Book Summary (from jacket):
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 9of 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 als9o 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 com0plete with secrets, schemes, and intrigue. How on earth did all this happen? Will she ever remember? And what will happen when she does?

My Review:
I LOVED this book. I am loving Sophie Kinsella's new characters in this novel and Twenties Girl. I have to admit I've had this  book on my shelf for probably a couple years, but I was so burnt out on Becky from the Shopaholic series that I never got around to reading this one.

Now I'm sorry I waited so long. I loved the character of Lexi. She's fun, smart and quirky. When she wakes up from her car accident, she determines that she's going to make the best of this strange situation - including moving back in with a husband she doesn't know, into a house she's never seen and visiting with friends she's never met. She's convinced herself that she's just woken up to the Dream Life. Multimillionaire husband (who's nice!), awesome penthouse loft, she's gone from peon to director at her job... until it starts to unravel.

She tries very hard to make it all work - which I love about her. She tries to become this new person, but it doesn't quite make sense with the person that she knows and she can't quite figure out how this all came about. The book is about her discovering what happened, who she really is and finally, of course, making it all work out for the best.

Like I said, I loved this book. It was a quick read and fun. I found myself laughing to myself several times throughout the course of the book and was a little sad when it ended.

This is my honest opinion. The book came from my personal TBR pile and I was not compensated in any way for this review.
