The Gift of a Lifetime

Summary: From the internationally-bestselling author of A Gift from Tiffany’s comes another New York Christmas love story make you fall in love all over again.

Hollywood movies are Beth’s passion. She hopes her life will always be filled with classic movie moments, where magical things happen every day. Her boyfriend Danny has always been the embodiment of her perfect Hollywood hero—though after seven years together the initial silver-screen romance has settled into something more predictable.

Then one morning at work just before Christmas, Beth receives an anonymous gift of a take-out coffee cup with a cryptic message. From there, she is given a series of other gifts and riddles directing her to some of NYC’s most popular landmarks—a treasure trail using unique rom-com-related prompts perfect for a movie-lover like Beth to decipher.

And she is forced to wonder: has Danny realized their relationship needs a boost—or could it be that charming new work colleague Ryan with his intense gaze, flirtatious smile, and almost encyclopedic movie knowledge, wants to sweep her off her feet? How would she feel about taking a chance on a leading man who seems determined to give her the Christmas gift of a lifetime…


Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

This was my first Melissa Hill book and I really say that I enjoyed it. It was such a sweet book (and especially perfect for the holidays!)

What I liked:

The cover.

The set-up of the story. A scavenger hunt through NYC with movie clues- oh I just LOVED that.

Beth. She was such a wonderful character. Full of love and hope and wonder at the world.


Bottom line: While there are things that I could quibble about in this book and the author did use some word trickery in places to make me think things were happening that were not exactly happening, I was willing to overlook my minor quibbles and just sink into this book and enjoy.
