The Little Wedding Island Review


Hello hello hello.

Yes it's been a while. None of the mystical content that I foretold in my last post has appeared. It will come to no-one's surprise that I am in a rut. I always seem to be in one rut or another when it comes to blogging. I'm always saying that I don't have a niche, maybe 'in a rut' can be my blogging niche? 

 I might be in a bit of a black hole with all my other blog content but damn I still love writing reviews so here's another one for ya! Thanks to the lovely Jenny at Neverland Blog Tours, here's a review of The Little Wedding Island by Jaimie Admans.

‘Will you… pretend to marry me?’

 Bonnie Haskett loves everything about weddings. She loves her job at a national bridal magazine and even has a deposit down on her dream dress. 
The only problem? She doesn’t have a fiancĂ©!
 So when Bonnie is sent to Edelweiss Island, known as ‘The Little Wedding Island’, 
it’s a dream come true. She’s heard the rumours, every wedding that takes place in the tiny chapel ends in a happy-ever-after.
 But there’s a catch! Investigating the story, Bonnie needs to pose as a blushing bride – and the only man up for posing as her groom is her arch rival (and far too handsome for his own good) journalist Rohan Carter…

A gorgeously uplifting summer romance. Perfect for fans of Holly Martin and Caroline Roberts.


Whether you are a hopeless romantic like Bonnie, a stubborn cynic like Rohan or a mixture of both like me, I think you'll love this book. I was utterly absorbed by it. Like with most books I read nowadays, I expected to read a chapter or two before bed and continue on every night until I finished it but I found myself still reading into the wee hours because I couldn't stop. I honestly can't remember the last time I laughed out loud while reading but this book had me choking back chuckles at stupid o'clock in the morning. The tagline for this book hits the nail on the head 'A gorgeously uplifting romantic comedy.' It is all of those things and more.

The chemistry between Bonnie and Rohan is what drew me in the most. Not just the swoon head over heels chemistry that is expected from a romance novel but the sharp banter and the infuriating comments are what made them believable. You think it's going to be a predictable story with predictable characters and yes the first few pages lay that out very well but both the characters and the story ended up surprising me!

I'd never read anything by Jaimie Admans prior to receiving this book for review but I genuinely am going to pick up some of her other titles because I'm that in love with how she wrote this book. It was funny, acerbic, witty, touching and made me laugh out loud and tear up in equal measure.

If you're looking for a romantic story to make you laugh and warm the cockles of your heart, this is the one!

5/5 stars
★★★★★

Jaimie is a 32-year-old English-sounding Welsh girl with an awkward-to-spell name. She lives in South Wales and enjoys writing, gardening, watching horror movies, and drinking tea, although she’s seriously considering marrying her coffee machine. She loves autumn and winter, and singing songs from musicals despite the fact she’s got the voice of a dying hyena. She hates spiders, hot weather, and cheese & onion crisps. She spends far too much time on Twitter and owns too many pairs of boots.
 She will never have time to read all the books she wants to read.

 She is the author of chick-lit romantic comedies The Chateau of Happily Ever Afters, The Little Wedding Island, and Kismetology, and she has also written young-adult romantic comedies Afterlife Academy, Not Pretty Enough, and North Pole Reform School.
