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)
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
The reader Jayne Entwistle is great.
This is so much fun as an audiobook. The British accent of Jayne Entwistle
makes the story perfect.
.This my first Sophie Kinsel book and now I definetly will listen to more of her books.
I listen to my audio books while housecleaning. This was so good that I had to keep listening to the story after my chores were finished, something I never do.
I had to know what would happen next.
I highly recommed this to romance/humor Chick-Lit fans.
It is an unusual premise and fun to watch it unfold. The concept of getting to know someone by observing how they respond to emails is so
I really enjoyed Poppy Wyatt.
This is light, fun, and entertaining.
Great fun listen
I thought it was entertainting
I liked them all
I thought it was an easy-fun story and really enjoyed the Jayne Entwistle's preformance
This is a terrific novel for summertime enjoyment!
The two plot lines running simultaneously mesh together in the end just right. The narrator captures Poppy perfectly and made me wish that another would be written to follow her further exploits. I think I have known her in another life - I actually found myself yelling at her, "Dump the bum!"
This was funny, it engaged you through the story lines. You want to know what is going to happen next, Footnote: love to accent, and speed of the novel.
