Book Description

May 2 2006
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?

4.0 out of 5 stars Another winner from Kinsella July 28 2005
By Tanya L. Schaub - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio Cassette
As usual I enjoyed this book by SK. I enjoy all of her books especially the Shopaholic series. This one continues her style of a fun fast paced story with a bit of the unreal thrown in.

One thing that bothered me about this one is that her family falls off the face of the earth. If she was in the trouble she was in one would have thought she would have at least gotten a call from her Mother the Barrister. But, that may have been a function of an abridged audio version.

Samantha is a riot learning to cook. I love the fact that she ends up taking lessons so that she can stop buying the food she is serving her employers. I also like the fact that she has to learn all of these things very quickly and decided that if she can be a lawyer she can definitely be a domestic.

SK also hits it right on the head when portraying "fair weather friends" as well as the friends that are true, suck as Lady Freya.

If you are a fan of chick lit this is another must read/listen.

3.0 out of 5 stars Although a weak story line, characters were strongly developed Sept. 5 2005

The book does not provide a good story, as expected. Her "Shopaholic" book was much better. The book was entertaining, but story lacked depth and complexity.

4.0 out of 5 stars Audio 5cd abrid. Fun fluffy chick lit book Aug. 21 2008
By Barbara Lane - Published on Amazon.com

Samantha is a high powered lawyer who is happily working her way up towards a partnership then everything goes wrong at work and she runs off to the country. She is mistaken for someone applying for a live-in housekeepers job. Samantha needs somewhere to stay and maybe she could hid here for a while. Housework she hates and is not good at.

A funny, romantic, light story. A solicitor client of mine said she had already read it, loved it and loved all of the Sophie Kinsella series.
So even solicitors appreciate this story.

A light sunday afternoon read at the beach or infront of the log fire.

This is a fun yet intelligent writing! Because it takes place in England you have to pay attention due to the beautiful English accent. It is well written and a funny love story! I got this as a used set, but it is in excellent condition. This is a keeper for my audio library!
