Product description

About the Author

Coming from two generations of journalists, writing was in Fiona Harper’s genes. As a child she was constantly teased for having her nose in a book and living in a dream world. Things haven't changed much since then, but at least in writing she's found a use for her runaway imagination! She loves dancing, cooking, reading and watching a good romance. Fiona lives in London with her family. Visit her website at: www.fionaharper.com

This is the first full length novel that I have read by Fiona Harper, having discovered her through a short story. I picked up the novel for a bargain price and enjoyed reading it.

For me it wasn't a real page turner, until possibly towards the end when I really wanted to know how everything was going to work out. I found the story a bit slow going to start with, but once there was more interaction between Nicole and Alex it felt like Ms Harper got into her stride and the book picked up pace.

The author did a good job of portraying the characters and I could clearly see every one. The love triangle aspect was also well done. All credit to Fiona Harper for that, as writers seem to often struggle to pull off that particular situation. There was actually quite a lot in the book as the three main characters looked inside themselves, grew and developed. They behaved like real people as well, and there were none of the unbelievable scenarios and plot devices that many romance authors seem to employ on an annoyingly regular basis.

The story was fun, sweet and romantic with no sex and bad language. Again, all credit to Ms Harper for showing that stories like that can still be written and enjoyed.

Nicole Harrison and her two friends have decided to embark on a new business venture.
They are going to plan wedding proposals, the three friends will arrange everything, noting the small details and making sure they know their couples likes and dislikes!
With a socialite client and a hot blast from the past, the girls set about making The Little Shop of Hopes and Dreams a success!

I loved everything about this story, from the gorgeous cover that entices the reader within to the characters that pull the reader along the pages.

Nicole is a wonderfully thoughtful character, it is such a shame that she lacks confidence in herself.
I loved the humorous element that Nicole lends to the story.

Then we have the incredibly irriestable Mr Alex Black *swoons*, now this is a guy who works hard and knows what he wants.
Honesty is extremely important to Alex and a trait that he values in everyone he meets.

Told through dual narratives Fiona Harper really does allow you to catch the thoughts and feelings of her lead protagonists and for me, this added to the story for me.

With promises of Hopes and Dreams in the title, Fiona Harper doesn't dissapoint in the delivery of a story that will warm you heart.

The Little Shop of Hopes and Dreams, Fiona Harper
Review from jeannie zelos book reviews
This is the third book I’ve read about a business dealing with wedding/marriage proposals, and each one has started from the same point and gone in very different directions. That’s what is so great, how authors have such different ideas about stories, even if the brief is the same. I’ve been to art classes where 12 people will follow a step by step painting and yet produce 12 very different works at the end. Originality always comes through.
So, poor Nicole, her business really needs this  latest job if its to survive, but then she meets the man who’s about to get proposed to...and finds out he’s the new years dream kiss mystery man. That wouldn’t matter so much, he wasn’t going out with this lady then but – wow – the attraction is still there on Nicole’s side, and she’s determined not to let it show. Fate and Alex though seem to have other plans. I love Nicole, she’s been hurt in the past by a jerk who she’d dated for two years, then just when she thought they were on the brink of getting engaged he dropped the bombshell and dumped her, looking for someone who fit the social grouping he’s in...grrr...that must have been devastating, especially as she’s worked so hard on herself to fit in with others. A real blow to her confidence and since then she’s avoided dating and focussed on her business.
Alex, wow – what a heartthrob. He’s not only a good looking guy but a decent one, and though he feels a pull to Nicole he tells himself its not really there, that he’s with Saffron and he’s just helping Nicole with her magazine article by letting her work with him for another full day.

Format: Paperback
Nicole Harrison is a proposal planner - people come to her for help when they want to propose to their loved one and she plans that proposal right down to the tiniest detail so that special moment is one to remember. It is a new business and struggling until the day that Saffron hires her to arrange her proposal. Saffron is an "it" girl, darling of the media and this job could be the one that propels Nicole into the big time. That is, until she realises that Alex, the man Saffron intends proposing to is that gorgeous hunk that she snogged last New Year's Eve and still can't get out of her head. And it seems, the feeling is mutual.

As is the way, instead of backing away, Nicole bumbles her way through the assignment and things start to heat up between her and Alex in a story that is very reminiscent of Paige Toon's Thirteen Weddings. I admit I got quite exasperated with Nicole at times. I kept wanting to shake her and remind her of "solidarity between sisters" as I did feel some sympathy towards Saffron who seemed destined to end up publicly humiliated with egg on her face.

It is a nice, cosy, easy to read story that you don't have to think about, being comfortably predictable. You know how it is all going to end up, although you are pretty much hooked wondering how it can all get sorted out amicably as Nicole just digs a hole for herself that gets deeper and deeper. Many thanks to the publisher for the review copy.
