"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. With a colorful, eccentric cast of characters, razor-sharp observations, and her signature wit and charm, Sophie Kinsella crafts a humorous, yet thoughtful portrait of a marriage and shines a light on the danger of not looking past the many layers of the ones you love to discover how infinitely fascinating--and surprising--they truly are"--… (mais)

Long a fan of Sophie Kinsella, I was thrilled to grab this NetGalley ARC, and Surprise me doesn't disappoint. As a stand-alone novel, this is departure from her singleton looking for someone books, but she has the same self-deprecating wit and humor and twists that I expect.

The premise was intriguing - though I confess, I couldn't quite understand husband Dan's reaction to the news that he and wife Sylvie were in good health and had many, many years left together - in fact, the doctor predicted another 68 years together. This apparently was not the good thing one would expect as Dan seemed rather shocked at the though (that's a long time with one person, apparently) - especially when you are already finishing each others sentences and your life together is altogether predictable, and you think you know everything about the other.

In the way that surprises rarely work out the way you expect, Sylvie and Dan's plans for each other are mostly awful, awkward and hilarious. The side characters are of strong personalities and add to the hilarity as, of course, misunderstandings happen, leading to a turn in the story that I wasn't expecting.

I did find Sylvie's worship of her dearly-departed daddy a bit much (and I wanted to give her a good shake) but overall, the book was a fun, light read and altogether enjoyable.

Sylvie en Dan zijn al tien jaar gelukkig getrouwd. Ze hebben een schattige tweeling, een mooi huis, en een prima baan. Dat kan zo nog wel 68 jaar doorgaan! Saai! De paniek slaat toe. Om hun huwelijk fris en scherp te houden, besluiten ze elkaar te verrassen. Met sexy photoshoots, dates en onverwachte uitjes. Maar alles gaat mis. De verrassingen brengen meer aan het licht dan wenselijk. Met hilarische gevolgen.
