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....

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"

I wish this was a better story. Disappointing.
Would you try another book written by Katie Fforde or narrated by Jilly Bond?
Jilly Bond's narration sounds like an old fashioned little girl. I found it really hard to like any of the characters when they spoke in a silly high pitched voice. I am afraid the American accents were dire, and at one point Luke turned from a dubious American to a fully fledged Cornishman. Sorry Jilly, but I can't put myself through listening to another book narrated by you...
Katie Fforde has also let me down and I could cry! She has been one of my favourite authors for a long time but this book was terrible. I didn't identify with the stuffy and old fashioned characters, Sophie would have better placed in a Jane Austin novel rather than present day England / America, and why does she like Luke? It's beyond me.
Has A Perfect Proposal put you off other books in this genre?
No, it is after all churned out chick lit and a certain amount of predictability is par for the course.
Would you be willing to try another one of Jilly Bond’s performances?
You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?
I'm struggling to think of any. I'm afraid Luke reminded me a little of Christian Gray from a certain well known trilogy (which is absolutely not a good thing!) but terribly one dimensional and boring.
Any additional comments?
Writing this review is done with a heavy heart as I usually love Katie Fforde books. This one has let her down I feel. Sorry Katie.
