About the book:
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.
I was super excited when I found out that Sophie Kinsella had another book coming out. I am a huge fan of hers and read all her books that she has written under Sophie Kinsella because they are a light and fun read. Did you know that she writes under the name of Madeleine Wickham as well?
I should start of by saying that this book is a stand alone and is no way associated with any of her other books.
I am known to pretty much devour Sophie’s books in almost one sitting. This was no exception. I started it fairly early in the morning and by mid afternoon I was finished it. I really enjoyed the story. The only thing that bothered me a little was the footnotes and I think had I read the actual book and not an egalley on my kobo it might have been fine. I have heard a few bloggers commenting on that same issue. So I was happy to find out that it wasn’t just on the egalleys.
The main character in I’ve Got Your Number is Poppy Wyatt. She is just like the girl next door someone you probably could be friends with. Things are going good for her until a fire alarm goes off and she looses her engagement ring. She is in a sheer panic because its a family heirloom. She has basically driven the staff at the hotel mad in her search for this ring that appears to be gone.
When she goes outside to take a call, her phone is snatch and Poppy is in a pure panic. Her life is in her phone. How many of us can say the same thing? Walking back into the hotel she spots a perfectly good phone in the trash can and its basically finders keepers. Its in the garbage so it must be fair game right?
Poppy is a girl with a mission and that is to get her ring back without her fiancee, Magnus or his family from finding out and she will do almost anything to make sure that happens even if it means claiming this phone as her own. She knows she can explain the new phone and new number and not the lost ring.
So thinking she is in the clear she realizes this phone belongs to not just anyone but a consulting firm. The phone actually belongs to a PA (personal assistant) Violet that works with Sam (the boss) and she has upped and quit. Hmm I wonder why?
Before long Poppy and Sam are thrust together and against his better judgement he allows Poppy to use the phone until she gets her ring back. What happens next is a funny adventure that can only happen in a book and I loved it.
I loved reading the interactions between Poppy and Sam and you could see that perhaps a little love interest was developing. Will it develop?
If you are looking for a light fun read then I have to suggest this one to you.
