The Undomestic Goddessby Sophie Kinsella
Synopses & Reviews
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?
After making a mistake that will ruin an chance of a partnership, workaholic attorney Samantha Sweeting suffers a breakdown, gets on a train, and ends up in the middle of nowhere, where she is mistaken for someone looking for a job and is hired as a housekeeper, but her new employers are unaware that she is an attorney with no housekeeping skills at all. 375,000 first printing.
