Hardcover432 pages
Expected publication: February 13th 2018 by Dial Press
ISBN:  0399592881

After being together for ten years, Sylvie and Dan have all the trimmings of a happy life and marriage; they have a comfortable home, fulfilling jobs, 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 question some important untold truths, they begin to wonder if they ever really knew each other after all.

As a lover of Sophie Kinsella's previous books, I was super excited to get my hands on this book. Surprise Me was a hilarious, romantic, and charming novel! This book was the perfect book to put me in the Valentine's Day mood!

The book started off a little slow, but after a few chapters, the pace really started to pick up! I loved all of the twists and turns that were weaved throughout the story. There were so many hilarious and ridiculous scenarios that made this book feel like the perfect romantic comedy! Sophie Kinsella was perfect at transitioning from funny and lighthearted moments to serious and heartbreaking moments. 

It is kind of random, but I LOVED how British this book was. I find books with very British characters extremely charming. Sophie Kinsella nailed that British charm perfectly. 

There were so many wonderful characters with eccentric and lovable personalities. I loved that the side characters were just as important as the main characters! I enjoyed the different relationships all the characters had and how they developed throughout the novel. 

Overall, this was such a fun and romantic novel! I would recommend this to anyone who is craving a romantic comedy!
