Friday - - Great Reads -

by So­phie Kin­sella

Al­though pro­lific Shopa­holic se­ries queen Kin­sella has re­leased a more re­cent stand­alone tome – 2013’s Wed­ding Night, about a rushed mar­riage – this 2012 page-turner ticks all of our boxes for a first-rate, ro­man­tic com­edy of er­rors. Poppy is en­gaged to Mag­nus and life looks rosy – un­til she loses both her heir­loom en­gage­ment ring and phone at a ho­tel, that is. On her fran­tic search to re­trieve them she stum­bles across some­one else’s aban­doned mo­bile and de­cides to hold on to it – en­ter uptight busi­ness­man Sam, the real phone owner, and cue typ­i­cal Kin­sella-style mis­ad­ven­tures as Poppy and Sam get em­broiled in each other’s lives through texts and emails while jug­gling monster-in-laws, pre-wed­ding jit­ters and pro­fes­sional dis­as­ters. Rife with witty di­a­logue and the in­evitable at­trac­tion of op­po­sites, this charm­ing read will keep Shopa­holic fans and new read­ers hooked to the end to dis­cover who turns out to be Poppy’s real Mr Right.
