27 year old Poppy Ross has the perfect life and the perfect marriage. She has her dream job as an image consultant, and a dream husband, Parker. Things are going perfectly until she discovers that Parker is having an affair with a sexy co-worker. Before she can confront him, however, he gets struck by lightning and loses his short term memory, including his memory of the entire affair. Poppy sees this as an opportunity to save her marriage and reinvent herself as the sexy, sultry woman she believes Parker wants.
I really enjoyed this book and thought it was the perfect chick lit novel. It had a really unique premise. I mean, how many times have you heard of a man getting struck by lightning and forgetting his affair? That’s what I liked about this book – fresh, fun ideas.
I also really liked Poppy. Her reaction was so different than expected which makes for a good story. I would think most women would lose it or go off on their husband in this event… at least I would! At first, she is panicked and not sure what to do, but then she makes her decision and goes full force… and it is funny! She has a kick ass job too! She’s an image consultant and helps people with their wardrobes and appearance. Cool! What a unique heroine! It’s also interesting to see her transformation(s), in an honest story about being true to oneself.
I’d wholeheartedly recommend this funny, sweet, and fast read to all fans of chick lit.
My Rating: 4/5
