    A Gift to Remember is a perfect Christmas read. As a book-lover, I really appreciated the book-mad main character and the air of mystery and intrigue kept me turning pages rapidly.

    My Recap of A Gift to Remember :

    Darcy while cycling to work in New York crashes into a pedestrian who loses his memory from the knock. She works hard to solve the mystery of who Mr Harris really is and in trying to work out his life, she may just come to a few realisations about her own too.

    First Line of A Gift to Remember :

    “Anyone who says that money can’t buy happiness has clearly never been inside a bookstore.”

    My Thoughts on A Gift to Remember :

    Darcy is so like me in lots of ways that I adored reading about her. She is obsessed with books and all things literary, she works in a fab sounding book shop in NYC and her future ambitions to run bookish walking tours around NYC just sound like so much fun. I’d love to meet Darcy in real life as I think we’d spend hours talking about all the books in our lives. But with her nose stuck in a book so much, she does at times leave real life pass her by. At night, she dreams of meeting not Mr Right but her Mr Darcy.

    So when she bangs in to Mr Harris (literally!), you just know her life is going to change for the better. And Darcy sets off on a mysterious and puzzling quest as to Mr Harris’s real identity. I had no idea what direction this was taking and I was kept guessing and plotting until nearly the end of the book. I wasn’t expecting the twist and I loved it. I know this author is queen of the twists and every time I think, I’ll get this one but I NEVER do! The award for book trickery goes to Melissa Hill yet again :O

    The romance is perfect. Darcy and Mr Harris are like a match made in a book…oh wait…I forgot for a second that is what they are! They are both realistic and warm and just so genuine that I want the mushiest of scenes for them. And when Mr Harris came to the bookshop, my heart beat just those few beats faster than normal. So swoony, I felt starry eyed and had all the feels.

    As always a New York location never fails to excite me. Add in a bookshop background and lots of snow and this all makes for a vibrant and romantic setting. Every chapter starts with book lover quotes or famous quotes from books and so many of them are old favourites that it was lovely to see them in this book and they all just seemed so appropriate to the storyline. And I have to mention Bailey who is Mr Harris’s husky dog, I just want to hug him to death and buy him a hot dog.

    Overall this book made me swoon, made me laugh, puzzled the hell out of me and gave me a fantastic few hours entertainment. I loved it and have no doubt it will be reread again in the future.

    Who should read A Gift to Remember ?

    If you are a fan of puzzling books with great characters and a romantic, feel-good vive then you should check this one out. It gets my 5 star stamp of approval and that isn’t something I give easily.

    enjoyable read. I like Melissa Hill’s style. This is the 2nd of her books I have read. The one real challenge is her lack of editing.
    I guess I focus on details. In both her books there were significant pronoun, and wording mistakes. If it had one or two, I really wouldn’t even mention it. We are talking a whole lot more. I will probably read another of her books because she weaves an interesting story. But professional, she is not.
