Book Review / Remember Me? by Sophie Kinsella

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…

What I liked about the story...  This is my second Sophie Kinsella re-read this year and I couldn't wait to start it.  This story was just as good as I remembered it.   What I liked the most would have to be seeing Lexi, after the accident, try and find out why she had become the person she had.  She had gone from being happy with crooked teeth to being an unhappy strict bitch boss type person.  You also have another character called Jon in this story who I have to say is my favourite character by far.  I won't spoil the story by saying who he is or what is his place in the story but a very important character to the story.

What I didn't like with this story...  There was nothing obvious about the story that I didn't like.  There were parts that I felt the story dragged a bit and got a bit boring but it soon picked up when Lexi discovers something about work and needs to do something about it. 

In summary...  Such a fun and easy read.  Exactly what I wanted to read at the time and exactly what I hoped it would be as a re-read.  OK so this story is very predictable but that is what I wanted it to be so that's ok.  If you are looking for something fun and easy to read, especially as we near towards Spring and Summer (which are usually my favourite times to read books of this style) then you should give this a go.
