I picked this up with no pre-conceptions. I liked the sound of the story and had a long train journey ahead of me and literally picked this up by chance.
The story follows Ruby, who unexpectedly loses her job. She decides to join a recruitment agency with a very specific plan in mind - 12 jobs in 12 months. She will then pick her favourite at the end! Throw in a few romances along the way and a cat named Patrick and you have 'working it out.'
I really enjoyed this book and found the story very engaging. There are some hilarious moments and I found myself keen to see where Ruby's adventures took us next! Ruby herself is a likeable character and I was really rooting for her, particularly with her relationship with George.
Some bits of the book are quite rude and crass but you get used to that. If easily offended though, this might not be for you.
I had no idea this was self published but I was eager to pick it up which is the sign of a good novel for me. I am pleased to see there are many more Nicola May books for me to try, including a sequel to this one.
