A superb read and a definite one for your list if you like chick-lits.

Received today, thank you!

From the blurb:

"Samantha is a high-powered lawyer in London. She works all hours, has no home life, and cares only about getting a partnership. She thrives on the pressure and adrenalin. Until one day...she makes a mistake. A mistake so huge, it'll wreck her career.

"She walks right out of the office, gets on the first train she sees, and finds herself in the middle of nowhere. Asking for directions at a big, beautiful house, she is mistaken for the interviewee housekeeper and finds herself being offered the job. They have no idea they've hired a Cambridge-educated lawyer with an IQ of 158 - Samantha has no idea how to work the oven.

"Disaster ensues. It's chaos as Samantha battles with the washing machine...the ironing board...and attempts to cook a cordon bleu dinner. But gradually, she falls in love with her new life in a wholly unexpected way.

"Will her employers ever discover the truth? Will Samantha's old life ever catch up with her? And if it does...will she want it back?"

I'm not a massive fan of chick lit, but there is definitely a time and a place for it. Read this is just a few hours yesterday, thoroughly distracted me from writing my dissertation! Like Lizziepie says, if you like chick lit then this book must be read!

Have PMed someone who has this on their wishlist, if they don't respond it'll be offered up on a relay, so hopefully it'll be on its way again soon.

Uhm. Ok, I'll refrain from rating this as I actually skipped the middle 200 pages or so once I saw where the story was going... I did enjoy parts of the last section (not giving details as that would make for spoilers), there were a few lol-moments - enough to make the husband wonder what was going on. However, I sort of grew out of chicklit a while back, and though I still read the odd volume, this was not my cup of tea. The conclusion did not sit well with me either. Still, I know there are people out there who will enjoy this, so I'll find someone to pass it on to :)

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

I must admit I was a bit skeptical about this book, and actually considered stop reading it in the beginning. Luckily I didn't! It grew on me and I really liked how it developed.
