Never has an unexpected guest caused such chaos!
Three couples take it in turns to host a monthly 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.
Thank you to Bookouture for my copy of this book via Netgalley and for letting me take part in this tour. I first read one of Tracy’s books last October and I haven’t looked back since.
This book follows 3 couples as they rotate for their regular dinner parties. When Chris invites an unexpected guest, no one expected the consequences that ensued.
Chris was my favourite character, never have I known someone to be so obsessed with dips! He was also very funny. He somehow he manages to get himself in the most ridiculous and entertaining situations.
Each chapter is headed with a different characters name and focuses on that character. There is also an interview Q&A with a character and a journalist which are rather funny.
This book is Tracy at her best. She creates real characters with real problems throwing in some absolutely hilarious moments. You will be hooked from the first chapter to the last with the mystery in this book.
