The Weekend Spa Break by Anne John-Ligali #Blogtour #Review #Giveaway


Part of the 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?

My Review

Firstly I would like to thank Rachel’s Random Resources and Anne John – Ligali for including me in this blog tour.

I’ve been eagerly awaiting the second installment of The Friendship online series and The Weekend Spa Break definitely didn’t disappoint.

I really enjoyed The Big Event, Anne’s first installment in this series. I always realise, and mention it quite often in my blog posts how i forget just how much i enjoy a short story, i’m then reminded the minute i have the privilege to review one.

The Weekend Spa Break is just one of those books. I adore Anne’s writing style. In a very short time you feel as if you know the characters within the pages personally and it is so easy to become involved in their story.

I enjoyed revisiting Constance and finding out more about her life, especially her lost loves and relationship stories. Seeing Constance and Estelle’s friendship develop throughout the story was lovely.

I’m so looking forward to number three in this series!
