VO - Sophie Kinsella

Sophie Kinsella

I’ve got your number

Aux éditions Black Swan,  Avril 2013
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 the ideal man, Magnus Tavish, but in one afternoon her 'happy ever after' begins to fall apart.  Not only has she lost her engagement ring but in the panic that followed, she has now lost her phone. As she paces shakily round the hotel foyer she spots an abandoned phone in a bin. Finders keepers!  Now she can leave a number for the hotel to contact her when they find her ring. Perfect !

Well, perfect 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.
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 realises that she is in for the biggest surprise of her life.

Mon avis : 
Un court avis pour ce roman très girly que j’ai lu en version originale. J’ai passé un très bon moment. L’héroïne, Poppy, est très attachante et drôle malgré elle ! 
En bref, à quelques jours de son mariage, Poppy perd sa bague de fiançailles et on lui vole son téléphone portable dans la foulée. Elle trouve un téléphone, dans une poubelle, qui semble donc « abandonné ». Elle décide alors de l’ « emprunter » pour ces messages et appels. Il s’avère que le téléphone appartient à une société et Poppy, qui refuse de rendre le portable pour des raisons pratiques, se retrouve à collaborer avec le beau Sam, businessman.
Ce livre se lit très rapidement car l’histoire est marrante et simple. C’est un bon livre de détente, je le conseille :)

3,8 / 5

« Do not hyperventilate, Poppy. Stay positive. I just need to look at this from a different angle. »

Mon livre préféré de Sophie Kinsella reste 
Les petits secrets d’Emma 
qui est vraiment très drôle.
