Sometimes life just takes the biscuit …
Abby Spencer knows she can come across as an airhead – she talks too much and is a bit of a klutz – but there’s more to her than that. Though she sacrificed her career to help raise her sisters, a job interview at biscuit company Crumbs could finally be her chance to shine. That’s until she hurries in late wearing a shirt covered in rusk crumbs, courtesy of her baby nephew, and trips over her handbag.
Managing director Douglas Faulkner isn’t sure what to make of Abby Spencer with her Bambi eyes, tousled hair and ability to say more in the half-hour interview than he manages in a day. All he knows is she’s a breath of fresh air and could bring a new lease of life to the stale corporate world of Crumbs. To his life too, if he’d let her.
But Doug’s harbouring a secret. He’s not the man she thinks he is.

Great book!! I loved it. Very good storyline
Thoroughly enjoyed this novel! Doug and Abby seem to come from different worlds and have different dreams. But do they have more in common than they think? Can they overcome Doug’s secret. This is such a fun novel with characters who grab you from the start. Highly recommend!
Another gem from Kathryn Freeman
With a title “Oh Crumbs' and the plot set in a biscuit company, the signs are that this will be good. It is very good.
When Doug Faulkner needs a PA, Abby rushes in late for her interview, he's never employed someone like her before and is astonished when he find himself offering her the job. Abby is not the scatterbrain she at first seemed, for years she's successfully run the family home for her father and sisters, giving her the ideal skills for Doug's job. While Doug and Abby are attracted to each other, her family's needs constantly take priority over everything, even their blossoming romance. Doug needs to convince Abby that she's not indispensable to her family but she is essential to his long term happiness. A delight to read and thoroughly recommended.
