I’ve Got Your Number BLURB:
“Utterly charming . . . Put Sophie Kinsella’s Number on speed dial.”—USA Today
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.

“Fresh, fast-paced, and fiercely funny . . . Kinsella pens her most lovably neurotic protagonist yet. . . . A laugh-out-loud comic caper.”—Publishers Weekly
“Poppy is easily as charming and daffy as shopaholic Rebecca Bloomwood.”—Kirkus Reviews
“A screwball romance for the digital age.”—The Star-Ledger

Sophie Kinsella strikes again! This hilarious standalone will be perfect for your happy reading time!
Poppy Wyatt has it all, but during a fire in a hotel, she loses her engagement ring, one that’s been in her fiancé’s family to three generations. Not having a phone, she finds one in a trash can and she uses that to alert the hotel to reach her when they find her ring.
“I’ve never felt so bereft and panicky. What do I do without my phone? How do I function? My hand keeps automatically reaching for my phone in its usual place in my pocket. Every instinct in me wants to text someone, ‘OMG, I’ve lost my phone! ‘ but how can do that without a bloody phone?”
The catch with this phone is that it belongs to businessman Sam Roxton, who wants his phone back.
Hilarious texting, constant bickering about the phone makes this one hell of a story.
While Poppy deals with everything, she helps Sam through some hoops. During this time, she finds out that her fiancé is a total jerk and Sam turns from jerk to a whole lot of interesting guy.
“We’re playing Scrabble. It’s a nightmare.”
“Scrabble?” He sounds surprised. “Scrabble’s great.”
“Not when you’re playing with a family of geniuses, it’s not. They all put words like ‘iridiums’. And I put ‘pig’.”
