the book. I really enjoyed reading Rachel's story and couldn't wait for her to find out the truth about her gift.

All in all this is a sweet story perfect for Christmas, full of romantic proposals and a little touch of festive cheer.

The back page blurb:
Doesn't every girl dream of getting . . . something from Tiffany's?
It's Christmas Eve. And on 5th Avenue in New York City, two very different men are shopping for gifts for the women they love. 
Gary is buying his girlfriend Rachel a charm bracelet. Partly to thank her for paying for their holiday-of-a-lifetime to New York. But mainly because he's left his Christmas shopping far too late.
Whereas Ethan's looking for something a little more special - an engagement ring for the first woman to have made him happy since he lost the love of his life.
But when the two men's shopping bags get confused, and Rachel somehow ends up with Ethan's ring, the couples' lives become intertwined. And, as Ethan tries to reunite the ring with the woman it was actually intended for, he finds it trickier than expected. 
Does fate have other ideas for the couples? Or is there simply a bit of Tiffany's magic in the air ...
