    Sweet, comical, and delightfully uplifting!

    I Owe You One is a charming, heartwarming read that takes us into the life of the thoughtful Fixie Farr as she struggles to keep her family’s home goods shop thriving while juggling an on-again/off-again relationship with her high school crush, two overbearing, older siblings, and a back-and-forth IOU with a handsome businessman. The prose is well turned and light. The characters, including all the supporting characters, are unique, amusing and reliable. And the plot is a smart, engaging tale full of quirky mishaps, tricky moments, awkward situations, delicious chemistry, romantic drama, self-reflection, and the intricacies of familial relationships. Overall, I Owe You One is another light, refreshing, entertaining read by Kinsella that's perfect for fans of insightful, witty, contemporary romance novels.

    Kinsella at her best - fun

    A fresh new rom-c0m from British author Sophie Kinsella that left a smile on my face. The Farr Family Household Store has survived the early death of its founder but will it survive the health scare fueled absence of Joanne, mother of Jake, Nicole and 27 Y.O. Fixie when they take over for a few months? Sibling dynamics play out well in this story and at times I wanted to throttle Fixie's "Family First" ideology. Wonderful characters with a potential of a Happy Ever After (HEA) ending. I volunteered to read an ARC through Net Galley. 1 like

    Still the best at what she does

    I have been a fan of Sophie Kinsella’s since first reading the Shopaholic series, and I have remained one all through the years. She is in fact the only Women’s Fiction author constantly on my list, regardless of the book description. I know that I can depend on Ms. Kinsella for excellent writing, stellar dialogues, and stories that will keep me interested. I OWE YOU ONE is, simply put, a perfect character-driven novel: each one a complex entity, unlike any other in Ms. Kinsella’s books, and a story so compelling that I experienced a rollercoaster of emotions, from rage to tears and relief. I was nearly exhausted after the first chapter, but I already cared so much about our heroine, Fixie, that I nothing could have prevented me from reading this extraordinary book, which had me as excited as any great thriller. Many of us will identify with because we don’t always see what is in front of us when we love, don’t we? I can hardly find the right words to express how moved I was in so many different ways. What I can say is that I very, very highly recommend I OWE YOU ONE; it does not get any better than this.

    The premise...

    After a failed business endeavor, Fixie Farr is focused on perserving the memory of her late father through Farrs—her family's all purpose store. Fixie started out as this refreshing character that I instantly admired. She was vulnerable, she was finding herself, and even if she didn't realize it she was the glue that held her family together. But my obsessive Fixie is still hung up on her ex Ryan, so much so that her constant pining after and trying to please him overshadows Sebastian—our true hero. Sebastian is who piqued my interest from the blurb, yet his lack of presence in Fixie's thoughts and in general in the beginning of the novel left me wanting more. More of him and a whole lot less of Ryan. The premise of I Owe You One was enthralling, but the further I delved into the pages I was disappointed with the unfolding of the plot. Yet, the scenes with the Farrs employees, comforting conversations from Fixie's mother, and Fixie's bestfriend's lack of filter were some of the highlights within this novel that kept me devouring one chapter after the next!

    Lovely read!

    I devoured this book while on a vacation and it was hard to put down! I felt a connection to the characters and felt happy while reading it. Would recommend!
