This cheeky rom com was a total page-turner. I’ve always enjoyed a good Sophie Kinsella; admittedly, some are better than others. (Sometimes her books are too syrupy for my taste, but I’ve Got Your Number hits all of the right notes.)
The main character – Poppy – is very real and very likable, though at times, you may want to reach through the pages of the book and shake her. Like any great romantic story, there is a tension-filled plot, and a really great back-and-forth dialogue, that keeps the story moving forward at a rapid pace.
I really liked this one!
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.
