Waitress by Melissa Nathan

Book Description

Katie Simmonds wants to be a film director. Last week she wanted to be a writer, the week before that an educational psychologist, and the week before that a florist. One thing Katie isn't short of is ambition, but she knows for certain that none of her ambitions are to be a waitress. Unfortunately, Katie Simmonds is a waitress. Hassled by customers, badly paid and stuck with the boss from hell, Katie's life hasn't turned out quite as she'd planned. As for relationships, she's starting to discover that a career choice isn't the only commitment she has problems with. But just when she thinks that things can't get any worse, the cafe where she works is taken over by the last man in the world she wants to see again. Maybe Katie's been waiting at tables - and waiting for Mr Right - for a little too long...A heartwarming, laugh out loud novel about love, hopes, dreams...and waitressing.

Acting Up by Melissa Nathan Acting Up, Paperback (March 2008)

When journalist Jasmin Field lands the coveted role of Elizabeth Bennet in one-off adaptation of "Pride and Prejudice" she discovers that the play's director, Hollywood heart-throb Harry Noble, is every bit as obnoxious as she could have hoped. Which means a lot of material for her column. And a lot of fun in rehearsals. And then disaster strikes.

Persuading Annie by Melissa Nathan Persuading Annie, Paperback (August 2007)

Jake Mead had been Annie Markham's entire world, even though her godmother had tried to persuade her to dump him. Jake's hasty departure from her life proved that godmothers are cleverer than they look and the only thing reliable about men is that they're totally unreliable. Now, Jake is back in her life.

Learning Curve by Melissa Nathan Learning Curve, Paperback (August 2006)

Ms Hobbs, a teacher at the local primary school, is idolised by her class - in particular ten-year-old Oscar Samuels. Mr Samuels is a frazzled single father working all the hours to provide for his beloved son, Oscar. Ms Hobbs knows Mr Samuels is a heartless workaholic. Mr Samuels is certain Ms Hobbs is an interfering busybody.

Nanny by Melissa Nathan Nanny, Paperback (January 2003)

When Jo takes a nannying job in London to escape her small-town routine, complicated family, and perfect-on-paper boyfriend, culture shock doesn't even begin to describe it. Dick and Vanessa Fitzgerald are the most incompatible pair since Tom and Jerry, and their children are downright mystifying. Suddenly, village life seems terribly appealing.
