A Perfect Proposal is a fictional romance book by Author Katie Fforde. The book was released in the United Kingdom in March 2010 and so is fairly recent. The book is four hundred pages long. You can buy your copy from Amazon for just £3.41 which I think is good value for money.
Plot: Sophie's family take her for granted. So when her best friend Milly offers her a trip of a lifetime to New York, she can't resist. So, off she goes to New York. Whilst there, she meets an old lady called Matilda who happens to invite her to Connecticut for Thanksgiving. Suprising to Matilda's 'hot' grandson Luke, Sophie accepts the old lady's offer. But Luke is curious as to why Sophie wants to become friends with his elderly grandmother. He soon realises that she is genuine, and so wants to help her save her family from financial ruin. But what will he want in return? Read A Perfect Proposal to find out!
I had never heard of the author Katie Fforde until now, and so I had no idea what this book would be like. My favourite authors include Lindsey Kelk (I Heart New York, I Heart Hollywood, I Heart Paris) and Paige Toon (Johnny Be Good, Pictures of Lily, Lucy In The Sky), and so I was hoping that this book would be on the same wavelength as the ones I have mentioned above.
This book is a really good read! It is a light and fluffy read, which is very hard to put down. It is a real page turner, and liked the fact that despite it was written by an older lady (rather than the twenty-something authors you get these days), I was impressed by how up-to-date it was, especially with the mentions of twitter and so on.
I liked the main character Sophie, as I thought that she was down to earth, and so I think that a lot of readers will be able to relate to her. I felt as though I really got to know the character, and felt really sorry for her.
One thing which I liked about this book was the way that it was written. The language used was very easy to understand, which I thought was good, because it means that it is a great book to read whilst chilling out on the beach or by the pool as it does not require much thinking. I liked the short sentences as I can't bare books with long complicated sentences, so this book was good in that respect.
Apparently this book isn't as good as the rest as this author's other books, although I really enjoyed this book, and as I have not read Katie Fforde's other books, I cannot compare them. However, after this great read, I will definately reading more of this author's books.
If you like chick-lit books, then I think that you will love this book! Thanks for reading! March 13th 2011 xdonzx (also posted under xd-o-n-z-x on dooyoo)
