The first book Singles’ Holiday was set in Antigua and a lot of the reviews had the reviewers saying that they felt like they’d actually been on the holiday themselves. I definitely did and I'm really pining to visit Antigua! Eve is a tour leader for a singles holiday company and Elaine’s terrific sense of humour, descriptions of glorious settings that she makes come alive and quite emotional topics covered, mixed together make for excellent reading.
Singles and Spice is set in India and has some new faces as well as a few familiar ones and it really made me pleased to meet the characters again and meet the new ones. The way that Elaine describes the people, the places and the personalities gives you an incredible insight into the characters and I have to say made me want to ring the holiday company and book straight away!
Elaine's books are so entertaining. She really is a great writer. She manages to write humour, with tons of emotion thrown in along the way. I literally put down Singles' Holiday down and picked up Singles and Spice straight away! I couldn't wait to read more about Eve, this amazing tour leader and all round lovely person, that I felt I knew so well. Once again, I felt like I'd had a holiday and have seen the sights and sounds of India, a place that I'd not really got on my "places to visit" list until now! Now I'd love to go and experience it for myself.
I'm missing Eve already! Elaine is one of those authors who cannot write quick enough for me and I can't wait to read the next in the trilogy. I don't want to say the last, because I'd like to encourage her to keep on writing this series. Singles' Holiday is being made into a play which can be seen later in the year and a pilot for TV is also being made! I cannot wait to see that! I have the cast already set in my mind!
