The Undomestic Goddes by Sophie Kinsella

Title: The Undomestic Goddess

Author: Sophie Kinsella

Genre: Chick Lit

Summary: A financial lawyer becomes a domestic servant after misplacing $50 million of her client's money.

The Take-Away: Actually, Samatha Sweeting falls into the housekeeper thing. Everything about her screams "Corporate Bigwig" yet she is convincing enough to fool her new employees. After, it was only for one night.

Until the phone call the next day spirals the mockery into a fulltime job. The fall from corporate bigwig to housekeeper is completely believable. Ever since Confessions of a Shopoholic I've been a fan of Kinsella. Her writing is fun, quirky and upbeat. I know that the book's going to be an easy, entertaining read.

And I was thrilled to find her face on the back cover of this title. Previously she has always presented herself as a charming, but indistinguishable figure burdened with shopping bags.

Recommendation: Buy it, so that you have instant access the next time you need a laugh. It will look great on your shelf next to Confessions of a Shopoholic and her other titles.
