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.
Poppy loses her engagement ring, a family heirloom from her fiancée Magnus and is going a little crazy trying to find out where it is. Not only is her ring lost, her phone gets stolen right from her hands. Talk about bad luck! So when she spots a phone in a garbage bin, she takes it as her own not knowing that it catapulates her into a quirky yet special relationship with Sam, a business man.
I’m such a huge fan of Sophie Kinsella, so when Random House of Canada sent over their monthly email, I knew I had to request it! They also asked me to be part of the blog tour and I got to interview Sophie herself! Check it out here.
Sophie’s writing always catches my heart because of the cute story lines, characters and adorable dialogue. This is chick lit at its finest and Sophie is queen. There’s just enough plot to keep the pages turning and enough twists and turns to say, “How the heck did I miss that?” Sophie is a genius when she writes her main characters. Poppy is just as funny, good-natured and hysterical as Becky from the Shopaholic series. Combined with the main character, the secondary characters only add support and even more laughs. Not to mention the leading man Sam, who is as swoon worthy as any romantic hero.
Sophie has another hit on her hands and I can’t wait to read more from her!
