The Weekend Spa Break by Anne John-Ligali (Book Review)


Today I am so thrilled to be taking part in the Blog Tour for The Weekend Spa Break by Anne John-Ligali. It is the second part of the Friendship’s Online Series.

I would like to thank Rachel’s Random Resources and Anne John-Ligali for my invitation to take part in the Blog Tour


The Weekend Spa Break Tour


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.

And the perfect massage.


But who’s rubbing who up the wrong way?

My Review

I reviewed the first part of the series, The Big Event in November last year and have looked forward to the second installment ever since.

We now move on from the sparkly Christmas party where the group of online friends met up for the first time. Since then a few months have passed and the main character Constance meets up with friend Estelle for a spa break.

It was nice to get to know the characters of Estelle and Constance in more detail. I think the novella showed that it’s so important to have good friends who can help you with the bad times and that talking face to face is the only real way to get to know someone. Constance and Estelle certainly did that, and they found that they had more in common than they thought.

I liked the addition of Instagram posts from the other friends to stay connected, I suspect they may appear again in Part Three!

A short insightful read about friends and families, which shows that all is never quite what it seems.

Thank you to Rachel and the author for my review copy of this novella.

My review of  The Big Event can be seen in this post.
