NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
  • "A gem of a novel."—Jodi Picoult, #1 New York Times bestselling author of A Spark of Light and Small Great ThingsFrom 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?Praise for I Owe You One"This book is a shot of pure joy!"—Jenny Colgan, author of The Bookshop on the Corner "A humorous exploration of family life, finding love and the difficulties of coming into one's own as a young professional woman . . . The entertaining cast of characters . . . will certainly remind readers why nineteen years after her first hit Kinsella remains one of the reigning queens of women's fiction."The Washington Post "I Owe You One is another impossibly delightful story by Sophie Kinsella, a must-read for her die-hard fans and new readers alike."PopSugar

          December 15, 2018
          An IOU from a cute stranger gets complicated in this fun story about family, loyalty, and taking charge of your own life.Fixie Farr, as her nickname suggests, has always loved to fix things. Most of her fixing is confined to her family's West London store, Farr's, which she's run with her mother since her father's death. Her siblings, Jake and Nicole, are mostly useless, and Fixie knows it's up to her to protect her dad's legacy. When she's at a coffee shop one day, a man asks her to watch his laptop. While he's away, the ceiling above his table caves in, and Fixie can't stop herself from leaping into danger to save the computer. Shocked by her willingness to save the day at the risk of her own safety, the laptop's owner, Seb, promises her a favor and writes an IOU on a coffee sleeve. Fixie never intends to cash in the favor--after all, she doesn't know Seb at all, and she's perfectly capable of handling everything herself--until the love of her life, Ryan, needs a job. Ryan was Jake's best friend growing up, and Fixie's had an enormous crush on him her whole life, even after he moved to LA to become a movie producer. But now he's back in London, and she wants him to stay...so she musters up the courage to contact Seb and redeem the IOU for a job for Ryan. However, it turns out that she and Seb aren't quite done with each other, and they keep finding more opportunities to owe each other favors. As Fixie tries to work out her feelings for Seb, assert herself to her siblings, and save her family's store, will she finally be able to stop fixing other people's lives and start focusing on her own? Kinsella (Surprise Me, 2018, etc.) creates a charming story full of quirky characters and laugh-out-loud dialogue. Fixie is a likable character, one readers will root for as she learns to take control of her own life.Kinsella's many fans will devour this warm and hilarious read.
