Publisher's Summary

Samantha is a high-powered lawyer in London. She works all hours, has no home life, and cares only about getting a partnership. She thrives on the pressure and adrenalin. Until one day...she makes a mistake. A mistake so huge it'll wreck her career. She goes into meltdown, walks right out of the office, gets on the first train she sees, and finds herself in the middle of nowhere. Asking for directions at a big, beautiful house, she is mistaken for the interviewee housekeeper and finds herself being offered the job. They have no idea they've hired a Cambridge-educated lawyer with an IQ of 158 - and Samantha has no idea how to work the oven.

Light and Easy - very enjoyable

If you could sum up The Undomestic Goddess in three words, what would they be?

Fun, light and easy

What other book might you compare The Undomestic Goddess to and why?

Just pick any other Sophie Kinsella/Madeline Wickham story (Shopaholic series, Twenties-Girl) - like a TV sitcom. Makes you laugh, easy to follow and you can pick the story up very quickly.

What about Phoebe James’s performance did you like?

I did enjoy Phoebe James's performance - I do like the English narrators as these stories are so

If you could take any character from The Undomestic Goddess out to dinner, who would it be and why?

The main character - Samantha Sweeting. The up and coming brilliant lawyer who makes the biggest mistake possible and in a haze of fog and in shock, flees the city and ends up working as a housekeeper to a slightly neurotic

Any additional comments?

Fun story for the light-hearted. A very enjoyable story - great for first timer's getting into Audobooks.
