Review: The Guestbook – Holly Martin

Welcome to my review of The Guestbook by Holly Martin, let me first start off to say that I’ve never really experienced a writing style like this and I quite enjoyed it. Of course you could see this as a sort of diary, but it actually read as a guestbook you would find at a sweet and lovely cottage.
But I am moving forward way too fast, let me first introduce you to this lovely book.

Guestbook Welcome to Willow Cottage – throw open the shutters, let in the sea breeze and make yourself completely at home. Oh, and please do leave a comment in the Guestbook! As landlady of Willow Cottage, the young widow Annie Butterworth is always on hand with tea, sympathy or strong Norfolk cider – whatever her colourful array of guests require. A flick through the messages in the leather-bound cottage guestbook gives a tantalizing glimpse into the lives of everyone who passes through her doors. This includes Annie herself – especially now celebrity crime writer Oliver Black, is back in town. He might grace the covers of gossip magazines with a different glamorous supermodel draped on his arm every week, but to Annie, he’s always just been Olly, the man who Annie shared her first kiss with. Through the pages of the Guestbook Annie and Olly, along with all the guests that arrive at the seaside retreat, struggle with love, loss, mystery, joy, happiness, guilt…and the odd spot of naked rambling! Forget sending postcards saying wish you were here – one visit to Willow Cottage and you’ll wish you could stay forever.

Review: One Hundred Proposals – Holly Martin

My first book this year I can add to the Best Summer Reads of all times! If you are looking for a lovely, fun, light-hearted, flirty and romantic summer read, then you definitely should add this book to your collection. I already know that I will read this book for long summer years to come!

One Hundred Proposals – Holly Martin

one hundred proposals ‘Is there really such a thing as a perfect proposal?
Over the next hundred days I intend to find out. I will find one hundred ways to propose to our Chief Proposer Suzie McKenzie and post the results here for your enjoyment. One thing’s for sure, not one of my proposals will be on top of the Eiffel Tower with a dozen red roses.’

Best friends Suzie and Harry are partners in romance. That is, they run the.PerfectProposal.com, coming to the aid of would-be grooms to create the ultimate marriage proposal.

But when Harry decides to catapult the business into the big leagues with a PR stunt all Suzie can see is a hundred days of heartbreak stretching ahead of her. But however exotic the location, or breath-takingly romantic the setting, Suzie has to keep remembering that ‘Marry Me?’ is the one question she can’t say yes to.

This business proposal should come with one hundred broken heart warnings…

One hundred proposals, one hundred chances to say yes.
