Publisher's Summary

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 goes into meltdown, 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 - and Samantha has no idea how to work the oven.

An unlikely plot made plausible

There is nothing wrong with an unlikely series of coincidences as Bronte's Jane Eyre proves, and although there's nothing quite as far fetched in here, the basic premise of a lawyer who can't cook turning into a housekeeper never fails to engage.

This is a fun book, that gently makes fun equally of the 'working class' rich and less gently of the urban snobs of the city.

The rural idyll is perhaps a little overdone, but it's a fun listen and there are enough twists and turns to keep you hooked.

Give the book a better chance

An easy listen and quite a good story but spoilt by the reader! - so many times a good book is spoilt by the reader, I sometimes wonder how they get the job!
