196. Perfect Timing by Jill Mansell...

November 5, 2009
perfect timingAbout the book:
The timing couldn’t be worse…

Sparks flying between Poppy Dunbar and a handsome stranger the night before her wedding set Poppy on a wild and wacky journey of self-discovery. She flees the sweet, boring, predictable life she could have had in search of a mysterious stranger and a fresh start in London.

But there, her life is complicated by Caspar, her gorgeous flatmate, who has big plans for her. Now if only the two of them can get their timing right…

drey's thoughts:
Oh, Poppy. Such a well-meaning girl. Such a silly girl. Walking away from tying the knot because you think you’re marrying the wrong man, even though you know nothing at all about the guy you’d just met. In any case, she walks. And finds herself in London, alone, with the newfound knowledge that her father, really isn’t. Now, her mission is two-fold: find the stranger that she only knows as Tom, and find her father.

Poppy is a funny, warm, sympathetic character. She is lucky, too—-finding herself a room while working at an event, getting a job with a boss who puts up with her flightiness… Her roommates are quirky and amusing-—Caspar more than Claudia, who can be just a witch. As time goes by, and Poppy achieves some of her goals, she learns that you don't always want what you thought you did, once you get it. And that some things are best left unsaid.

Perfect Timing is quirky chick-lit that you will breeze through in a flash.

I just finished this up recently myself. I loved it, and have some of her other books on my TBR list now.
