Drop Dead Fred goes City of Angels

Those are the two movies this reminded me of. Only the imaginary friend isn't full of hijinks like Fred, but goodness, looking out for his kids like a fairy oddparent. Once they turn nine though, he disappears, forever, erasing all memory of him. Except for Jane. She doesn't forget, and when they meet again years later, he is shocked, surprised and elated that she remembers him. Then starts the romance, which for me was just odd. Its like growing up and hooking up with your old babysitter, or godparent. Its just strange. While nothing indecent happens as Jane is a child, its strange to watch these two fall in love. But there was typical JP plot twists and heart wrenchers. My favorite line of the whole book, which brought me to tears, was when Jane's mother tells her, "You're the love of my life." I think I was supposed to be more invested in the romance then the mother/daughter relationship, but the waterworks poured at that. A decent read, I couldn't put it down, but not JP's best. Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas will always be my favorite romance novel.

Jane is a lovely 32-year-old woman with an overbearing, highly critical mother and a gorgeous, insincere boyfriend. The best times of her life were indisputedly spent with her beloved Michael...her imaginary childhood friend, who saved her from years of loneliness when her mother viewed her as simply an inconvenience. And although Michael has been gone from her life for the better part of 23 years, he has never been absent from her heart...a decidedly unusual thing, since children are supposed to …
