Reviews

This book is a shot of pure joy.

Jenny Colgan

I love having the opportunity to escape with a Sophie Kinsella book, and I OWE YOU ONE came just when I needed it. Fixie’s story is one of missed cues, mistakes, and the realization that you can’t fix someone else’s mess until you fix your own — a smart lesson, wrapped in a gem of a novel.

Jodi Picoult, New York Times bestselling author of A SPARK OF LIGHT and SMALL GREAT THINGS

Compulsively readable . . . I adored it.

A humorous exploration of family life, finding love and the difficulties of coming into one’s own as a young professional woman . . . Will certainly remind readers why 19 years after her first hit Kinsella remains one of the reigning queens of women’s fiction.

Heartwarming . . . Once again, Kinsella creates a sweet, relatable lead you can’t help rooting for.

On the other hand, there was the time I brushed a piece of fluff off the leg of a woman sitting next to me by the pool at a spa day. I was just trying to be helpful. Only it turned out it wasn’t a piece of fluff, it was a pubic hair growing halfway down her thigh. And then I made things worse by saying, ‘Sorry!
