Excerpt
 The Single Best Thing is set four years into the future from the end of Singles, Set and Match (the fifth book in the Singles’ Series) and moves back and forth through the events that have happened during that time.

This extract is the first flashback scene in the book:

1st September 2019

Eve had watched the letter burn until it was nothing but ash. She felt as if she had finally laid down the load she’d been carrying on her shoulders for the past two years and it felt good. Sitting in the damp garden, enjoying the smell of the wet lawn and the summer flowers, she rolled her shoulders back and forth feeling physically lighter.

The truth is finally out there!

And although she hadn’t told Melv himself, the Universe knew.  She had admitted what she had done and now she could move forward with her life.  She had to let go of Melv and Rosetta and their unborn child.  None of that was any of her business any longer.  She knew she couldn’t cut Melv out of her life completely because of their son Michael; he would forever be the tie that bound them. But with Melv in Antigua and she and Michael and his lovely little family in England there was hardly any reason for their paths ever to cross in the future.

Heavy spots of rain started to fall again but she didn’t move.  She let the summer shower work its magic, washing over her and hopefully taking a little of her guilt and shame and anguish with it.  She stood under the deluge until it began to ease and then drenched and dripping she stepped inside.  She dried off and slipped into her pyjamas and finally climbed the stairs to her bedroom.  But once again sleep evaded her.  After half an hour of tossing and turning she got up and made herself a herbal tea and took it back to bed.
