Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “A smart lesson wrapped in a gem of a novel.”—Jodi Picoult, #1 New York Times bestselling author of A Spark of Light and Small Great Things

From the author of Surprise Me comes an irresistible story of love and empowerment about a young woman with a complicated family, a handsome man who might be “the one,” and an IOU that changes everything.


Fixie Farr has always lived by her father’s motto: “Family first.” And since her dad passed away, leaving his charming housewares store in the hands of his wife and children, Fixie spends all her time picking up the slack from her siblings instead of striking out on her own. The way Fixie sees it, if she doesn’t take care of her father’s legacy, who will?

It’s simply not in Fixie’s nature to say no to people. So when a handsome stranger in a coffee shop asks her to watch his laptop for a moment, she not only agrees—she ends up saving it from certain disaster. To thank Fixie for her quick thinking, the computer’s owner, Sebastian, an investment manager, scribbles an IOU on a coffee sleeve and attaches his business card. Fixie laughs it off—she’d never actually claim an IOU from a stranger. Would she?

But then Fixie’s childhood crush, Ryan, comes back into her life, and his lack of a profession pushes all of Fixie’s buttons. As always, she wants nothing for herself—but she’d love Seb to give Ryan a job. No sooner has Seb agreed than the tables are turned once more and a new series of IOUs between Seb and Fixie—from small favors to life-changing moments—ensues. Soon Fixie, Ms. Fixit for everyone else, is torn between her family and the life she really wants. Does she have the courage to take a stand? Will she finally grab the life, and love, she really wants?

Customer Reviews

Cute quick read of a family’s differences

Three siblings who have been thrust together to run their parents local store after their father passes away and their mother has her own health scare. Mom leaves the country to travel entrusting the store and its success to her children who have many differences with one another and only one of whom is invested in the store and has experience of working there. The youngest of the 3, feels inferior in her older siblings shadows. Her sister is married and self absorbed and her brother is the golden child and is said to run multimillion dollar-companies and is in process of receiving his MBA.
When they all come together, the truth of all of their lives comes forward and things aren’t as they have seemed to be. The climax of the story is watching the younger sibling come into her own and discover who she truly is versus who her family thinks she is. Her self discovery leads to a strong woman who no longer allows others to take advantage of her meek demeanor and kindness.
Overall was a fun, easy to read book with typical characters and one brilliant and witty main character.

Unnerving “heroine”

Have generally loved Sophie Kinsella so couldn’t wait for this book to be released. That said, this a great story altogether but it got to a point I found Fixie to be unnerving and just wanted to finish reading the book knowing everything would be alright in the end

No

I’ve read all of SK’s books and adored them. But this one was hard to get through. The main character acts and thinks like a 14 year old. Her decisions and inner thoughts were absolutely cringeworthy until the very end of the book, and painful even then. None of the characters are likeable. Everyone is selfish and horrible to each other. Do yourself a favor and skip this one.
