When 28-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 25-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?

I listened to the entire first download before I realized it was a waste of my time. There was nothing to make you like this character and want more. Very disappointed.
I enjoyed this book but it was a bit inconsistent for me. At times I didn't want to turn it off and others I couldn't wait for it to move on.. But overall was good entertainment.
The narrator does a wonderful job, but the book is a bit repetitive for me. It has a nice romance story in it and a bit of mystery to it too. Im not sure I would recommend it to anyone, but I enjoyed it during my long drives to and from work.
I am a fan of Sophie Kinsella's books, but I found this book a little too unbelievable. Some of the situations this character finds herself in, and how she comes to some conclusions are a little far-fetched. I found myself frowning in some parts instead of laughing. It was a fun book, but not as enjoyable as her previous books.
I have been a fan of Kinsella's since, "Can you Keep a Secret?", but this storyline was just too slow moving and predictable for me. I kept waiting and waiting for something interesting and funny to happen but am disappointed to say nothing ever did. Aside from a few funny parts and the narrator's English accent, the book was a waste of my time. I hate to admit, but I couldn't wait for the end to occur so I could move on to my next audio book. The aforementioned book by Kinsella is absolutely worth listening to though.
