Typically addictive Sophie Kinsella! This one did have a little twist though. She's not a shopaholic, she's a housekeeper. Very cute. I took it on vacation with me and the 4 hour plane ride FLEW by! I definitely recommend this if you are a Kinsella fan or just a fan of chic lit.

When my best friend talked about this book to me she said something like "I can't believe how many times she messed up and miraculously didn't get caught!" which summarizes this book pretty well. Samantha Sweeting has a genius IQ and works at a very demanding law firm. She is under a lot of stress but is good at her job, until one day she finds a security document on her desk that she somehow forgot to file. Panicked, Samantha cracks and flees the city, and ends up in front of a big house. She intends to ask for water and directions, but gets mistaken for a housekeeper candidate and is hired on the spot. Samantha knows NOTHING about housework, but wants to lie low after the uproar at her firm, and madness ensues as she messes up everything she tries and then runs around hiding the evidence. As usual Kinsella also introduces a romance to the story. Cute, funny read, though I did feel a little stressed out by her situation at her law firm.

Sophie Kinsella's books have been my guilty pleasure for years now. Whenever you want to read something light-hearted, fun, and engaging enough that you don't want to put it down, pick up one of her books. You're guaranteed to have a great time following the antics and mis-adventures of her latest heroine.

Very easy read, so this was perfect for me right now. I have to say I admire the main character. I sometimes wanna just chuck it all and go hide somewhere - mistake or no mistake! This would be a great beach read or something you need to read when you don't want to have to pay rapt attention to it. Worth a read, but nothing too deep :)

I just finished this book, and I really enjoyed it more than her other books. The main character was easy to relate to and she just does some funny things. There were several points in the book where I was laughing out loud and my husband asked me what was so funny. The plot is somewhat predictable, as I figured it out about halfway through the book, but I still wanted to keep reading to figure out how the character would handle it. It kept me entertained.

Another excellent story from Sophie Kinsella. So far I loved every book she has written. Once into it I found it just as good as her shopaholic series. Highly recommend for a fast, light enjoyable read.

If you are a girl born without the "housewife" genes, this is the book for you. Even if you are a great housewife, you'll enjoy this book because you can giggle at the main character's hilarious attempts to figure out what the heck she's doing, how she got where she is now, and how she's going to get out. A light, entertaining read.

I think it's supposed to be funny, but I started out not liking this book at all. First, I prefer my fiction to be in the 3rd person, past tense. This is both present tense and first person, which made the bad treatment she was getting more personal. Her job, for instance, expecting long hours, without even weekends off. And there's her workaholic mother and brother, who are supposed to meet her for her birthday dinner, and both of them stand her up. Her brother's secretary delivers her present: soap. She's sitting there, alone, being sung to by waiters, her family represented by two cell phones. The waiter leaves the drinks beside the phones. Funny, but pathetic. Then there's a disaster at work, and she loses it and runs. I was halfway through the book before I started to enjoy it.

This book was fantastic! I love Samantha! She is absolutely hilarious! I love her quirky personality, and I really related to the trials she was put through - I felt stressed when she was stressed,embarrassed when she was embarrassed and I loved when she loved! Could NOT put this one down for long -- definitely a home run from Kinsella.

This book made me laugh out loud several times. It is *not* nearly as good (not as comical, flowing, believable) as the Shopaholic series. I still recommend it, however, as Kinsella is an exceptional writer and her books are great light reads at any time.

This is probably my favorite Kinsella book! I enjoyed it even more than the Shopaholic series - probably because I identified with Samantha a little too much! And I learned what "blanching" meant as well!

This book was an appropriate choice for my book club's "light book" month. A light read; feel-good, and comical at times, this was an enjoyable read. For a brief moment, there was almost too much back-and-forth indecisiveness from the main character, but it was then resolved. This is a book I could read again, and I will look for more by this author.

If you like the breezy approach of such books as Bridget Jones' Diary, this will appeal to you also.

