"A very funny read." * Sun * "Sophie Kinsella is always the ideal holiday companion. Her books are funny, entertaining, delightfully fluffy and easy to pick up and put down. You can go for a hike or a quick dip in the ocean and then rejoin the party: they're like coming back to old friends. My favourite is I've Got Your Number - an interesting take on modern relationships which really made me chortle." * Jody Picoult *
