Book Review: One Hundred Christmas Proposals, by Holly Martin

The eagerly anticipated follow-up to One Hundred Proposals…

One Hundred Christmas Proposals

If you thought Harry & Suzie’s life couldn’t get anymore sweepingly romantic than Harry asking her to marry him at the end of One Hundred Proposals – think again!

It’s Christmas in a snow-kissed London, and have vowed to carry out one hundred proposals in December. No easy task at the best of times – made even more complicated by Harry & Suzie trying to plan their first Christmas and a visit from the dreaded in-laws. But one hundred deliciously Christmassy proposals later they find themselves asking if everything is still perfect in their own relationship….

Welcome back to the divinely warm world of One Hundred Proposals – with a sprinkling of pure, joyful, festive magic.

Have yourself a very merry Christmas indeed with Holly Martin’s Christmas novella.


If you’ve read my review of One Hundred Proposals, you’ll know I’m a huge fan, so I was super excited for this Christmas follow-up.

Well, let me tell you, it did not disappoint! In fact, it had me in a bit of a snivelling mess by the end, it was so damn beautiful, but we’ll get there in a bit.

I fell head over heels for Harry and Suzie in the first book; they’re both such wonderful, lovable characters and the story was so sweet and romantic, so the bar really was set high for this sequel, and Holly has continued the story perfectly.

Their business is thriving following the success of their one hundred proposals stunt, and now Harry and Suzie have their hands full planning one hundred more proposals throughout the month of December. There’s some beautiful proposals being planned, and romance is over flowing, but their own wedding seems to be a bit forgotten about, and Suzie is starting to worry. She knows they’ve been busy, but after putting so much effort into the perfect proposal, why isn’t Harry eager to actually plan the wedding?

They’re both under a lot of stress to with everything they’ve got going on, and are forced to question how perfect their relationship really is. I feel so strongly attached to these characters, I just couldn’t bear the idea of things going wrong for them, so Holly really has done a fantastic job of pulling the reader into the story.

I was happy to catch up with other familiar faces such as Jules and Badger, as well as new additions such as Suzie’s parents – her sweet father and snobbish mother both added some great new levels to the story. I also loved that Harry’s blog was included again.

And lastly: that ending. Just perfection. It was beautiful, and it made me a mess. This one whole-heartedly gets five pretty penguins from me.
