|The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella|
The Undomestic Goddess is a fun little romp in the English countryside, following Samantha Sweeting, a highly stressed, perfectionist, intelligent lawyer who never makes a mistake. But, of course, never say never, right? Samantha is on the brink of becoming partner in one of London's most prestigious law firms and at a fairly young age for such an upward career move. However, it all goes wrong in a single moment when she discovers a career ending oversight, panics and runs away to the countryside with only her mobile phone and feelings of horror.
Samantha unwittingly finds herself in the middle of an interview for domestic help when all she really wants or needs is a glass of water and some aspirin for a headache. Feeling shaky and on edge from everything back at the office and with a splitting headache, Samantha is swept along and finds herself suddenly in a powder blue uniform dusting the bobbles and ornaments while trying to make Cordon Bleu worthy meals Problem is, Samantha's never dusted or cooked in her life!
The entire story is filled with fun and hilarity. I just love The Undomestic Goddess! It is one of my go-to books when I need to lighten things up in my own life.
