Product Details (as per amazon page)

After being together for ten years, Sylvie and Dan have a comfortable home, fulfilling jobs, beautiful twin girls, and 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 quickly decide to create little surprises for each other, to keep their relationship fresh and fun. But in their pursuit of Project Surprise Me – anything from unexpected gifts to restaurant dates to photo shoots – mishaps arise with disastrous and comical results.

Gradually, the surprises turn to shocking discoveries. And when a scandal from the past is uncovered, they begin to wonder if they ever really knew each other after all…

I voluntarily reviewed an arc of  this book.  All opinions are my own and no content may be copied.  However, authors and publishers may use elements of my reviews for quotes.

Sophie Kinsella is one of the top bestselling women’s fiction authors around at the moment.  You can always guarantee a read to bring out many emotions in you and Surprise Me didn’t disappoint.

Dan and Sylvie are happily married with their five year old twin daughters.  When their Dr gives them a clean bill of health during their routine insurance renewal he also gives them another diagnosis which alarms Dan and Sylvie slightly and makes them re-evaluate their marriage.  A mutual agreement is made and Project Surprise Me is born!  However, not all surprises are suitable, appropriate, some are quite unorthodox.  With both Dan and Sylvie competing to think up the best surprise for their respective spouse the project soon starts to get out of control.

Whilst project surprise me is in full swing Sylvie’s job is at risk.  Sylvie works at a stately home in London that is open to the public.  Sylvie and her colleagues soon realise they have to bring the administration of the stately home to the 21st century and funds need to be found swiftly to keep the house open.

When Dan becomes very distant Sylvie’s imagination runs wild and she is very concerned for the future.

This was a lovely story about love, life and relationships.  A story that is full of fun and is highly entertaining.  However, when the storyline takes some twists and turns and the surprises leave Sylvie with a dread, a dread that makes you question your past and a dread that makes you question the person you trusted and respected the most.  Life takes on a new direction for Sylvie, one that she can’t turn back on and one that fills her with renewed vigour.

Entertaining, enthralling and Sophie Kinsella certainly surprises you!
