One Hundred Christmas Proposals by Holly Martin

I bought the Kindle edition of this book together with One Hundred Proposals last year as it was on sale on Amazon for only $0.99. I immediately read this after One Hundred Proposals .

Here’s the synopsis from Goodreads:

One Hundred Christmas Proposals coverThe 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.

I extremely enjoyed reading One Hundred Proposals that I expected this book would also have the same effect on me. But since Harry had already proposed to Suzie, what’s in store for them now? This sequel had brought a mixture of sadness and excitement to me. Sad because it’s shorter since it’s a novella, but also excited because Harry and Suzie’s love story continues on! Moreover, it’s Christmas-themed! I just wished I had read this sooner as it might have just livened up my Christmas spirit more.

It was seen here that the PR stunt Harry pulled off was a huge success. As such, they pursued another batch of one hundred proposals set during the Christmas season. The only thing different here was instead of focusing the proposals on Harry and Suzie, it was now the clients’ turn to get the limelight. This different approach done by Holly Martin made the book even more interesting to read. I love how Harry recounted their clients’ proposals through his blog. This allowed readers to get a glimpse of the couples’ love story and how each proposal incorporated one memory or significant object that was meaningful to their relationship. I must say, the proposals were diverse, unique, and memorable. It was also fun to read the reactions of the ladies.

But of course, Holly Martin still centered her story on Harry and Suzie’s relationship. After the proposal in the previous book, Suzie prepared herself for a transition to the next chapter of her life, that is, marriage. I admired how Harry and Suzie’s chemistry remained strong and intact. Likewise, Harry would go extra miles to prove how much he extremely loved Suzie. It was so sweet and definitely swoon-worthy to the point of me hoping someone like Harry would exist in reality and be my guy!

Overall, One Hundred Christmas Proposals did not disappoint. It was a bit predictable, but this did not stop me from enjoying the book. Despite just being a novella, One Hundred Christmas Proposals was a great and satisfying follow-up to One Hundred Proposals. Holly Martin wrote another wonderful, romantic story that will make readers fall in love with love again. Aside from it being a love story, this book also became a significant life-changing moment to Suzie. She definitely grew and matured as a person, as she was able to improve and strengthen her relationship not just with Harry, but with her family and friends. And best of all, I believed the 100th Christmas proposal deserved its position as the priceless closing scene of the book. Holly Martin surely knows how to make an emotional ending that will leave readers craving for more. Nuff said.
