‘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 fiancĂ©!

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…

It's been a while since I had a good book boyfriend, someone that I enjoyed reading about and wishing that they were all mine. But in Rohan I got exactly that, from the first in person meeting between him and Bonnie I could sense he was rather special 

Of course it isn't all smooth sailing as his first time he actually came across Bonnie was on twitter, and the best way I can describe him was an idiot, and after having a huge public row with someone online it is that bit harder to try and get the person to like you afterwards. 

Bonnie is the ultimate believer in true love and she loves weddings. Rohan is a complete skeptic but after their twitter row they are both sent to get a story about a small island often called The Little Wedding Island, although its real name of Edelweiss Island sums up how pretty it really is. 

From the moment they stepped foot on the island you could tell it was a magical sort of place, where everyone believe in fate and marriage. 

You won't believe the lengths our pair of opposites go to to try to get the story about the island that hates reporters.  You may believe though in love at first sight and love being blind, both of which may become key to the story. 

The island is picturesque and has such wonderful locals on it, I would have loved it to be real to visit for myself. Between the pretty descriptions of everything on the island, to the sarcastic asides that Rohan makes on a frequent basis, to the sheer optimism radiating from Bonnie,  you have a fabulous mix of characters and location for this wonderfully charming story. 

This is the second book I have read from this author, and second book I have utterly adored,  I really need to make sure I read her next one as soon as it comes out.  This is story that brings pure escapism and joy to its readers and had me believing in true love and beautiful, secretive wedding locations. 

Thank you to Netgalley and HQ Digital for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.

  1. Thank you so much, Rachel! I loved re-reading this review! Rohan was one of my favourite love interests to write, I didn't want to leave him when the book was finished! So glad you enjoyed! xx
