The Big Event || Weekend Blitz

Constance Jeffries is excited when she gets the chance to meet up with virtual friends at a get-together in a London hotel.
She’s been tweeting and messaging her lovely friends for years and feels they must be just as excited to finally meet her in person too. Or so she hopes.

 A short story about the importance of ‘real’ friendships and how it’s the little things that matter the most.



Review

For those who didnt stop by, i was involved in the cover reveal for The Big Event so was excited to be invited on to the blog tour for this wonderfully sassy short read. Constance Jeffries is super excited to head to a get together in London where she will meet all her online friends, those she has been tweeting with for many years, what a chance to put real life faces to names. She arms herself with gifts for her online friends ready for a big catch up & bookish chat. (Sounds perfect to me)

However not is all it seems as she circles the room and starts to spot the familiar faces she has longed to meet, first impressions are not what she expects and is a real shock to her. How different people can be in real life compared to the internet, how literally the interactions she has just had have already been reported different.

Constance is really ready to call off the night and leave when an unexpected friend changes everything, especially when she had no expectations. This is a short story of how little things in friendships matter more than those bigger things.  It was a lovely short narrative that got straight to the point and addressed the issues. I just hope all us book bloggers are not like some we met!
