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....

"Definitely a Treat!"
Sophie the main character is immensely likeable,capable and young. There is also a very endearing great uncle called Eric, I thought Jilly Bond was particularly good at doing his voice. Although it is generally well narrated, it is especially good on all the accents too. A Perfect proposal is a rocky road to love and certainly up to Katie Fforde's usual high standards. And although not quite as' perfect' as the title would suggest, this one is definitely a treat!
Enjoyed this a lot. The storyline wasn't entirely original but the characters were well written and took me along for he ride
