Book: I’ve got your number
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.
My Thoughts on “I’ve got your number”
I remember picking this book because it just felt like it would be something really light and Poppy (the MC) seemed like she would be a funny character. I’ve only read two Sophia Kinsella books – one of them being the famous “confessions of a shopaholic” and she has a knack for writing charming, quirky and somewhat relatable women.
If you’re looking for life-impacting literature, this is not the book for you. But if you want a feel-good, grumpy/sunshine trope to curl up with, then this is perfect. I loved the characters and I’d say it was worth the couple of evenings I spent reading.
