Review: The Singalong Society For Singletons by Katey Lovell

It’s Monday and it’s grey, wet and windy here – so I thought, what better than to bring you news of a book that will cheer you up, make you feel warm and cosy and get you humming your way through your week.

The Singalong Society For Singletons by Katey Lovell follows the relationship highs, lows and flatlines of close friends Monique, Issy and Connie. When Monique’s long-term boyfriend heads off to the USA to focus on his career for a year leaving her high and dry and in a complete quandary as to whether there is still a relationship there between them, she comforts her broken heart by filling her Friday nights with friends, wine, nibbles… and of course, musicals.

Very soon, their little society expands to welcome new members- Mon’s sister Hope… and two rather dashing young actors – who quickly add a very different edge to their Friday evenings.

What did I love about it? Not a page went by without having a song stuck in my head. Beware the ear-worms – seriously! It can be very distracting if you’re reading just before sleep. And thank you Katey for introducing me to a bunch of musicals I haven’t listened to before. Also, I completely fell for Ray – his character is truly swoon-worthy.

This is a sweet story of friendship and finding yourself – set to a seriously catchy score!

The ebook is out 7th October, followed by the paperback on the 15th December. Click below to pre-order!


The Blurb:
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…
