The Little Wedding Island by Jaimie Admans - Book Review & Giveaway

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Review by Suze

Bonnie works for a bridal magazine and is a true romantic. She loves weddings and everything they represent. She stands up for what she believes in, which is why she gets into a twitter fight with a cynical man who doesn't have anything positive to say about weddings. Coincidentally her enemy works in the publishing industry as well and their paths are about to cross once more, but this time they will actually meet in person. After the argument Bonnie is being sent to Edelweiss Island, 'The Little Wedding Island", to write an article about its secrets, no marriage that takes place on the island ever ends in divorce. Is this actually true? On her way there Bonnie meets Rohan and she finds out pretty soon that he is the man she had the conflict with. He's surprisingly kind and chivalrous and he constantly makes her laugh, which is the last thing she wants to feel in his presence.

Rohan is after the same thing as Bonnie, an article about Edelweiss Island. Journalists aren't welcome and nobody has ever been able to tell the true story behind the island's reputation. To have a chance at uncovering the secrets of the inhabitants Rohan and Bonnie need a strategy. They decide to pretend to be interested in getting married on the island. There's one problem, they don't like each other, or do they?

The Little Wedding Island is a wonderful feelgood story. Weddings are Bonnie's life. She's never been in love, but she hopes she'll find her mister right and she's even already chosen her wedding dress for when that happens. Edelweiss Island suits her and she feels right at home in a place that evolves around being in love. Rohan is more cynical. He doesn't believe in marriage and thinks love is a curse. He's clearly been hurt and tries to protect his heart against future damage. It was interesting to see if Bonnie could break down his walls. They are amazing together. I loved their easy banter, their immediate closeness and their effortless way to know what the other wants and needs, they perfectly understand each other. There's plenty of chemistry between them and it's obvious from the start there's something magical going on between them. Finding out if they'd have a chance together kept me on the edge of my seat.

Jaimie Admans has a warm and open writing style that's laced with humor. I love her witty dialogue and her stories always make me smile. The Little Wedding Island is a heartwarming story about true love. It has a gorgeous setting that melted my heart. I absolutely love the idea of an island where real love is everyone's main purpose. It's a fantastic dreamy subject for a story and Jaimie Adman's execution is flawless. The Little Wedding Island is charming, sweet, entertaining, endearing and enchanting, it's a story to fall in love with forever.


If you love romantic stories about true love with wonderful mesmerizing settings you don't want to miss The Little Wedding Island.
