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 …
Constance has 99 problems, and men are ALL of them...if you've ever need to be scared off dating, this may be the book for you. Poor Constance can't catch a break with all the cheaters and deadbeats that surround her. She barely has time to care for her autistic son.
The characters here are lively and interesting, though I struggled a little to keep track of everyone. Although this is a standalone novel, I wish I'd read the earlier books first. With so many pre-established characters, I felt on the outside of the circle. I also struggled to bond with the romantic interest since I never saw him being a good guy before he was the cause of so much distress for Constance.
There is some good plot dynamic here and it's well-paced. The tension kept the book moving forward by dropping new clues often enough. Constance carries the book well, even if I did think she was a little old for all the drama (but hey - that's why most protagonists are in their early 20s, right?). I was happy for her triumphs and sad for her losses, which is more than enough to make for an entertaining summer read.
