The Thunder Girls – by Melanie Blake

The blurb: 
Chrissie, Roxanne, Carly and Anita, an eighties pop sensation outselling and out-classing their competition. Until it all comes to an abrupt end and three of their careers are over, and so is their friendship.
Thirty years later, their old record label wants the band back together for a huge money-making concert. But the wounds are deep and some need this gig more than others.
In those decades apart life was far from the dream they were living as members of The Thunder Girls. Breakdowns, bankruptcy, addiction and divorce have been a constant part of their lives. They’ve been to hell and back, and some are still there.
Can the past be laid to rest for a price, or is there more to this reunion than any of them could possibly know? Whilst they all hunger for a taste of success a second time around, someone is plotting their downfall in the deadliest way possible . . .

My Opinion:

Book provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review

I really loved the sound of this book from the start, sadly it didn’t live up to my expectations. It was very different to what I expected and that’s probably why I couldn’t get into this book. 

The idea of this book is fabulous, but the sparks just didn’t fly. Chrissie, Roxanne, Carly and Anitacome together again after 30 years for a concert of their band The Thunder Girls. 

This calls for a lot of drama and it certainly included a lot o fit. It was fab to get an inside to the world of showbiz and music, 
I couldn’t connect to the main characters though , which is a shame. I felt like they were not very well lined out and I struggled wanting to follow their steps. 

All in all, I enjoyed the story and it was an interesting read, but it was just not for me.
