This is the second Kinsella book I've listened to on audio and I once again enjoyed it. This book is in the same fashion as Kinsella's others.
Our main character is a young girl named Poppy Wyatt who is in love and about to be married. She's a physical therapist that fell in love with one of her patients named Magnus Tavish. He's a handsome academic type that just adores her.
Enter Sam Roxton, he's a stubborn business man who needs Poppy's help. But he has no idea what he's getting into when he meets her. The pair meet on accident when Poppy's phone gets stolen after she's lost her engagement ring at a hotel, and Sam's PA ditches her phone in the trash--good riddance!
Through out the next week or so leading up to Poppy's wedding Sam let's her borrow the phone she found until she sorts everything out & gets one of her own (I use the term lets her borrow it loosely). In return Poppy has to agree to forward all of his messages & stay out of his business. But Poppy has no intention of returning the phone because it's finders keepers. She does however plan on getting into Sam's business a little bit & improve his communication skills along the way since he is the king of the brush off email!
Sam & Poppy go through a series of crazy situations including getting her a fake engagement ring until her's is returned & Poppy sends one too many emails in Sam's name before it's too late to take them back. Meanwhile Poppy is battling Magnus's family that doesn't really like her & Sam is sharing more of himself with Poppy than anyone he's ever met before. Can Sam & Poppy each find happiness, or will they have to find each other first?
Likes: The dialog is hilarious as with all of Kinsella's books! The story is kind of predictable but you never know what the main character Poppy has up her sleeve. Some of the story is also told through text which breaks up the monotony & keeps your interest.
Poppy adds funny footnotes in when she has a thought. In the book they are all at the end of the chapter, but in the audio version they are said at the time which I find to make the story better instead of flipping to read them or see them later.
Of course there was a happily ever after but with a funny twist!
