Book Review: I've Got Your Number

I just finished reading, I've Got Your Number, by Sophie Kinsella, published in 2012. As usual, she produced a fun, fast read that has the reader rooting for the main character. I thoroughly enjoyed it from cover to cover.

The main character, Poppy Wyatt, is engaged to Magnus Tavish, a handsome and brilliant scholar. Although his family intimidates her, Poppy is sure that all will be well after their lavish wedding. Her misadventures as she tries to make it work, will have the reader in stitches.

After losing her phone, Poppy stumbles across an abandoned one, and quickly begins using it. When the rightful owner of the phone turns out to be a dashing businessman named Sam Roxton, the two begin a bizarre relationship of texting and emails. In the cyber world, they each learn secrets about the other, and soon become friends.

Sam has a business crisis, at the same time that Poppy learns that her fiance has been unfaithful. In working through the repercussions, they begin to realize that they have developed feelings for each other.

The reader is left wondering until the end whether Poppy will call off her ill-fated wedding. Will she settle for a man that she doesn't really love, or will she find happiness with Sam? Regular readers of Kinsella's books can probably guess the answer. I'd urge anyone in search of a quick, cheerful book to read this.


  1. I loved this book, too! I am a huge Sophie Kinsella fan. :)

    1. I'm invariably cheered up after reading one of her books. The characters find themselves in such ridiculous (yet possible) situations that it's fun to learn just how they're going to extricate themselves.

  2. I love this book. Just finished reading it. =_
