Lexi wakes up in a hospital bed after a car accident, thinking it's 2004 and she's a twenty-five-year old with crooked teeth and a disastrous love life.
But, to her disbelief, she learns it's actually 2007 - she's twenty-eight, her teeth are straight, she's the boss of her department - and she's married!
To a good-looking millionaire! How on earth did she land the dream life? She can't believe her luck - especially when she sees her stunning new home.
She's sure she'll have a fantastic marriage once she gets to know her husband again.
He's drawn up a 'manual of our marriage', which should help.
But as she learns more about her new self, chinks start to appear in the perfect life.
All her old colleagues hate her. A rival is after her job. Then a dishevelled, sexy guy turns up...and lands a new bombshell.
What the **** happened to her? Will she ever remember? And what will happen if she does? Everybody loves Sophie Kinsella: "I almost cried with laughter." (Daily Mail). "Hilarious ...you'll laugh and gasp on every page." (Jenny Colgan). "Properly mood-altering ...funny, fast and farcical.
I loved it." (Jojo Moyes). "A superb tale. Five stars!" (Heat).

not a strenuous read -- read in one evening after maggie went to bed :) but it was a nice distraction from busyness at work.
Review by faniP
I LOVED this book! I really didn't expect that, since the reviews are mostly mediocre to say the least.This is the story of Lexi who has an accident in an outing with her friends. She wakes up in a hospital to learn that in fact the accident she remembers happened 3 years ago and she is in fact there after a car accident that happened a couple of days before. So, she has totally forgotten the last 3 years of her life. And what a change these years were! She became director in her department, owns a Luis Vuitton bag, has a perfectly toned body and is married to a gorgeous millionaire! However, she soon learns that not everything in her new life is as perfect as it seems. Trying to remember what happened to her life during these years won't be so easy as she can't trust all those new people who claim to be her friends. I stayed up late to finish this book. Fast paced, funny but also emotional at certain points. The romance part was lovely and sweet and the hero wonderful. Along with Undomestic Goddess this is my favorite Kinsella book.
