I’m on the blog tour for The Weekend Spa Break by Anne John-Ligali today and as well as sharing my review I also have details of a fabulous giveaway by the author.
The weekend Spa Break is available in ebook for only £1.99 now, you can buy a copy here.
Before I share my review and details of the giveaway, here is a little about the book.
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?
This was a fun, easy read that was quite fast paced and thoroughly entertaining . The author manages to fit quite a lot of action into this short book which helped to keep my interest.
The story focuses mainly on Constance & Estelle, their friendship and experience at the spa. However the reader is kept up-to-date with the other members of the group through social media updates which I thought was a very modern, clever idea as that’s how a lot of people jeekin touch nowadays.
The author has a great way of describing things. I felt that I could smell the burnt cake, taste the delicious coffee and I could really imagine the spa and coffee shop settings both of which I want to visit immediately!
The ending was quite surprising and wasn’t one that I was expecting. If I’m honest I do wish it had ended slightly differently, but it was a clift hanger so maybe this will make more sense in the next book.
This is the second book in the Friendship Online series but could easily be read as a standalone as everything you need to know is explained at the beginning.
Thank you to Rachel of Rachel’s Random Resources and the author for inviting me onto the blog tour and sending me a copy of this book.
