Publisher Description

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?

The Undomestic Goddess

What a romp! A high-powered, cut-throat lawyer at one of London's most prestigious firms is on the verge of becoming the youngest partner in its history when disaster strikes.
Shaken & humiliated, Samantha stumbles blindly onto a train to the country. When she leaves the train in search of pain relief & is mistaken for an unemployed maid, her quest ends with a hiding place & a new job... As a maid! Quite a challenge for someone who burns toast! A savvy, young gardener sees through her veneer & lends a hand, but the fun is far from over.
Plenty of twists & revelations keep the plot from dragging or getting too predictable. Enjoy!
