Review - Adventurous Proposal by Laura Barnard


After a string of bad dates, Florence Gray is so over online dating. So much so, that if she has to survive another guy standing her up she might just do something crazy ... like accept the first proposal she gets.

So when she finds herself alone in the bar, again, Florence can hardly believe her eyes-or ears-when Hugh Humphreys swoops in and presents her with an proposal so adventurous she can't believe she's actually considering saying yes.

Because, after all, twenty five days to plan a wedding is some feat and that’s while getting to know your fiancĂ©e, their disapproving Mother and dealing with a jealous ex. Throw in the small matter of where they should live and you have Florence wondering what the hell she's gotten herself into.

Can you really countdown to a wedding like an advent calendar? Fall in love with a stranger and make them your husband?

Because if she's going to make it down the aisle Christmas morning, Florence has to find out and fast.

Laura Barnard 
Author Bio

Laura Barnard lives in Hertfordshire, UK and writes romantic comedy or 'chick lit' as its so often described. In her spare time she enjoys drinking her body weight in tea, indulging in cupcakes the size of her face and drooling over hunks like Jamie Dornan, Ryan Gosling and Leo Dicaprio.

She enjoys wearing yoga pants and reading fitness magazines while sitting on the sofa eating chocolate. She's a real fan of the power nap, loves setting her friends up together and of course READING!

She writes not to get rich or famous, but because she LOVES writing. Even if one person tells her they enjoyed her book it makes the midnight typing worth it!


My Review:

I thought the premise was fun and I loved Florence and Hugh's first meeting. I was definitely interested to see where things would go from there.

The story moves quickly and there are no slow parts at all. The part where the in laws meet really stands out. It was both horrific and entertaining in equal measures!

Even though it's a novella the story works brilliantly. The characters are developed well with both Hugh and Florence sharing lots of red hot chemistry. 

If you are looking for a light hearted story then get yourself comfy and enjoy!

Five stars from me!

Thank you to Laura Barnard for kindly sending me a copy.  This is my honest and unbiased opinion.
