Lexi wakes up in a hospital bed after a car accident, thinking it's 2004 and she's a twenty-five-year old with crooked teeth and a disastrous love life. But, to her disbelief, she learns it's actually 2007 - she's twenty-eight, her teeth are straight, she's the boss of her department - and she's married! To a good-looking millionaire! How on earth did she land the dream life??!
She can't believe her luck - especially when she sees her stunning new home. She's sure she'll have a fantastic marriage once she gets to know her husband again. He's drawn up a 'manual of our marriage,' which should help.
But as she learns more about her new self, chinks start to appear in the perfect life. All her old colleagues hate her. A rival is after her job. Then a dishevelled, sexy guy turns up...and lands a new bombshell. What happened to her? Will she ever remember? And what will happen if she does?
Remember Me is another smash hit in a long line of bestsellers for Sophie Kinsella. It is the story of a woman who last her memory and has to find it, along with all the secrets and develops along the way.
I wasn't the biggest fan of the romantic dynamics of the book, but it was entertaining as all get out to watch. It would have been a 5-star read until the last chapter. Not a bad ending, but I was hoping for something else.
I still want to know how Sophie is able to write the most cringe-worthy embarrassing scenes that make you almost want to turn away because they are so uncomfortable... yet at the same time you can't put it down because it's so hilarious. It is a rare gift to be able to balance that dynamic and Ms. Kinsella has it.
Most Kinsella fans have probably read this book (I am very late to the party), but I really had fun and if you haven't picked Remember Me up yet, I highly recommend it :)
