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.
I Owe You One
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?
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.
Disclosure: I was sent the book to review by Penguin Random House South Africa. I was not required to write a positive review. This post is in line with my blogging policy.
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.

Maybe I should take a break from crime.. I just found 2 Deon Meyer books in French at Geneva airport yesterday for quite cheap so crime it is for a while.. 😉
I love crime books so it is hard for me to deviate 🙂
This does sound interesting, Tandy.
It was a good read!
