Summary:

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?

Praise for The Undomestic Goddess

'Light and breezy . . . Samantha is eminently likable, and overworked readers will empathize with her glee at her first full weekend off in years.'—Christian Science Monitor

'Sophie Kinsella is at the top of the chick lit game. Her plots are fast-paced and entertaining, with the perfect amount of realistic neurosis to accompany her quirky heroines.'—New York Post

'Perfectly amusing . . . The Undomestic Goddess is a genuinely funny, sweet book. Kinsella is a comic whiz who consistently delivers what her readers crave.'—Miami Herald 

'A lovely romantic comedy.'—Washington Post

    I feared this was going to be just a silly "chic book" but actually REALLY enjoyed this! Yes, it was definitely "light reading" but was also a little thought-provoking (making me reassess MY priorities in life!). I adored the narrator, too - can't imagine what would have been lost if I had actually read the book - instead of listening to her pleasant accent!

    Cute story, very predictable. Well read and fun to listen to.

    Sophie Kinsella always manages to make me laugh with her books and this was no exception. Totally implausible story, but who cares?

    I loved listening to this book it is lighthearted and ever so funny! Just what I needed as I sat in traffic or waited in the car for someone. Made me laugh on my way to work as I thought about it. Couldn't wait to get back in my car just to listen to what was going to happen next. I passed it on to a friend who also enjoyed it.

  • Laurajean

    You need to suspend reality a little bit for this book, but it was thoroughly enjoyable. I highly recommend for anyone looking for a good love story.

  • joane

    i like this book more than confessions of a shopaholic. i couldnt help from laughing so hard (i was in the ofc, by the way) when samantha's saying that she preferred using the nimbus 2000, over a very high-end flat iron. hahaha that was hilarious! funny. funny, funny....

    Very well read story of a lawyer laying low as a housekeeper in England. End is pretty predictable, but cute story anyway.

    Highly recommended. It was funny, entertaining and heart warming.

    I really enjoy Sophie Kinsella's books. They are light reading and very enjoyable. I thoroughly enjoyed this one.

  • Wendy

    What a great book. So outrageous, so silly, and then the love story to boot. And the narrator really separated all the characters beautifully. Very engaging. An enjoyable listen!

    I was disappointed in this book. It seemed rather silly and the plot was too simplistic.

  • Stevens Chris

    Never made it to the end, I don't know if it was the person reading the book or the book itself. Lost my interest quickly.

    This was a terrible book. I almost returned it everyday, but didn't have anything else to listen to! The reader's voice is very shrill and annoying -- for every character. The plot is very obvious and there isn't a bit of suspense. Even the "funny scenes" weren't really funny because they were so obvious. Most disheartening, the whole message seems to be that, as a woman, we have 2 choices: power mean-man-like attorney or maid. Somehow, I'm pretty sure there is a middle-ground, but this "brilliant lawyer" character can't figure that out. Very annoying.

  • Caroline W

    Laugh out loud and great story. It was completely entertaining and captivating.

    This was another cute book by Sophie Kinsella. I LOVED "Can you Keep a Secret". This one was a little different, but still cute. I really like the person who reads this book. She had an excellent voice for the character "Trish" right on target. I would recommend this book if you like "Chick Lit."

  • Delores Brouillard

    Really fun book -- exactly what I have come to expect from Sophie Kinsella. I love her work. It was nice to have a protagonist that didn't whine all the time!!!!

  • Carolyn Zacks

    I found this book to be slightly shallow -- not very involving characters. I also found the reader's voice a bit sharp for my taste. Actually, I listened to the first disk and then simply sent the "book" back. I feel that if I haven't become sympathetic to the heroine by the end of the disk, why continue?

  • Marlene Alhandy

    Clever and enjoyable. A good fun read. Kinsella seems to understand and to be able to articulate the human condition in all of its unflattering forms.

  • Sharon Deaves

    Very light and funny and a good way to pass the time! This audio, although at times very unbelievable, is worth the listen and will provide the listener with more than a few laughs, but then, there is really nothing like English style humour is there?

  • NATAP Jessica

    Do you think a woman with flour in her hair trying really hard to cook but failing funny? Me either. It is just cliché, predictable, and recycled. Undomestic Goddess is the most pathetic Cinderella remake yet. It makes Maid in Manhattan seem like Shakespeare. Yes, it is that bad. And so is the message: Learn to cook, follow your man, and say the work f*ck a lot. *awesome*

  • Sharon L.

    Have to agree with other listeners... this is a fun, entertaining and enjoyable listen. Even though it dragged a bit in the middle... I had lots of fun with this audiobook and would recommend it - half way through the first CD you're definitely hooked!

  • Cari Berggren

    This one is for the girls - but what a riot. And I loved the ending. Great read for a vacation, or poolside relaxation

    This was a cute, light story. Very enjoyable read.

    I liked this book. It is a nice book to relax with while driving to and from work. Parts of it were a bit far fetched but of course it is fiction. The narrator did a good job will all the English accents. If you are looking for a fun book that you don't have to put a lot of thought into, then this will be a good one for you!

  • TS

    Laughed out loud! Great for putting your life in perspective, especially if you find yourself a bit of a workaholic. Sweet little love story thrown in for good measure and some wonderful supporting characters. Sophie has done it again!!! Rent this one ASAP!

  • Lisa

    Let's face it, when you're reading a Sophie Kinsella book, you're not looking for the theory on relativity. It's a light fun book and enjoyable. At first, I thought it rang similar to the Shopaholic books, but as Samantha's character developed, it was totally different. I really enjoyed it - I'd love to hear more books like this!

  • Julie

    Fun and Entertaining! Characters are very enjoyable.

  • Marshmallowfluff

    When I first started listening to this, I groaned, "Oh great! It's just another Shopaholic book." Now, I loved the Shopaholic books, but I wanted Sophie Kinsella to expand a bit. But then, the book took a turn, and it is, I think, one of her best works yet! I would really like to see the unabridged version released, but for now, this was excellent!

  • Brandi

    I loved Can you Keep A Secret. I did not like this book. The reader was very good at bringing the story to life. I however hate Samatha by the end of the book. I was very disappointed.

  • dschluck

    This was a fun little book, but i gave it only 4 stars because it was rather predictable.

  • Anonymous

    I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book. It's an easy and entertaining listen.

    I found this to be one of Kinsella's better books. The main character starts out entertaining and remains that way when usually Kinsella's characters get annoying at times. I found it interesting and kept my attention.

  • Nicole Orlando

    Somewhat predictable but it was a cute book. I enjoyed it and would definitely recommend. Sophie Kinsella's great.
