The Wedding Proposal by Sue Moorcroft


Blurb: 


Can a runaway bride stop running?
Elle Jamieson is an unusually private person, in relationships as well as at work – and for good reason. But when she’s made redundant, with no ties to hold her, Elle heads off to a new life in sunny Malta.
Lucas Rose hates secrets – he prides himself on his ability to lay his cards on the table and he expects nothing less from others. He’s furious when his summer working as a divemaster is interrupted by the arrival of Elle, his ex, all thanks to his Uncle Simon’s misguided attempts at matchmaking.
Forced to live in close proximity, it’s hard to ignore what they had shared before Lucas’s wedding proposal ended everything they had. But then an unexpected phone call from England allows Lucas a rare glimpse of the true Elle. Can he deal with Elle’s hidden past when it finally comes to light?

                     
Thank you to Choc Lit for sending me a copy to review.

My Thoughts: 


After being made redundant and with no relationship holding her to her current life, Elle decides it is time for a complete change. 
So she sets about throwing away her sensible suits and waving goodbye to the rigid routine she is used to.
With the old Elle firmly cast aside, the new Elle embarks on a new life in Malta....

Sue Moorcroft has done it again!
The Wedding Proposal is impossible to put down and utterly spellbinding.

Moorcroft has a gift for creating wonderful characters and this book is no exception.

Elle our lead character is lovely and I found myself loving her instantly.
She has such a caring and hard working nature and is naturally beautiful.

Simon is Elle's best friend, the man who changed her life around by getting her the job in Malta and showing her how incredible it is to volunteer. 
He is truly generous and it's obvious that he just wants what's best for Elle.

Joseph is the guy that runs the centre Elle volunteers at, he is a friendly but firm person and it's evident from the beginning that he will help Elle.

But for all these good characters we were bound to meet a bad one and he comes in the form of creepy Oscar.

Packaged within this beautiful cover is a story that will pull you in and leave you dreaming!
