The Weekend Spa Break Cover-2

Friendships Online Series

Part Two

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?

Review

Many thanks to the author for the ARC in return for an honest review.

There were a number of things I liked about this novella.

It’s humour is infectious and makes The Weekend Spa Break an enjoyable and easy read. I found myself smiling and laughing throughout, which is nice when you have been fast paced, tense thrillers. I could simply sit back and imagine myself  on a relaxing spa break with the characters.

The themes of friendship and the ways friendships are made, really struck a chord with me. I loved how the author developed these themes from the first in the series of short books, of how friendships made  on-line can devolve into real and supportive relationships. It reflects modern life and the importance of social media in so many peoples lives.

Best of all there is a group of characters that are fumny, warm, spikey, selfish and giving, reflecting real friendship groups and the ways we connect with people without ever knowing why!

You can read my review of the first in the series The Big Event.

And buy The Weekend Spa Break can be purchased from Amazon.
