Not as amusing and funny as other Kinsella novels I have read in the past. I found it draggy at times and definitely predictable.

I had to stifle my laughter as I read in bed at night so I wouldn't wake my husband up.

After the disappointment (at least to me) that was Mini-Shopaholic, it took me a while to want to read another Sophie Kinsella novel. In fact, I bought I've Got Your Number over a year ago and only just got around to reading it. But boy am I glad I did. The story is filled with twists, humor and intrigue and, of course, romance. The author has a gift for writing love stories without making them too cheesy or sappy, which is an easy trap to fall into when you write chick-lit. I was completely riveted, I could not put the book down and was even a little sad when I finished it. My love for Sophie's work has definitely been rekindled and I look forward to reading more from her!

If you enjoy reading Sophie's novels you will like this book. Classic Sophie style: rom-com, light and fluffy. Very enjoyable!

Massage therapist Poppy Wyatt is horrified when she loses her emerald engagement ring after a luncheon with friends. Thinking it might have been stolen, she rushes outside to call the police, however her phone is grabbed right out of her hand by a thief. As she heads back inside for help she spots someone else’s phone in the garbage bin and picks it up. Poppy learns that it’s the discarded business phone of a personal assistant who’s abruptly quit her job. Her employer, Sam Roxton, wants his phone back. Since Poppy’s already given this number to hotel staff and friends, she begs to keep it until her ring is found and promises to forward all of Sam’s messages to him. Reluctantly, he agrees. The more Poppy gets to know Sam via emails, the more she wants to help him sort out a growing scandal at the company. Sometimes, though, emails and texts don’t reveal everything. Other times they reveal far too much.

I’ve Got Your Number is a light, fun read incorporating technology in an interesting way. I liked that the flaky, snoopy, insecure Poppy has more depth, backbone, and morality than first appears. We see a woman who is totally intimidated by people become a stronger person willing to stand up for what’s right. Sam’s communications with Poppy also begin to reveal a different side than the blunt, humorless man she thought he was.

Poppy’s transformation was definitely welcome, as a whole book of ditzy behavior would have worn thin. As it was, the 100+ footnotes Poppy inserted in the tale became so annoying that I stopped reading them. Also, many of the other characters are two-dimensional. On the upside, though, the story had me laughing out loud in places. Those who want a quick, light, fun read will enjoy this novel, especially if you like footnotes.

This book was such a page turner. Once again, Sophie Kinsella hooks you right at the beginning and keeps the story going at such a great pace. Definitely recommend.
