Synopsis – This book is from the number 1 bestselling author of “PS, I Love You” and “Where Rainbows End” comes a love story with heart – and just a little bit of magic! Everything in Elizabeth Egan’s life has its place, from the espresso cups in her gleaming kitchen to the swatches and paint pots of her interior design business. Order and precision keep life under control – and Elizabeth’s heart from the pain and hurt she has suffered in the past. The only cloud on the horizon is her sister Saoirse, a red-haired whirlwind always leaving behind pieces, which Elizabeth struggles to pick up – including her six-year-old son Luke. Being a reluctant mother while trying to keep her business on track is a full-time job, one which leaves little room for error – or fun. Until, one day, a stranger unexpectedly comes into their lives. Ivan is carefree, spontaneous and always looking for adventure – everything that Elizabeth is not. In no time at all, he has crept under her skin and started to change her life in ways she could never have . She knows barely anything about Ivan – who he is and whether he is everything he seems. And, if there is a future for their blossoming relationship! Full of Cecelia Ahern’s trademark warmth and poignancy, “If You Could See Me Now” is a love story with heart – and just a little bit of magic!
My thoughts – when i read the back of this book, i thought it was going to be the usual run of the mill chick lit book. How wrong i was! i loved this book so much, i thought it was very unpredictable and it took me a few chapters to understand what was going on and who the character of Ivan actually was. The book took a topic that concerns many parents and then put the ‘parent’ in that situation. i have to say i felt a little bit of unease about the subject matter to start with and how it would work, but in my opinion it really did! i have a couple more books by cecelia ahern on my tbr pile and if i see more about i will definitaly buy them! a fantastic fantastic book!
