The Weekend Spa Break by Anne John-Ligali #BlogTour @AnneJohnLigali @rararesources

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?

The Weekend Spa Break by Anne John-Ligali is a delicious, quick read. A novella that follows the first instalment and finds lead character Constance and her friend Estelle having a spa day. The spa voucher was a gift from Estelle to Constance.

Although it's just these two characters who visit the spa, the author cleverly incorporates their friends into the story by using social media as a way to communicate with them. So, although they are not there, the reader gets to know a little more about them.

The spa setting is fabulous. I'm a huge fan of a spa day, there's nothing better, in my eye, than a day of complete luxury and relaxation. In fact, when I'd finished the story, I was straight onto the laptop and booked myself a day at a local spa. That's the power of reading!

This story is not just about champagne and being pampered though. The author has created characters who are really interesting, and there are reveals galore in this story. Add the references to the book world and this really is the perfect pick-me-up story.

Fun and well written. Anne John-Ligali is a talented author whose story makes the reader feel good, it's full of up to the minute references to social media and features a cast of characters who are quite fascinating, if not always likeable!
