“I didn't like this book as much as other Kinsella works, I have to say. It's all perfectly fine, but the high-pressure lifestyle of the heroine just made me feel terribly anxious - memories of my London days, no doubt - and the way she escaped it all was utterly unrealistic and made me even more anxious.
So not really a fun read, though it's all fine and the romantic ending is nice enough. A bit average, all in all.”

“Twenty-nine year old lawyer Samantha Sweeting is waiting to hear if she's made partner at the law firm she's been working at practically 24 hours a day 7 days a week for the past seven years. She's given up all other aspects of her life in order to be considered for partner at such a young age. On the morning of the big decision, Samantha is cleaning up her desk when she uncovers something that should have been taken care of weeks ago. In a state of panic over the deadline she has apparently completely blown, Samantha leaves the office, boards a train and ends up in the middle of a small village miles away in the country. Asking for directions at a huge beautiful home, she's mistaken for an interviewee for a housecleaning / cooking position (which she knows nothing of) and in a state of exhaustion, accepts the position, as she's sure she's been fired from the law firm anyway. This is where the story really takes off and the fun begins, as well as a whole new phase of Samantha's life, as she realizes she's been missing out on a whole lot of living over the past seven years.
This is the third Sophie Kinsella book I've read in the past few months, and I've thoroughly enjoyed all of them. They are filled with humorous and very likable protagonists that are easy to relate to, even when the situations they find themselves in are completely ridiculous, but that's what makes these books so much fun to read. :-)”
