‘Quirky, cute and utterly romantic’ – Bestselling author Rebecca Raisin
Monique and Issy are teachers, housemates and lovers of musicals! Their Friday night routine consists of snacks, wine and the Frozen DVD. So when Monique’s boyfriend moves to America for a year and her sister Hope moves in because of her own relationship woes, Friday nights get a new name… ‘The Singalong Society for Singletons’!
It’s a chance to get together, sing along to their favourite tracks from the best-loved West End shows, and forget the worries of work, relationships and love (or lack of it). But when Issy shares the details of their little group further afield, they get some unexpected new members who might just change their opinions on singledom for good….
Each chapter in the novel, includes under the chapter heading, the musical that is chosen by the different characters. I actually loved this as being a big fan of musicals, I found myself humming away to my favourite songs from the shows. So every get together brings a different musical to life, loved it!
The story line for me is very much about friendships and bonds that have formed between the characters. They all have something different going on in their lives and with each chapter it was like catching up with your old friends.
There is a great mixture of characters in the story. Mon (Monique) being the main one stands out more but the rest of the gang also very much play their part and helps bring the story very much to live.
The main thread in the story is Mon’s love life. She loves Justin her boyfriend, but having him go to America to work for a year starts to take it’s toll on their relationship and it leaves Mon very confused to how she actually feels for him. Though there is definitely some romance going on in the book, I actually love that it isn’t to heavy on the romance and it’s more about the friendships and keeps it very much fun and light hearted.
The Singalong Society for Singletons is a great read for the musical lovers among us that enjoy story lines of friendships with a sprinkling of romance in them. Even though it can be enjoyed at any time of the year, as this is the festive season where we tend to sit and watch lots of musical on the television, I think it is even more so perfect for this time of year.
Highly enjoyable and entertaining.
