Pretty much what you might expect, but enjoyable none the less.
Rating: 4.5/5 This book is appropriately tagged as ‘the perfect holiday beach read for 2018’ - mind you, you really don’t have to be on the beach to enjoy it! This is a heartwarming story involving twitter wars, dreams, competitions and superstitions, all associated with weddings! When the company producing the magazine that Bonnie Haskett works for gives them the challenge of finding the story to save it, she is sent to Edelweiss Island to investigate their claims that no one who has married there has ever subsequently got divorced. On the journey to the island she ends up helping a fellow passenger who suffers from sea sickness. It is only on arrival at the island that she discovers he is a rival reporter - the one she’s had twitter wars with and the one who his magazine have sent to outshine her report! However, the islanders don’t like reporters and so the two rivals agree to pretend to be engaged and visiting to see if they want to get married on the island….. Oh what a tangled web they’re weaving! This is a lovely romantic comedy that will bring a grin to your face as you read it. The couple are so opposite in so many ways that they’re bound to clash and their interactions are frequently hilarious. Add in their rivalry, the superb island characters - including a delightful puppy -and you’re in for a real treat. It is a delightful read and Edelweiss is a superb setting. I thoroughly enjoyed escaping into this book and suspect anyone who enjoys contemporary romance with plenty of angst and humour will also love this book, even if they aren’t on the beach when they read it. I requested and was given a copy of this novel, via NetGalley, with no obligation. This is my honest review of the book after choosing to read it.
Bonnie Haskett loves weddings, she even works for the publication ‘Two Gold Rings’, a magazine all about getting married. Rohan Carter hates weddings, he works for ‘The Man Land’, a rival magazine to ‘Two Gold Rings’, writing under his alias, R.C. Art. When Bonnie and Rohan have an online argument via Twitter, their bosses are none too happy with them. Their magazine readers are already in decline and their public spat has lost them a few more. To try to get some of their readers back each of their bosses has an idea, to send their reporters off to Edelweiss Island, off south coast UK, and investigate the claims that the church on the island has never married a couple who have gone on to get divorced. However, the locals on the island have had enough of reporters sniffing around, so there is only one thing for it, the pair are going to have to pretend to be getting married to get the scoop. But is their love really just a pretence? The Little Wedding Island, is an amusing, uplifting novel that had me smiling the whole way through. Both Bonnie and Rohan are both very likeable in their own way. Bonnie believes in Mr. Right, and love, whereas Rohan has obviously been hurt in the past and doesn’t believe there is such a thing as love. Their characters work perfectly together and bounce off one another. Jaimie Admans has written an amusing Rom-Com. The setting of Edelweiss Island was just gorgeous. The cliff-top views, the adorable B&B, the magnificent church and the ‘wedding’ street with all the shops you need to create the perfect wedding were so vibrant and written with enough detail that I could picture the island in all its glory. This is just a beautiful book. I was held captivated by the story and once I’d started reading it, I didn’t want it to end.
