Book Review: A Wonderland Wish on Ever After Street by Jaimie Admans

I’m so pleased to be welcoming Jaimie Admans back to Novel Kicks and the blog tour for her latest book,  A Wonderland Wish on Ever After Street, book three in the Ever After Street series. 

A picture-perfect town, a place where dreams come true. Welcome to Ever After Street…

There’s always time for tea… unless you’ve lost your teapot…

Cleo Jordan has only ever wished for one thing – to open her own teashop in memory of her lovely gran. So when she accidentally fools the interview board into thinking she’s a brilliant baker and is offered a prime spot on Ever After Street, she knows her dream is about to come true!

Stepping into The Wonderland Teapot is like falling down the rabbit hole – magical! But there’s a catch: Cleo has completely lost her love of baking! With her little white lie ticking in her ear, it seems her dream is over before it’s begun.

Until she meets her very own Mad Hatter. Loved by everyone on Ever After Street, magician Bram brings an energy to the teashop that lifts everyone, and slowly, with his encouragement, Cleo is getting back to doing what she loves best.

But with Bram hiding secrets of his own, Cleo isn’t sure she can put all her faith in him. And when things start going wrong at the teashop, Cleo wonders if the culprit sabotaging her dream is someone closer than she thinks?

If Cleo wants her wish to work, she has to learn to trust again before she loses her head and heart completely…although it might already be far too late for that…


Cleo has grown to love Ever After Street and longs to own her own tea shop themed to Alice in Wonderland, her favourite novel. When she is given the opportunity, she wants to make the most of it….if only her ability to bake hadn’t deserted her. 

When a Mad Hatter arrives to work in the shop, Cleo isn’t so sure but as she gets to know the man behind the hat, could there be something more? 

I’m such a big fan of Jaime Admans so will jump on any opportunity to be part of a blog tour for any of her novels but especially for the Ever After Series. I adored the previous novel, An Enchanted Moment on Ever After Street. Although having knowledge of this gave me the joy of catching up with Marnie and Darcy, it doesn’t hinder the enjoyment of this novel if you’re new to the series. It can be read as a standalone. 

It was good to see Cleo get her own novel. She’s such a lovely character who is warm and relatable. She’s been through a lot and deserves to have success. She is welcomed onto Ever After Street with open arms (well, for the most part,) and it was so wonderful to be back amongst this community of characters. It was like I was visiting friends I’d not seen for a while. 

Bram is such an great character also. He is unapologetically himself and I love that. He made an amazing mad hatter. Seriously, I want to visit The Wonderland Teapot and have an unbirthday tea. In fact, I wished this street existed. I would be there in a heartbeat. 

Jaime Admans has such a skill at drawing you into her stories and making you really care about the people she is writing about. 

I don’t want to say much more as I am hoping you will discover this wonderful book and series for yourself. 

Summer is coming, that means holidays, days in the garden in the sun – this would make a great companion. Just saying. 

A Wonderland Wish on Ever After Street is a tale of love, friendship, community, and a lesson on accepting people for who they are. I really hope we visit the residents of this street again soon. 



About Jaimie Admans –

Jaimie is a 32-year-old English-sounding Welsh girl with an awkward-to-spell name. She lives in South Wales and enjoys writing, gardening, watching horror movies, and drinking tea, although she’s seriously considering marrying her coffee machine.

She loves autumn and winter, and singing songs from musicals despite the fact she’s got the voice of a dying hyena. She hates spiders, hot weather, and cheese & onion crisps. She spends far too much time on Twitter and owns too many pairs of boots.

She will never have time to read all the books she wants to read.

I’m Laura. I started Novel Kicks in 2009. I wanted a place to post my writing as well as give other writers like me the opportunity to do the same. There is also a monthly book club, a writing room which features writing prompts, book reviews, competitions, author interviews and guest posts.

I grew up by the sea (my favourite place in the world) and I currently live in Hampshire. I am married to Chris, have a cat named Buddy and I would love to be a writer. I’m trying to write the novel I’ve talked so much about writing if only I could stop pressing delete. I’ve loved writing since creative writing classes in primary school. I have always wanted to see my teacher Miss Sayers again and thank her for the encouragement. When not trying to write the novel or writing snippets of stories on anything I can get my hands on, I love reading, dancing like a loon and singing to myself very badly. My current obsession is Once Upon a Time and I would be happy to live with magic in the enchanted forest surrounded by all those wonderful stories provided that world also included Harry Potter. I love reading chick lit. contemporary fiction and novels with mystery.
