The eagerly anticipated follow-up to One Hundred 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….

The Review

As you know I got sidetracked with my christmas TBR list and this was one of them.

I got a copy of this  a while ago but never got round to reading it and so this TBR list seemed like the perfect opportunity. I never read one hundred proposals, it was only as I started it that I realized it was a followup to the original book. It was fine though although I think if you are able to read One Hundred proposals before this and you will enjoy it a lot more.

The book picks up after Harry and Suzie are back from their round the world trip and it seems Harry can’t keep his hands off Suzie. Everything seems really perfect and after Harry’s elaborate 100 proposals they are running a service and a blog that helps couples creat the perfect proposal. And just to make it fun they were running a competition over the Christmas period to reach the milestone of 100 christmas proposals. The one on the last day of the year is one that Hannah is managing all on her as the client has given her full creative permission. Hannah is determined to make this one the most perfect proposal. And everything is going great but she also notices that Harry is acting strange, disappearing off at odd times. She knows he is keeping something from her but has no idea what it could be.

What did I like? To be honest the story was so very predictable. I knew where it was all heading even before I got half way. I loved how Suzie and Harry celebrated their Christmas. It just shows that when you love someone you want nothing more than to make them happy. Suzie’s mum was a prize though, but I have a mum that is the same so I just laughed after a while.

I loved the ending, it was just so special and I liked the way everyone shipped in to make everything come together. Real friends are the best not just once a year but all year round!
