Publisher's Summary

Sophie Apperly has spent her whole life pleasing others - but when she realises her family see her less as indispensable treasure and more as general dogsbody, she decides she's had enough. So when an old friend offers her the chance of a lifetime, she decides to swap Little England for the Big Apple, and heads off to the land of opportunity.

From the moment Sophie hits the bright lights of Manhattan she's determined to enjoy every minute of her big adventure. And when fate throws her together with Matilda, a spirited grande dame of New York society who invites her to Connecticut for Thanksgiving, she willingly accepts.

English-born Matilda is delighted with her new friend - though her grandson Luke, undeniably attractive but infuriatingly arrogant, is anything but welcoming. When Luke arrives in England a few weeks later, Sophie hardly expects him to seek her out. But Matilda has hatched some complicated plans of her own - and so Luke has a proposal to make....

    Story
    "Extremely Enjoyable"

    very much enjoyed this story and narration. From the beginning it kept me interested and it is very easy to follow with a good flow.

    Although in no way a suspense story, I kept wondering what would happen next and seeing the friendship grow between the 2 main characters was very heart warming.

    I'd definitely recommend this story to anyone who enjoys good quality "Chit-lit"

    "Dissapointing that it ended"

    I really enjoyed this book, the story was lovely and the characters endearing, but what really made it for me was Jilly Bond's narration - it was fantastic!!

    The ultimate multi-tasking is to read a book while driving

    Story
    "Not Austen, but great fun!"
    Would you listen to A Perfect Proposal again? Why?

    This book is like a bowl of ice cream on a summer's day - not the greatest or most nutritional meal, but enjoyable and refreshing. Fforde does not write books that will appear on high school syllabuses, but they are great fun.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sophie is a great character, likable and warm.


    What about Jilly Bond’s performance did you like?

    Terrific - faultless.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Love will find you


    Any additional comments?

    If you enjoyed watching 'Love Actually' or 'Bridget Jones's Diary' and need something light and enjoyable, that is well-read, this is the book for you.

    Story
    "It was alright"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    It wasn't bad - I wouldn't not recommend it. I can't say that I loved it though. The story was entertaining enough but it just seemed to go on without building up to anything, and the end seemed a bit tacked on. I would listen to it again - in a year or so, if I was really bored and had heard all my other books again. Well, the good ones, anyway.
