Christopher and Jaime (Pianos and Promises) by Jennifer Peel

caj-jp-bookcoverJaime 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 will Christopher help Jaime finally realize both of her dreams, or will she only be left with broken promises?

I give this book 4 stars!

This book I enjoyed reading, I liked reading the flashbacks of Jaime’s and Christopher’s life and I’m happy that there was a little angst in there, I like the from friends to lovers theme and this was no different.
I liked the background of how Jaime and Christopher were childhood friends and Jamie had a longtime crush on Christopher which wasn’t reciporated as Christopher went onto marry Bianca and had a little girl named Allie with her, I’m pleased that Jaime did at least try to move on by travelling the world and dating but she comes back when Bianca dies and she becomes Allie’s nanny and a mother figure to her.
At this point of the book I was actually hoping that when she said she was going to leave to other stuff that she actually would but Christoper persuades her to marry him and she does and now two years later she wants a divorce she’s realised that he doesn’t love her the way he used to love his first wife.
I liked how Jaime became strong at this point as Christopher ends up in an accident and he needs Jamie more than ever and she finds his journal which at times when Jamie was reading it I thought Christopher had no backbone when it came to his first wife and he could only be himself with Jamie and my heart broke for her at times but I liked reading the flashbacks and reading his thoughts and seeing how he actually felt for Jamie and there were some parts that made me happy and sad.
I liked how Chrstopher tried to stop the divorce from happening and I enjoyed the ending and even though everything was all wrapped up and the story didn’t drag on I could have happily read more but I’m looking forward to reading the next story in this series.
