The Proposal by Becky Wade Review

Hello Everyone :)

Thanks so much for joining me today on the Preppy Book Princess.

I recently finally got to read a novella from one of my all time favorite series, The Porter Family series by Becky Wade.

And today I'd like to share with you all my thoughts and opinions on it.

The Proposal by Becky Wade

Source: Free Kindle Read

Publication Date: December 4th, 2015

Genre: Inspirational Fiction


A cold night in Texas, a dream of marriage, a happily ever after....

Single mom Amber Richardson spends every holiday season working to give her young son the best Christmas possible and striving to ignore the empty chairs around her table, chairs she wishes her mother and father and extended family occupied. 

She'd hoped that this holiday would be fuller and happier than the rest. Her handsome firefighter boyfriend, Will McGrath, has brought immeasurable joy and love into her life. Up until recently, they'd even been talking about a future that included wedding bells. Lately, though, the wedding talk has been nonexistent and Amber can’t help but worry that Will's starting to have second thoughts.... 

Until a fire station surprise brings very good tidings.

My Review:

The Proposal is a fairly short novella about two of the side character's from Becky's Porter Family series, Amber and Will. Amber is a character that was introduced in the first book, and I'd immediately taken a liking to her, and the way she's trying her best to get her life back on track for both her own sake and the sake of her young son, Jayden. Will came into the stories later on, when Amber meets him and begins dating him, and I'm so thankful that Becky decided to give them a short story of their own, and it definitely did not disappoint.

In the short amount of pages included in this novella, the reader is treated to a first hand view of the elaborate proposal that Will has planned for Amber, and her resulting reaction. It was sweet and adorable, and really demonstrated both how Will and Amber are truly compatible, and also, how they've both relied heavily on their Heavenly Father to get to this point in their lives, and their relationship. I also really enjoyed the way that Becky brought in some back story about why Amber's family situation was the way it was, and how Will was determined to help her move past the past, and embrace the future.

All in all, while this story was short, it was also sweet, heartwarming, and compelling, and I gave it four out of five stars. I've yet to be disappointed in anything that Becky has written, and that was once again the case here. I loved Amber and Will's happy ending, and how many of the beloved characters from the main books make an appearance, and I highly recommend reading this if you've read the rest of the beloved Porter Family series.

Thanks so much for reading guys! Have a great rest of your week, and I'll see you all again soon for more bookish content.

Hallmark Book To Movie Adaptations For Christmas 2017 :)

Good Morning Guys, and Welcome Back to The Preppy Book Princess.

I'm Kirby, and as always, I'm excited to be hear with y'all!

Is anyone else's morning off to a bit of a rough start? I just managed to break my husband's favorite glass, and on top of feeling awful over doing so, I just got the fun job of cleaning up itty bitty pieces of broken glass all over my kitchen floor, and mopping up the milk that seemed to work its way into every crook and crevice in my kitchen.

Oh well, nothing to do about it but move on, and hope and pray that the rest of the day can only go uphill from here.

So considering this morning's events had me not in the greatest mood, I thought today's blog post would be the perfect way to cheer me up.

If any of you aren't familiar with my blog, on top of loving books, cooking, and preppy fashion, I'm a huge fan of made for TV Christmas movies, with the Hallmark Channel's almost always being my favorites.

Once Upon A Prince: Book To Hallmark Movie

Happy Thursday Guys :)

As most of you know, I usually don't post on Thursdays, but I had to make an exception this week.

I recently discovered that one of my favorite inspirational novels is becoming a Hallmark Channel original movie, and I couldn't wait to share the news with all of you guys.

That book is, as you can tell by the title of my post, Once Upon A Prince by Rachel Hauck:

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

I hope you're all having a great week, and I thank you for joining me today on The Preppy Book Princess 👸

A few weeks ago I saw the trailer for the upcoming movie, Midnight Sun, and I was really intrigued by it. Since it releases next month, and I definitely wanted to read the book before I saw the movie, I took some time this last weekend to read this relatively quick read.

And today I'd like to share with you all what my thoughts were on it.
