What I loved: I happen to be a pretty Undomestic Goddess myself, so this book really resonated with me. A character that works hard and finds herself in a situation where she needs to keep house for someone. I would be pretty screwed. I loved reading about this character going through that situation.
How I Felt: This was such a light-hearted, easy read full of comedic situations and a little love. It made me smile so much, and felt so good to read.
To Read or Not To Read: I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys easy, fun books. Fans of Sophie Kinsella (or Madeleine Wickham) won’t be disappointed either!
“There’s no such thing as ruining your life. Life’s a pretty resilient thing, it turns out.”
― Sophie Kinsella, The Undomestic Goddess
What’s This Book About Anyway?
Samantha Sweeting is an attorney at a law firm hoping to make partner. She spends all of her time focused on work, trying to attain that *partner* status. She makes a mistake at works, and loses it a bit. She leaves work and jumps on a train to anywhere. One arriving to the middle of nowhere, she walks up to a house to ask for directions, and they think she is there for the housekeeper interview. She nails the interview and ends up hired. For a job as a housekeeper. She can’t cook, clean, sew, or do anything that resembles taking care of a household. The adjustment and learning period for her are full of hilarious situations and a little romance, but we do find that she begins to adapt. This story is a great adventure into trying something completely different and finding who you really are.
