BLOG TOUR & GIVEAWAY: The Weekend Spa Break by Anne John-Ligali @annejohnligali @rararesources

I'm excited to be today's stop for this tour!  You may remember me posting about Part 1 in this series, The Big Event (find my review HERE).  Today I bring to you, Part 2!

Continue below for a synopsis, about the author, GIVEAWAY, trailer and my review!

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 its 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:

I love these little shorter stories as a series.  The Big Event was such a pleasant read as most of us who have ventured into social media and have found a community we relate to, have made friends - it's bringing those on screen friendships to life and meeting in person that can be daunting and exciting at the same time.  But when you meet a few friends that you really connect with - that's the fun part!  True friendships can certainly be made.  We also learn that not everything is as it seems so don't let anyone's social media "front" fool you or make you think their life is better.  That's rarely ever the case.

Now we have Constance and Estelle who finally had met and now embark on a Weekend Spa getaway and find they have more in common than they ever knew.  Sometimes getting away and pampering yourself is just the only way to deal with things.  When things get a little strange and personal, unwanted surprises come up... there's nothing better than having someone by your side to help you through them.

An adorable series.
