Surprise Me

Sophie Kinsella

Book Description:

After ten years together, Sylvie and Dan have a comfortable home, fulfilling jobs, and beautiful twin girls, and they communicate so seamlessly they finish each other’s sentences. They have a happy marriage and believe they know everything there is to know about each other. Until it’s casually mentioned to them that they could be together for another sixty-eight years . . . and panic sets in. 
They decide to bring surprises into their marriage to keep it fresh and fun. But in their pursuit of Project Surprise Me—from unexpected gifts to restaurant dates to sexy photo shoots—mishaps arise, with disastrous and comical results. Gradually, surprises turn to shocking truths. And when a scandal from the past is uncovered, they begin to wonder if they ever really knew each other at all.
With a colorful cast of eccentric characters, razor-sharp observations, and her signature wit and charm, Sophie Kinsella presents a humorous yet moving portrait of a marriage—its intricacies, comforts, and complications. Surprise Me reveals that hidden layers in a close relationship are often yet to be discovered.

My 5-Star Review:

Sophie Kinsella is one of my favorite authors when it comes to a humorous look at life. She once again brings humor to a relationship in her latest novel, SURPRISE ME.

Stunned by the fact that she and her spouse might possibly be married for decades longer than anticipated, they come up with a plan to keep their relationship alive by surprising each other. But the surprises begin to backfire and cause trouble instead. It is a laugh-out-loud novel that is sure to lift your spirits. Highly recommended.

(I received an advance copy from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for my honest review.)
