If you could see me now by Cecelia Ahern

If You Could See Me Now 
'From the internationally bestselling author of PS, I Love You and Where Rainbows End comes an enchanting novel -- with more than a little magic! What if love was right there in front of you -- you just couldn't see it? Elizabeth Egan is too busy for friends. As a reluctant mother to her sister Saoirse's young son Luke and with her own business to run, every precious moment is made to count. But with Saoirse crashing in and out of their lives, leaving both her sister and her son reeling, Luke and Elizabeth are desperately in need of some magic. Enter Ivan. Wild, spontaneous and always looking for adventure, in no time at all Ivan has changed Elizabeth in ways she could never have imagined. But is Ivan too good to be true? Has Elizabeth opened her heart only to risk it being broken again? As for Ivan, he thought he was there to help Luke not Elizabeth -- or himself!'
I have to say that I have never come across a story that surprised me as much as this one did!  I thought I was going to sit down and read a comfortable easy read story about the relationship between aunt and nephew/son with the added complication of a new love but boy was I wrong!  In an instant, this story transformed into a fairy tale..  I absolutely loved it!  Also, I did not realise it before but the title to the story gives away the purpose of the book...  You will know what I mean when you read the book!  Absolute genius!

I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who loves fairy tale type stories and love stories...

If it is possible I give this book a 100 out of 10!!!
