Thank you to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for giving me the opportunity to review Single All The Way by Elaine Spires
Travel Together Tour Manager Eve Mitchell is planning a quiet Christmas at home to rest and relax before a special New Year. But she soon, very unexpectedly, finds herself in the depths of the Essex countryside looking after a singles’ group which contains some old, familiar faces and some pleasant – and not so pleasant – new ones. With its country walks, quizzes, disco and black-tie ball, the Christmas and Twixmas Break passes quickly, but just as they think it’s all over the plot takes a twist and we learn some dark secrets…
This is part of a trilogy but it can be read as a standalone. There are plenty of character in this book but you don’t get confused as to who is who, the way in which Elaine has written them makes you clearly remember them. I liked how the chapters were named as how many day, it showed how the story progressed. I enjoyed reading Single All The Way, it was a wonderfully festive read. I always enjoy Elaine’s Writing.
