My Rating: 5 out of 5
If you’re an avid light reader and love books that contain all that light-hearted drama, fun, and cute romance then this is one novel you need to get your hands on….really quick!
One of the important ingredients to cook a brilliant book is to write in a way that keeps the reader connected and unable to resist from turning the pages. Sophie Kinsella excels in that and undoubtedly this is one of her masterpieces.
The story begins at a fast pace and immediately pulls me into it. Poppy Wyatt is an interesting character who has a very bright mind but is always caught between saying the truth and keeping people happy. She doesn’t really speak what she thinks about people for the fear of upsetting them. She’s engaged and doesn’t like her in-laws much, but how can she tell them? In an attempt to impress them, Poppy does some silly things that are incredibly fun to read. Sam, the other lead is a very calm and subtle character. The clash between both personalities and their inability to ignore each other make this a must read for light moods.
I personally feel people from all ages will love this, especially women in their twenties and I give this awesome novel 5 out 5 stars.
