One Hundred Christmas Proposals by Holly Martin

"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….

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."

This was a super quick novella of 100 pages that I devoured in almost an instant.  It is set in the lead up to Christmas ending on New Years Eve, and features all sorts of romantic proposals and follows Harry and Suz as they prepare for Christmas amongst all the proposal chaos.

I had not read One Hundred Proposals and found myself wishing I had before I embarked on this novella buy, although it isn't a necessity, I think you would feel more invested in the story as you would be dying to see what had happened to the main characters.  I found this novella was too short for me to really adore or fall in love with anyone but had I read the main book first, I am sure I would have fallen in love!  This certainly hasn't put me off though (and doesn't mean I doesn't enjoy it!); I shall be getting myself a copy of One Hundred Proposals and reading the books the wrong way round.

I have to admit I caught on to what was going to happen fairly early on, so it was not a total mystery to me but it was an extremely sweet romantic festive fairy tale.  The only downside for me was I felt that it ended too soon, and I would have loved to have seen it end with a blog post of the "final proposal".

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher Carina for the copy in return for my honest review.
