~ Review ~
Told from the viewpoint of author Constance Jeffries, this quick read could resonate with just about anyone who’s spent time on the Internet…and made a friend.
Excited, Constance arrives at a Christmas party, about to meet some of the people she considers friends online. Since it’s her POV, we get her opinions, which is fine. But for someone who’s anxious and nervous to meet ‘friends’, her overall opinions don’t seem complimentary even before she spots them at the party.
This says as much about Constance as her views of her friends. What/who exactly was she expecting? How did she get it wrong?
This is a quick but good exploration of character and personality, and how things… and people, aren’t always as we believe them to be.
Looking forward to part 2, The Weekend Spa Break.
You are cordially invited to the party of the season where you’ll meet Constance and friends in action.
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.
The Big Event is the first part in a short story series about the importance of ‘real’ friendships and how it’s the little things that matter the most.
