A warmly compassionate, amusing and very readable story, with extra sprinkles of fairytale sparkle. Jan Brigden is the winner of the 2014-2015 Choc Lit & Whole Story Audiobooks Search for a Star competition, and this is her debut novel. 31 year old Rebecca is concerned about her marriage, as are her family and friends, she is persuaded to go on a weekend away with her friend Abi. After meeting a footballing star, Rebecca finds herself re-evaluating her life and the meaning of love. Rebecca and Abi are engaging characters, warm and likeable, it’s easy to stow away in their suitcases for the weekend. It’s also refreshing to hear the other side, Rebecca and Abi’s partners are away themselves and their thoughts and feelings add balance to the story. ‘As Weekends Go’ encourages you to join these girls on their trip, to believe in them, cheer them on, and wish them them happiness as their story reaches a well-deserved end. ~ Liz Robinson

As Weekends Go by Jan Brigden
What if your entire life changed in the space of a weekend? When Rebecca's friend Abi convinces her to get away from it all at the fabulous Hawksley Manor hotel in York, it seems too good to be true. Pampering and relaxation is just what Rebecca needs to distract herself from the creeping suspicion that her husband, Greg, is hiding something from her. She never imagined that by the end of the weekend she would have dined with celebrities or danced the night away in exclusive clubs. Nor could she have predicted she would meet famous footballer, Alex Heath, or that he would be the one to show her that she deserved so much more ...But no matter how amazing a weekend is, it's always back to reality come Monday morning - isn't it?
