My Rating: 5 out of 5
The fifth and final book in the Singles’ Series 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?
I loved this book – I couldn’t put it down!
I really loved this book so much – even though I haven’t read any of the other books in the series, it doesn’t matter, as this book introduces you to all the main characters so well, it almost is a standalone book in itself.
I loved getting to know each of the characters stories who were on the tennis holiday, and the reasons behind why they had chosen to go on a singles holiday in the first place, but I really loved how Eve’s story was woven into the every day goings on of the tennis holiday, and I felt like I got to know the character of Eve really well.
Singles, Set and Match is such a fun read, I couldn’t put it down! I wanted to find out what happened to each character and especially with eve as well. The story has some wonderfully written and funny characters, and I am sure most people will be able to identify with at least one character in the story.
Singles, Set and Match is full of love, laughs, fun, reflection and tennis! I would absolutely recommend Singles, set and Match to anyone – the perfect summertime read, and just in time for Wimbledon! Tennis anyone?!
