  • Tremendous story

    I was in two minds about buying this book because I thought it might spoil the film for me. Needn't have worried. It's a tremendous story of a girl named in honour of the film. I loved it .

  • A must read

    This is another fabulous read from Jamie Admans. You might be mistaking from looking a the cover that its a light read, however it touches on a very serious subject...suicide. As someone who has lost family members and friends to this, I was worried that it wouldn't be taken seriously enough, but Admans finds the perfect balance between the light and the dark. The characters are well developed, and my heart was with both of the main characters. A must read

  • My new favourite Christmas book!

    Jaimie Admans’ books are always a joy to read. They’re fun and funny and always have a magical quality and something about them that makes them feel different from anything else I’ve read. It’s a Wonderful Night had that magical quality I’ve come to love in Jaimie’s books, but the thing that really set it apart was something completely unexpected: the fact it dealt with mental illness. Honestly, take a moment to let that sink in: a romantic comedy that deals with mental illness. I love romcoms and have read many of them, most of which are light, fluffy, feel-good stories. An escape from reality. When you think of those things, you don’t associate them with mental health issues, right? But that’s one of the things that sets It’s a Wonderful Night apart and makes it a must read. Jaimie Admans struck the perfect balance between fun and funny romcom and serious, true-to-life, relatable issues. As someone who has battled with depression since her teens, I’m always on the look-out for books that depict mental illness in not only a realistic way, but a sensitive and thoughtful way, and Jaimie did that. Having that not only in a romantic comedy, but one centred about the holidays, was brilliant. It’s important to talk about mental health all the time, but I think it’s especially important around the holidays because they can be difficult for many people. This book shone a spotlight on those complicated Christmas + depression emotions. It didn’t make light of it and it didn’t sensationalize it. It didn’t make it seem like there was a magic cure for depression or that simply ‘getting in the holiday spirit’ would fix anything. Georgia reminded Leo that no matter how bad things get, they can get better and there are things - and people - worth sticking around for. She reminded him about the good things in life and that he matters. He’s important. Life is worth living. It was a beautiful, heartfelt message that rang so true for me and really spoke to me on a deep level. The book wasn’t solely about Leo’s struggles with depression, though. It was also a story about friendship, community, and pursuing your dreams. It was sweet and heartwarming and hopeful. And romantic! I’ve found a new book boyfriend and his name is Leo. He was a perfect example of someone hiding behind a mask - always smiling, kind and generous, but hurting inside. He would do anything for anyone, and put himself last until Georgia came along and showed him how valued he was. I absolutely adored Leo and Georgia, and all the other Oakbarrow residents. These characters leapt off the pages and felt so real. I didn’t want this book to end, and it’s been a long time since I’ve felt that while reading a book. I could picture it all so clearly...which made me realize this would make a wonderful movie. Get on it, Hallmark! If you’re looking for a sweet, funny, heartwarming read this holiday season - or any time of the year - I hope you’ll pick up a copy of It’s a Wonderful Night. It’s not only a beautiful festive read, it’s also a reminder that even in the worst of times, there’s still hope, and you’re not alone.

  • WOW WOW WOW WOW

    What can I say... I just loved this beautiful story which shows how important friends are to every one of us! The story starts with Leo, a man with the world on his shoulders who has found himself  at his lowest point in life. He is standing on the edge of the town bridge as he considers jumping off as he feels he cannot go on with life.  Luckily he calls a helpline number he found on a leaflet at the side of the bridge, however in his distressed state he calls the local charity shop instead of the 24-hour counselling helpline.  I will say no more about the plot - you need to go read it for yourself! If you enjoy watching It's A Wonderful Life when it comes on TV each year then you will LOVE this book. The author clearly loves the film and has reminded me how good it is that I am planning on a Sunday afternoon cosy on the couch watching it with my little dog by my side. The author, Jaimie Admans, has given us a gorgeous festive romance whilst dealing with the sensitive issue of depression, loneliness and the feeling of failure that so many people  are struggling with but feel they can't talk about.  These are generally those around us who appear to be the happiest, most cheerful and easy going which real life has shown us all time and time again. This book made me laugh (and lots of happy tears) and cry (some sad tears) but the main feeling was of hope, of friendship, of the reminder that we should all be a bit more aware of the people around us.  I read this book in one sitting, a wet but bright Saturday afternoon into the evening and once I had finished reading my world felt a much brighter place.
