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... A delightful final book to round off the Singles' Trilogy. The other two books in the trilogy are Singles' Holiday and Singles and Spice.
What I Say
I would like to thank Kim Nash and Elaine Spires for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
I'm glad to be back with the familiar Travel2gether holidays of Elaine's Singles holiday books. I would certainly books singles holiday with Travel2gether especially if Eve was the Tour Guide.
Elaine openes the book at a hotel with a new group of Singles Holiday guests. Eve however isn't the tour rep this time and she isn't with them, she is at home having Christmas off for the first time in years.
The tour rep decides it isn't really for her and disappears over night, leaving the Travel2gether guests alone, they are disgruntled to day the least.. Eve is virtually forced to take over by her boss, she meet some old friends and makes some new ones. Elaine had me gasping at the antics of some of the guests, saying aw at others and even tears at some points.
I love these books by Elaine as she tells the stories from different characters POV and I always feel like I am travelling with the group. Elaine always manages to write a wonderfully different story and group with every book, we also see some old faces and some new faces. As well as talk of places and people from the other books. So come along an meet the wonderfully interesting characters from this book.
This is a really festive read and makes me want to go on a singles holiday again, but only if Eve is the tour rep. I'm also sad this is the last in the series but I hope Elaine will consider writing more in the future.
