Fictional Characters in Panto: Cinderella, starring the cast from One Hundred Christmas Proposals

Today's festive feature is brought to us by author Holly Martin who has certainly been a busy lady this year with the publication of her novels The Guestbook, One Hundred Proposals and One Hundred Christmas Proposals.

Harry and Suzie would make the perfect Prince Charming and Cinderella.  Harry adores Suzie and in One Hundred Proposals he takes her round the world to prove his love for her.  Prince Charming proves his love for Cinderella by going to every house in the land to try to find her.  Suzie is a normal girl who works hard in her job, just like Cinderella.  After a tough patch in her life when her brother dies, she needs the magic of the proposals to turn her life around and Harry, her very own Prince Charming, does that for her.

Badger would make the perfect Buttons.  He is loyal to Harry and Suzie and goes out of his way to give them both the happy ever after they deserve. In One Hundred Christmas Proposals it looks like Badger will get his own happy ever after too.

We don’t meet Suzie’s mom in One Hundred Proposals but in One Hundred Christmas Proposals she more than makes up for her absence in the first book.  She would be perfect to play the evil stepmother.  She is a complete cow to Suzie and Harry and tries to interfere in their lives in the most horrible ways. We all need a villain to hate and boo and hiss at and in One Hundred Christmas Proposals she is it.

If you thought Harry & Suzie’s life couldn't get anymore sweepingly romantic than Harry asking her to marry him at the end of One Hundred Proposals – think again! 

It’s Christmas in a snow-kissed London, and have vowed to carry out one hundred proposals in December. No easy task at the best of times - made even more complicated by Harry & Suzie trying to plan their first Christmas and a visit from the dreaded in-laws. But one hundred deliciously Christmassy proposals later they find themselves asking if everything is still perfect in their own relationship…. 

Welcome back to the divinely warm world of One Hundred Proposals – with a sprinkling of pure, joyful, festive magic.
