Working Wonders Book Review Summary

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Working Wonders

Arthur Pendleton is a dull town planner in Coventry. Then, he learns from the seemingly magical company psychologist, Lynn, that he is a descendant of King Arthur and that like his ancestor, he has a quest. After his boss is fired, Arthur must lead the town planners to win the European City of Culture contest for Coventry.

His co-workers are an odd assortment including a computer geek named Sven and his dog, Sandwiches. Also, helping him is a beautiful consultant, Gwenyth Morgan. Amazingly, Gwenyth appears to be attracted to him, but Arthur has a girlfriend, Faye.

As Arthur and Gwenyth explore their attraction for each other, their relationship begins to look like the mythical Arthur and Guinevere. A Lancelot character joins the team to help Arthur and tempt Gwenyth. Even more difficult than his love life, Arthur has to figure out a town plan to make Coventry interesting enough to be considered a city of culture.
