#PublicationDayPush #Review ~ The Big Event by @AnneJohnLigali @rararesources @BooksNAuthorsUK

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 first part in a short story series about the importance of ‘real’ friendships and how it’s the little things that matter the most.

My Review

I was pleasantly surprised by this short story. I did wonder how such a small piece of work would capture my attention and provide any worthy entertainment. How wrong I was to prejudge! 

The whole concept of meeting the ‘friends’ you find online will probably ring true with many people. You may share your deepest secrets and believe the relationships are true and meaningful but do you really gain an insight into that other person until you meet face to face or get to witness their behaviour unseen?

Constance is certain she knows each of the people she will be seeing at The Big Event and they will undoubtedly return her feelings. This is a wonderful little story that delves a bit further and portrays the real issues. It’s not always the person we first think of that will be the remarkable influence.

I really enjoyed this cleverly written tale, it’s fun but also has serious undertones and opens up a whole new series which I look forward to reading. Set aside five minutes and I think you will also be pleasantly surprised.

Thanks to the author and Rachel’s Random Resources for my copy which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
