Singles and Spice (Singles' Series, Book 2) by Elaine Spires ~ @rararesources @ElaineSWriter #Review

Singles and Spice

A singles' holiday to India's Golden Triangle - Taj Mahal, the pink city of Jaipur, tiger-spotting in Ranthambore, the noisy, crowded streets of Delhi - all go to make up a trip that is hot, humid and spicy. Eve Mitchell, Travel Together's tour manager extraordinaire 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 our 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.

My Review:

Singles and Spice is a great book that takes place in an exotic location - India. 

I enjoyed visiting all the locations in this second book in Elaine Spires' Singles' Series.

I enjoyed Singles and Spice. Each guest has a story and I liked learning their stories as the book moved along. Descriptive prose, wonderfully crafted characters, and an interesting setting pulled me into the book and kept me engaged. The author's writing had me feeling like I was in India with each guest. The story is told realistically, was believable, and not all sunshine and roses. The author wove in a tragic event that gutted me. So much emotion in this book.

I was provided a copy of this book.

Extensive travelling and a background in education and tourism perfected Elaine's keen eye for the quirky characteristics of people, captivating the humorous observations she now affectionately shares with the readers of her novels. Elaine’s Singles’ Series has its roots in her background as a tour manager for a UK tour operator.
