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?

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracey | 2/17/2014

    " Basically a beach right. A light, humorous romance, as most of her books are. I liked the idea of a high powered, overscheduled lawyer moving to the country to be a housekeeper. Of course she meets a wonderful man; of course there's a romance blooming; of course something comes up to keep them apart, etc. But overall, fun cotton candy for the brain. "

    " Really quick to grab my attention. It was the kind of book where I didn't mind if I had to stop reading to make dinner or clean, but I would go back to it when I had a minute to myself (meaning I wasn't obsessed and totally engrossed in the book). I enjoyed it. Very clever. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenni | 5/20/2011

    " My favorite S.K. that is not a Shopaholic. Really enjoyed the thought of someone making decisions that others would consider poor. Also identified with the idea of hating the business world and wanting a totally opposite life!!!!!!!!! "

    " Total chick-lit fluffy fast read - nice transition to summertime. "

    " It's been a few years since I read this book, but I remember it as being a charming, humorous, quick read, which is awesome in my book when I want something light to read. Didn't realise this was a Sophie Kinsella book until I looked it up today wanting to reread it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 5/6/2011

    " I really enjoyed this. It was a cute, fun read, and I actually liked it more than the Shopaholic series (maybe because I didn't want to constantly throttle the main character). "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lauren | 5/4/2011

    " This is pretty much the worst book I ever read. It started off by stressing me out and just when I thought there was some hope for redemption... the end happened. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roxann | 4/29/2011

    " I really liked this book. This was my intro to Sophie Kinsella. I love books that flip a "seemingly well adjusted life" upside down and seeing what happens. I found the author to be quite witty and fascinating. The book was hilarious. A great, fun read. "
