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….
First of all if you love musicals then this book is definitely for you! There were a few mentioned that I haven't seen yet. So it was interesting to learn about them from the characters point of view.
The characters were all well written and I got attached to each and every one of them. I loved the friendships that they all shared. Liam has to be my favourite, as the story progresses we get to know his character really well. First impressions aren't always true.
Before I knew it I was halfway through, my attention was well and truly captured. This story deals with some deeper issues but is also packed full of fun to balance things out. There is also a lovely heart warming feel to it. I especially enjoyed the Rocky Horror reference. I saw it at the Lyceum with my husband a few years ago and it really is worth going to see!
The Singalong Society for Singletons has a wonderful selection of characters and a very entertaining story!
Five stars from me!
