The Waitress, Paperback / softback Book


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.
