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 highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to have a fun read.
Fountainheart
There is that funny moment where flirting is just what you naturally do, to what you really want to do, to what you can no longer do because you like someone too much.
Becky at "One Literature Nut"
Characters are very interesting and the story was cute and not completely predictable from the beginning.

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.

The story line itself is very lame, hard to engage with such a weak premise.

The really annoying thing though is that the whole book is full of foot notes which are very irritating to read in kindle form as you are constantly clicking forward and back. It is not always easy to click on the notes either, which caused me a lot of frustration and made my reading of this book disjointed.

Perhaps it would be easier to read in paperback format.

This is my first Sophie Kinsella novel. I know. Crazy, right? I mention this to point out that I don't know how similar this is to previous efforts -- what seems new and fun to me might be a retread.

This was really fun and lighthearted read and I kept turning the pages, finishing in a day. I'd mentioned to my husband early on that I was enjoying it, and then showed him my progress later on, and he laughed and then said "Wow, you weren't kidding about enjoying it."

Poppy was a quite likable character, for the most part. As the blurb indicates, she becomes in possession of a phone belonging to an ex-assistant for Sam. A large part of the plot involves Poppy taking it upon herself to answer emails on Sam's behalf. While some of this needed to happen for plot reasons, a great deal of it was genuinely annoying, and not as adorable as Ms. Kinsella might think. Even if someone thought they were heling, who'd sign people up for trips and marathons? (Even if the trips were to places you'd like to go and might assume other people would like to go there as well. I won't even go into the "Dad" subplot.

Speaking of genuinely annoying, Poppy likes footnotes. While some of the notes are cute, the gimmick wears out it's welcome. Well -- it reminded me of the episode of How I Met Your Mother where Ted and Marshall go on a road trip, and it turns on that a cassette is stuck in the player -- I Would Walk 500 Miles, by the Proclaimers. They're seen singing along with it, and then there is a passage of time where they look miserable. Marshall points that it comes around again, and next we see them blissfully singing along once nore. The footnotes are cute, and then annoying, and then cute again -- but not quite *as* cute, you know?

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.
