Two Scoops Too Much
By Terri Boas
Today I am delighted to present my review of Two Scoops Too Much. Unfortunately a bit later than scheduled due to work commitments and recent illness. Find out about this meatier than the title suggests, book below in the blurb and my thoughts in my review below…
I thank the author for the lovely message and ice cream chocolates and Rachel Random Resources for organising and inviting me to the blog tour.
Three’s a crowd, but not when it comes to best mates, Briony, Natalie and Lauren. As they tipsily toast the future down their favourite local, the Red Lion, the girls have never felt closer. For Briony and Lauren at least, being intimate friends has taken on a whole new meaning. But as things between them heat up, does that mean they’ll need to put a label on their relationship?And will their provocative plot to wreak revenge on Briony’s devious ex-lover, Mani, work out, or succeed only in putting her professional reputation on the line? Meanwhile, Natalie’s affair with her sexy spin instructor, Jason, is now firmly behind her, and she isdetermined to keep the sparks flying with her loyal hubby, Martin. That is until a girls’ trip to a swanky London hotel reveals her head and her heart are still at dangerous odds; an epiphany that will have dire consequences. As the friends unite in the face of an unbearable tragedy, they’ll need each other–and ice cream–more than ever before . .
There is much drama in Two Scoops Too Much, that is enthralling. It is easy to get caught up in the lives of friends – Briony, Lauren and Natalie.
The book is about relationships, in-terms of close friendships and love. There are ups and downs and some serious moments and the question whether the relationships formed can survive or not. There are big, weighty topics amongst some of the more lighter times. With humour amongst some meaty subject matters, makes this pretty entertaining.
Not all of the characters have healthy, good mental health, so poor mental health is a feature.
You can get under the skin of each character in their work, relationships and possible futures.
From the office to a swanky hotel, which is absolutely lush, gives some great settings. You also get to know the local pub and homes too as passions and breakdowns become apparent.
As life events become increasingly challenging, especially one that will really rock them to the core, it is interesting to see how they then try to navigate their lives.
Overall, it is an engaging book, with compelling characters. It’s a good book that will go well with icecream.
