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.
One of my great big fears is losing my cell phone, probably more for the lost wages that would occur (I am not insured and am no where near upgrade time) than the lost contacts. What I don't want to lose is my number...I already did that 18 months ago when I switched carriers and in place of the trusty number I had for nearly 5 years I was given a number that some one else had used and given out, everywhere. Maybe it's my own experience with receiving phone calls and texts intended for someone else but I know exactly what drew Poppy to do some of the crazy things she did on behalf of Sam with her finders keepers phone.
In Poppy Wyatt and Sam Roxton, Sophine Kinsella has given her readers a new set of characters who are very different yet meant so much for each other. Well written, with a charming story line, a little intrigue, and a moment or two of "Oh no Poppy, don't do it!" I found myself a little sad when it was time to bid Sam and Poppy farewell.
