  • Vintage Katie Fforde romance - loved it

    Sophie Apperley is her family's dogs-body. Looked down on for neither being intellectual nor artistic, she 'merel' cooks, cleans and generally looks after her father, mother and brother whilst also holding down a number of odd jobs (mainly waitressing and bar work), helping out others less fortunate and designing/altering clothes in her spare time. Forced by her mercenary family to look after an elderly relative known colloquially as Evil Uncle Eric, she finds he is actually quite nice (and probably only evil to family members trying to scrounge money) and he tells her about a family oil well which might produce an income if 'someone' could ever unite all the shares and get someone interested in drilling for oil. Years ago a female relative in New York tried to do just that but Uncle Eric doesn't know whether she succeeded. Coincidentally, one of Sophie's friends who works at an art gallery in New York gets her a temporary job as a nanny. At an art show Sophie helps an elderly lady who is about to faint, the elderly woman, Matilda, turns out to be fabulously wealthy, befriends Sophie and invites her to spend Thanksgiving with her and her family at her mansion in Connecticut. The only fly in the ointment is Matilda's grandson Luke who seems determined to believe that Sophie is somehow trying to extort money from his grandmother. From the Cotswolds to New York to Connecticut to Cornwall, Sophie and Luke bicker incessantly - but is there more to their relationship than meets the eye? This is exactly what I want from a Katie Fforde novel, an artistic, caring heroine, a wealthy hero, lovely houses and eccentric relatives.

  • A Perfect Proposal

    An amazing read. Completely worth your time/money. I would reccomend it for teenagers and up. Younger even if you like a sophisticated, long amd enjoyable read. The ending in these types of books are evident, but personally it is not the ending that matters, it is how the characters get there that does. The title could be better, but again, really worth it. There are only 1/2 sware words throughout the whole book, but it does say sex/make love several times. You can decide for yourself if that makes a difference to you, but it really doesn't take anything away from the novel. I would not reccomend reading this if you have JUST read another of Katie Fford's books similar to this one. Although each book has its own story line and characters, you can see the pattern. But seriously, if you have bothered to read this far, then please read this book if you like the sound of the blurb/synopsis. Take my word for it, after all, if you do, the worst that could happen is that you do not like the book after all. If that's enough to do some kind of damage to you, then you need to see someone! ;) Happy reading!! <3

    Thanks for your feedback!
