Got to be Happy

Front Cover
Nick Hern, 2003 - Drama - 78 pages
It's a boiling hot summer and the pub kitchen's getting manic. Charley is head cook, well the only cook, and he's as stubborn as the grease on his cooker. Spending his downtime amongst the empties in the kitchen courtyard, he's happy with a quiet life and his classical CDs.
But sharing his kitchen with stroppy bar manager, Richard, and his waitress/student girlfriend has its drawbacks - like their shagging in the storeroom between shifts.
When Connie comes to help, she stirs up more than just the soup. No matter how much they all try to lose themselves in the routine of everyday life, she awakens painful half-forgotten feelings that just can't be ignored.
