Four stars.

Oh, Sophie Kinsella, will I ever tire of your books?


I didn't think so either.

The Undomestic Goddess is the story of Samantha Sweeting, a true work addict. She's one of the best & youngest lawyers, & is up for a partnership at the firm where she works. She "thrives" under pressure, just like her pushy lawyer mother (but not her brother, who had a melt down, but, let's not talk about that). It's the day that she finds out if she makes partner- but she notices a form on her desk. One she's ignored. It's a huge, rookie mistake, one that'll get her fired....

So she runs for it, taking a train to anywhere but London. She gets off in a daze, & goes up to a house, wanting a simple glass of water. But they think she's there to be their housekeeper. She's a trained lawyer, but maybe this is just the break she needs....

This book is a lovely blend of tragedy, love, & humor. It's a quick, fun read that all chick-lit fans should check out.
