Synopsis

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?

Praise for The Undomestic Goddess

"Light and breezy . . . Samantha is eminently likable, and overworked readers will empathize with her glee at her first full weekend off in years."—Christian Science Monitor

"Sophie Kinsella is at the top of the chick lit game. Her plots are fast-paced and entertaining, with the perfect amount of realistic neurosis to accompany her quirky heroines."—New York Post

"Perfectly amusing . . . The Undomestic Goddess is a genuinely funny, sweet book. Kinsella is a comic whiz who consistently delivers what her readers crave."—Miami Herald 

"A lovely romantic comedy."—Washington Post

About the Author

I think I could have written a series of books on being a Shopaholic, but British author Sophie Kinsella had beat me to it. In 2000, she had her big hit novel, the first in the Shopaholic series.....The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic. The great irony is that the book's main character is Becky Bloomwood, who is a financial journalist who should be giving sensible money spending and saving advice. However, she loves to shop, and is hopeless with money! It struck a nerve with many readers around the world. The other books in the series are: Shopaholic Abroad (Shopaholic Takes Manhattan), Shopaholic Ties the Knot, Shopaholic and Sister, Shopaholic and Baby, Mini Shopaholic, Shopaholic to the Stars, and Shopaholic to the Rescue. Her first novel in the series was produced as a movie by Disney as, Confessions
of a Shopaholic.

Other books she has written include: Can You Keep a Secret?, The Undomestic Goddess, Remember Me?, Twenties Girl, I've Got Your Number, Wedding Night, My Not So Perfect Life, and Surprise Me. Her latest work is I Owe You, which is described as being empowering.

Sophie lives in London with her husband, Henry Wickham, four sons and a daughter.

this book was ok. Kinsella leaves the reader hanging at the end. For Chick-lit and something lite to read this book fit the bill. some of the ideas seemed a little extreme and far fetched but it was good none the less.

AudiobooksNow review by Jalena on 2008-02-25 16:38:05

I ended up throwing the book across the room in disgust. Too far fetched and not believeable, with no character development. Predictable and just not worth the time, and for trashy summer read type book, it could at least give you a real ending.

AudiobooksNow review by Krista on 2008-07-21 15:56:35

this book had a slow start, but warmed up with the character's charm and story wit. the story seemed to circle around a few too many times, but was still an enjoyable light read

AudiobooksNow review by Shelley on 2010-09-23 22:29:03

I needed something light and one that did not need a lot of intense concentration. This was a perfect choice. It was a cute and very quick read and made me laugh several times. How can Samantha get herself into such messes? I enjoyed it.
