The irresistible standalone from Sophie Kinsella is a story of love, empowerment and an IOU that changes everything . . .
Fixie Farr can’t help herself. Straightening a crooked object, removing a barely-there stain, helping out a friend . . . she just has to put things right. It’s how she got her nickname, after all.
So when a handsome stranger in a coffee shop asks her to watch his laptop for a moment, Fixie not only agrees, she ends up saving it from certain disaster. To thank her, the computer’s owner, Sebastian, scribbles her an IOU – but of course Fixie never intends to call in the favour.
That is, until her teenage crush, Ryan, comes back into her life and needs her help – and Fixie turns to Seb. But things don’t go according to plan, and now Fixie owes Seb: big time.
Soon the pair are caught up in a series of IOUs – from small favours to life-changing debts – and Fixie is torn between the past she’s used to and the future she deserves.
Does she have the courage to fix things for herself and fight for the life, and love, she really wants?

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
If a stranger asked you to keep an eye on their laptop in a coffee shop you’d say yes, right? When Fixie Farr agrees to guard Sebastian’s possessions they enter a back-and-forth game of cute favours. Sophie Kinsella’s feel-good rom-com introduces us to another of the writer's intriguing and flawed heroines. Fixie is obsessed with repairing everyone and everything and she's always on a quest to make others happy. But can she complete her bumpy journey to grow into a confident businesswoman and discover the love she deserves?
Kinsella (Surprise Me) offers another winning novel, this one revolving around Fixie Farr, the youngest of three siblings, and Farrs, the home-goods store her deceased father created. When Fixie's mother, who's been running their West London store primarily with Fixie over the nine years since her husband's death, visits her sister in Spain for a long overdue vacation, everything goes awry particularly since Fixie has trouble when it comes to facing down her siblings. Oldest brother Jake, dazzled by everything posh, wants to turn the store into an upscale shop of overpriced merchandise, while airheaded Nicole wants to transform it into a yoga destination both oblivious to the store's bottom line. Then Ryan Chalker, Fixie's forever crush who abandoned her to make it big in L.A., returns to the U.K. and keeps upending her life with on-again/off-again promises of a relationship. In the midst of the mayhem, Fixie does a favor for a handsome investment manager named Seb Marlowe, and the IOU he gives her becomes a back-and-forth transaction between them that starts as a flirtation, then becomes more complicated, and finally deepens into something more substantial. Kinsella's reliable mix of humor and spot-on insights into both romantic and familial relationships adds spice as Fixie finally learns to take charge and speak her mind, making this a surefire hit for Kinsella's fans.

Easy reading with likeable characters. I always enjoy Kinsellas book.
Easy Holiday Read
Loved it. Easy reading - great page turner.
Too serious where is the kinsella humour?
I used to always laugh at your books but they’ve lost all comic value and seem to have the same plot line every time. Disappointed again (same with the last). Bring back Becky Bloomwood for some laughs again!
