There are two reasons for skim-reading a book. Either you’re so bored by what you’re reading, you just want to finish. Or you’re so hooked that you can’t help but jump through the pages. I’m pleased to say for me… it was the latter! So many times I had to stop myself reading and tell myself to slow down, ha! I had to force myself to relax as I would still find out what happens in the end.
Yes, this book was superb. Extremely well written. It had the right amount of humour, sadness, anger and mystery. All of which sum up to a pretty fab read.
Poppy was an extremely likeable character. She cannot believe her luck as she is getting married to a handsome, intelligent gentleman who swept her off her feet and proposed very quickly. There are some quirks, but she is so deeply in love with Magnus. There are issues with the parents who come across as snotty and too good for her which makes her extremely insecure and inferior in their presence. But then, by chance when her own phone is stolen, she finds another which leads her to Sam. A very straight talking businessman who no sign of emotion or feelings but her sudden involvement in his life leads her on a whirlwind adventure to places she never could have imagined.
This book was a random purchase in Tesco, very unplanned, but unplanned purchases are the best don’t you think 😊
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.
