Workaholic attorney Samantha Sweeting has just done the unthinkable. She’s made a mistake so huge, it’ll wreck any chance of a partnership.
Going into utter meltdown, she walks out of her London office, gets on a train, and ends up in the middle of nowhere. Asking for directions at a big, beautiful house, she’s mistaken for an interviewee and finds herself being offered a job as housekeeper. Her employers have no idea they’ve hired a lawyer–and Samantha has no idea how to work the oven. She can’t sew on a button, bake a potato, or get the #@%# ironing board to open. How she takes a deep breath and begins to cope–and finds love–is a story as delicious as the bread she learns to bake.
But will her old life ever catch up with her? And if it does…will she want it back?
This was just the book i needed to make me feel better. Super super funny that had me laughing out loud and my parents coming into my room to see if i were okay.
I loved the story. It actually made me feel better about myself because i am a bit of an Undomestic Goddess myself but not to such an extreme as Samantha.
Sophie Kinsella once again weaved a phenomenal novel that literally was stuck to my hands and i could not for a second let go of it. In fact i took it with me in the bathroom as well.
Its a fun read that you should all pick up if you want to escape your hectic lives for sometime without going anywhere and in a way it also makes you think about the small precious things in life. All in all grab yourself a copy of the book.
