Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Kinsella, author of the popular Shopaholic series, offers a charming stand-alone tale about how modern technology changes lives. Poppy Wyatt is beside herself when she loses her engagement ring and her cell phone in quick succession. When she finds a cell phone in a trash can at the hotel where she lost the ring, she seizes it, giving out the number so that people can contact her if they find the ring. It proves to be a company phone that belonged to the now former assistant of businessman Sam Roxton, who is none too pleased that Poppy has claimed it as her own. He reluctantly agrees to let her keep it until the ring is found as long as Poppy is willing to send him any business e-mails that come to the phone. It’s not long before Poppy decides to answer several e-mails she thinks Sam is neglecting, while Sam points out a few issues in Poppy’s seemingly perfect engagement. Readers will know that Poppy and Sam are destined to be together, but getting there is a delightful and exciting ride. One of Kinsella’s best. --Kristine Huntley

I loved the story line and characters.
Cindy Manfra
Honestly, I felt like I was reading other best-selling authors where you can tell the story from the first page because that's how all of his/her books end up.
R. Patton
I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to have a fun read.

This book is definitely a fun read -hence the 5 stars - but that is not what this review is about. The humor in the narrative is found in the footnotes which have to appear at the foot of the page to which the footnote refers or the point is lost. The kindle edition has all of the footnotes at the end of each chapter where their impact is completely lost. In fact, if I have any criticism of kindle it is that you cannot easily leaf forward or backward while reading a book. Unfortunately for me, I do both very often and find that I have to be judicious about the form in which I purchase a book. I clearly made a mistake buying this book in kindle form.

There's a bag of Mallomars in your kitchen. Surely nobody will mind if you eat one cookie? Well, maybe two. Okay, another one won't hurt. And somehow... hey, how'd this bag get empty?

Not that this has ever happened to me.

Sophie Kinsella's latest novel makes me think of tasty cookies that are secretly satisfying even if nobody can claim this is "good for you." It's a light, funny, romance novel, nothing more -- but then WHO THE HECK SAYS YOU HAVE TO HAVE MORE? Enough with the serious stuff, already. I sat up until midnight reading this book, and you probably will too.

Our heroine, Poppy, begins with a crisis: She's lost her engagement ring. In the frantic search for the lost emerald ring, someone swipes Poppy's cell phone, so she *oh no oh no* cannot text anybody or call anyone. She discovers instead that someone threw a cell phone in the trash... and finders keepers, right? This is the setup for a fun romp that I am tempted to call "zany" (but in a nice way), involving the characters of her in-laws-to-be (who are so scary-smart that she is intimidated), her work-friends, and especially the stranger to whom the phone originally belonged. If you live the cell-phone texting lifestyle (or know someone who does) this will be even more entertaining.

Underneath the welcome silliness are characters who are actively *nice people*, too. I won't spoil any of the details for you, just say that Kinsella makes the implausible utterly believable and smile-worthy if not laugh-out-loud funny.

If you're ready for a box of cookies (but with fewer calories) and a welcome escapist story that'll make you smile, grab this one.

Having read most of Sophie Kinsella's books with enjoyment, I was excited to give "I've Got Your Number" a try. Unfortunately it just didn't hold my interest.

I became rather annoyed by Poppy- she's supposed to be a likable, quirky heroine, but she comes off as a whiny, impulsive, and lets her fiance treat her like a child. I'm sure Kinsella eventually redeems her, but I just never got invested enough to want to find out how.

The concept was a bit annoying and far-fetched, even for this type of book. Poppy loses her engagement ring at a hotel, then has her phone stolen. She needs to be reachable, so she takes a phone she found in the trash and gives that number to the hotel. The story rides on the premise that Poppy can't change give the phone back to the [turns out handsome] stranger because she the hotel has that number. If she changed her number with the front desk once already, why can't she get her own phone and change it again?! Give the poor guy his phone back! Or call your service provider and have them transfer your number to a new phone! If this woman is as addicted to her phone as she claims to be, I find it hard to believe those thoughts never crossed her mind.

I really wanted to like this, but I don't feel like this book is worth forcing myself to finish.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Poppy Wyatt is your average over the moon engaged woman- until she loses her fiancés family heirloom engagement ring. But there's no need to panic- everyone she can find who works at the hotel restaurant where she lost it has her cell number. Someone will call and all will be right in the world.

Until her cell Phone is stolen that is. Then the world crashes down. This isn't just any ring. It's a family heirloom of the Tavish clan- a group of people so intellectual that Poppy can barely understand them, much less keep up with them. And she just knows that losing the ring would be the last straw against her.

But luck is with Poppy who happens to find a phone in a trash bin. And if it's in the bin its common property right? So she can take it and give out its number to everyone and when they find the ring they will call.

The man who owns the phone does not agree. It turns it was the phone of the personal assistant of Sam Roxton (who recently left his employ, hence the phone chucking), a high powered businessman who needs the phone back so his new PA can organize his business life. Poppy also desperately needs it in case someone finds her ring.

They strike a deal. Poppy can keep the phone for a few days if she forwards all emails and messages to Sam. Soon Poppy is snooping through the emails meant for Sam (who could help themselves, right?) and the two build a relationship through texting. It's a strange thing- an odd connection but soon these two people are helping each other in more ways than one. As Poppy's wedding day grows closer and Sam's business flounders it may be this weirdest of all things that keeps both their heads above the water line.
