So its no big secret we love a good book here at mummy magic! One of my all time favourite authors has to be Sophie Kinsella.
I don't know what is about her writing but her books just really tickle me! The funniest one i have read of hers is 'Can you keep a secret'. I remember being on holiday with my hubby and literally laughing out loud every 5 minutes and him keep asking what are you laughing at?
When we went away this year i picked up her new book 'I've got your number' at the WH Smiths at the airport (as you do, standard holiday protocol).
Did anyone ever read her book 'Twenties Girl'? Well for me that was a big flop! It just wasn't her best at all i found it quite boring and just wasn't up to the usual standard (sorry Sophie). So when i bought this new book i was a bit dubious as to weather it would be a let down too.
Well i have to say it was brilliant! So so funny and i could really imagine myself as the lead character 'Poppy' which may be why i found it so amusing!
Synopsis taken from www.sophiekinsella.co.uk
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 the ideal man, Magnus Tavish, but in one afternoon her 'happy ever after' begins to fall apart. Not only has she lost her engagement ring but in the panic that followed, she has now lost her phone. As she paces shakily round the hotel foyer she spots an abandoned phone in a bin. Finders keepers! Now she can leave a number for the hotel to contact her when they find her ring. Perfect!
Well, perfect except the phone's owner, businessman Sam Roxton doesn't agree. He wants his phone back anddoesn't appreciate Poppy reading all 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 andhiding her left hand from Magnus and his parents... she soon realises that she is in for the biggest surprise of her life.
It was a brilliant read i couldn't put it down and really funny! If you like light hearted chicklit then this is a fab book for you!
