About the Book

“Ben had the hostesses put sixteen and fourteen together, so it’s a six-top now. He said he didn’t care which one of us took it.” Katelyn blinked at me, as if waiting for some kind of answer, but I wasn’t entirely sure what she had just said.

Have you ever worked in a restaurant? I have. And, I hated every second of it. I lasted three months. I was OK taking orders. I was OK serving food. I was OK when people wanted orders made special. I was even OK when hostesses put massive amounts of tables together and parties came in with like 30 people. But I was not OK when people treated me like I was their slave. And, I really hated when I worked my butt off and got mere change as a tip. I actually learned a lot about people in the three months I worked in a restaurant. It was a very eye-opening experience.

Now, about this book! One of my most favorite tropes in all of literature is when the regular gal gets the “it” guy. I love these stories so much. When I read the summary for this book, I knew I had to read it ASAP. Now, I just need time to read!!! I’m feeling like my TBR mountain has taken over my life. LOL!

    I’ve never worked in a restaurant, but just watching the waiters and waitresses, I have mixed feelings about the job. It’s definitely a high-pressure job and they deserve their 20% tip. On my blog, I’m featuring Hillbrooke, God’s Rewrite by Beverely Joy Roberts. This is such a great series and she’s quite the storyteller. Have a wonderful weekend!

    My first lines are friom The Artful Match by Jennifer Delamere:
    Venezuala, August, 1881

    Julia Bernay Stephenson watched as her father carefully stirred honey into his coffee. For years she had thought he was dead, and now, even though it had been a week since she’d found him alive, she still looked at him with wondering eyes.

    Yes, I was a shift manager at two fast food joints! I will never go back nor recommend it to my worst enemy! Glad those days are over!

    I worked as a pantry chef, but I didn’t stay long… I’m sharing from Up from the Sea by Amanda Dykes on my blog today. This is the first line from my current read, In the Shadow of Croft Towers by Abigail Wilson:

    “I often wonder what my life would have been like if I had never learned the truth.”

    Happy Friday!
