A Perfect Proposal by Katie Fforde
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
After seeing Katie Fforde at the RNA conference, and hearing her story about how she 'found' writing - and being able to relate to it - I really wanted to read one of her books. I'd bought this one ages ago, and so picked it up upon my return.
Katie Fforde has a wonderful, light style of writing that will give you the laugh out loud moments or the lump in the throat, keeping you reading. When her hero and heroine finally meet I never wanted to put the book down - only as usual, the kids needed feeding and real life wanted to get in the way.
There is a nice level of sub-plot interwoven to keep these two characters' paths crossing, and other characters which help show Sophie's character and what she is about. It's a little Cinderella story, meeting her prince charming, and the (fairy) Grandmother.
There isn't any 'sex on the page' really, yet the chemistry between Luke and Sophie is spellbinding. I really liked the dialogue between these two; witty, charming and sharp.
I think Katie's style is similar to mine (although she's ten times better!) and so I am going to have to read more Katie Fforde books ... for research purposes of course!
Oh, what a shame.
