Okay raise your hand if you loved shopaholic. Well if you are sitting there with your hand held up high then run to the nearest bookstore and gets this book. I think Kinsella outdid herself. It's fast paced, funny, endearing and almost addictive. Can a book be addictive - yes I believe it can.
This is an extraordinary story about a lost - no make that stolen cell phone and its replacement that was procured in of all places a trash bin. This phone was going to change many lives - in a very good way.
But I'm not going to tell you too much about the story of Poppy, Magnus and Sam along with an amazing cast of unforgettable characters. Poppy is at a loss without her cell phone and convinces herself that finding a tossed one is fair game. Her intentions are honorable - she just needs to use it for a hopefully short time while she keeps in touch with her friends and wedding planner, her fiancé Magnus and most importantly the hotel where she unfortunately misplaced her engagement ring. But when her newly acquired phone starts buzzing and beeping she answers. This rather innocent action takes on a life of its own as Poppy gets to know a lot about the previous owner, their boss Sam and his company. Poppy is pretty sure she has all the players straight having learned quite a bit about them all from an assortment of emails. Yes she admits to yielding to temptation and reading a few. But as her phone adventure continues without an end in sight she finds herself in the middle of a situation that not only invades her life, but is having an unexpected effect on her upcoming nuptials. Poppy is going to be very surprised by what she learns is the real story behind those emails. And getting to know Sam is an unexpected bonus.
I love reviewing books and every once in a while I get one that is just delicious from start to finish. Every detail has a purpose and the writing style is rather ingenious as you will see. I've Got Your Number will capture your heart guaranteed.
I’ve lost it. :( The only thing in the world I wasn’t supposed to lose. My engagement ring. It’s been in Magnus’s family for three generations. And now the very same day his parents are coming, I’ve lost it. The very same day! Do not hyperventilate, Poppy. Stay positive :) !!
Poppy Wyatt has never felt luckier. She is about to marry her ideal man, Magnus Tavish, but in one afternoon her “happily ever after” begins to fall apart. Not only has she lost her engagement ring in a hotel fire drill but in the panic that follows, her phone is stolen. As she paces shakily around the lobby, she spots an abandoned phone in a trash can. Finders keepers! Now she can leave a number for the hotel to contact her when they find her ring. Perfect!
Well, perfect except that the phone’s owner, businessman Sam Roxton, doesn’t agree. He wants his phone back and doesn’t appreciate Poppy reading his messages and wading into his personal life.
What ensues is a hilarious and unpredictable turn of events as Poppy and Sam increasingly upend each other’s lives through emails and text messages. As Poppy juggles wedding preparations, mysterious phone calls, and hiding her left hand from Magnus and his parents . . . she soon realizes that she is in for the biggest surprise of her life.
