Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
After a shocking confrontation with an unexpected encounter, Constance tries to piece her life back together and is on a mission to finally move on.
The thought of having her friends near is comforting as they take time out of their busy online lives and meet up at their favourite place, A Cupful of Dreams Café. Everyone seems happy enough until cracks begin to show and all is not as good as it seems. Constance tries desperately to keep positive as there’s so much to look forward to: shopping for posh frocks, dinner at The Shard and a movie premiere.
As things start to look rosy, a few odd tweets begin to pop up from nowhere. At first, they seem innocent, but as the weeks go by and premier night draws near, not only do the tweets increase but they become more obnoxious.
By the time Constance and her chums arrive on the red carpet, she’s determined to work out who the troll could be and to keep them from spoiling her evening. However as Constance soon learns, the troll wants to destroy far more than that!
Breathtaking views of London.
Posh frocks and Paparazzi
But there’s definitely trouble in the air …
This is the third story in this series, featuring Constance, her family and friends. I am pleased to say that I’d read the earlier two books before reading this and suspect that really helped me enjoy this book more than if I’d tried to read it as a standalone as the stories involve the same characters and follow on from each other. Now, the difficult thing in this review is not to reveal anything that happened in any of the books so I don’t spoil it for anyone tempted to read them all, so I’m going to be deliberately vague about what happens in any of them! I will say that Constance is a single Mum and author doing her very best to bring up her son, Charlie, who is severely autistic and lovely. She is supported by her Mum and a group of friends. . . . .
I love this eclectic mix of friends, they’re definitely not a group you’d automatically assume were so supportive of each other but it really works! Their get togethers at A Cupful of Dreams Café are often hilarious encounters and have me laughing out loud at times, especially as Adelios strives to join in conversations with idioms that are very nearly but aren’t quite right. This story has potential romances for some of the group, two ex partners and a potential new love causing emotional drama for Constance, an online troll causing problems, dramatic cover reveals, a premier to get ready for and attend, dinner in the sky and so much more! It is a heartwarming tale with a lovely twist at the end as secrets are discovered, romance is rescued and love finds a way to heal broken hearts and dreams.
I requested and was gifted a copy of this story and this is my honest review after choosing to read it.
