Pack your case, get your best hat off the top of the wardrobe, and make sure your bag is full of confetti, as you hop on a boat to Edelweiss Island, just past the Isle of Wight and second star to the left… Also known as The Little Wedding Island to its residents, and those who travel there to tie the knot.
"People use humor as a barrier to protect themselves…"
I find myself again partially enjoying a book by this author. The secondary characters, the island and the story-line themselves were absolutely stellar, but again (and this was my bug bear with the previous book I read by her) I found myself disliking one of the main characters more and more as the story progressed.
No sooner do you think you’ve found a good one, then they turn out to be a knob in disguise…
The knob in question this time is Rohan Carter, you understand early on that this is a guy who has been hurt by his past relationships, familial and in the love stakes, but what started out as pointed sarcasm and acerbic wit, just turned into bitter and on occasion’s outright rudeness as things moved on. I won’t lie I didn’t find a lot of his snark, and put-downs for everything that enamoring in the first half of the book, but it just went downhill from there in the second half, but I stuck with it as I liked the story in general, and applauded Bonnie for trying to change his mind about love and all things romantic, while trying to get what she needed from her visit, as well as keep up the pretense of a fake engagement with him.
Decent story writing from this author again, I just found her lead characterizations a little too much to keep me feeling amiable towards them for the whole book.
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.