Samantha is a corporate lawyer, working hard for the chance of becoming partner at a top London firm. She feels great pressure to be perfect and productive, feeling it's a waste of time to allocate any time for herself. She's not quite sure what she wants in life - she's always been pressured by her successful mother to make it to the top of the heap lawyer-wise, but hasn't ever thought beyond that. What she does know is that the only thing that will get her any respect from her colleagues and parent is to work work work and then work some more, all very chipper and efficient and without any failing.

She is within a stroke of making partner when something goes desperately, incomprehensibly and inexcusably awry. Shaken, she rushes out of her law firm's offices, and staggers onto the first train, desperately running through various mental scenarios trying to make sense of things, little noticing or caring where she is going while her mental gears turn.

Through an odd turn of events, she is mistaken for a housekeeper applicant at a private residence and decides to drift with the situation while she gets her thoughts and emotions together. She has, however, neglected to take into account that she knows nothing about cleaning or cooking, but her inner perfectionist demands that she find ways to cover up her lack of skills. In the process, she begins to notice some of the simple pleasures around her, and develops a crush on the gardener, who is suspicious of her.

The book is very humorous. Samantha is smart and snappy, despite being lost and without bearings, and her rue at her lack of emotional center is very human and heart-warming. The book deals with her conflict over the importance of relationships, the definition of success, and knowing what pleases yourself versus what pleases those around you. The maeuvers she uses to try to pass as a domestic servant are quite funny, especially as she never has a "this is beneath me" attitude - rather, she is overwhelmed by the situation but, being Samantha, she *must* do it all and do it all seamlessly. Well, she wishes, anyhow.

Good read for a summer afternoon. Moves along quickly, not overly involved, but still very entertaining.

I normally don't read chick lit, but I've read some of Sophie Kinsella's Shopaholic books so I decided to give this book a go. It was good! It's much better than the books in Kinsella's Shopholic series. For some reason, the main character in Shopaholic series annoyed me with how shallow and ditzy she was. The heroine in this story is the opposite. She's an extremely bright lawyer at a top law firm in London. Her mini-breakdown after an incident at work leads her to work in secret as a housekeeper to a nouveau riche couple. Throw in a very handsome gardener, some crazy situations, and misunderstanding and you have a great chick lit book. This is not War and Peace, but it's entertaining and fun.

This book is really cute. It almost has the feel of the Shopaholic novels to it. It is someone that keeps finding their way into an unending mountain of messes. If you have ever held a job of high power and high stress in the corporate world, there are times that you have probably felt that you would want to relate to the main character. Overall, it is a good escape, and you get enthralled and a good laugh out of someone elses problems.

I have loved the shopaholic series, but I feel that this book by Kinsella fell short. I just couldn't get into it. The main character's position from lawyer to maid was utterly unbelievable and the attempt at a love story with the gardener just fell flat and not what I longed for in the loveable heroine.

I am not a fan of Sophie Kinsella's books due to the way she writes her female characters. They always find themselves in difficult situations due to misunderstandings that would be easily cleared up if they simply spoke up and said what they meant to say; of course, if they did this, her books would be about 5 pages long, since the entire premise of her books rides on misunderstandings. Her female characters are always needing a man to rescue them from the mess they find themselves in; not a fan.

I was looking for some fluff, something with a sense of humor. This wasn't it. The book blurb makes it sound like fun. The cutesy-cover makes it look like fun. The tone of the writing make it sound like fun. I found no fun.

I listened to 75 minutes of the 6.5 hour CD version of the book; during that time I didn't find a character that I was remotely interested in, nor did I ever crack a smile (even an inward one). Seriously, if you're supposed to be clever, funny, or even mildly witty, don't you think you ought to put some of that stuff in the first 20% of the book?

