Publisher's Summary

Number-one best-selling author Sophie Kinsella's emotionally charged new stand-alone novel about marriage and family and how those we love and know best can sometimes surprise us the most.
After being together for 10 years, Sylvie and Dan have all the trimmings of a happy life and marriage; they have a comfortable home, fulfilling jobs, and beautiful twin girls and communicate so seamlessly, they finish each other's sentences. However, a trip to the doctor projects they will live another 68 years together, and panic sets in. They never expected "until death do us part" to mean seven decades.
In the name of marriage survival, they quickly concoct a plan to keep their relationship fresh and exciting: They will create little surprises for each other so that their (extended) years together will never become boring. But in their pursuit to execute Project Surprise Me, mishaps arise, and secrets are uncovered that start to threaten the very foundation of their unshakable bond. When a scandal from the past is revealed that questions some important untold truths, they begin to wonder if they ever really knew each other after all.
With a colorful, eccentric cast of characters, razor-sharp observations, and her signature wit and charm, Sophie Kinsella crafts a humorous yet thoughtful portrait of a marriage and shines a light on the danger of not looking past the many layers of the ones you love to discover how infinitely fascinating - and surprising - they truly are.

Critic Reviews

"Narrator Fiona Hardingham's rich British intonation complements the story of Sylvie and Dan.... She's equally skilled at the high-pitched voices of the couple's precocious daughters and deftly captures Sylvie's tech-fearing boss, who says the word 'selfie' as if it were foreign. The distraction in Dan's voice is evident and helps to build tension as the story reaches its climax." (AudioFile)

A different kind of Sophie Kinsella

This is different from Sophie Kinsella’s other books but in a good way! I love her other books but this one had a much deeper story and slightly older characters. It made you think...which I just love!

Sophie Kinsella never disappoints!

While some of Sophie Kinsella's books are more treasured than others, they are all - in my opinion - wonderful. The qualification, of course, is that the listener or reader must enjoy light, funny and fluffy stories. If you do, this is the book for you! There are parts that are laugh-out-loud . . . balanced by real, down-to-earth situations.

The only thing that got me to put the book aside was that I didn't want to finish it too quickly. I am so sad when one of her books is "over" because I know I'll have to wait a couple of years for another.
