From the bestselling author of THREE AMAZING THINGS ABOUT YOU and THE ONE YOU REALLY WANT comes a sweet, funny tale of a romantic encounter that throws everything up in the air.
Poppy Dunbar is out on her hen night when she meets Tom Kennedy.
With his dark eyes and quirky smile, he could lure any girl off the straight and narrow, but what really draws Poppy to him is the feeling that she's known him all her life.
She can't go through with the meeting they arrange - but she can't go through with the wedding either.
Suddenly notorious as 'The Girl Who Jilted Rob Macbride', Poppy moves to London.
Soon Poppy's installed in the bohemian household of Caspar French, a ravishingly good-looking young artist with a reputation for breaking hearts.
But even in her colourful new home, Poppy can't get Tom off her mind.
Until she's tracked him down, she'll never know if their meeting was destiny - or if the future holds something entirely different for her...

Review by bookwormygirl
Poppy Dunbar and her friends are out on the town - having a good `ol time celebrating Poppy's last night as a single lady. But when Poppy stumbles - practically into Tom's arms - he definitely throws a kink in her plans. Before the night is out, Poppy comes to terms that marrying Robbie might not be the best thing for her. She breaks the news to her father and to Robbie and his family and quickly packs up her bags and heads off on a new adventure.... a new life in London.Poppy's life in London - is the perfect romantic comedy. The acquaintances she makes, her new living arrangement, flatmates, possible love interests, and all these comic mishaps, that will have you laughing out loud.This is my first Jill Mansell book - and I can't believe what I've been missing out on. I need to get my hands on another one stat. This was fabulous. It is British Chick Lit and it is just plain wonderful. I loved Poppy and all the shenanigans that ensue shortly after you start reading about her. All the characters you meet along the way are just so unique and quite special really. This was a ton of fun to read, with plenty of nail-biting moments as to who Poppy's love interest would finally be. I read this rather quickly as I was intrigued from the start. This is chick lit at it's best - especially with all the hilarious situations Poppy finds herself in. I highly recommend.
