Cover Reveal

Cover Reveal: The Little Wedding Island By Jaimie Admans

When Jaimie Admans tweeted yesterday saying she would be revealing her latest cover I was intrigued the pink was a hint and I’m so chuffed with the cover. The strap-line on the cover says a gorgeously uplifting romantic comedy – and this cover screams uplifting whilst it’s getting colder in London town where I am, this screams sunshine and warmth which is what I want right now.

I have been out doing a spot of Christmas shopping and having a little me time today although I had an awful experience in Nero but the cake was good.

Anyway I wanted to tell you all about this gorgeous treat I wasn’t part of the cover reveal team but I literally couldn’t resist I have been thinking about this book since I saw the cover. I may have requested on Netgalley so fingers crossed.

Here is the blurb: ‘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…

This gorgeous treat is available to pre-order here Now and it’s out on 2nd March 2018 it’s definitely one I’m looking forward to. I loved The Chateau Of Happily Ever Afters and here is my review of that. https://hayleyreviews10.wordpress.com/2017/07/07/blog-tour-the-chateau-of-happily-ever-afters-by-jaimie-admans/

20 Books Of Summer Update 

So I thought it was high time I started looking into how I’m actually doing on this challenge, and the fact that this post won on my poll means you guys thought the same. Great minds eh?

As you may remember I picked 15 actual books and had some leeway for the remaining five.

This challenge started in June seeing as we are now into July I thought I should see how I’m fairing. 

So the first book I completed for the 20 Books of Summer was…


This was my first full novel of Katey Lovell’s and wow what an awesome start. The cover is beautiful and the story is lovely. Here is my review of the beautiful The Cafe In Fir Tree Park.

My second book of the challenge…


This gorgeous gorgeous beauty that simply stole my heart this year. Part of my heart is in my fabulous Salou but there is a part in Mojacar and I haven’t even visited this gorgeous place yet but I will. Here is my review of Then Now Always

My audio read…


The review of this beauty hasn’t been finished but I loved this such a funny and lighthearted audio book and another of Catriona aka Fabbookfiend recommendations. 


I was on the blog tour for this beautiful novella and you can still win my copy and here is my review Secrets of The Italian Gardener.


Now this one I was on the cover reveal and the blog tour for this beauty. It’s a gorgeous story and it’s made me think about my life and what I want. My review and The cover reveal

So as it stands that’s five actual books and then these….



And part one and two of this little beauty….


As it stands I have reviewed part one…Brief Encounter at the picture house by the sea.

I was then begging for more so I devoured this.


I loved this but I haven’t had a chance to review this part. I decided to not read part three until nearer part four. As much as I liked part two there were bits that were frustrating my little brain.

Anyway that’s where I’m at….as it stands I’m adoring this

Keep an eye on my Twitter HayleyTOfficial for my polls where you can decide what I post.

Sunday Sunday, update

Sunday Sunday

Sunday’s are my me day, it’s my one constant and definite day to myself. I don’t want to harp on about my ankle but yesterday was a productive work day and I’m so proud of my team but my ankle is in agony. Today I wanted to do more than I have for the blog – although I have made a little progress in some ways and I wanted to get stuck into this beauty.


After it’s release last year it had definitely piqued my interest by the many gorgeous blog reviews and after discovering Paige Toon via The Last Piece Of My Heart My Review I knew this had to be my second read of hers. This review by my awesome mate Catriona helped 🙂 The One We Fell In Love with by FabBookFiend

This bench needs some love and care as you can see but as I sit here now in the cooler part of the day (I’m in proper Sunday chill mode and no one needs to see my hair how it is). It does make me smile sitting here as this is my Nan & Grandads bench that holds so many memories and I’m sure he patched it up a fair few times over the years. We do need to get it sorted and restored to it’s former glory and I believe my sister wants to get a plaque for them which would be lovely. So maybe when it’s looking more like how it did I will actually take a rare selfie with me and obviously a book – on that Grandad would approve I may even take it with one of his Jack Reachers. Those I definitely want to get back to. 

This week has been a crazy one with mixed emotions for me. I won’t bore on there was a lot of work, and trying to take care of the ankle I have even been trying to do some of the exercises whilst I type. I got to see a fab show in Gloria with the bestie and here are the blog posts for the week. 

  • Where did I wander this week I love my wandering Wednesday’s my lil stamp on my love of books and wanting to wander some more.
  • Unique Blogger Awards – this was an honour and I loved the reaction from bloggers still makes me smile. Thanks to this post I also hit my most views ever in a day.
  • The Chateau of Happily Ever Afters – Jaimie is amazing this book spoke to me in so many ways. It’s made me want to look at what I want in life take a risk or two. 

That’s my Sunday back to my book 🙂 plus must get organised for the blog this week. I would like to have my posts a lot earlier in the day. Take care all and have a beautiful week filled with books and positivity.

20 Books of Summer, Blog Tour, New Author to me, Uncategorized

Blog Tour: The Chateau of Happily Ever Afters By Jaimie Admans and Giveaway…

Published on by HQ Digital on 7th June 2017

Blurb: Escape to beautiful France this summer with this uplifting romantic comedy.

Where dreams come true…?
Wendy Clayton stopped believing in fairy tales a long time ago. Instead, she has a ‘nice’ life. Nice job. Nice flat. Absolutely no men. Until her life is turned upside-down when her elderly neighbour, Eulalie, passes away and leaves her the Château of Happily Ever Afters!

But there’s a catch: she must share the sprawling French castle with Eulalie’s long-lost nephew, Julian. And no matter how gorgeous he is, or how easily she finds herself falling head over heels, Wendy needs to find a way to get rid of him…
Because surely happily ever afters don’t happen in real life?

Review: Firstly better late than never! It’s been a crazy week for me and I was hoping to spend my day off engrossed by this gorgeous book but the beaming sun gave me other ideas namely a splitting headache, since then I have had a number of interruptions but I’m finally ready to share my thoughts.

I remember when I first saw this cover and Jenny was asking who wanted to be on the cover reveal and then the blog tour and I jumped at the chance. I hadn’t read anything by Jaimie before this but I definitely will read more from her.

Wow wow wow!!!!! This book stirred up so many emotions I was laughing and crying I literally fell in love with the characters especially Wendy and Julian and I too feel like I kind of know Eulalie.

As you would have seen my various wandering Wednesday’s I’m often wandering and this time it’s to France. A place that in my life I have had mixed feelings towards but the chateau sounds picturesque to jet off and change my life like Wendy and Julian have is just what I need right now.

Jaimie thank you for giving me a book that has made me question a lot of the things I say and do. Sometimes taking a step outside of your comfort zone is exactly what you need. 

I love that the story is kind of left open- I would love to see these characters revisited and I desperately want to read more from Jaimie. I loved trying to power read to make this all happen and I’m glad I did this book is one of my faves from 2017 and I will definitely be recommending to anyone who will listen.

To honour the fact this post is so late it’s almost tomorrow I won’t be posting tomorrow. Have a wonderful weekend whatever you are doing and share with me what you are reading.

There is a gorgeous giveaway that I almost forgot.
