Well, this book. Let me tell you the story…
I first read it about 8/9 years ago and the storyline stuck with me; twenty-something woman, in an awful accident, loses three years of memory and has to fit into a new ‘perfect’ life of luxury ‘loft style living’, marriage and leadership when really she is more used to comfort, unreliable boyfriends and taking a backseat. As her life continues in this new world, things start to unravel and she begins to notice that things aren’t as perfect as she first thought. I loved the whole concept of the story.
Fast-forward to present day, I keep seeing Sophie Kinsella’s name floating about being recommended online. I see her books in shops. Some of my own books were being compared to hers. She was everywhere and I planned on researching and reading some of her books to see what the big deal was. Then, I had an urge to re-read ‘Remember Me’ and what do I find? Sophie bloomin’ Kinsella! She was already an author that I loved!
So, I did an Amazon order for 3 of her books. This one, and two I’d never read before. I had to read this one first and I whizzed through it. Even though I knew what was going to happen, the last section had me hooked as though I’d never read it before and my heart was racing as the end neared.
Filled with marriage manuals, uncontrollable whippets and a ‘Mont Blanc’, this is an absolute perfect read filled with humour, desire and the right about of chick-lit cringe.
Lexi wakes up in a hospital bed after a car accident, thinking she’s twenty-five with crooked teeth and a disastrous love life. But, to her disbelief, she learns it’s actually three years later – she’s a super-toned twenty-eight-year-old, her teeth are straight, she’s the boss of her department – and she’s married to a good-looking millionaire!
She can’t believe her luck – especially when she sees her stunning new loft apartment. And she’ll definitely have a fantastic marriage once she gets to know her husband again. He’s drawn up a ‘marriage manual’, which should help.
But soon she realises her perfect life isn’t all it seems. All her old friends hate her. A rival is after her job. Then a dishevelled, sexy guy turns up… and lands a new bombshell.
What the **** happened to her? Will she ever remember? And what will happen if she does?
