A Perfect Proposal – Katie Fforde. Sophie Apperly is young, attractive, practical, domestic & totally unappreciated by her academic family. Following on from the recent Katie Fforde thead, I have just finished reading my free copy of her new book ‘A Perfect Proposal’. (Thanks Charlotte!). Fforde’s latest is a rambling, bighearted novel in which a young Londoner becomes entangled with a wealthy American family.

He is suspicious of Sophie he doesn’t trust her when it comes to his grandma and his suspicions are only made worse when Sophie agrees to help find the old Cornish house that Matilda stayed in when she was younger back in England. We feel for her because her family takes her for granted and think her a little daft, and who amongst pfoposal can’t relate to that?


Sophie’s Great Uncle Eric has a reputation for being miserable and mean but really has a heart of gold which Sophie soon discovers.

Katie usually writes such wonderful men, but this one was way off the mark for me. She takes to Sophie right then and there to the dismay of her judgmental lawyer grandson Luke.

As they’re published mid-year I suppose that makes them perfect for the UK summer. What was it about Luke that caused her fall in love with him?? It is sprinkled with a bit too much sugar and implausibility and is almost ridiculously light but it works.
