Poppy Wyatt is euphoric as she is engaged to Dr. Magnus Tavish, Fellow at King’s College London. She and seven of her friends celebrate her engagement at Marie Curie Champagne Tea. They are looking at her heirloom engagement ring that has been part of his family for three generations when sirens force them outside. However, no one claims to have Poppy’s ring while his parents are flying to London from Chicago to meet her. Worse her cell phone is missing too.

Panic and anxiety attacks batter Poppy. When she finds a cell phone tossed in the grave, she uses it to give the hotel a number to reach her if they find the ring. However the phone’s owner, Sam Roxton wants his cell back while she refuses. As she reads his fascinating text messages, Poppy meets her future in-laws while hiding her ring hand from them. Adding to her bewilderment is her feelings seem to be out of whack.

This is a zany contemporary romance starring a shocked young woman hoping for a miracle but when one arrives she may miss it. Over the top of King’s College London School of Medicine, I’ve Got Your Number is a madcap frantic chick lit tale.
