Review
“Light and breezy … Samantha is eminently likable, and overworked readers will empathize with her glee at her first full weekend off in years.”—Christian Science Monitor
“Sophie Kinsella is at the top of the chick lit game. Her plots are fast-paced and entertaining, with the perfect amount of realistic neurosis to accompany her quirky heroines.”—New York Post
“Perfectly amusing….The Undomestic Goddess is a genuinely funny, sweet book. Kinsella is a comic whiz who consistently delivers what her readers crave.”—Miami Herald
“A lovely romantic comedy.”—Washington Post
From the Hardcover edition.


Product Description
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?


From Batty’s Girl

Don’t expect any surprises from this book.  Its exactly what you think its going to be and the characters fit their molds well.  Nevertheless the story is sweet and touching and well written.  You won’t feel let down and you’ll laugh quite a bit in the quirkier moments.
