If You Could See Me Now by Cecelia Ahern
Tender, magical and captivating - a story of family, friends, and the unlikeliest of romances . . .
In the Town of Hearts, one woman has hers firmly under lock and key...
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.
But 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...
