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.

"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)
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.
Wouldn't be my first choice to recommend. I've read all of Sophie Kinsella's books and enjoyed them, but this is the first one I've listened to. I did NOT like the narrator which may be the reason I had trouble getting into the story. Her accent seemed sort of tacky and her voice was scratchy and irritating. I couldn't imagine the main character (with what I was to believe about her) with that voice.
The story overall was cute and after many twists and turns had a nice ending.
I liked the main characted Poppy a lot, but Sam was my favorite.
Put XOXO's on my emails????
I couldn't listen to more than the first chapter of this book because the narrators voice was so terrible. Very dissapointing
The story may have been interesting but I couldn't listen to past the first chapter.
Anyone with a voice that is more pleasing to the ear!
If you are interested in this book I recommend reading it yourself sooner than listening to it on audible.
Hi, well first of all, I love books, I have been reading since I could remember. Is something that I'm very passionate about. BOOKS FOREVER!
I think I fell for Poppy because she has so much perseverance. She did many crazy things to get what she wants.
I love how this audio book is packed with suspense, charm, and pure romance.
I love the way she creates this character in her head and it just comes out perfect when she narrates the story.
Yes, actually, right away when I started listening to it, I was hypnotized by the narrator and the characters.
Through out the whole audio book I was :D :D :D
