Publisher's Summary

Emma and Leo have been together forever, but their relationship seems to have lost its sparkle. When Leo turns up to Emma's 30th birthday dinner unforgivably late and extremely drunk, she can't help wishing for someone to wave a magic wand and turn Leo into a reliable and considerate boyfriend. Then Leo's path crosses with a decidedly unusual girl called Isobel, and as he falls under her spell, Emma sees him change before her very eyes. Soon she regrets wishing for a new Leo at all. If Emma's going to win Leo back, she'll need to do some changing of her own....

    Story
    "Hmm..."

    Still a little undecided as to if this story is perfect easy listening or just plain odd although the premise of the story is quite sweet and unlike any other Carol Mathews book I have read or listened to. The main male protagonist Leo is likeable after a few chapters but I never did warm to Emma and in the end rather wished that the story ended a different way (I will not give a spoiler away though). It wasn’t particularly predicable however one of the characters (the most *magical*) could have been written better and at times I had to rewind the story as I wasn’t sure if I had missed hearing parts or the story had just skipped forward in general. The best I can say is that it is not a sleazy or salacious tale which makes a pleasant change these days!...although for stories with a ‘magical twist’ you would be better off purchasing one of Christina Jones ‘Mad Villages’ series as the ‘magic’ in those books translates much better.

    Story
    "Ok but nowhere near as good as she normally writes"

    Didn't like the story at all. Totally far fetched. Usually love her books but it was really poor and a bit boring to be honest.
