The Dinner In The Sky by Anne John-Ligali #Review #Blogtour


After a shocking confrontation with an unexpected encounter, Constance tries to piece her life back together and is on a mission to finally move on.

The thought of having her friends nearby is a comfort as they take time out of their busy online lives and regularly meet up at their favourite place, A Cupful of Dreams Café. Everyone seems happy enough until cracks begin to show and all is not as good as it seems. Constance tries desperately to keep positive as there’s so much to look forward to: shopping for posh frocks, dinner at The Shard and a movie premiere.

As things start to look rosy, a few odd tweets begin to pop up from nowhere. At first, they seem innocent, but as the weeks go by and premier night draws near, not only do the tweets increase but they become more obnoxious.

By the time Constance and her chums arrive on the red carpet, she’s determined to work out who the troll could be and to keep them from spoiling her evening. However, as Constance soon learns, the troll wants to destroy far more than that!

Breathtaking views of London.  

Posh frocks and Paparazzi

But there’s definitely trouble in the air …

My Review

Is like to thank Anne and Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me in to this wonderful blog tour.

I’m such a fan of Anne’s books. The first two in the online series have been short stories, whereas this isn’t.

I do enjoy a short story but it was lovely getting to know more about Constance, her life and everyone in it.

Anne’s style of writing has a warmth that pulls you into the story and the characters feel like friends.

With love and laughs plentiful there is also a thread of intrigue running throughout. The mystery of who the online troll is that is sending Constance the slowly worsening tweets keeps you hooked.

I adored reading about Constance’s son Charlie who is autistic. My daughter is on the spectrum and working in early years I also have lots of contact with little ones on the spectrum. Anne’s portrayal of Charlie and the uphill battle that Constance fights is so true to life. I’m sure any parent with a child on the spectrum can relate to the highs and lows.

The Dinner In The Sky is a beautiful mixture of love, laughter, friends and family with a pinch of mystery thrown in. A perfect warm and sunny read for a dismal rainy June!
