The Undomestic Goddess [Kinsella]

Book: The Undomestic Goddess
Author: Sophie Kinsella

Review: After making a multi-million dollar error at her firm, young workaholic attorney Samantha Sweeting has a breakdown and ends up accepting a job as a housekeeper in the country. The catch? Samantha can barely make toast, much less iron, do laundry or cook gourmet meals. As Samantha settles into her new position (complete with weekends off), an opportunity arises which forces Samantha to choose between her new stress free life and the law career she spent years building.

Like Kinsella's other books, this is quick, light and funny. I was concerned that Samantha would be written just like Becky Brandon (heroine from the 'Shopaholic' series) but Kinsella did a good job shaping her as a different person. I was disappointed by the ending of the book and found it completely unrealistic. Otherwise, a fun read.

Grade: B-
