The Weekend Spa Break
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?

This is the second story in a three-part series of short stories, and it was absolutely delightful… it also can absolutely be read as a standalone, I believe you get a really good idea of who these characters are in this book… The premise behind the entire series is people becoming “friends“ online…. this is something I have thought about myself… being part of the book community and having met so many people through my book blog and Goodreads…. people I would truly consider my friends, they may not know what the inside of my house looks like, or what high school I went to, but I communicate with some of my online friends more often then my real life friends…. an interesting thing to ponder, but I consider online friends real friends…
This book focuses mainly on Estelle and Constance… when the girls decide to take a spa vacation… they find out they have much more in common than being authors, Especially when it comes to their sons…. it was fun to see their friendship grow stronger and you just know they are going to be friends forever….
There was something about this book that made me feel as though I was at the spa with Estelle and Constance, and believe me I wish I were…. it sure did seem like a delightful place to visit…. this book just was a pleasure to read from start to finish…. and the ending… did not see that little twist coming… what is in store next for these girls? And what is in store for the rest of the crew? we did get little snippets of their lives via Instagram in this book… cannot wait for the next book in this little gem of a short story series….
Absolutely recommend when you are in the mood for a quick getaway red…
*** thank you to the author and Rachel at Rachels’ Random Resources for a copy of this book ***
