The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella

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?
High powered, 500 pounds/hr. Lawyer vs. Being a Domestic Helper. Seriously it's a no brainer right? But no Kinsella has to go to extremes, when Samantha fled to the country side due to a work mishap and an over due stress blow up, she fled to the countryside and turned into this curtsy-ing housekeeper, that's fine she obviously needed a break but when she finally cleared her name? I just don't get it. I thought the book will get interesting after that, the media rukus was a good scene but the situations following that was daft and stereotype. I thought she was going to do something different as a Lawter but no, nothing. The scenarios were laughable not because it's funny but because it's pathetic. Samantha's character isn't close to anything lovable either. I was disappointed.
