Blog Tour - The Spa Break by Caroline James
The Spa Break - The laugh-out-loud romantic comedy of the year for fans of The Book Club
with Jane Fonda & Judy Leigh!
A weekend at the spa will leave four old friends with a whole lot more than they’d bargained for…
The glossy brochure promised a serene experience of total tranquillity and rejuvenation, but what best friends Bridgette, Emily, Serena and Marjory get is a weekend that upends their lives!
There for a girls’ weekend to celebrate Bridgette’s impending seventieth birthday, the spa soon has these spicy sexagenarians realising that there are unexpected benefits to age and experience, and that over the hill certainly doesn’t mean out of the game…in any respect…
I love stories where the protagonists are older - the characters are often more colourful and they have a wealth of experience behind them. That's not to say that they don't share similar fears, hang-ups and insecurities as their younger counterparts, or face the same issues.
That said, they also had additional ones, such as being expected to act their age (pish!) and becoming invisible to younger people. And boy do these ladies have their issues! But it's amazing what a weekend away from the humdrum sameness of home can do, and it certainly does a lot for these four. They went into the spa weekend with a certain mindset and all of them came out of the other side having grown and developed.
Mind you, for one of the characters at least, it might have had something to do with a certain vitamin drink... ;)
A laugh from start to finish, this book shows you that although you grow older in years, you don't have to grow older in attitude.
