Starting a new job is hard. Especially when you’re the boss’s daughter.
Heather Bailey has been in charge of Silver Arches, the prestigious London shopping centre, for several years. Financial turmoil brings a new investor to secure the future and Heather finds herself playing office politics with the notoriously difficult entrepreneur Leo Flynn. Walking a fine line between standing her ground and being willing to accept change, Heather has her work cut out for her.
When Leo demands that his daughter is found a job at Silver Arches; things become even harder.
Scarlett Flynn has never fit in. Not in the army, not in her father’s firm, not even in her own family. So starting work at Silver Arches won’t be any different, will it?
Heather Bailey sent the email and then let out a long, heartfelt sigh. It was only ten o’clock in the morning and already her workday was looking out of control.
She stood up and looked out her office window. The Silver Arches Shopping Centre car park was filling up nicely; not bad for a weekday.
Heather turned to see Deputy Centre Director Ravi Patel standing in the doorway, smiling as he so often did. Ravi was the best second-in-command she could have hoped for; he was a dedicated, hard worker who got on with absolutely everyone. Heather often wondered how she’d manage without him, then quickly quashed the very notion of him ever leaving her side.
“Good morning,” she greeted him.
“Morning. The journalist is here.” He stepped into the office, taking a healthy bite out of a red apple he held in his hand.
Heather felt her eyes widen in surprise. She’d forgotten all about the interview she had booked for that morning.
Silver Arches was undergoing an unprecedented period of change, and she was expected to talk up what an exciting time it was. Even if, in her heart, she dreaded what was coming.
“You’d forgotten,” Ravi said after swallowing the bite of fruit. He was grinning playfully, knowing full well how forgetful Heather could be.
