Surprise Me is Sophie Kinsella's emotionally charged, witty new standalone novel about love and long-term relationship survival - and how those we think we know best can sometimes surprise us the most . . .

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...

Well Surprise Me certainly did that, what a surprising way to end the book. 

In fact all the surprises were a lot of fun. as a couple when discovering they have a very long life expectancy, realise that their marriage vows may mean even long together than anticipated. 

As you would expect from a Sophie Kinsella book this is filled with laughs, good times and a general fun factor.  

I especially loved Sylvie's work place and her boss and trying to bring the place into the 21st Century!

Another really enjoyable and quick to read book from one of my favourite authors.
