The hilarious romantic comedy from NUMBER ONE BESTSELLING AUTHOR Sophie Kinsella
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?

Shopaholic, powerhouse Kinsella delights again with her latest, a winning if unoriginal tale of amnesia striking an ambitious shrew and changing her life for the better. After taking a nasty bump on the head, Lexi Smart awakens in a hospital convinced that it s 2004 and that she s just missed her father s funeral. It s actually three years later, and she no longer has crooked teeth, frizzy hair and a loser boyfriend. Initially wowed by what she s become a gorgeous, cut-throat businesswoman Lexi soon finds herself attempting to figure out how it happened. As her personality change and lost memory threaten her job, Lexi tries to dredge up some chemistry with her handsome albeit priggish husband, Eric, though the effort is unnecessary with Eric s colleague Jon, who tells Lexi that she was about to leave Eric for him. Amnesia tales may be old hat, but Kinsella keeps things fresh and frothy with workplace politicking, romantic intrigue and a vibrant (though sometimes caricatured) cast. Though the happy ending won t come as a surprise, readers will be rooting for Lexi all along.

Loved this story of rags to riches but in reverse. Somehow despite the amnesia Lexi was a really believable character who you root for all the way through
Feel good story
Hard to put down! A tad far fetched at times but brilliantly executed
I LOVED this book. Brilliant read. Just wished it was longer & told how Eric reacted to the ending. Gutted it's finished. The 3rd book I've read from this author & I'll keep reading. :)
