Until it's casually mentioned to them that they could be together for another sixty-eight years... and panic sets in.
They quickly decide to create little surprises for each other, to keep their relationship fresh and fun. But in their pursuit of Project Surprise Me - anything from unexpected gifts to restaurant dates to photo shoots - mishaps arise with disastrous and comical results.
Gradually, the surprises turn to shocking discoveries. And when a scandal from the past is uncovered, they begin to wonder if they ever really knew each other after all...

I give it - 4/5
My review - What another wonderful fabulous book from Sophie. I adore her books and this has to be one of my favourites she has written. There is something about her writing that just keeps me hooked and the plot was really intriguing and I really liked all the characters. They all had depth, flaws, drama, love and just so much more.
How do you keep your relationship going? Sylvie and Dan have been told they will live for a long time. They have been together for years so, they decide to surprise each other to try and keep their marriage alive. Some of these surprises where just so fun and wonderful. At times, it had me laughing so much.
I adore Sylvie. She was so relatable, down to earth, quirky and I just really enjoyed reading about her and Dan.
There are some other surprises in this book that really changes some things but, that is what this book is about.
It is full of surprises. Some are wonderful and some may not be the best. It is not just about trying to keep a relationship alive. It really goes into the relationships between partners, families, and so much more. It has it's cute moments but, it also has some more serious moments and that is what I loved about this book. It shows the ups, downs, imperfections of their life, how they have so much more to learn about each other and it was a very enjoyable read.
