It was a lovely story. Poppy is quite a star! Very annoying on one level but also very lovable on another. Her hunt for and finding her father was a great sideline to the main story. It was a bit dated but that's because it was written a while ago, just took me a while to realise I hadn't read it yet.

I so enjoyed reading this book. It caught me up and didn't let me go til I had finished it. The story revolves around Poppy who, after a brief conversation with a man (Tom) she meets on her hen night, realises that she can't marry her fiancee the next day. She does the decent and rather traumatic thing and tells Rob it's all off on the morning of the wedding, but misses her chance to find out if Tom could really be the one. In the ensuing uproar, Rob lets slip the family secret that Poppy's father is not the cold, unfeeling man that brought her up, instead she is the product of a summer fling that her mother had long ago with a man who fled back to his wife in London. With that, Poppy moves to London herself, with several motives: find Tom, find her real father, find herself a better life. She ends up living with gorgeous artist and total man-whore, Caspar and snobby, moody Claudia. If she finds her father, will he want to know her? If she finds Tom, will their relationship be what they both thought it could be? Can she resist Caspar's charms as he flirts and beds his way around London? And so the story begins...
The story was very involving. There are quite a lot of side characters as well as the main three; Claudia's selfish mother, Poppy's geeky boss, her almost sister-in-law, Dina, and Tom, the elusive man who so captured her heart that night. They are well-written characters that all have an important role to play in the story.
Jill Mansell writes the story in a way that keeps you informed of each character's thoughts but ups the suspense factor because so much is left unsaid to each other and so much is misunderstood. I was racing towards the end of the book (always a good sign!) to find out what was going to happen and there were several good twists along the way.

When Poppy Dunbar meets handsome Tom on her hen night it makes her realise that getting married the next day to Rob Macbride is a bad idea. To escape the fall-out that arises when she jilts the most desirable bachelor in town, Poppy moves to London. She ends up with a room in the bohemian household of Casper French, an eccentric young artist known almost as much for his success with the opposite sex as for his paintings. Inbetween working for unassuming Jake on the antiques stall during the day, her less regular evening job, trying to make friends with posh housemate Claudia and fielding calls from Casper's girlfriends, Poppy keeps a look-out for Tom, the man who destiny put in her path with such far reaching consequences.

Though the reader might have a good guess at the eventual outcome of one or two story lines early on, the getting there is a lot of fun and not always predictable. The characters are overall fairly stereotypical but nevertheless on the whole well fleshed out, you'll soon have a favourite or two. The book is very much about the interaction between the male and female cast and, though not as chaste as Barbara Cartland, by no means explicit. From misunderstandings and well meant actions that backfire to moments of triumph, there are tears of sadness and tears of joy aplenty. The ending... well, it is what makes or breaks a book, isn't it? For my part it was spot on in this case.

It struck me that maybe in a hundred years time someone like Jill Mansell will be called the Jane Austen of the twenty-first century.

ok so I am reading the book title and the intro and I am intrigued! It' all about Poppy who meets Tom right before her wedding and this encounter is so overwhelming that she needs to cancel the wedding! I am thinking so let's find out what happens next. Well, you read on and on and Poppy goes to London and meets people, finds a job, finds her dad bla bla bla. But Tom is not there. Or rather, he is in London but she has lost his address so she can't find him. So there is no Tom for the next 200 pages. Ok there are other stories all along but I really wanted to see if she finds Tom (wasn't that the point of the book I wondered?). So I kept reading hoping to find Tom and he turns up, well, way past the middle of the book. But Poppy won't be able to talk to him......Anyway things pick up later in the book but the author doesn't devote as much time (page space) to this story. I was so disappointed. And even though she does write about other male characters' thoughts in the book, Tom's thoughts and decisions are not mentioned. I thought he didn't get a fair chance.
Overall, the book was easily and enjoyably read. The author is a great storyteller with a very engaging writing style that keeps you want to read more and more. There are a lot of surprises in the book that will keep you hooked (I almost missed my bus stop while reading on the bus) but there are no noble characters in the book. They all looked very superficial to me. Of course, if you see it as an adult fairytale you'll totally enjoy it (hoping this doesn't happen in real life and people are better than this) and if you are looking for a book to pass the time during a journey this will be a great choice but if you are looking for inspiration I don't think you'll find it here.
