Summary

From Melissa Hill, author of A Gift from Tiffany's , comes A Gift to Remember --another New York Christmas love story to warm your heart

Darcy Archer works in a small bookstore in Manhattan. A daydream believer, she refuses to settle for anything less than being swept off her feet by the perfect man... literally.

One day, when cycling to work, Darcy accidentally crashes into a sharply dressed gentleman walking his dog. He is knocked out cold, rushed to hospital and the poor pup gets left behind. Wracked with guilt, Darcy takes the dog and makes plans to reunite him with his owner, Aidan. As she discovers the mysterious stranger's world of books, travel, adventure and all the wonderful things she's ever dreamed about, Darcy builds a picture of this man and wonders if he could be THE ONE...

But does fantasy match reality? What happens when Prince Charming wakes up? Will Aidan be the happy ever after she's always imagined?

Publisher's Weekly Review

Darcy Archer is late for work on the day she slams into a pedestrian on her bicycle, and while the handsome man she mows down is mostly uninjured, his memory is gone. Stuck with a mysterious wrapped gift, a Husky who knows more than he's letting on, and a handsome, rich amnesiac, bookish and escapist Darcy sets off on a mission to untangle the secrets of Aidan Harris's life and bring back his memory. Darcy's story, snooping through whatever she can discover of Aidan's personal life, is occasionally punctuated with bits of backstory from Aiden's point of view leading up to the accident, but referring only to his "mission" or the "item" he is trying to acquire lends an additional layer of vagueness to the novel without actually adding much to the story. Nevertheless, this is a cute and sweet Christmas romance that will appeal to fans of the genre in search of a lighthearted read. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
