Working It Out

Nicola May


Ruby Matthews has a plan. Twelve jobs in twelve months, until she finds the one of her dreams…

From the bestselling author of the Cockleberry Bay and Ferry Lane Market series

After redundancy, Ruby launches a mission to find the ideal job.

Her year of gainful (and sometimes painful) employment includes: nannying in the South of France; dealing with embarrassing ailments in a Harley Street clinic; waiting tables in a buzzy Soho café; and meeting celebs of years gone by in a home for retired actors. And, although love is no longer top of her list, relationships start happening along the way – which sees her handing out some P45s of her own.

Will any of the jobs – or men she meets – see her dreams come true? Or will Ruby end up back where she started?





‘Nicola May writes with heart, soul and a whole lot of sauce’
