As soon as I read the blurb of this book; because hey it involves a bookstore and who doesn't like a bookstore setting?!?! So this another factor in my decision to pick this book up! This the first book I have read by Melissa Hill and I have to say I'm totally sold on her writing, there's something quite blissful about it!! This story has a classic falling in love and romance, wildly misunderstanding's with a bit of guilt over an accident, unlikely friendships are formed, family that only want to do the best for their loved one's, Oh and there's a cute dog too!
In A Gift To Remember we meet Darcy Archer, who is the manager of a small bookstore in Manhattan. I being a book worm myself I immediately felt a connection with her and then when I read on I know I love the characters loving and caring nature. Darcy wakes up one morning to find she is terribly late for work, it snowing outside and she rides her bycycal to work. On the way Darcy is in her own little world, thinking about her love story's that she read the night before and without being able to stop to miss the walking man and his dog; missing the dog but knocking down the man; who is out cold! Darcy cant belive what she has done, she does the formality's with the police and finds her self left at the accident seen with the man's dog and a beautiful rapped gift, and not knowing which hospital they took him to.
Darcy is racked with gilt over the accident and makes it her mission to find him, so she could say how sorry she was and to give his dog and present back. When she does find him she finds out his name is Aidan Harris only he can't remember who he is or where he lives or which whom he lives with. Darcy's gilt fuels her to find out who this man is and he seemed happy to have some help, as he his mobile was broken in the accident; so unable to ring family and loved one's to help fill in the gaps. I love these two; willing him not to have a partner because these two were perfect for each other.
I also found Darcy's relationship with her aunt intriguing like there was something there just had to read on, because Katherine only wants the best for her. Darcy found herself living with her aunt when she was 12 years old after she loosed both parents in a car accident. Her aunt was single and has no children of her own, but her sister had wanted Darcy brought up in the family. Her aunt was really up in the Manhattan seen going to all the glamorous parties and events, which is the total opposite to Darcy but you do see their relationship become more truthful.
Melissa Hill writing in this book is on the button because she adds turns in the book I never saw coming, so found my self feeling confused as Darcy as to why nobody was not worried about Aidan. This confusion doesn't last to long as Melissa fills in those gaps and then it all makes perfect sense! A another thing I like that Melissa added in to the beginning of most of the chapters there is quote from books and are relevant to the chapter in some way! Which of course I love, love, love and I've picked some of my favourites out to share with you know:
' Dreams are illustrations... from the book your soul is writing about you' Marsha Norman
' What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.' Ralph Waldo Emerson
' Books are not made for furniture, but there is nothing else that so beautifully furnishes a house.' Henry Ward Beecher
' Every man's memory is his private literature' Aldous Huxley
' I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.' Jorge Luis Borges ( I like this particular one as I have it on a cushion cover!)
' You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.' A.A. Milne
The plot to this book is exceptional in my opinion and had me gripped to find out more, I mean 'Do Darcy and Aidan have a chance to be together?' , ' Is Kathrine holding back?' , and ' Is everything Darcy is finding out truly about Aidan?' but all this is make clear when you get to the ending. So I can only say that is some writing style you've got there Melissa and I'm looking forward to reading a lot more of your books!!!
I think it's quite safe to say to have nothing but love for this unique and beautifully crafted story!!! and I highly recommend it to you fellow readers!!!!!!!
This is the first Melissa Hill book which I have read and I loved it, the story had just enough mystery and plot twists to keep me guessing right until the end. I loved the character of Darcy, she’s just so sweet and helpful and would make a wonderful best friend as she seems incredibly loyal, plus she would probably always have the book you wanted to read in her pile. I loved how she bonds with Bailey the Dog and all the way through I was hoping if she didn’t get the man then maybe she would get the dog.
I thought this book flowed really well and I liked the chapters from Aidan’s point of view as I was able to build my own picture of him from the hints given, the picture I was building was similar to Darcy’s so the ending was a bit of a shock.
I loved this book it was a perfect read for me with a little mystery and romance and any book set in New York at Christmas is a winner with me as I’d love to experience this myself one day.
