The Undomestic Goddess

The Undomestic Goddess Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Workaholic attorney Samantha Sweeting has just done the unthinkable. Shes made a mistake so huge, itll 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, shes mistaken for an interviewee and finds herself being offered a job as housekeeper. Her employers have no idea theyve hired a lawyer—and Samantha has no idea how to work the oven. She cant 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?

I laughed out loud throughout this book. It is very cleverly written. I highly recommend it. It is the best book I have read in quite a while. I was sad to see it end because I had nothing else to read that was that entertaining.
