    Fans of Graeme Simsion’s The Rosie Project
    and Gail Honeyman’s Eleanor Oliphant is
    Completely Fine are highly likely to enjoy
    Katherine Collette’s debut novel, which
    is heartwarming and humorous in equal
    measure. Germaine Johnson is an insurance
    probability outcomes mathematician who
    is more comfortable with pie charts and
    sudoku puzzles than she is with other
    people. She’s also in need of a job. When
    she eventually gets a position working on
    the senior citizens helpline at the local
    council, Germaine soon realises that Mayor
    Verity Bainbridge wants to rope her into
    a secret project to close the local senior
    citizens centre. But as Germaine gets to
    know – and like – the local senior citizens,
    the probability of her life getting complicated
    increases. And so too does her happiness.
    Germaine Johnson may not be all that good with people but she’s great with numbers. Unfortunately, as she discovers after the incident at Wallace Insurance, there are very few openings these days for senior mathematicians.

    Then her cousin gets her a job at the council. On the Senior Citizens Helpline.

    It’s not the resume entry Germaine wanted—but it turns out Mayor Verity Bainbridge has something more interesting in mind for her. A secret project involving the troublemakers at the senior citizens centre and their feud with the golf club next door. Which is run by the strangely attractive Don Thomas.

    Don and the mayor want the seniors closed down. Germaine wants what Don and the mayor want. But when she’s forced to get to know the ‘troublemakers'—things get more complicated.
