Having read The Beach House, it was great to revisit two of the characters who first appeared in that book in this short story.

Matt and Clare have a great relationship but is he putting it in jeopardy in his quest for the "perfect" proposal? I loved both of the characters and could empathise with each of them. It is quite a quick read but the plot works well and leaves you guessing right until the end.

All in all a cute little story with a few laughs and a good moral to the story.

An very enjoyable story. A quick read but long enough to get involved in the plot.
