Book Review: One Hundred Proposals, by Holly Martin

One hundred proposals, one hundred chances to say yes.

one hundred proposals

‘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…



Okay, just had to get that off my chest. Seriously though, I do.

This book is just gorgeous. GORGEOUS.

Bets friends Harry and Suzie run a proposal planning company, and have the sweetest friendship you can imagine. Harry makes it his mission to discover The Perfect Proposal, with a run of 100 proposals in 100 days. This would all be fine and dandy and rather sweet, if Suzie wasn’t head over heels in love with Harry, who was torturing her with the fake proposals she can never say yes to. Cue heartbreak.

Suzie is so lovable and sweet, prancing around in her cow onesie; I wanted her to be my best friend. And, oh! how my heart ached for her. She really is going through torture. Harry, on the other hand? He is hot! And sweet, and lovely and caring and, eurgh, just so dreamy…okay, yeah, I’m feeling a little obsessive about him. Read it: you’ll understand.

What unfurls is a wonderfully original story, full of so many unique and beautiful moments. I pretty much had a smile plastered on my face through most of this book, it’s just so lovely. There’s a fabulous twist that puts the reader one step ahead of the game (I love it when that happens!!) and it was simply impossible not to get wrapped up in this story.

One Hundred Proposals has firmly claimed a place as one of my favourite books; for me, it is every thing that chick lit should be! Please, if you love chick lit like me: read this book. You will not be disappointed.

5 huge, big, gushy stars for Holly Martin and her wonderful book – I can’t wait to get my hand on the sequel!
