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…

My Thoughts

I loved everything about this book and I am so pleased that I signed up to join the tour. My girlfriends and I often go on spa overnight stays to celebrate special occasions and birthdays so I really related to some aspects of this story and how the girls bonded and changed over their stay at the super posh spa. 

It was really refreshing to read about characters of a more mature age.  Many people I know in their 60s and feisty and so much fin and spirited and it was wonderful to see this reflected in The Spa Break.  All four women are so lovely and so very different but all have their own issues, uncertainties and insecurities going on.  They also all deal with these in different ways.  I loved them all but I must say that Marjory hilarious and was my absolute favourite.

All the other characters add so much depth to the girls’ experiences and journeys too whether they are in full support or of a more antagonistic disposition. 

I enjoyed the journey that each lady went on over the space of a weekend and how much it impacted their lives.  They all benefitted so much from the time, experience and each other’s friendships and it just totally warmed my heart.  This book really gave me all the fuzzies and lots of laughs and I adored it.

Highly recommended for an afternoon of joy and a warm hug in a book.
