Shopaholicpowerhouse 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. (Mar.)

I hope these characters lead to another great series of books!
She didn't get a bonus from work, her boyfriend Loser Dave has stood her up for the millionth time and her father has just died. She has a dead end job that's going nowhere, has frizzy hair and bad teeth. She knows that something has to change soon.
Unfortunately, that change comes in the form of a car accident.
Upon waking up in the hospital, Lexi is a new woman. Her bad teeth are replaced with white shiny ones, her frizzy hair is now sleek and lovely and she has a new job as director of her own department.
Hang on, that can't be right, can it?
Lexi quickly learns that she has amnesia and she's forgotten the last three years of her life. Her mother has gotten older, her younger sister is now sixteen and she has a husband named Eric she doesn't remember marrying.
As Lexi tries to get used to her new life, she's in for a few rude awakenings. None of her friends talk to her any longer, she's become the bitch boss from hell and, if that's not bad enough, it seems she's been having an affair with Jon, a sexy, and very handsome, architect.
Lexi will have to act quickly otherwise her entire new life will start to crumble. But that could be exactly what she needs to remember everything....
I am a huge fan of Sophie Kinsella. Every time I open one of her novels, I know that I'm in for a laugh out loud read that fills me with joy. Her books are always funny, touching in all the right places and just plain fun.
I was not disappointed with Remember Me? In fact, this is Kinsella's best effort yet. Lexi is an improvement on past leading women that Kinsella has written. Instead of being a little bit daft and slightly dumb, Lexi is smart and intuitive and very intelligent.Read more ›
I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a light read, without being bored to death by superficial characters.
Lexi Smart is having a crappy night, in her words "On a scale of one to ten we're talking ...a minus six. And it's not like I even have very high standards."
Standing in the rain after a night out clubbing with friends, Lexi just wants to find a taxi, get home and kick off her agonizing boots. Yup, it's been a crap day all right, her boyfriend (Loser Dave) stood her up and her second-rate job managed to screw her out of the Christmas bonus on a technicality. Tomorrow promises to be even worse though, it's her father's funeral. Before she can moan about the state of her life any further Lexi tops the night off by slipping on the wet street and tumbling down a flight of stairs.
When Lexi wakes up she's in a London hospital, but hold on something's a little off... she's in a private room and her nails are manicured, her teeth are perfect (guess they can't call her Snaggletooth anymore) her body is toned and thin (squeal) and her handbag is Vuitton.
The nurse also mentioned that she was in a car accident (in a Mercedes no less) but Lexi can't drive and she definitely can't afford that car or that purse. When her Mother and sister show up Lexi starts to panic because her mother looks strange and damn, what's happened to her little sister, she's all grown up?Read more ›

One of Sophie's great reads after You've Got My Number! Good writing, humour, plot, message, ending. For anyone interested in knowing how an injured brain thinks, rationalizes.Published on Jan. 19 2014 by Claudine Dee
The ending was a little predictable. It moved quickly enough but there were no surprises. Too bad you could see the ending coming too early in the storyPublished on Dec 28 2013 by Michelle Jakubowski
