Reading - The Undomestic Goddess

The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella

Samantha is a high-powered lawyer in London. She works all hours, has no home life, and cares only about getting a partnership. Until on day .... she makes a mistake. A mistake so huge it'll wreck her career.

She goes into meltdown, walks right out of the office, get on the first train she sees, and finds herself in the middle of nowhere. Asking for direction at a big, beautiful house, she is mistaken for the interviewee housekeeper and finds herself being offered the job. Samantha has no idea how to work the oven, battles with the washing machine... the ironing board... and attempts to cook a cordon-bleu dinner.. But maybe she's not as undomestic as she thought. Maybe, with some help, she can fake it?

Will her employers ever discover their housekeeper is actually a top-flight lawyer ? Will Samantha's old life ever catch up with her?
