REMEMBER ME by Sophie Kinsella
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 was the first book I read of Sophie Kinsella's and it will certainly NOT be the last. I loved Lexi, she was relateable in so many ways. With her recent loss of memory she sets out to live a life she isn't sure she was meant to live, peeling away the secrets one onion layer at a time.
The twists and turns will leave you wondering what Lexi will do next and how one copes with memory loss until you're able to finally call some place home. It really makes you appreciate the things you have and how lucky you are to have your memory in tact and your secrets safely hidden in a box next to the shoes in your closet.
It's a perfect beach read for this nice summer weather!
