Poppy Wyatt looses her engagement ring at a fancy hotel in the chaos surrounding a fire alarm. Her cell phone is stolen soon after, but Poppy lands a lucky break when she finds another phone discarded in a trash bin. She gets more than she bargained for, however, as her life becomes entangled with that of the phone's owner—businessman Sam Roxton. Sharing the phone and reading each other's texts and emails give Poppy and Sam a unique insight into each other's lives, as two strangers turn into unlikely friends.
VERDICT Poppy, narrated with energy and enthusiasm by Jayne Entwistle, is full of good intentions that end up getting her in a mess of trouble, but she will keep listeners laughing as she tries to sort things out. ["Best-selling author Kinsella's latest frolic is a bona fide winner," read the starred review of the Dial: Random hc, LJ Xpress Reviews, 2/10/12.—Ed.]
