A couple of glasses of bubbly with the girls at a charity do and Poppy’s life has gone into meltdown. Not only has she lost her engagement ring, but in the panic that followed, she’s lost her phone too. As she paces shakily round the hotel foyer she spots an abandoned phone in a bin. Finders keepers! Now she can leave a number with the hotel staff. It was meant to be!
Except the phone’s owner, businessman Sam Roxton, doesn’t agree. He wants his phone back, and doesn’t appreciate Poppy reading all his messages and wading into his personal life.
As Poppy juggles wedding preparations, phone messages and hiding her left hand from Magnus and his parents, can things get any more tangled?
Welcome to Rules of Romantic Comedy 101 with all important footnotes!!!
Our leading lady with a heart of gold is invariably marrying the wrong guy (1). He doesn’t truly love her, treat her right etc etc etc….
There must be a meet-cute to set hearts all a flutter (2)
New boy understands girl like no one else before (3)
There is A LOT of flirtation without either party realising they’re flirting. They think they’re just getting to know a new “friend”. Texting is a GREAT medium for this!! (4)
Something will happen to tear our new couple apart and force the girl back with the wrong guy. I’m not good enough for new hot boy (5)

- obviously! We need drama
- no true love relationship in a rom-com will last unless we get the ridiculously adorable and uniquely memorable first meeting
- it’s fate!
- if when Harry met Sally has taught us anything it is that men and women can’t be friends!
- see footnote 1!!!
- and they all lived happily ever after
Overall this was a brilliantly funny and escapist read.
