Remember Me? by Sophie Kinsella

January 31st, 2009 by Debbie's World of Books


I give this one 4 out of 5 stars.

Description: 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?

This book was a lot of fun to read.  Lexi was such a fun character who at first appears to have gotten the dream transformation.  I know I always pictured myself losing two clothing sizes, having perfect teeth, a handsome husband and a career on the fast track.  But this book really makes you think if that is what is most important.  The relationship between Lexi and Eric was so dysfunctional it was funny and I was rooting for Jon the whole time.  I’m glad Lexi ended up sticking it to all the jerks at her company in the end and only wish I could have seen their reaction after they found out what Lexi achieved.  Definitely recommend this as a put a smile on your face read.
