Cute, quirky, and endearing. Those words describe the main character, Poppy, as well as almost every other character that graces the story. The book was a delicious romp as Poppy seeks to rebuild her life after leaving her fiance on the morning of their wedding.

I expected the book to be about Poppy's efforts to track down Tom, but that played only a minor part in the story. I was surprised at numerous parts of the story, which isn't something you expect when reading chick lit. The British slang was distracting at first, but once I got into the swing of it, it wasn't noticeable at all.

It is the perfect beach read, and I will certainly be picking up other books from Jill Mansell.

Rita discovers who Poppy's mother was, yet she never says anything to Poppy about it. Why? That bothered me. I was hoping (and expecting) her to mention it in the final scene, but alas, she did not. That was a bit disappointing.
