Fixie Farr has always lived by her father’s motto: “Family first.” But 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 is simply not in her nature to say no to people.

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 a certain disaster. Turns out the computer’s owner, Sebastian is an investment manager. To thank Fixie for her quick thinking, Seb scribbles an IOU on a coffee sleeve and attaches his business card. But Fixie laughs it off – she’d never actually claim an IOU from a stranger. Would she?

Then Fixie’s childhood crush, Ryan comes back into her life and his lack of a profession pushes all of Fixie’s buttons. She wants nothing for herself- but she’d love Seb to give Ryan a job. So Seb agrees, until the tables are turned once more and a new series of IOUs between Seb and Fixie – from small favors to life-changing moments. 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?

I give this book a rating of 5 stars and I highly recommend reading it. As soon as I saw this book, I knew I had to read it! Sophie Kinsella is one of my favourite authors and this book is just as addicting as all of the others. I really liked the story line and about half of the characters. The book was so hard to put down and I felt so many emotions throughout the book. Everything came together really well and I can’t wait to read more from Sophie Kinsella.
