Jo Platt, Working it Out (Canello 2022)


When her love life crashed down around her, Edie turned to work for solace. But office life goes downhill with the departure of her work wife, Ruby, and the arrival of new guy Cameron - a chauvinist, a womaniser and the very opposite of a team player. But is Cameron the bad guy he seems to be?

When a best-forgotten ex decides to get back in touch, Edie's work life, love life and home life are on a collision course. Exactly what she will be able to salvage from the twisted wreckage, is anybody's guess.

A funny and feel-good romance for fans of Mhairi McFarlane and Jo Watson.

I loved this book. It is sweet and funny in places. Cameron and Edie may be the main protagonists but it is as much an ensemble piece as anything else. Edie's cousin Giles was adorable and I enjoyed the romantic build-up between him and Kerry more than I did with Edie and Cameron. 
Edie and Cameron spend a lot of time disliking the other over a misunderstanding and it seemed to take ages for it to get resolved and for them to develop a friendship. 
I liked the humour in the book and the banter between all the supporting characters- Giles's neighbours were particularly eccentric and fun.
This book may be less romance driven than other Rom-coms but that's not necessarily a bad thing. 
An entertaining read. I would happily pick up another book by the author.
