Poppy has just lost her engagement ring after a champagne lunch and just when she thinks things cannot get any worse, someone steals her phone. Lucky for her she finds a working phone in a trash can, but is it lucky for the business man who owns the phone?
Madeleine Wickham is the author of this book written under the pen name of Sophie Kinsella. She has written numerous books under this name, both Shopaholic books and the other standalone novels centering on various characters. Please see my other Sophie Kinsella reviews at https://books-treasureortrash.com/?s=sophie+kinsella. All of these novels including I’ve Got Your Number are considered chick lit. Most of her books also fall under comedy as they are usually funny and amusing. The story is told in the first person narrative with the voice and thoughts of the main character, Poppy Wyatt, as we follow her through her life.
This is an amusing and fun read. Poppy is a likeable young women and her use of the “footnote” is quirky and fun to read. The overall style continues in typical Kinsella fashion as our heroine gets herself in and out of trouble and along the way she figures out her life. The story is a bit predictable but includes a few heartwrenching moments.
This is a standalone story with a few twists and a great ending. I recommend this book as a very good read and anyone who is a Sophie Kinsella or chick-lit fan should be sure to add this book onto their list.
