Publisher's Summary

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 keep Elizabeth's heart safe from the pain and hurt she has suffered in the past. Being a reluctant mother to her six-year-old nephew while trying to keep her design business on track is a full-time job for Elizabeth, and one that leaves little room for error, or fun. Until one day, when Ivan unexpectedly comes into their lives. The mysterious Ivan is carefree, spontaneous, and always looking for adventure: everything that Elizabeth is not. Yet just when Elizabeth is starting to trust him, it turns out that Ivan isn't at all who she thought he was. Playful and at times intensely moving, this is a novel about how seeing isn't always believing. Full of Cecelia Ahern's trademark warmth and poignancy, If You Could See Me Now is a story of enormous hear, and just a little bit of magic.

Ingenious story line, lovely narrator

Everyone has their own tastebuds (as my son says). Another reviewer hated this narrator. Perhaps it's because I'm a sucker for Scottish, Welsh and Irish accents, I totally enjoyed both readers. The voice for the imaginary friend was a tad odd, but uh, so is an invisible buddy, eh? By the end I thought his narration was spot on. The story was very unique and dealt with imaginary friends in a way I've never encountered before. Very creative, thought provoking and well worth the listen.
