The Undomestic Goddess, by Sophie Kinsella
I love romantic comedies. I do. It’s a sorry-not-sorry habit I indulge in when I need something just for me–like chocolate, or naps on the porch. This one is a stand-alone New York Times bestseller, which makes it a great introduction to the author. I bought it based on the sample because the deal was just too good to pass up.
Plus, that cover!
It’s exactly what I need right now.
It’s not sci-fi or fantasy, but there’s a method to the madness. We’ve all gone through the dreaded reading slump, right? No matter how hard we try, we just aren’t feeling captivated by anything we pick up. When that happens to me, I take it as a sign that I need something different. Maybe I don’t need another tense, harrowing plot right now. Maybe I need some old-fashioned comedy relief.
So here you go: Comic relief for the soul, for just $1.99. It doesn’t get much better than that.
From the Publisher
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?
“Another charming winner from the delightful Kinsella.”–Booklist
