The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella
The Undomestic Goddess is the story of lawyer Samantha Sweeting. She is a workaholic with a messy desk, devoting her blood, sweat, and tears to firm Carter Spink. On the eve of being made partner, she makes a mistake. A mistake so huge that it will likely cost her her career. She does the only sensible thing, and walks out of the office in a daze, hops on a random train out of the city, and ends up in the middle of nowhere. Not only so, but she knocks on a random door, and accidentally takes a job as a housekeeper when she barely knows how to make toast. She considers telling her new “employers” that they have mistaken her for someone else, but instead thinks that this might be the break she needs. That, and the gardiner is gorgeous.
This book was a super fun summer read! Light Chick Lit that would make an ideal poolside companion.
