The Undomestic Goddess - Book Review

My 6th book I read for my 24 books in 2017 was The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella. Can you tell, I've been really loving Sophie Kinsella?

The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella
Paperback: 400 pages  Publisher: Dial Press Trade Paperback; Reprint Addition (April 25, 2006)

This book was pretty hysterical. Undomestic Goddess is about a woman, Samantha Sweeting, who is a lawyer trying desperately trying to make partner. She hears a rumor that she's made partner and it will be announced later in the morning, but just after people start congratulating her, she realizes she made a horrible mistake that will cost her company a lot of money and she'll never be made partner. She leaves and just keeps walking and riding trains until she arrives at a mansion in the middle of nowhere. She stops to ask for directions and is mistaken for a housekeeping applicant. Samantha doesn't know the first thing about cooking, cleaning, or mending clothing, but her competitive side won't let her fail a job interview. She gets the job and then hilarity ensues.

There is also a hint of mystery as we later find out that her mistake she made, may not have been such a mistake after all.

I literally laughed out loud while reading this. It's a fun, quick read, that will keep you entertained from the very beginning to the end.
