Summary (from Goodreads):
When twenty-eight-year-old Lexi Smart wakes up in a London hospital, she’s in for a big surprise. Her teeth are perfect. Her body is toned. Her handbag is Vuitton. Having survived a car accident—in a Mercedes no less—Lexi has lost a big chunk of her memory, three years to be exact, and she’s about to find out just how much things have changed.
Somehow Lexi went from a twenty-five-year-old working girl to a corporate big shot with a sleek new loft, a personal assistant, a carb-free diet, and a set of glamorous new friends. And who is this gorgeous husband—who also happens to be a multimillionaire? With her mind still stuck three years in reverse, Lexi greets this brave new world determined to be the person she…well, seems to be. That is, until an adorably disheveled architect drops the biggest bombshell of all.
Suddenly Lexi is scrambling to catch her balance. Her new life, it turns out, comes complete with secrets, schemes, and intrigue. How on earth did all this happen? Will she ever remember? And what will happen when she does?
With the same wicked humor and delicious charm that have won her millions of devoted fans, Sophie Kinsella, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Shopaholic & Baby, returns with an irresistible new novel and a fresh new heroine who finds herself in a life-changing and utterly hilarious predicament…
My Thoughts: I was actually impressed that i didn’t find too many cliches in this story. Yeah, the ending was a little predictable, but I expected that from Kinsella. Oddly enough, the fact that Lexie ended the story in the relationship status that she did surprised me. I had it pegged that she would make a certain relationship decision, but it hadn’t occurred to me that it wouldn’t go completely in the direction I had anticipated. I was also glad that at no point did Lexie experience all of her memories flooding back at once. At the end of the book, Lexie recovered a single memory from the past few years. It made me think a little about what it would feel like to recover a memory after having lost it.
