Book Review: I've Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella

Title: I've Got Your Number

Author: Sophie Kinsella

Genre: Chick lit, Romance, Humor

Description: Poppy Wyatt has never felt luckier.  She is about to marry the ideal man, Magnus Tavish, but in one afternoon her 'happy ever after' begins to fall apart.  Not only has she lost her engagement ring but in the panic that followed, she has now lost her phone. As she paces shakily round the hotel foyer she spots an abandoned phone in a bin. Finders keepers!  Now she can leave a number for the hotel to contact her when they find her ring. Perfect!
Well, perfect except the phone's owner, businessman Sam Roxton doesn't agree.  He wants his phone back and doesn't appreciate Poppy reading all 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: Sam is having a really bad day when she loses her engagement ring, which is a family heirloom, but on top of that her phone gets stolen. Luckily she happens to find a new one right in a trashcan and after helping the owner of the phone, they make a deal so she gets to keep it. But Sam, the owner of said phone, might regret that decision. Before he knows it Poppy is medling in his professional and even personal life, throwing everything upside down. Poppy believes she is just helping him to learn proper messaging etiquette.
Meanwhile she is still looking for her ring and planning a wedding with her fiancé Magnus. Trying to hide she lost his ring to him and his family ends up with some hilarious reindeer mittens, gauze complications and even calling in the help of her new-found friend Sam. Too bad it all doesn't matter, 'cause nothing she does will make her welcome to Magnus family of geniuses. Feeling dumber by the minute in their presence, she can't wait for the wedding to be over.
Poppy gets more and more involved in Sam's life. Before she knows it they are not just talking through the phone, but meeting in person and what a pleasant surprise that is. Of course at some point it all has to go wrong and Poppy has to make some tough decisions, but luckily she has her text buddy to help her.
I'm a big fan of Sophie Kinsella's stand alone novels (Shopaholic somehow doesn't do it for me) and with her latest book "I've Got Your Number" she doesn't disappoint. Like always it's fast paced and keeps you on the edge of the seat. Strange situations you could have never imagined, but she makes it believable. Mixing some typical British humor in there and I'm completely sold. Sophie has got you rooting for Poppy and wishing for more. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone! Even though I just finished reading the book, I have to hold myself back to not start from the top again. What can I say, I am a book addict :)
