I Owe You One – A Novel by Sophie Kinsella
Welcome to our first ever Book Club post! I’m so excited to be kicking this off with one of my favorite authors, Sophie Kinsella, and her brand new book, I Owe You One. I’ve fallen in love with Sophie Kinsella’s writing over the years and her trademark strong female characters. They are smart, charming, witty, and flawed and that’s what has me coming back to her writing, book after book and year after year. Her novels are the epitome of a “good time read” and will almost always have you laughing out loud!
Fixie Farr is, well, a fixer. Whether it be keeping the family business afloat or using a chance meeting with a stranger to get her ex-boyfriend a job, she’s always looking out for others. The trouble is she is rarely taking care of herself. Through a series of hilarious and heartbreaking events, Fixie is forced to think about what she wants out of her life. Will she be brave enough to pursue it or continue being content to set others up for success?
From the Editors
Why We Chose It:
I love a book with a quirky and quick witted protagonist, and this book is just that! A charming, fast and funny read that will have you giggling out loud… If you ask me, it’s the perfect Saturday book.
– Ashley Brooke
As a self-proclaimed fixer who loves to jump in and save the day, I could totally relate to Fixie’s desire to help everyone but herself. After all, how can we know what we want, when we are preoccupied with everyone else’s happiness? Once again, Sophie Kinsella has drawn fun, quirky characters that capture our hearts. Being a long time Kinsella fan, I would expect nothing less.
Another fabulous read by Sophie Kinsella! I found myself seeing many qualities of my own in Fixie, as I am sure you will too. It is entertaining and lighthearted with characters you will adore!
