Review: I've Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella

Capricious, eccentric, and brilliant are the words that come to mind when I think of Sophie Kinsella. I've Got Your Number is the newest of Kinsellas novels and it will not disappoint. 

Poppy Wyatt is about to marry the man of her dreams. The smart and handsome Magnus Tavish. But in the midst of a hotel fire drill her engagement ring goes missing, as if this weren't bad enough, during the panic, someone steals her cell phone. 

Poppy is frantic, she needs a phone so the hotel can contact her if they find the ring. Did I mention it's a family heirloom? In her desperation, Poppy finds a phone in a garbage bin and decides "what the heck, finders keepers". What Poppy doesn't realize is that her new phone will change her life for ever. 

The phones owner, businessman Sam Roxton, wants his phone back. Eventually, Poppy and Sam make an agreement to share the phone until Poppy finds her ring, at which time, she'll return the phone. What proceeds is a hilarious cluster of events.   

I found myself laughing out loud through most of I've Got Your Number. Poppy is witty, spontaneous, and a tad bit dependent on what others think of her. Sam is uptight, to the point, and could care less what the world thinks of him. Sharing the phone was one of the funniest things about this book and Kinsella's natural voice kept me up late at night needing to know what would happen next. 

The only downside to the story is that if you read it on an e-reader be prepared to be a tad bit annoyed by the footnotes. There are many, and it's actually pretty funny, but it's more than distracting and cuts the flow of the story each time you have to click on the footnotes. Otherwise, I would have given the book a solid 5 hearts! 

My Rating
