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.
