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 loved Poppy's character! She's simple, not very complex, but very lovable. You can imagine her as being one of your girlfriends sitting with you in a very nice tapas bar during girl's night out!
It was very romantic and challenging. It wasn't just a straight love story, it also had a bit of fun mystery added to the story line. I think listening to this book made a huge difference with the text context.
Jayne is engaging.
Possession is 9/10ths of the law.
A real disappointment after the Shopaholic series. Thoroughly enjoyed every one of those but had to struggle through this one. Didn't really like a single one of the characters.
What a fun listen! It was sweet, surprising and laugh-out-loud funny. The narrator does an excellent job capturing Poppy Wyatt. This audiobook kept me company on a long car trip, and I didn't want to arrive at my destination so I could keep listening.
Besides having a very good story, the narration brought the story alive, and I listened with a lot of chuckling and guffawing. Loved the accents and the humor behind the story.
It was very entertaining car reading. It helped a lot to resist an urgent wish to stay in bed and don't go to work.
I prefer books to be alternatingly silly, depressing and weird, much like myself! Favorite authors: Douglas Coupland, Meg Cabot, Neil Gaiman
I found this narrator to be terrible! I'm surprised the book got as many high ratings as it has. I kept making my friends listen to it to figure out why her accent sounded so fake. I decided she must be Australian faking British, turned I was wrong, the accent is real, which is even more upsetting!
The story is cute though. I actually finished the book because I wanted to know what happened. Save yourself some frustration and read it the old fashioned way.
The book was just ok; humorus at times, but the same story could have been told a whole lot quicker with the same effect.
I'm not sure.
Accent was too heavy.
This was super funny as an audiobook. I laughed throughout. Loved the performance. I was not familiar with the author before this book.
I love reading and audible is the easiest way to keep up with my voracious appetite for the written word.
I am listening to the end of this book while I write this review because I was so excited that I couldn't wait. I absolutely love Sophie Kinsella and this book does not disappoint. Poppy and Sam are absolutely dreamy and I can't wait to hear more about them. Sophie has a flair for funny, lovable, endearing characters and these are no exception. Read it, listen to it, just get it.
