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 …

My Thoughts

Although I was gifted the first two novellas in The Friendship Series (The Big Event and The Weekend Spa Break) I just haven’t been able to read them yet but at the beginning of this installment there is a short and sweet catch up of the story so far.  This book worked fine as a stand alone however if you want to fully understand the story and have a more in-depth knowledge of some of the characters then my suggestions would be to begin with those.  I’m really looking forward to reading them in the near future.

The Dinner in the Sky has a mixture of romance, friendship, parenthood and a little bit of a light suspense factor.  The main protagonist is Constance who is a very likable and relateable character, raising her autistic son as a single mother and trying to work on her novel whilst various things keep getting in the way such as a ex with secrets and a social media troll.  Luckily, Constance is surrounded by a characteristic and varied bunch of friends who weave their way into her story beautifully adding a touch of glamour, humour and heart along the way.

The plot is light and pacey and short chapters mean this is a great book to dip in and out of if you are short on reading time.  There are quite a few things happening in the plot which keeps you on your toes and provides a varied reading journey.

Overall, this is a sweet, fun and uplifting novel and I’m looking forward to reading the prequels.
