Excellent story...odd title!
I actually picked this book up in the U.K. and was trying find more by Ms. Rose. I thought I had when I came across this book...only to realize as I read the synopsis that it was the same book. I find it strange that the title was changed and I much prefer my copy which is titled "Could it be Magic?"
Nevertheless, I found this book to be highly enjoyable and recommend it to anyone who likes quirky romantic stories!

Jessica awakens n a hospital in which everyone calls her Mrs. Lauren Richardson, wife to Grant and mother of four children (Sophie, Nicole, Toby and Teddy). The kids are well behaved, but Jessica feels their sadness as order is their life. She loves each of the children especially brain damaged Teddy and connects with Lauren's sister Karen who she confides in that her memories are that of single in love Jessica Taylor and not that of mother and wife Mrs. Lauren Richardson.
On the surface Life As I Know It is a lighthearted romp that compares and a single career woman with a married mother. However, Melanie Rose's contemporary is actually much deeper with a subtle profundity that stuns the audience even with knowing how the tale will end. The light touch enhances the sobering finish that will have readers understand the real intent is not comparing lifestyles, but instead making a powerful case that being a woman means sacrificing personal desires to make a better life for loved ones.
