Book Description

Feb. 26 2008
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….

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?

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

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.)

4.0 out of 5 stars Great, light and fun Jan. 19 2014

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.

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 story

This is an enjoyable book, great for those times you want something that reads just like a rom-com. Don't over analyse it and it'll provide you a few hours of entertainment and probably a few laughs. Why not?

3.0 out of 5 stars Silly dramatic fun! Aug. 29 2013
By Cee Ess TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
This is my second Kinsella book to consume; I say consume because it's an easy book to read fast. The first was "Twenties Girl" which I liked better overall, but this one is a funny bundle of laughs. One minute Twenty-eight year old Lexi is partying with work pals and then next minute she wakes up in the hospital with amnesia, having forgotten the last three years of her life. The premise is far-out, but take it for what it is and go along for the ride as Lexi tries to sort out who she is and what's important to her. The strength of this book is certainly its creative humour tagged to notion of being true to yourself and trusting your instincts.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOL funny, addictively hard to put down Aug. 7 2013
By Buggy TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was a super fun read as all of Kinsella's books are. Not too much brain-power needed, just a good time. If you're in the mood for chick-lit it doesn't get much better than this. REMEMBER ME was addictively hard to put down as well as LOL funny in places and I got sucked right into the chaos of the heroine's life and the double romance. Imagine not remembering that you're having an affair.

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?

3.0 out of 5 stars worth a two year wait? not really! March 16 2013
By Linus
Format:Hardcover
I started reading this book when I found it on the bookshelf in a hotel I was staying in two years ago. I got about a third of the way through before I left and was feeling intrigued, but not keen enough to buy the book myself to find out what happened.

I have finally come across it in the local library and completed it. And... it was ok. Sophie Kinsella is skilled at what she does and like all her books it is fast paced and addictive reading. I've read most of her books, but all borrowed from the library as I don't think I'd want to read them again.

I found Lexi fairly likeable, with the redeeming feature that she is generally honest, not a serial liar like the increasingly irritating Becky Brandon in the Shopaholic books. I became a little bored of the constant questions at the start of the book, and many things were never really explained, like what actually happened after she hit her head the first time? Why was Jon "between cars"? Lexi mother comes across as a strange character - several of Kinsella's mother figures are either non-existent or completely unsupportive - I wonder if there is some deeper reason for this. And, as many others have said, the ending was somewhat rushed.

Typical Kinsella fare then - light and amusing but a lot of loose or poorly explained ends which let it down.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite Sophie Kinsella book yet! Feb. 2 2012
Format:Hardcover
I have read every Sophie Kinsella book - including her books under her real name Madeline Wickham and this is by far my favorite. I really feel for Lexi waking up and not remembering anything and this seemingly perfect life she has. The supporting characters are great. Sometimes I find myself cringing with embarrassment over Kinsella's main leads but i find Lexi really refreshing. She is still the somewhat awkward persona that Kinsella enjoys writing but with more common sense! Really a great light read! I stayed up all night to finish it!

5.0 out of 5 stars How could we forget you March 11 2008
Format:Hardcover
I have to say this book was great! I read it in two days! It was fun to "meet" the characters as Lexi met them in the book. This book was a humorous yet telling story about what it would be like to wake up with no memory and to have to lead a life that you have no idea how to navigate, to live with a husband that you don't remember meeting. I felt for Lexi as she tried to live the life she was told she had and to follow the rules that she set for herself in the yerars that she lost!

I hope these characters lead to another great series of books!
