I Owe You One opening line: The trouble with me is, I can’t let things go.
Fixie has grown up with a few mottos and quirks. Family first is the main one, and it leads to her asking a favour she should not really ask for. That one thing leads to the end of her relationship with a man she really cares about. And it is the one thing Fixie does not know how to fix.

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?
I read this book in a day! It was an easy read, with an obvious ending. This novel by Sophie Kinsella was well written and a real page turner.
Dave and I are flying back from France today. We will be back at work tomorrow and I will reply to comments then. You can see what we did in France by taking a look at our holiday blog.
