Poppy Dunbar is out on her hen night when she meets Tom Kennedy. With his dark eyes and quirky smile, he could lure any girl off the straight and narrow, but what really draws Poppy to him is the feeling that she's know him all her life. She can't go through with the meeting they arrange but she can't go through with her wedding either.
Poppy Dunbar is wearing a hat with three condoms hanging from it. It's her bachelorette party. She's getting married the next morning to a wonderful man. She'll get the 2.5 kids, picket fence and everything else she's always dreamed of. But then, Poppy falls down the stairs when she leaves the pub for a few minutes of fresh air. But when he helps her to a bench because of a twisted ankle, her whole life changes when she gazes into his eyes. Instant attraction, love at first site. His name is Tom and he urges Poppy to meet him at a coffee house after her party. He knows she feels the same way, but if she doesn't show up, he'll know she wasn't interested.
Poppy does go to the coffee house, but she doesn't go in. She can't meet with Tom, but she now knows she can't get married in the morning to Rob either. She just doesn't love him like she should. Poppy breaks off the wedding at the last hour and finds out at the same time that her father isn't really her father. She moves to London; to start a new life, to find her real father, and maybe find Tom.
She meets and makes unpredictable new friends. She finds a room with famous artist Caspar French, who also has a room lent out to Claudia, who is the daughter of two famous movie stars. Claudia is looking for love, Caspar is always double booking his lady friends, and Poppy is just trying to make the rent. But as life unfolds, Poppy finds that she must listen to her heart to find her future.
