From Kinsella (Shopaholic & Baby, 2007, etc.), a rags-to-riches fable with a twist.
Self-proclaimed “sucker” Lexi Smart has a thankless job and a boyfriend known as “Loser Dave.” When the book opens, our plucky-in-spite-of-it-all heroine is wrapping up a night out with gal pals in London. Struggling to find a taxi in the rain to take her home, Lexi slips on the slick pavement and…wakes up with retrograde amnesia three years later. Seems Lexi has been busy in recent years—too bad she remembers none of it. When she opens her eyes, she’s in a first-class hospital room, the victim, doctors say, of a car wreck in her Mercedes. No longer a working-class drone, Lexi now has a Louis Vuitton handbag, and her previously humdrum body is toned and tanned. As she switches into freak-out mode, her sister notifies Lexi that she is also married—to a square-jawed, hunky millionaire. Talk about getting lucky! Hilarity ensues as Lexi attempts to reclaim her past and negotiate her dazzling present, while contemplating an even more wondrous romance with a black-jeans-clad architect. That Lexi discovers that her transformation from worker to boss turned her from good buddy to bitch adds a bit of morality-tale vinegar to this sugar-shock tale.
