Wednesday 26th September marked the Publication Day of Dinner Party by Tracy Bloom (Bookouture).

This romantic comedy is the latest offering from an author who has had huge success with previous books, including the No One Ever Has Sex..series, and The Last Laugh.

And now, you are all invited to a Dinner Party: 

Beth, Sarah and Marie have been friends forever. Now they are grown up, with busy lives, busy husbands, busy kids… but they still find time to meet up over dinner once a month. A cosy, comfortable gathering of happy couples – or so they thought.

Until one night, someone brings along a last-minute guest whose wife has just left him. 

Simon is standing on the doorstep in floods of tears. While the women do their best to console him, their husbands feel the need to mark their territory.

And as Simon becomes more involved with the group, his presence changes everything these three couples thought they knew about each other, leading to a final dinner party that no-one will ever forget.

Dinner Party is a funny and moving read that will make you see your marriage and friendships in a whole new light… and make you think twice about inviting your best mates round for dinner.

Perfect for fans of Marian Keyes, Nick Spalding and Gill Sims.
