Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

I’ve lost it. :( The only thing in the world I wasn’t supposed to lose. My engagement ring. It’s been in Magnus’s family for three generations. And now the very same day his parents are coming, I’ve lost it. The very same day! Do not hyperventilate, Poppy. Stay positive :) !!

 

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.

Review:

"In her newest (after The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic), Kinsella pens her most lovably neurotic protagonist yet, throws her into a thoroughly modern romantic love triangle, and creates a laugh-out-loud comic caper. Physical therapist Poppy Wyatt is engaged to Magnus Tavish, a pseudo-celebrity academic and author of a book on cultural symbolism. A week before they're to be married, Poppy loses her emerald engagement ring — a Tavish family heirloom. In a hard-to-believe twist of fate, she ends up finding a stranger's cell phone in a garbage bin, which belonged to the former personal assistant of a handsome executive, who agrees to let her hold onto the mobile (whose number she's already given to everyone who might have information on the ring) until she gets her jewelry back, as long as she forwards any and all important messages his way. As Poppy continues her frantic quest to plan her wedding and impress her fiancé and his equally erudite parents, her life begins to intertwine with the mysterious exec in a way she never thought possible. Fresh, fast-paced, and fiercely funny, Kinsella proves once again that in chick-lit, it's less about the predictably feel-good dénouement, and more about the rollicking good ride it takes to get there.

Another winner from Sophie Kinsella! Her books are filled with hilarious scenes! It left me saying, "I wish this happened to me!" Fast paced with lots of action and romance, this book ROCKS! This is the BEST BOOK I have read in 2012! Don't read this in public unless you want people to stare at you for laughing so loud!

Starting with the clever title, this book is one riot act! It is a well written, hilarious book which kept me in stitches. The plot weaves around Poppy, Magnus, and Sam and an all-important phone that Sam and Poppy share.

Some elements of Drama and Technology weave their way into the story and makes for a very interesting read.
