My name is Samantha. I am twenty-nine years old. I have never baked a loaf of bread in my life. I don't know how to unfold an ironing board. What I do know is how to construct a contract exploiting European corporate tax harmonisation and save my client £3 million.
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 pressure and adrenalin. Until one day ... she makes a mistake. A mistake so huge, it will 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 - Samantha has no idea how to work the oven.
Gradually Samantha starts to learn. She learns how to bake bread, she learns how to slow down. But then her old life threatens to catch up with her. And when it does ...will she want it back?
