Format – Paperback


Synopsis – When Emma’s boyfriend Leo turns up at her special birthday dinner unforgivably late and horribly drunk, embarrassing her in front of her family, she decides enough is enough. Why can’t someone just wave a magic wand over him and bring him back refurbished as a proper boyfriend and save her the trouble? But when Leo meets Isabel and starts changing before her very eyes, Emma realises she should be careful what she wishes for…


My Thoughts – Carole Matthews is fast becoming one of my favourite chick lit authors. Her books are always very good, funny and hook you in. This book was like that, however, the difference is this one actually has a great big dose of magic stuffed in the pages. This is actually my favourite book by this author i have read, so far.


This book centres on Emma and Leo, two people that are destined to be together, but just cannot see it themselves. Then you throw in the mysterious Isobel and it is a recipe for a disaster in some ways. There is an awful lot of two-ing and fro-ing between the two main characters and at times i just wanted to scream at them to get it together and stop being so silly! It was a brilliant read, the chick lit with the fantasy aspect thrown in was a brilliant twist and i really enjoyed reading this book.


I have several other books by this author on my TBR pile and i cant wait to get around to reading them, a brilliant book for any chick lit lover. A very easy read, something to escape into.


Rating – 4/5
