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 …

This is book #3 in the Friendships Online series. I would recommend reading the other two short story books in the series first to understand the story fully, although I’m sure it could be read as a standalone if you don’t mind a few spoilers!
It’s a welcome return to A Cupful of Dreams café and Constance who is trying to move her life on following events which happened in the previous books. One thing she does have to look forward to is dinner at The Shard and a movie premiere, although she does find it very difficult to remain upbeat. As the weeks leading up to the premiere pass by, Constance begins to receive unpleasant tweets, and she is determined to find out who is behind them.
It was lovely to be back in the company of Constance and her friends again following the two short stories which I’ve read previously. One of things that drew my attention to this book was the absolutely fabulous cover!! The colours were so eye-catching and it was that attractive that I’m sure I could hear it shouting ‘Read Me!’
I won’t give too much away in this review for fear of spoilers for all three of the books, but it’s safe to say this was my favourite one out of the three! I love Constance’s character and all of her group of friends are just so well suited to each other. The extended circle of friends initially come across as the types of people who wouldn’t mix well together, but strangely enough they all work together!! I love the setting of this instalment as well, with the magnificent building of The Shard featuring in it and it made me feel jealous as I really want to go there!
It was the perfect romantic fairy-tale, the only thing that was missing was the Ugly Sisters! Full of love, friendships, glitz and glamour this would make the ideal summer read! Would definitely recommend!
