Something a little lighter for you all this afternoon! After revealing the cover of ‘The Weekend Spa Break’ not so long ago, I am delighted to be reviewing the book as part of the blog tour this time around! Thank you to RaRaResources for the blog tour invite, and the ARC. Here is my review:
Friendships Online Series
After finally meeting in person at the publishing party of the season, Constance and Estelle are determined not to let their friendship return to mere virtual champagne bottles and uploaded pictures of food.
It’s been a busy year, and Constance feels it’s time to reward herself with the spa break
Estelle gave her for Christmas. Naturally, Constance wouldn’t dream of taking anyone other than Estelle, and this will provide the perfect opportunity to bond with her new chum.
As the excited pair spend some quality time together, they realise it’s not just writing books they have in common, but something that goes much deeper. After a few Jacuzzi sessions, facials, pedicures, and a massage by sexy Senior Therapist, Julio, everything seems to be peachy until an unexpected visitor turns Constance’s weekend of bliss … on its head.
A two-day spa break.
Sparkling water on tap.
And the perfect massage.
But who’s rubbing who up the wrong way?
What does TWG think?
‘The Weekend Spa Break’ is part two of the series, so please do bear in mind that it is recommended for part one to be read beforehand.
Having rather enjoyed part one, I couldn’t wait to catch up again with Constance and find out what she had been up to since meeting her online buddies at the publishing party! Even though ‘The Weekend Spa Break’ isn’t too long, the contents of the story still pack a punch, leaving me wanting more.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading the latest instalment into Constance’s life, and even though I was able to laugh out loud on more than one occasion, I was also able to feel empathy towards a couple of the characters when things in their lives were brought to light. This book isn’t all fun and games, it’s actually a thought-provoking and touching novel which will make you see social media through a very different filter; AKA – real life.
A very energetic and eye-opening little read, I am so looking forward to reading the final instalment!
