As a little girl, Jane has no one. Her mother, the powerful head of a major New York theater company, has no time for her. But she does have one friend: a handsome, comforting, funny man named Michael. He’s perfect, but only she can see him. And he can’t stay with Jane forever. He leaves her on her ninth birthday, promising that she’ll soon forget him.

When Jane is in her thirties, working for her mother’s company, she is just as alone as she was as a child. Her boyfriend hardly knows she’s there and is more interested in what Vivienne can do for his career. Her mother practically treats her as a slave in the office, despite the great success of Jane’s first play. But then she finds Michael—just the same as she remembers him—only now he’s not imaginary. For once in her life Jane is happy, and has someone who loves her back.

With the breathtaking momentum and gripping emotional twists that have made James Patterson a bestselling author all over the world, Sundays at Tiffany’s takes a fresh look at the timeless and transforming power of love.

Quotes & Awards

  • “What do women want? At this point in his career Mr. Patterson probably has a better answer than Freud did.”

    New York Times

  • “Patterson, here partnering with children’s book author Charbonnet, diverges from his usual mix of blood, suspense, and terror with this captivating tale of a young woman and her soul mate…Outstanding narration by Ellen Archer…one of best readers in the business. Highly recommended.”

    Library Journal (audio review)

  • “Ellen Archer gives a delicate shading to this story of unexpected love. She transitions from the childhood Jane to the adult Jane with a subtle change in tone while keeping Jane’s essential speech patterns. Archer’s portrayal of Jane’s powerful mother is just as convincing as those of Jane and Michael. Throughout the book, Archer resists the story’s pull toward sentimentality and keeps the performance both thoughtful and entertaining.”

    " A sweet love story with lots of twists. I was afraid either Jane or Michael would die at various points. A quick, easy read. Very touching and has almost a Nicholas Sparks quality to it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bex W | 12/12/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 11/17/2013

    " Liked the twist on a love story, but had some unnecessary swearing bombs in there. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shugak | 11/15/2013

    " Pefect for escapism. Not a lot of brainpower used to read but completely enjoyable. This one will stay in my collection and I will probably reread it in a bit of time...I always miss something the first time through. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kacey | 11/8/2013

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chole Allyson | 10/30/2013

    " This was a quick read. I liked the idea of the story, but wasn't a fan of the sex scene. I just kept thinking that it was a little weird...knowing that he was a friend to her as a young girl. It's not a book I would reccommend. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lauren | 10/5/2013

    " This book was stupid. A woman forming a relationship/having sex with an invisible man. Please. This was the first James Patterson I've read and after this, it will probably be the last. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michell | 9/28/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Addie Calvitt | 10/4/2012

    " Loved this light, fast-read story. This is a story that stretches the imagination somewhat but is still fun. I read this BEFORE watching the Lifetime movie based on the novel and am glad I read the book first--the book is so much better!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Meghan | 10/2/2012

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brandy | 8/18/2012

    " Though this book caught my interest initially I would have to say that it is kind of creapy. To meet your imaginary friend in real life when you're an adult and then fall in love with him...Hmm...that sounds kind of strange to me. Although it was somewhat entertaining. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dana | 5/23/2012

    " Not one of my favorites. Too predictable. "

    I have recommended it and will probably continue to recommend it for an entertaining read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ginnie | 5/23/2011

    " a bit disappointing - too formulatic. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amy | 5/17/2011

    " It's kind of weird. Having an imaginary friend turn into an actual guy that you fall in love with? But the main character is likeable so I overlooked the inital weirdness. And it is a love story after all, so you can't really go wrong. Easy summer read "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alyssa | 5/16/2011

    " Easy read. Not too much going on, not a lot of action or real character development, but good for a rainy day. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christina | 5/16/2011

    " Excellent story!! I will read this again and again. I never had an imaginary friend growing up and now I feel that I missed out. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Keri | 5/11/2011

    " Even though it was a little cheesy, it was a good book, a fast read, and kept my attention. If you're looking for something that's will make you laugh, cry and get mushy then this is a good book to read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lynn | 5/10/2011

    " Ugh. Bad story, kind of creepy, imaginary friend. Disappointed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carla | 5/9/2011

    " Really enjoyed the story, but it does have one naughty page. I actually like the Lifetime movie of this book as well, maybe even better than the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sydney | 5/9/2011

    " AN AMAZING READ! IT DEFINITLY HAD MANY MESSAGES THROUGHOUT IT, AND IT WAS A GREAT, EMOTIONAL READ! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cindy | 5/8/2011

    " First book of Patterson, that I have read. Love his romances! :) This is one of my favorites and cutest books I have read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 5/6/2011

    " I really liked this book. I don't normally like romantic,sappy stories but the idea of imaginary friends being supernatural beings touched my little-girl heart! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 5/6/2011

    " This was a cute diversion from what Patterson usually writes. Very easy to read with an intriguing, yet somewhat intangible plot line surrounding a girl and her imaginary friend. All in all, a cute love story from Patterson's lighter side of fiction. "
