Quick Book Review: A Perfect Proposal by Katie Fforde

A Perfect Proposal by Katie FfordeAnother fun book by one of my favorite chick-lit writers.

Sophie Apperly is the Cinderella of her family and they’re happy to send her off to care for their grumpy great uncle Eric for a while, hoping they’ll all share in his inheritance. She actually gets on really well with the old man and when she tells him she’s off to New York for a temporary job, he asks her to look up another family member who could help them all to a lot of money.

In New York, she meets Matilda, an old and very rich lady, that she happens to run into at an art gallery. She has a dashing grandson, Luke, who is very suspicious of Sophie, assuming she is friendly with his grandmother for her money.

Luke promises to search her family member in the USA while Sophie is on a quest for Matilda back in England. Turns out Matilda has some plans that neither Sophie nor Luke expected…

This is a fun and predictable story. I had some idea which way this story would go but not how it would get there. And it was a great, quick read that took the reader from England to New York, to Connecticut and back to England, to the lovely Cornwall countryside.

A fun, light read. I flew through the 400 pages!
