This is my first ever book by Sophie Kinsella that i've picked up. And I wasn't sure what to think of it when I first started reading because the main character (Poppy) has a fiance, and she is getting to know another guy (Sam) after finding his PA's phone in t he trash. But, I have to say--without giving anything away, of course--that this books was very enjoyable. It was a little touch and go, especially as it neared the end, but everything worked out in the end, and I was very impressed. I will definitely be picking up and having a read of Sophie Kinsella's books!
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.
