Have you ever felt like the rug has been completely pulled out from under your feet Something you ve worked for all of your life within grasp and the harshly yanked away from you because of one little mistake Samantha has High flying city lawyer Samantha is due to take up a partnership position at her firm when a costly mistake has her running for the countryside Samantha has to overcome the massive change in her surroundings and acclimatise to her new state of domesticity I think this was the first book by Sophie Kinsella that I had read, and it definitely got me hooked on her writing style and I have enjoyed many since reading this The story follows Samantha as her high flying career comes crashing down around her and she finds herself making her way on to any train to anywhere as long as it s far from London Blagging herself as a Cordon Bleu trained housekeeper Samantha joins the Geigers Without a clue how to turn her own oven on, or whether her Hoover needs bags or has a cylinder she embarks on a journey which could possibly have a harder learning curve than studying for her law degree Cue crush worthy Gardner Nathaniel Nat is nobody s fool and calls Samantha out as the fraud she is, after their first meeting Nat sees an opportunity to help Sam and offers his mother s services to teach her to cook and keep house I loved Samantha s character She is down to earth and completely relatable to anyone who has ever felt any pressure and who just needs to get away from it all You will be laughing throughout as this feel good romance twists and turns as Samantha changes almost beyond recognition The writing is witty and has you feeling like you are with Samantha the whole time You ll want to keep reading to the end as a plot twist is thrown in meaning changes for the characters I often think it s nice to see some of the story told by other characters, however in a case like this where the protagonist is so likeable, reading purely from her perspective just makes it easier for you to like her and want the best for her I also loved how easy it was for me to imagine the characters For me Samantha was a cross between Kate Hudson and Jennifer Love Hewitt It makes it easier to imagine yourself in her place if you can really see the character bringing you a whole lot closer to the story I also really liked Nathaniel s character He was easy going and complimented Samantha s highly strung and nervous exterior, teaching her to appreciate taking time to carry out tasks and to actually live life Having said that, who doesn t love a good hottie to read about I think if you haven t read this, or haven t read it for a while it is a good read for any Sophie fans, but also for any fans of Lindsey Kelk and Paige Toon. Sophia Kinsella is one of my favourite authors Her books always have me laughing out loud and are extremely well written but for some reason I have never got round to reading them all I really enjoyed the Shopaholic series and Can you keep a secret was probably one of the best books I have read in a while but I never did get round to reading the Undomestic Goddess.The book itself is about a high flying city lawyer at the top of her career Crazy hours and 100% commitment has left her with no social life, no family life and no free time to do anything, especially any sort of domestic duties that come with owning your own home One giant mistake in work and Samantha s life crashes down around her This one mistake puts her career in jepordary and threatens everything she once believed in so she runs away A chance encounter with a new family and a surprising new job makes Samantha wonder if her new life is the one she needs or if city life is in her blood This book had me hooked from start to finish I adored the storyline, the drama involved and the many different characters who were involved in Samantha s life Overall the book was superb but I did have one major gripe Throughout the book you were continuously reminded of how smart Samantha was and yes she is incredibly intelligent but it was mentioned far too often Not only that it was then coupled with Samantha doing completely idiotic things it is hard to take seriously.Overall it is a fantastic book It has all of Kinsella s charm and hilarious writing style wrapped up in 300odd pages I would highly recommend. When Samantha, a lawyer, finds herself plunged into domestic disaster will she cope and come out smelling of roses Enjoyable, light chick lit yes, very far fetched, predictable even but so, so much fun Entertaining, escapism and all the better for that. This is my 8th read of this book I lost my paperback copy to somebody who borrowed it and didn t return it don t you hate people who do that So when this appeared for 99p on Kindle I had to buy it.A fantastic, laugh out loud read by Sophie The characters are all wonderful and you will devour this in one sitting. While the plot s a bit of a stretch and borders on formulaic, Kinsella s characters are easy to like and relate able, making The Undomestic Goddess a light and enjoyable read It won t change your life like protagonist Samantha but this would make a perfect romp to lose yourself in while relaxing poolside with a fruity cocktail close to hand.
