Summary
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - A witty and emotionally charged novel that delves into the heart of a marriage, and how those we love and think we know best can sometimes surprise us the most"A delightful take on the mixed blessings of marital longevity."-People After ten years together, Sylvie and Dan have a comfortable home, fulfilling jobs, and beautiful twin girls, and they 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 decide to bring surprises into their marriage to keep it fresh and fun. But in their pursuit of Project Surprise Me-from unexpected gifts to restaurant dates to sexy photo shoots-mishaps arise, with disastrous and comical results. Gradually, surprises turn to shocking truths. And when a scandal from the past is uncovered, they begin to wonder if they ever really knew each other at all. With a colorful cast of eccentric characters, razor-sharp observations, and her signature wit and charm, Sophie Kinsella presents a humorous yet moving portrait of a marriage-its intricacies, comforts, and complications. Surprise Me reveals that hidden layers in a close relationship are often yet to be discovered.Praise for Surprise Me"Genuinely funny."-The New York Times Book Review "Unexpected and wholly satisfying."-USA Today"In her signature fashion, Sophie Kinsella brings a cast of quirky, funny characters to this new work. [She] keeps the laughs coming. . . . Readers will follow the story with bated breath as the couple struggle to make their marriage right after everything they thought they knew about each other proves wrong."-Library Journal "Heartfelt . . . What at first seems like a light novel about familiar woes turns into a deeper story about trust, family, and perception."-Publishers Weekly "Winsome and zesty, Kinsella's latest delivers all the hallmarks her many fans have come to expect."-Booklist "Pure fun . . . a hilariously moving look at marriage and the power of mixing things up."-Kirkus Reviews
