Review - One Hundred Proposals by Holly Martin

‘Is there really such a thing as a perfect proposal?
Over the next hundred days I intend to find out. I will find one hundred ways to propose to our Chief Proposer Suzie McKenzie and post the results here for your enjoyment. One thing’s for sure, not one of my proposals will be on top of the Eiffel Tower with a dozen red roses.’
Best friends Suzie and Harry are partners in romance. That is, they run, coming to the aid of would-be grooms to create the ultimate marriage proposal.
But when Harry decides to catapult the business into the big leagues with a PR stunt all Suzie can see is a hundred days of heartbreak stretching ahead of her. But however exotic the location, or breath-takingly romantic the setting, Suzie has to keep remembering that ‘Marry Me?’ is the one question she can’t say yes to.
This business proposal should come with one hundred broken heart warnings...
One hundred proposals, one hundred chances to say yes.
So, what did I think? 

I absolutely adored this book. I loved the plot, loved the characters, and the ending couldn't have been more perfect in my eyes! I had tears streaming down my face, tears of complete happiness! 

Holly's writing style is just delightful. The story flows so well and I could not bear to be parted from this book for more than a few minutes at a time.  When it finished, I felt like I was losing my best friends! Left me with such a warm, loving, happy fuzzy feeling, giving me hope and romance back in my life when I'm a bit of a cynical old bag at times (my friends will confirm that!)

I've never been married. Come very close a couple of times but certainly never got a proposal like any of these in the book. I do now however, blame Holly Martin for raising my expectations of not only the perfect man but of the perfect proposal too! 

I think this is one of the most romantic books I've EVER read! Just gorgeous!
