Overview

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?

Mediocre:/ Didn't prefer the narrators voice- she ended EVERY sentence with a little intake of breath which was super annoying to listen to- that's not how people talk. It sounded "on edge" and theatrical. The book itself was slow and pretty low quality entertainment. I wish the relationship development had been more in depth- it wasn't really very romantic or realistic, and it droned on and on and ON about parts of the story you don't really care much about. You are constantly waiting for it to "get good" and then it's over.

It was a good listen, not my favorite Sophie Kinsella and not relatable. But a fun read. The narrator didn't fit my imagination well but I got used to her and even liked her by the end.

Loved the story line. Have to admit that at first, I didn't buy the narrator as her voice didn't fit my idea of the main character. One chapter in and she fit well in my mind's eye. This book kept my attention and made my very long commute not so very bad.

This novel was fun and while a little predictable, never disappointed me. It was fun, funny, and kept my attention. I have heard the narrator before and think she's great. She adds so much to the book.

Fun!

Once of the best, most fun books I've read in a while. It kept my attention and I was looking forward to driving to work the next day to see what happened next.

The story was bright and interesting and fun but the reader was exceptional and made this such a pleasure to listen to. The variety of UK accents was a hoot. My only criticism is that this is clearly and Engligh book set in England, why do they keep referring to "chips" instead of "crisps"? They're clearly talking about what are "crisps" in England and not "chips". It's weird to Americanize only one thing in the whole book and would have been better if they'd left it. We'd figure out what they were talking about, promise.

I just LOVE this author! And the narrator having an accent really makes it so much better, for me.

I liked it

This is cute & funny & will keep you listening. I don't always condone this moral subject matter but it seemed to work in this case. I like everything Sophie Kinsella writes but this is probably my favorite.

Kinsella, Sophie

Sophie Kinsella, aka Madeleine Wickham, raced to the top of the bestseller lists in September 2000 when her novel The Secret Dreamworld of A Shopaholic was published by Black Swan. The book’s heroine, Becky Bloomwood – a fun and feisty financial journalist who loves shopping but is hopeless with money – captured the hearts of readers worldwide and she has since gone on to further adventures in Shopaholic Abroad, Shopaholic Ties the Knot and Shopaholic and Sister, and has sold over two million copies to date. Sophie’s two stand-alone novels, Can You Keep A Secret and The Undomestic Goddess were both number one bestsellers, and have sold in the region of three quarters of a million copies each.

Sophie wrote her first novel under her real name, Madeleine Wickham, at the tender age of 24, whilst she was working as a financial journalist. The Tennis Party was immediately hailed as a success by critics and the public alike, and became a top ten bestseller. She has since published no fewer than six more novels as Madeleine Wickham, A Desirable Residence, Swimming Pool Sunday, The Gatecrasher, The Wedding Girl, Cocktails for Three and Sleeping Arrangements.

She submitted her first “Sophie Kinsella” novel anonymously to Black Swan, who were already her publishers, and it was snapped up without her editors knowing that she was already one of their authors. It was with the appropriately titled Can You Keep A Secret? that Sophie revealed her true identity for the first time.

Sophie was born in London. She studied music at New College, Oxford, but after a year switched to politics, philosophy and economics and gained a first after only two years studying. She has worked as a teacher and as a financial journalist. Married to a former opera singer, she has accompanied her husband professionally on the piano in concert tours of the Middle East and Africa. She lives in London with her husband and 3 children.
