I learned what is meant by a summer read. I could not sleep a few years ago . Glad I had this book. Ended reading the last bit in the garden while sunbathing.A Nice and easy fun read. ( )

Well the thing is...Overall I liked the book, but it was never really that funny or mysterious or anything. It's an OK book. But I'll give Sophie one thing, she does know how to create male characters that take your breath away. ( )

Sophie Kinsella gives me hilarious brain candy. She provides adorable character that you often wish were in your life to lighten it all up a bit. ( )

This a sweet fun romantic comedy that reminds us what we really want from life. Hint, it's not always what we have always desired. Sophis Kinsella is a gift to the over worked over stimulated working women trying to find her way in the urban fight to be on top. I love her audio books the narrator does a fabulous job and it is easy to lose myself in her world. A treat. ( )

The characters are rather extreme, and the story somewhat unbelievable... nonetheless, the writing is good, the story amusing and moving in turn, and the conclusion satisfactory. A pleasant light read. ( )

Book description
Workaholic attorney Samantha Sweeting has just done the unthinkable. She’s made a mistake so huge, it’ll wreck any chance of a partnership.

Going into utter meltdown, she walks out of her London office, gets on a train, and ends up in the middle of nowhere. Asking for directions at a big, beautiful house, she’s mistaken for an interviewee and finds herself being offered a job as housekeeper. Her employers have no idea they’ve hired a lawyer–and Samantha has no idea how to work the oven. She can’t sew on a button, bake a potato, or get the #@%# ironing board to open. How she takes a deep breath and begins to cope–and finds love–is a story as delicious as the bread she learns to bake.

But will her old life ever catch up with her? And if it does…will she want it back?
