The heroine is a woman with a personality which will strike a chord with many readers. She's funny, neurotic, strong willed and, yes on occasion, annoying and selfish, but who isn't? This is something Melissa Nathan was particularly good at; even though her heroines are all quite different she breathes real life into them and this humanity is what gives her books their warmth and vibrancy.
Kate can't quite decide what to do with her life, and matters are complicated further by -- you've guessed it -- a man. Not just any man either; he's her new boss. What follows is an engaging, realistic story which has plenty of laughs and some real poignancy and emotion, not forgetting some really well written romance. Highly recommended!
I think that kate (main charactor) relates to most people as she constantly changes her mind about what she wants to do with her life (a bit like myself) At one point i was laughing the next i was crying and had to put the book down to wipe my eyes thats how good it is. After reading this book i am now going to read mellissa nathens other books. Enjoy the read. michelle
You can relate to this story really well. You will find it very hard to put down as it is such an excellent plot and will involve you all the way through. Excellent charcters that you really feel you get to know and a very interesting read. A brilliant love story: it will put you in a great mood. You may get lost in it.
My high expectations of this book from all of nathan's previuos books perhaps clouded my jugdement of the waitress slighty. it is still entertaining, funny and a good read but not as to the same brilliance as The Nanny.
I am constantly engrossed in the chick-lit world, most probably due to the reason shared by many: we aspire to these characters. Being a student, I thoroughly understand career woes. The wonder, the confusion, the worry of where I will be ten years down the line...a lot of us have been there. And it was somewhat refreshing to see a novel boasting a future-confused heroine, as opposed to the office-based, high-flying city girls in the majority of these stories who appear to have it all, though obviously not - they're SO unlucky because the equally-successful boss they like doesn't love them back. The horror.
Heroine Kate Simmonds is a waitress. Not that she actually wishes to remain a waitress. But she has yet to decide on a career she is happy with, and one which will please her old-fashioned mother. Privately-educated Katie dreams of owning her own restaraunt and being her own boss. But the cafe in which she works is about to be taken over - by the man who she left in a restaraunt a week or so before after a disatrous date.
There is love in all chick-lit books, but I usually give the obviously lovey-dovey ones a miss.Read more ›
