Synopsis

"Utterly charming . . . Put Sophie Kinsella's Number on speed dial."—USA Today
 
Poppy Wyatt has never felt luckier. She is about to marry her ideal man, Magnus Tavish, but in one afternoon her "happily ever after" begins to fall apart. Not only has she lost her engagement ring in a hotel fire drill, but in the panic that follows, her phone is stolen. As she paces shakily around the lobby, she spots an abandoned phone in a trash can. Finders keepers! Now she can leave a number for the hotel to contact her when they find her ring. Perfect!
 
Well, perfect except that the phone's owner, businessman Sam Roxton, doesn't agree. He wants his phone back and doesn't appreciate Poppy reading his messages and wading into his personal life.
 
What ensues is a hilarious and unpredictable turn of events as Poppy and Sam increasingly upend each other's lives through emails and text messages. As Poppy juggles wedding preparations, mysterious phone calls, and hiding her left hand from Magnus and his parents, she soon realizes that she is in for the biggest surprise of her life.
 
"A rollicking page-turner . . . It's funny. It's clever. It twists and turns. . . . Sophie Kinsella has yet another winner."—Fort Worth Star-Telegram
 
"Fresh, fast-paced, and fiercely funny . . . Kinsella pens her most lovably neurotic protagonist yet. . . . A laugh-out-loud comic caper."—Publishers Weekly
 
"Poppy is easily as charming and daffy as shopaholic Rebecca Bloomwood."—Kirkus Reviews
 
"A screwball romance for the digital age."—The Star-Ledger

BookLender review by PATRICIA on 2013-10-07 11:32:47

Poppy is definitely daffy, but I dont see any charm in her or any of the other charactersNobody in this story is at all likable to me. Maybe its because Im the only person left in the country who doesnt understand the appeal of cell phone addiction. Granted, its believable, since I see it all around me, but I still dont understand it.

BookLender review by Carolyn on 2013-07-15 14:33:26

This is the best book I have read all summer 2013 and I have read some good ones including a few Regency romances I rented through booksfree.com. This is also one of the best book I have read all year. I am very picky about romance and chick lit and find most of them stereotypical and silly and not much worth the time it took to read them. The reason I loved this book is because it was so hilarious and I love the characters. Poppy Wyatt is so real and I could really identify with her situation with both Sam and her fiance Magnus. The jewelry store scene was so freakin. funny I still laugh about it! The scrabble game, Willow.... I could go on and on! i didnt want it to end. I really liked the Shopaholic series but this stand alone is absolutely the best and on a whole new level. Dare i say it has footnotes? Dont worry they are a great part of the books charm. It celebrates love and romance in the modern age of cell phones and testing communication.If you like this genre you MUST read this book!
