Rory's Proposal by Lynda Renham

When 29-year-old Flora Robson reversed her car into Tom’s Audi she had no idea who he was. Only after she has started to fall in love with him does she discover the gorgeous blue-eyed Tom is the man who is trying to close down her hairdressing business. It seems that Tom will stop at nothing to get what he wants, but Flora is not giving in to anyone. Can she win the battle against her multimillionaire enemy or will her feelings for him get in the way? Follow Flora’s hilarious journey of love, hot chocolate and marshmallows, and the man who changes everything. 

Flora and Luke have been together for over two years and while everyone around her is moving forward with their relationships theirs seems to be stuck. Flora tries to get Luke to propose, but all of her plans fail miserably. Luke isn't very nice to her and she can never do anything right, but she tries her very best for him. Flora has one wish, she wants to be engaged before she's 30. When her small car hits a big Audi the owner asks her to have a drink with him. His name is Tom and he's gorgeous. Even though she's with Luke, who surely is the love of her life, Flora likes him a lot. Until she finds out who he is. He's the owner of a large chain of supermarkets who are trying to make her sell her salon to them in a dirty way. She doesn't want to lose her business and great location and she's fighting them with everything she has. Unfortunately that also means she has to go up against the man she thought she could fall in love with.
Rory's Proposal is such a funny book. I had to laugh out loud because of Flora's delightful actions and personality. Tom is a perfect gentleman. He's handsome, kind and he adores Flora, but he's also smart and has a wicked sense of humor. I liked reading this novel so much and it cheered me up immensely. There's also sadness, because things don't turn out the way Flora wants, but she's tough and she fights for her ideals. That made her sympathetic and very likable. She isn't perfect, but her imperfections make her such a great woman. The story is well written and original. There's a spectacular scene near the end, which I thought was very clever. I loved how Lynda Renham gave Flora personality by putting her thoughts into words so well. I would recommend this novel to anyone who loves a funny and romantic read. It's great for a long, relaxing evening on the sofa and it's even better when you eat lots of marshmallows and chocolate while reading it.
