Na een aantal maanden van memory’s knippen, spelborden maken, therapieverslagen schrijven, etc., ben ik eindelijk aan mijn stapel boeken gekomen. Het is ondertussen al lente en dat betekent … een Spring Reading List. Terwijl mijn Winter Reading List nog lang niet uitgelezen is, laat staan mijn Fall Reading List, heb ik toch al een paar nieuwe verhalen op het oog. Wat denken jullie van deze?
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?
