Today I share my review as a part of the blog tour for The Dinner in the Sky by Anne John-Ligali. This is the third in the Friendships Online series. I recently reviewed the first two in the series here.
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…

The Dinner in the Sky is the third in the Friendships Online series. The first started as a short story, then the second graduated to a novella, and now we have a full length third novel to this series! Each in the series builds on the previous so you really need to read the previous two to know exactly what is going on.
This is a series I have enjoyed and I l really like Constance. I was rooting for her the whole time, especially when the novel went in an unexpected direction and became like a romantic comedy movie. I really did enjoy the last 25% of the novel with the rushed urgency (Go Constance, GO!!!!).
Will Constance be able to pull her life together after the ending of The Weekend Spa Break and who will she choose: Maxwell or Julio? And who is this troll that is determined to ruin Constance’s life? We do get a conclusion to all of these questions and this is a complete story.
The Friendships Online series is an enjoyable and quick read. You should read them concurrently to get the full effect. This series is recommended.
