The Undomestic Goddess! (Not a Review!)

The Undomestic Goddess - Sophie Kinsella

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.
Disaster ensues. It's chaos as Samantha battles with the washing machine... the ironing board...and attempts to cook a cordon-bleu dinner... But maybe she's not as undomestic as she thought. Maybe, with some help, she can fake it? Will her employers ever discover their housekeeper is actually a top-flight lawyer? Will Samantha's old life ever catch up with her? And if it does...will she want it back?

This Book was honestly so good! I loved it so much & I wish there was a sequel to it, because the romance between Nathaniel and Samantha was so lovely! I actually loved the scene between them in the garden, it was beautifully written, and I'm not going to lie I was totally smitten on him by the end!
Only disappointment was the end - as I prefer when novels have a complete ending and when they're not like left out in the open for you to decide how you want it to end!
Despite this I LOVED it!
Everyone must read this book! :)