I'm sure someone out there thinks this writer's stuff is hilarious. Wow, I SO did not. ::yawn::

This book was a light read that I absolutely loved. Most of it was light and enjoyable to read - then towards the end I couldn't put it down. I thought I knew the ending all along - which I did...but there were so many twists and turns and "NO, don't do THAT" moments along the way.
Nicely written feel good story!

While the book has some absolute hilarious moments and a good romance story involved, the whole concept of an attorney going down to a maid was a bit far fetched. If you want a humorous light read, this is a decent book. Not one I kept but worth the time to read.

Kinsella delivers another book with lots of LOL moments but also a lot of social commentary that is really on the money. Not as romantic, IMO, as the shopaholic books, but still delivers romance in the end. The story was interesting, although the situation seemed a bit unbelievable, but the book is a fun and worthy read.

I love Sophie Kinsella and I truly loved this book. It did start off a bit slow, well not slow, but it took me awhile to really reel me in good. I like to read a book and NOT want to put it down. I have ADD and that's the way I judge if a book is good if I can sit for hours without losing my patience! Other than it taking me a lil' longer then usual to get wrapped by the story it was really delightful. The romance is a bit typical,but it's hard to find good books that have some romance without all the XXX action going on! That's what I love about Kinsella and Jill Mansell. BTW there is no XXX stuff in here, I just reread what I wrote and thought it might be misconstrued! It's a definite must read for chick lit luvers everywhere :)

Samantha has been groomed to be a high powered London lawyer since childhood. She has the reputation of perfection, but when she makes one mistake (admittedly, a $50 million mistake), she runs away from all that and takes an anonymous job as a housekeeper in the Cotswolds. Besides learning how to do the laundry, she also learns that life is meant to take time...and so does love.

Another bit of the great writing style of Kinsella. Samantha is a young, high-powered lawyer with one of the top law firms in England. About to make partner, she realizes she has made a horrendous mistake, one that costs her what she has sacrificed a social life and worked endless hours to achieve. Humiliated and lost, she walks out of her London office and wanders onto a train that takes her to middle of nowhere. Looking for the hospitality of a stranger, she walks up to the door of a beautiful estate and is mistaken for a applicant to a housekeeping position. As a whirlwind ensues, she finds herself hired and at a loss at how to do anything domestic. That's when she finds the kindness of strangers, potential love and a world unlike she'd known and they have no idea who she really is. Well done book. A quick read you just can't put down.

ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS BOOK!! A city girl who works way to much realizes she has just made the biggest work mistake of her life and could loose her job. She panics and gets on a train with nothing but her purse and Blackberry and literally leaves everything behind. She finds a job pretending to be somebody she's not and has no clue what she is doing! But along the way she finds out that there is more to life than work and she discovers what is truly important.

I laughed the whole time!! And when I wasn't laughing I couldn't stop smiling! This was my first book by Sophie Kinsella and it is definitely not my last. She grabbed my attention at the very beginning and had it until the very end! Easy to read. And I loved the British lingo!!

This was a real surprise. It is literally laugh out loud funny and has a really good twist to the storyline. Its a mystery wrapped up in a comedy. The premise, without giving to much away, is that a city woman, who typically has all her household duties done for her, is thrust into of a housekeeper/cook role (in disguise of course.) And while she is desperately trying to figure out what exactly 'dusting' (and many other chores) entail, she's also trying to figure out what exactly caused the calamity she left behind.

Sophir Kinsella is a hoot. The hero of the tale is a brilliant lawyer who thinks she made a grave mistake and cost her law firm millions of dollars. She gets on a train and goes to the end of the line. She is somehow mistaken as a job applicant for housekeeper and the fun begins.

Enter a cast of characters that will amuse you long after you've finished the book.

This story started off a little slow, but once I was familiar with the characters and their situations I was intrigued and interested in learning more. Some situations are a little slap-stick but otherwise it was an overall fun read. I wish the ending provided a little more to the story 3-6 months down the line, although it ended well enough to let the reader imagine what happens after the credits.
