I've got your number

by Sophie Kinsella (Random House) R195.00 ISBN 978-0-593-05982-1


Poppy’s life changes when she loses her engagement ring at a function. It has been in Magnus’s family for three generations. It is also the very same day that his parents are coming.


There’s worse to come when she loses her cell phone too. As she paces around the hotel foyer she spots an abandoned phone in a bin. Finders keepers, she thinks. Now she can leave a number with the hotel staff. 


Except the owner of the phone, businessman, Sam Roxton doesn’t agree. He wants his phone back. He doesn’t appreciate Poppy’s reading all his messages and wading into his personal life.


As Poppy juggles wedding preparations, phone messages and hiding her left hand from Magnus and his parents, things do get more tangled. 


You can imagine how hilarious the story becomes. The outcome is a big surprise. This is a very easy book to read and written with much wit and sending up of characters. I enjoyed it.
