Official Book Blurb:
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...
Loved, loved, loved it! Typical Sophie Kinsella! Brilliant writing, funny, loads of ups and downs and just brilliant! Just what I needed a good old favourite author book! Not much else to write really, other than it makes you think about the amount of time you have left in life. I am currently about to hit the big 40 this year, and I’m starting to feel my age, BUT I suppose in the grand scheme of things I’m not THAT old yet and might not even be halfway through my life yet. I certainly hope I have many many years left with my lovely husband as each couple of years you go through different cycles of natural change, and things don’t stay the same. You always think they will, but things always naturally progress and evolve.
