#bookreview – One Hundred Proposals – by Holly Martin

One Hundred ProposalsOne Hundred Proposals by Holly Martin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

One Hundred Proposals is a funny tearjerker that will grip you from the first page. Holly Martin quickly and expertly involves you in the lives of her characters so that you feel their joy, sorrow, confusion and conflict.
The novel tells the story of Suzie and Harry, best friends and partners in their business the.PerfectProposal.com. Harry comes up with a PR stunt to drum up more business and the outcome is hilarious, turbulent, heart-warming and, at times, utterly swoon worthy.
Harry and Suzie jet off around the world and get to visit a bucket list of places that anyone with adventure and love in their heart would be proud of. There are moments in the novel that made me laugh out loud and some that made me break down in tears and I really lived this story with Suzie and Harry.
Holly Martin brings real life issues into the plot so vividly that the reader is swept along with the sometimes painful, but always wonderfully vivid emotions of love, loss and reality.
I loved all of the proposals but my favourite was the first one in New York. I won’t say anymore about this but you’ll have to read it to find out just how incredibly romantic it is.
Suzie is a sweet and adorable character with relatable insecurities and her own recent inescapable grief and Harry is gorgeous, protective, vulnerable raw masculinity at its best. Just phwoar!!!
This line…”It was incredible…touching the past as the future rushed towards us in all its golden splendour.” WOW! This lady can write!
Holly Martin is an author to watch out for because she has a wonderful talent for creating enjoyable reads that tug at the heart strings and characters that you just want to meet up with for coffee.
A perfect summer read!
