3.5 stars. Slow start but then very cute & funny, though totally predictable. Could see the movie while I read: is Hugh Grant too old for this one? ;-)

I love Sophie Kinsella's books and I think this one might be my favorite. Laugh out loud funny, emotionally satisfying, romantic, and characters who feel real. Ms. Kinsella has such a knack for finding those perfect character moments (Poppy's rule for life! Sam's response!). --
(1) Loved the footnotes too!
