Summary

It’s their party....

Meet Melissa and Paul: Five years after they split up he’s still looking for love in all the wrong places while she wants the one thing she can’t have: Paul.

Meet Chris and Vicky: They’re so in tune they even brush their teeth in time with each other. So what is Chris doing risking it all for a meaningless affair?

Meet Cooper and Laura: He wants to settle down, she wants to take a grown-up gap year – but can their relationship really survive a year apart?

Set across a year of leaving dos, birthday parties, and anniversary celebrations, The Life and Soul of the Party is a warm, funny and moving tale celebrating love, life, and those special moments we’ve all spent in the kitchen at parties. (Multiple narrators.)

Good easy listen

Entertaining story about a group of twenty-somethings' relationships - not groundbreaking but worth listening to.
