When the calls start coming in Poppy learns that the phone belongs to the former PA of businessman Sam Roxton who after much negotiation allows Poppy to keep the phone until she can replace hers. As part of the agreement Poppy has to forward all Sam’s emails but curiosity gets the better of her and she starts reading all the messages. When she decides to “help” Sam out by replying to important work issues, the craziness begins.
I completely enjoyed reading I’ve Got Your Number but I have to say, if you’ve read any of the Shopaholic books by Kinsella you’ve basically read this one. Poppy is the same character as Becky Bloomwood and Sam is the same as Luke Brandon and the ending was pretty predictable. One thing that set this book apart from that series was the use of footnotes. Poppy’s fiancé Magnus and his family come from a family of academics and Poppy feels inferior to them so she uses footnotes in the story to seem smarter. They are at times informative, cute, funny or snarky and add just the extra touch this book needed to make it a winner. I highly recommend this one for all chick-lit readers.
