Book Blurb: 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: This is the most fun, funny awesome, make you smile and laugh and cry book you'll read this year. I've always wanted to read Sophie Kinsella. I have many of her books on my TBR pile, but I snagged this one from Net Galley and I started reading it.

I couldn't stop reading it.

It was absolutely hysterical. Poppy Wyatt is just fab. She's having a bad time of it. She loses the family heirloom engagement ring and then her phone. After that things get crazy and really funny. Enter Sam Roxton, the guy who's PA ditched her phone in the trash. That phone found its way into Poppy's hands and it becomes her phone for the next few days, making her Sam's kinda sorta PA.

The stuff that happens after that? Well, I'd tell you, but it would spoil the story.

Oh and then there's Magnus, her soon to be husband and his parents Wanda and Anthony. Quite a family. The whole family isn't what it seems. Wanda and Anthony aren't as pretentious...and Mag isn't the best hubby material. But you'll understand when you read the book. AND YOU WILL READ THE BOOK!!!

The ending is kind of a surprise, but not. You know one guy is going to lose out..and well..I liked how Sophie ended it. Not a lot a drama, just a few giggles.

The only gripe I had with the book were the footnotes that she added because Poppy liked footnotes.

File this under guilty pleasures. This was a totally fun read!

Rating: 5 flowers
