Imagine waking up one day to find you have the "perfect" life--great job, ideal spouse, the right look and money to satisfy your every need and whim.

In "Remember Me?" Lexi Smart does just that--wakes up to the perfect life. Lexi wakes up in a hospital following a blow to the head and having amnesia. The last three years of her life are missing and she's gone from a frumpy girl with the nickname "Snaggletooth" to a high-powered corporate career woman with a complete make-over and a wealthy husband. It sounds a bit too good to be true...

And it turns out to be. In our climb to the top, Lexi alienated her closest friends and has become obsessed. She's become the corporate bitch in many ways and her perfect looking husband isn't quite the perfect guy he appears to be.

The story follows Lexi trying to put her life back together and figure out how she got there. The revelation of what drove her to become so ruthless is set up well in the early running and makes perfect sense within the context of the novel. Also, the story doesn't necessarily have Lexi find a perfect life for her beyond the perfect life she has on paper.

Told from the first-person perspective, "Remember Me?" is an intriguing commentary disguised as chick-lit fluff.
