Doesn’t everyone say you should marry your best friend?

Jaime Seger has two goals in life: marry her best friend, the man that owns her heart and soul, and buy her very own grand piano. But Christopher McKay, who has no idea Jaime’s been in love with him since she was eleven years old, never gets the memo and marries someone else.

When Christopher’s wife dies, Jamie finds herself helping him raise his young daughter. A year later, she is on the other end of a very unlikely proposal,promising everything she thought she ever wanted.

But can their friendship survive a marriage of convenience?



I don’t usually read stories like these, family drama and romance novels really aren’t up my alley. But I was looking for something fluffy and quick to read so when I stumbled upon a free promo for Christopher and Jaime I went ahead and picked it up.

If you haven’t noticed already this is a novella which I think is the perfect length for a story such as this. Any longer and I doubt it would hold my interest. One can only take so much of a story with the plot mainly being driven by miscommunication between the two main parties.

There were no surprises with this one but then again I didn’t expect there to be. It’s the kind of book you already know how it will go just by reading the summary. But as a short sweet read it hit the mark.

I did really like how the bulk of the story was told through the MC’s flashbacks and her husbands journal entries. It’s a nice twist on the typical romance novel. So it filled the gap for me between books nicely but I will probably forget about it as quickly as I read it.
