I’ve always loved Sophie Kinsella’s books. Especially her shopoholic series, so when Smita mentioned that Kinsella’s latest was out, I had to read it. Luckily for me, it reached my hands rather quickly too!
Poppy Wyatt, engaged to the perfect man, Magnus Tavish, has everything she wants, until she goes and loses the one thing she is absolutely not supposed to lose – her engagement ring. The precious family heirloom that Magnus had given her as the engagement ring.
It doesn’t help that Magnus’ whole family is full of intellectuals who discuss Greek Philosophy at the dinner table. She already feels that she is considered inferior, not good enough to marry their intellectual son. After all she is just a physiotherapist, with not even a paper in her name. Now having lost their precious ring, she is about to confirm for them, all their worst suspicions about her.
Just when she is trying to locate her ring, she manages to get mugged and loses her phone – her precious phone with all her contacts. Can anything be worse?
Things seem quite bleak until she finds an abandoned phone in the bin. Finders keepers she deems, although the phone’s owner, Sam Roxton, doesn’t quite think so. She is days away from her wedding, juggling between her messages, Sam’s messages, and trying everything to get her ring back, often muddling up things for other people.
So does Poppy get her ring back, does Sam get his phone back? You’ll have to read it to find out, but I can guarantee that you will have a wonderful time reading it! You’ll find yourself chuckling away, laughing out loud(scaring your child, sometimes), and wishing that the book never ends! It is totally unputdownable.
A delightful, fun read, a book that does not disappoint, leaves us wanting for more!
