Publisher's Summary

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.

Cute!

As with all Sophie Kinsella books, you kind of have to suspend reality and accept ridiculousness, but I thought this book was really cute and sweet.

I like the "love story for the digital age" aspect of it and thought the main character, Poppy, had some funny moments. The constant texting really established their relationship and affirmed why they would ever get together. I also liked that it was mostly a PG story. I don't mind a little smut in my chick-lit, but it wasn't necessary in this one.

Typical of a Kinsella character, there are times when you are asking yourself why Poppy does what she does or jumps to conclusions, but it was generally a fun ride. The narrator was pretty great too.

Not my style

What did you like best about I've Got Your Number? What did you like least?

I bought this book on a whim having heard that the author was good, but this book was not for me. The narrator had a heavy british accent and it was a slow listen. I have pushed it to the back burner for a time when I am between good books!

Has I've Got Your Number turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, I read widely and will continue to read and listen to books of many genres.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator's accent wasn't what I am use to.

Could you see I've Got Your Number being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

I have yet to finish the book so I am not sure, but I don't see why not, I just wouldn't be a viewer.

read this to feel good and laugh

The usual Sophie Kinsella cheerful chick lit which I have come to love. I make no apologies to the highbrows arching at the mere thought of a lite book. But this book is laugh out loud funny. It’s entertaining. I enjoy Kinsella’s ability to paint ditzy yet spunky and surprisingly intelligent women who have messy lives but somehow charm a dream boy. It’s highbrow Barbara Cartland and I highly recommend!

Didn't think much of it at first...

Would you try another book from Sophie Kinsella and/or Jayne Entwistle?

yes I would

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

yep

Any additional comments?

I thought the story was so not interesting or catching at first; but as I kept on reading it, my interest started growing, and it got to the point that I just couldn't stop reading it at the end. Really funny and touching at the same time. I enjoyed it.

A funny British tale!

I agree with the previous reviewer who compared this Kinsella novel to the classic film "Bringing Up Baby." I can just see Sam Roxston played by Cary Grant, and Poppy Wyatt played (to perfection) by the amazing Katharine Hepburn. Its a zany story that is carried along by strong characters, and I find myself laughing out loud as I commute to and from work. This is my first experience with Kinsella, and I am very glad I took a chance to opted for a new author. The British narrator was at first a bit hard on these American ears, but I soon grew used to her voice and mannerisms. Thoroughly enjoyed the story. :)

Everything that is great about Kinsella's writing!

Would you listen to I've Got Your Number again? Why?

Absolutely. (Already have, actually!) Sophie Kinsella's heroines are always wonderfully flawed, but there's just something special about Poppy. She gives in to all those little impulses real-world people fight, and the results are hilariously heartwarming. Listening to a Sophia Kinsella novel never fails to put me in a great mood.

What was one of the most memorable moments of I've Got Your Number?

I loved the texting scene in the woods at the conference. It just seemed cheesily magical.

Who was the most memorable character of I've Got Your Number and why?

Poppy Wyatt. She's impulsive in a way I wish I could be but have the sense to refrain from, and I loved cringing at her missteps that worked out in the end.

Any additional comments?

The Shopaholic books have been my go-to guilty pleasure reading for several years now, but somehow I enjoyed I've Got Your Number even more.
