U is for Undomestic Goddess #AtoZChallenge

I couldn't do the A to Z Challenge without mentioning one of the true chick lit goddesses herself: Sophie Kinsella. We all know her from the shopaholic series but have you read The Undomestic Goddess? If not, why the heck not? It is hilarious! Just as brilliant as the series which brought her worldwide fame, this book is well worth a look...

The Undomestic Goddess

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?

  1. I like Sophie Kinsella (although couldn't relate to the shopaholic character) so I read her other books. This one, I don't know, it just sounds way too unrealistic a setup. But I love the title. I'm your best example for an Undomestic goddess :)
