Singles, Set and Match by Elaine Spires #Review

Today, I am delighted to feature Singles, Set and Match which is the fifth and final book in Elaine Spires' Singles Series, I read it as a standalone which was fine. 

Singles, Set and Match takes us to the  Mediterranean island of Ibiza then back to the Caribbean island of Antigua, where it all began. 

After making a hard decision two years earlier Eve Mitchell has moved on with the hand that life has dealt her and she finds herself on the White Island working a tennis holiday.  While it isn’t a job she would have chosen, in her typical pragmatic way Eve gets on with it, working hard to ensure that her diverse group of singles, with their hopes, expectations character flaws and baggage, have the best time possible.  And as she binds together tennis sessions, social gatherings, meals and trips Eve hears some tragic personal news that brings her to another crossroads in her life. 

 Will she and the love of her life Melv finally make a life together and live happily ever after?

My Thoughts

You are taken over to Ibiza for this summer read. I hadn't read any of the series and though as a standalone, the book is enjoyable, I am sure that I would have picked up on the subtleties behind how Eve was feeling if I had read some of the others. The ending was certainly a shock and most definitely not what I was expecting.
    It took me some time to get used to following so many people but once I was accustomed, it was fine. Eve is a fascinating character and there are lots of big personalities amongst her party of tourists. The writing is a mixture of sad and hilarious moments which actually probably mirrors real life, doesn't it? I enjoyed reading about Ibiza as the party travelled about and it definitely feels like a holiday read.

In short: Travel to Ibiza for some summer fun!
