The blurb:

Jane Margaux is a lonely little girl. Her mother, a powerful Broadway producer, makes time for her only once a week, for their Sunday trip to admire jewelry at Tiffany’s. Jane has only one friend: a handsome, comforting, funny man named Michael. He’s perfect. But only she can see him. Michael can’t stay forever, though. On Jane’s ninth birthday he leaves, promising her that she’ll soon forget him.

Years later, in her thirties, Jane is just as alone as she was as a child. And despite her own success as a playwright, she is even more trapped by her overbearing mother. Then she meets someone – a handsome, comforting, funny man. He’s perfect. His name is Michael . . .

This book was a quick and easy read. But that’s about all it had going for it. It was entirely too cliche, and sometimes a little weird. The writing was pretty stilted, and the plot twists were nothing but convenient. This is exactly what it purports to be – a cheesy little romance. Good for when you can’t handle something more substantial.
