About the Book:
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?

Flashback Thoughts:

Just thinking about writing this review made me laugh.  I loved this book!!  There are two kinds of women, those who are domestic and those who are not.  By no fault of their own, some women are not taught to clean and cook, are not required to do so,are not passionate about it, or simply don't have the talent.  Regardless of which side of the coin you are on, ALL women will be able to laugh at this book.  It takes the every day domestic responsiblities and turns them into a rip roar of fun.  I found myself understanding Samantha while at the same time laughing at her antics and inability to do things I find so simple.  This book is pure comic relief and a great example of Sophies talent!  If you haven't read it, you should!  Even men could enjoy this one.  If you've ever had to pick up a broom, try to make a meal or have no clue where the broom and oven are located, you will enjoy this book!!
