What They Say:
Single All the Way is the third in the Singles’ Trilogy. The first book Singles’ Holiday was set in Antigua and the second Singles & Spice set in India. In this book, 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...
Guest Post by Elaine Spires
Elaine Spires’ blog tour for the book Single All The Way is currently underway. Single All The Way is the third book in the Single’s Trilogy so I asked Elaine to tell us more about the other books in the series.
Thanks so much for asking me to join you at your blog today Jo.
Singles’ Holiday (Book 1) is set in Antigua... the Caribbean at its most luscious, its most beautiful... silver sand, cobalt sky, warm turquoise sea... and a bunch of complete strangers, who only have one thing in common: they're single. Some are looking for romance, some for something more. But they've all chosen to spend their holiday with people they have never met before. And pretty soon, some will become good friends, some enemies and some lovers. And many of them will experience things they never expected, including their tour manager Eve, who perhaps has the biggest shock of all.
It’s a story that will make you laugh and make you cry with just the right number of twists to keep you turning the pages as you get to know all the members of the group as they, in turn, get to know each other.
I have a house in Antigua so it’s wonderful to write a book which is based in a place that I love so much.
We recently finished a very successful run of the stage play of Singles’ Holiday which was held at Brentwood Theatre. It was incredible to see this book acted out on stage with another incredible and very talented cast which included ex East Ender Peter Dean. We’re hoping to take it on tour around the country, so you never know, it could be coming to a theatre by you! As you know Jo, I’m a huge Idris Elba fan (did I mention that I met him recently?) and I’d love him to play Mel who is one of the main characters of the book. Obviously if that was the case, I’d have to play Eve!
Singles & Spice (Book 2) is set around a holiday to India's Golden Triangle - Taj Mahal, the pink city ofJaipur, tiger-spotting in Ranthambore, the noisy, crowded streets of Delhi. This is a trip that is hot, humid and spicy. Eve has a couple of familiar faces in her little group of travellers and others that she hasn't met before; sexy man-eating pensioners, a compulsive over-eater, a constant whiner and a man with a personal problem.
And there's a big surprise awaiting someone -and Eve - early one morning. By the end of the tour, which sees the group travelling by coach, rickshaw, train and elephant, she will know rather more about some of their innermost secrets than she'd like. But Eve deals with all the twists and turns the trip throws at her as we come to understand what makes people travel the world with a bunch of complete strangers and appreciate the success that is a singles' holiday.
