This is an absolutely engaging, humorous and delightful book, a comedy of hilarious errors caused by assumptions and situations arising from an innocent dinner party’s unexpected guest. Simon, the guest, wrecks havoc both innocently and inadvertently, on the lives of the couples at the dinner. There is longsuffering, bored with her life Sarah, never satisfied witchy Marie, lost in a tiresome life Beth, arrogant snobby Tony, likeable Duncan, and clueless but nice Chris. Simon throws the whole dynamic out of whack causing cracks and fault lines to unzip. It is such a funny book!
