Opposites attract and no truer words have been said than these for our main characters Bonnie and Rohan. Bonnie believes in forever love and marriage (obsessed with weddings, has already paid a deposit on a wedding dress with no groom in sight, she is a bit over-the-top, almost naive about love), and Rohan hates anything wedding-y, he is cynical, does not believe in love or happily ever after.
When these opposites collide, sparks emanate, attraction bursts, and the book is a loving delightful friction waiting to happen and to enthrall us. To save their career, Bonnie and Rohan are sent to Edelweiss Island also known as The Little Wedding Island, to get the scoop and the backstory about how people married there never get divorced.
My first book by Jamie Admans, and what a wonderful, funny, rom-com, light-hearted book. All my stress and tensions of the day just fell apart reading this book. There is humor around a story which warms the heart. Jamie’s dialogs are witty and enchanting, her talent in making us feel the emotions of the characters is amazing.
I live the way Jamie has described the island with such magic and mysticism, that I longed to visit this island (would love to get married here). Both Bonnie and Rohan, who are so evidently opposites, yet get charmed by the island and its residents. It was fun to see them slowly fall in love with each other and the Island.
Romance, magic, love, humor, attraction, happiness, wonderful lovable characters, beautiful settings, a prose which makes the writing shine, all go together to make this book a delight to read. Sweet, light-hearted and a blissful fun read on a cozy afternoon with tea and biscuits. The book from start to finish is a magic waiting to happen!!
I received an ARC from NetGalley and publisher HQ Digital, and this is my honest and unbiased opinion.
My rating : 4.5 stars
About the Author
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.
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 fiancé!
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…
