I’m delighted to be one of the stops on the blog tour for The Weekend Spa Break by Anne John-Ligali and sharing my review today. First of all though let's take a look at the description for the book...
Friendships Online Series
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?

Even though this is part two in the Friendships Online series I still feel that it can be read as a standalone. I really enjoyed the friendship between Constance and Estelle, it was lovely to see them spend more time together and indulge in some pampering at the same time.
The story moves quickly with plenty of fun moments along with a touch of drama. With The Weekend Spa Break being a short story it is ideal to read in an evening or even while having a relaxing afternoon. The great thing about this book is that there are actually a few surprises that pop up which definitely make things very interesting!
After reading about all the spa treatments I'm determined to treat myself one day! The Weekend Spa Break is a story with warmth, friendships and even a little bit of romance!
Four stars from me!
