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 her ideal man, Magnus Tavish, but in one afternoon her “happily ever after” begins to fall apart. Not only has she lost her engagement ring in a hotel fire drill but in the panic that follows, her phone is stolen. As she paces shakily around the lobby, she spots an abandoned phone in a trash can. Finders keepers! Now she can leave a number for the hotel to contact her when they find her ring. Perfect!
Well, perfect except that the phone’s owner, businessman Sam Roxton, doesn’t agree. He wants his phone back and doesn’t appreciate Poppy reading 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, and hiding her left hand from Magnus and his parents . . . she soon realizes that she is in for the biggest surprise of her life.


I have a lot of expectations from this book because of the praises it got from my colleagues and for the raging 5 stars reviews in Goodreads. And I was glad because it had a great time. I can’t count how many times I laughed my heart out while reading it. Oh men! I’ll be stalking this writer for her other books. And I am dying to read them all.

This book actually started when Poppy (main female character) lost her WEDDING RING (yeah, capslock to make it more intense) after attending this Marie Curie Champagne Tea with some friends. And then, she lost her phone, or to say it right, stolen. What an unlucky day for Poppy eh? Considering that she needed her cellphone if ever the hotel employees would find her ring. But lucky for her, she found a cellphone in a trash bin. Yeah eh? She thought that’s the end of her disastrous day, but that isn’t. Because it’s just a prelude to another interesting adventure.

Sounds fun eh? It sure is! Just in its first chapter, you will all find yourselves laughing. Hahaha, I can’t forget the scene with Poppy and those Japanese guys wherein she sang for them. Wanna know why? Then you should read the book, now!

Who here can relate to pretending to be an answering machine when accidentally picking up a call? Hahahaha. And that’s one of the things I like about this book. It’s very easy to picture out and the characters aren’t so damn perfect that you can’t see any flaws in them. There isn’t any over exaggerated description of its characters which makes this book annoying free to readers like me, *wink. But what also makes this book stand-out to me is the footnotes. My! I’ve never read one before. The footnotes itself makes me think that I am reading Poppy’s diary. So far, I don’t have any complaints on the words used because all of them are so easy to understand. 

This is actually my first time reading a book from the author, and I must say that I am really impressed. The story line is also impressive and there’s actually not a single part of this book that defines the word boring. There’s even an addition of suspense and mystery in this book. Awesome right? And what’s also awesome is my almost 100 notes from this book. 

I am giving this book a 4 stars rating instead of 5 because, as you all know, I’m a hopeless romantic chick. And I just think that the “kilig” moments between Poppy and Sam isn’t enough in my case. Hahaha, I just think their love story needs more exposure 😉
