Dinner Party by Tracy Bloom. Review by Sara Mayos

Published by Bookouture, an imprint of StoryFire Ltd, September 2018.

Please fasten your seat belts. Tracy Bloom is an accomplished writer of humour and has 7 other published books in the same genre.

 

She exposes, through three main characters, the frustrations, deceptions and insecurities that frequently sit inside normal married life. Three couples who know each well, take it in turns to host a dinner party and soon the criticisms, bickering, asides and recriminations often bubble to the surface.

 

A hunk is unexpectedly thrown into this mixture, invited by one of the guests, who felt sorry for him, due to his wife having dumped him. All the women ogle at the new arrival, with his well developed physique.

 

Old jealousies and rivalries emerge, claws come out and its more than the food that gets roasted. The husbands try to hatch a plan to get rid of him.

 

A flying bomb explodes amongst the group when the hunk’s ex, the saucy Candice, arrives on the scene.

 

A lively entertaining read.
