Synopsis from Goodreads:
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.
This is such a cute book! I never thought I would like a book like this, it’s a romantic comedy book. Overall, I really enjoyed this book. I loved the crazy things Poppy does and also her character development. I didn’t expect much from a “chick lit” book like this but this exceeded everything I thought it would be.
Ridiculous: The situations Poppy get into (and put herself into) are just priceless. They could have turned horrible and be a real con to this book but Sophie Kinsella did a great job. The situations seemed unbelievable but extremely hilarious.
Protagonist: I. Loved. Poppy. I can see myself in Poppy. I think she is relate-able character. None of her actions seemed out of her character, I noticed with a lot of “chick lit” I have read, the protagonists are unrelate-able.
Magnus: I wish we saw more of Magnus and their relationship. There was only a few scenes with him. I kind of wanted to see Poppy and Magnus’ relationship before everything went down.
Protagonist: Even though I loved her ridiculousness, I kinda wanted to slap Poppy and tell her to get herself together. She is very impulsive and had a one track mind.
