‘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 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…
First impressions of this book was that I was going to love it. And I did. I instantly fell head over heels for Bonnie, for Rohan and for Edelweiss. I’m at the final stages of wedding planning, and it made me remember why I’m getting married. Its not for the day, it’s for the days, months and years after. This book should be read by everyone who is having major wedding planning dramas, doubt or just planning a wedding full stop.
I loved all of the characters we meet on Edelweiss, they made me laugh and smile stupidly at how crazy about love they are. The chemistry between Bonnie and Rohan is instant, it’s charming, fun and amazing. I found myself laughing along with them when it came to their jokes, I found myself wanting to cry for Bonnie and how she feels, and at times I wanted to scoop Rohan in the big hug that he obviously so desperately needed, or give hi such a slap for being an idiot.
The story flowed easily, and was written beautifully. I shall definitely be looking out for more of Jaimie Admans books!! I’ve loved everything about The Little Wedding Island and really wish it was a real place, I’d instantly be cancelling my own upcoming wedding and eloping to Edelweiss.
This is another of those books that I didn’t want to end, and I really do hope this is the last we see of Bonnie and Rohan. If it is, then the ending is as perfect as it could get.
This book is fabulously romantic, it’s perfect in ever sense. For that reason, this book is getting my third 5/5 of the year.

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.
