What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty

Alice is a 39-year-old mother of three going through a high-conflict divorce.

But then she takes a fall at the gym and wakes up knowing nothing about the last 10 years of her life. As her friends and family fill in bits and pieces for her, Alice discovers that maybe she doesn't like who she's become in the last ten years.

I want to say that this book was chic-lit, mystery, and beach read all combined, but it was actually deeper than the average chic-lit book. I thought it was pretty original, clever, thoughtful, and funny.

It's not short (just under 400 pages), but this was a page-turner. I couldn't put it down yesterday until I finished it, so that explains why dinner was ready at 8:30pm last night instead of the usual 6:30pm.
