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.

Pure fun

This is my first Sophie Kinsella book and it was very enjoyable. This is not anything that is going to challenge you as a listener, but sometimes I have to take a break from my usual thrillers and heavier fiction and just listen to something that's just plain fun. This fit the bill perfectly.

Finally, back to the original clever story type

When Kinsella rocked the entertaining book market with her first, unique, self-effacing, hilarious "Can you keep a secret?" novel, I was an instant convert. I excitedly purchased every subsequent novel following the same character through trials, tribulations, engagement, and childbirth, until the concept was beaten into mind-numbing redundancy. She had gone from fresh to beyond dull, and seemed to be flogging a tired, if not dead, horse. I eventually tired of the predictable triteness. I have ignored her work for years, expecting the same shallow refrain. I had the same experience with Janet Evanovich. It is almost like the earlier TV portrayals of Poirot, characicaturizing him to the point of a cartoon character.

Anyway, I don't know what made me to consider Kinsella again. Possibly because I saw she had given up on the original overdone character; and created a new one. The story line actually sounded similar to the first, only new and fresh. So I decided to risk a credit.

When I first started listening, I thought I had made another mistake. The narrator sounded like a bad, low-class reader with a British accent. She sounded tacky. I kept listening, however, and she eventually seemed to grow into character. I still think they could have chosen a better narrator, but the story was well worth the listen. The entertaining domino effect of the loss of an engagement ring makes for a wonderfully chacterized and enjoyable romp.
