Publisher's Summary

Ruby Matthews has a plan - 12 jobs in 12 months, until she finds the one of her dreams....

After an unexpected redundancy, Ruby begins to question her priorities. Inspired by a quote from Kahlil Gibran about loving your work, she launches her mission to find the ideal job. 

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

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

Story ok performance annoying voice just not good to listen to. Story is ok

Narrators voice is just not good. Goes up at the end of every sentence. Also she’d never have gone for George. Idea of the different jobs was novel

Really good story. Easy listening.

Great story for when you are on a drive.

It's the story of a young woman who, after being made redundant, decides to try out 12 different jobs over 12 months.

The story is really good and well paced, the only downside is accellerates and ends rapidly, it would have been nice to draw all parts to a close over an additional chapter or two. I won't say how as that would spoil the story.

All in all, excellent.
