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 a 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 fiancé, 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.
Claire's Review 5 of 5 Stars
I had wanted to read a book by Laura Barnard for a long time, and when she was announced as an author for the Four Brits Book Fest 2017 it was the perfect excuse to fit on in! I began with The Debt and the Doormat (Which was amazing! and I highly recommend) and when the opportunity arose to read Adventurous Proposal, I jumped at the chance!
This book is the story of Florence, who after being stood up by her Tinder date, meets Hugh at the bar and after a crazy evening agrees to marry him....on Christmas Day.....in 23 days time.
I loved this book! it had a bit of everything... humour, romance, times when you doubted whether it would be Flo's happy ever after, and of course it's the perfect Christmas read as well!
This book is perfect for snuggling up with under a blanket with a hot chocolate and devouring!
