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.

“[Kinsella] continues to tickle funny bones and touch hearts.” (USA Today, on Twenties Girl)
"Hilarious... a breezy blend of romantic comedy and cautionary fairy tale.” (New York Post, on Remember Me?)
“A fast, fun read that delves a little deeper.” (The Plain Dealer, on The Undomestic Goddess)
I enjoy Kinsella's books, but I think she was trying a little too hard to be funny (at least in the beginning). After a few hours I started to enjoy the book, and it's a nice listen.
I love the story line. It was fun and kept you interested.
I like how it was a book that you could get involved in. You wanted the main characters to succeed and you kinda knew what was going to happen and yet, there were lots of twists and turns to keep you on your toes.
No. She has a wonderful voice and does a good job with the voices of each of the characters.
I laughed a lot. I also found myself in my car yelling at the speakers: DON'T DO THAT!!!! And then seeing all the other drivers looking at me like I was crazy hahaha
Loved this book. It was a good listen and I definitely recommend it.
This book was so much fun. I found myself laughing out loud many times. Honestly I did not want to stop listening when I had other things to do. I keep looking for something similar to this book, but still cannot find anything comparable.
First one I've had so it's hard to compare, but this one was very good.
Didn't read the printed version
Yes it is fun. No it is not a complex or particularly deep but it has it's clever moments and is just enjoyable.
I enjoyed the story line, but it was just okay, There was nothing great about it. What made it was the narrator. She was quirky and funny. She just made the story come alive. I am glad that listened, rather than read this book.
It was not surprising at all.
I have never listened to one of her performaces.
I adored Can you keep a secret, wasn;t too hot about the Shopaholic series, but this is as good as and fun as Can you keep a secret, so give it a go!
Simple, easy to follow and funny
Sam Roxton was my favorite character. I like thinking people of few words.
This is my first and she was great.
The moment that Poppy accepted that Magnus was cheating on her. For one moment she revealed she really was not a ditz
The Shopaholic Books were the best. Hysterical in Places. This was a contrived story of a lost cell phone, a lost ring, (Oh My) the same ending as all Shopaholic Books but with different names. It was a waste of money!
It took me a while before I got into the story.
Too typical and predictable.
Easy listen. By that I mean it's not too thought provoking.
