I started reading this during a really crappy time in my life. Within the first two pages I knew I would love it. I know exactly how Samantha felt because it’s exactly how I was feeling. Maybe not quite to the 6-minute extreme, but close.
Just to caution you: don’t read this while at work, church, gym, or anywhere you feel the need to be quiet because it will make you laugh out loud. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
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?
