I’ve Got Your Number is the fifth stand-alone novel by British author, Sophie Kinsella. Poppy Wyatt is in a panic. She has lost the heirloom emerald ring that Magnus Tavish gave her when he proposed. His intimidatingly intellectual parents are due back from Europe, and this will just be proof she’s not worthy of their son. And just when she needs it most, just when someone might need to ring her with news about the ring, some @$ steals her mobile phone!
Is it some sort of providence that she spots a mobile phone discarded in a litter bin? Well, guess what! It’s hers now. Although Sam Roxton, a high flier with the White Globe Consulting Group, whose PA threw the company phone in the bin, doesn’t agree. Very reluctantly, he lets Poppy borrow the phone, and with it, access to everything about his life.
Kinsella’s forte is romantic comedy, and she excels herself with this one. There are plenty of laugh-out-loud moments, but there’s also a bit of intrigue, more than a few words of wisdom and the occasional lump-in-the-throat line. And it boasts a hilariously funny wedding scene. Very entertaining.
