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

Samantha Sweeting is rocketing up the legal ladder. But when she makes a career-threatening mistake, she walks out of the office and quite mistakenly into a new life... as a housekeeper. How she takes a deep breath and begins to cope (and falls in love) is a story as delicious as anything she learns to bake.

Well, in my eagerness to get to know the genre, I'm drowned in chicklit now. I will steadily go on reading...

Journal Entry 4 by yvonnep from Amsterdam, Noord-Holland Netherlands on Friday, September 23, 2005
I loved this one... I especially loved Iris and Nathaniel... they must be wonderful people to know and it makes Samantha's decision all the more plausible. Sam must be a naturally talented person for cooking, 'cause I've never heard of someone making her dishes let alone baking bread after so few lessons. But, it doesn't matter. Nice book, nice book. I'll send it to Zoeking.

vandaag in de bus gekregen van Yvonnep, leuke verrassing op deze druilerige zondag!
Ik heb eerst nog een ander ringboek uit te lezen, maar daarna zal ik deze zo snel mogelijk verslinden.
(just arrived today, will read asap after finishing other ring book, bear with me please)

Journal Entry 6 by ZoeKing from Amsterdam, Noord-Holland Netherlands on Saturday, November 05, 2005
Not quite my cup of tea...This is the second book by Sophie Kinsella that I've read, and I guess her neurotic writing style is just not for me. However, it was a nice distraction from the things I should have been doing, but avoided doing by reading this book and dreaming of a place to escape and learn how to cook like a domestic goddess from a nice old lady living in a beautiful cottage in the English countryside, while shagging her gorgeous roguish son on the side....I think I could get used to that too.....
Now waiting for Marleen to PM her address, as she's next in line for this bookring.

I received it today by mail. Thanks, Zoëking! It has to wait on Mnt TBR until I've finished another ringbook.

Journal Entry 8 by LenaLena from Hoevelaken, Gelderland Netherlands on Sunday, December 18, 2005
Wow, I love the books of Sophie Kinsella! This one was also funny, heartwarming and a nice read. Especially the part with the brand of Samantha's ironing board. (-:

As soon I got Impuls' addy, I'll send it to her. Thanks for the read, Boekies!

Journal Entry 9 by Impuls from Streefkerk, Zuid-Holland Netherlands on Friday, January 06, 2006
Got it in the mail today: Thanks!!!

Ahhhh... just the book you want to read in wintertime... Heart warming! I found myself in the middle of the night thinking: I should go to sleep instead of reading..

What a wonderfull book!

What a lovely surprise on a dull morning, a book in the mail! I've already started reading and so far I like it!

Journal Entry 12 by EmEli from Voorschoten, Zuid-Holland Netherlands on Wednesday, February 08, 2006
I've already finished reading and stayed up much too late doing so! I enjoyed this book a lot, thanks for ringing it!
My sister is a shopaholic fan and she would like to read the Undomestic Goddess as well. I'm keeping this book a little bit longer for her to do so.

Journal Entry 13 by serendipity- from Wateringen, Zuid-Holland Netherlands on Friday, February 24, 2006
I received this book today by mail. Thanks EmEli! I 'll read it as soon as I finished my other ringbook :)

Journal Entry 14 by serendipity- from Wateringen, Zuid-Holland Netherlands on Friday, March 03, 2006
What a great story!
Lately I've been reading too much Chicklits; all the stories started too look alike. I must admit that I was'n really looking forward to reading this book(no offense... but I have some really good thrillers on my mount TBR). But a ringbook is a ringbook and al other books had to wait.

I really enjoyed this book.It was so funny that made me laugh out loud. Samantha did an excellent job fooling the Geigers. I don't know how she got away with it, but she did! Nathaniel's mum sounds wonderful (so does Nathaniel) en Meissa's behaviour made me wanting to punch her. I was feeling really sorry when I read the last page. How will this story continue? Can we have a sequel???

I will give this book to Pieterpadje

Journal Entry 15 by wingAnonymousFinderwing on Monday, March 20, 2006
Great! The new Kinsella! Thanks for crossing it.
I couldn't wait to start this one, so I stopped the book I was reading to begin in this. I already loved the first two chapters so I expect this to be a very nice book which I'll probably finish very soon...to be continued..

CAUGHT IN HILVERSUM NEDERLAND

The anonymous was me...

Journal Entry 17 by Pieterpadje from Hilversum, Noord-Holland Netherlands on Tuesday, April 04, 2006
I can only agree with the ladies who have read this book before me. What a lovely story! I really enjoyed it, like a feel-good movie.
In the second half the story looked a bit like the first Shopaholic but it didn't bother me.
Yes, let's hope this one will get some sequels too.
I will send it to Yinny now.

Journal Entry 18 by AnnevO from Rotterdam, Zuid-Holland Netherlands on Thursday, April 06, 2006
I received this book in the mail today after responding on the forum only two days ago. Thanks Pieterpadje, it seems like a great weekend-read.

To whom should I send this book, after I finish it? Do Yinny and Enitnaj still want to read it? I'm a bit confuzzled at the moment, but will try to have it ready for departure soon.

Journal Entry 19 by AnnevO from Rotterdam, Zuid-Holland Netherlands on Saturday, April 15, 2006
I liked this book. To me, the characters seem stronger than your average chick-lit heroine and hunk. I would love to read a sequel, just to find out if it is possible to end a high-flung career to settle down and cook.

This book will return to Boekies; have a safe journey home!

Journal Entry 20 by Boekies from Veldhoven, Noord-Brabant Netherlands on Tuesday, April 18, 2006
The book is safe back home....
