The Undomestic Goddess

The Undomestic Goddess

by Sophie Kinsella

Kim Sisto Robinson: "The Undomestic Goddess" will satisfy the reader's quench for her inner chickness. Sure, it may be a little predictable, a little fluffy, a little chicky, but Kinsella's books are so feathery and fluffy and fun that it's okay to admit our addiction to these little gems.

A high-powered lawyer, Samantha Sweeting, ends up working as a housekeeper after being fired wrongly from the best law firm in London. Samantha has no idea what she is doing because she doesn't cook or clean or even know how to run a vacuum cleaner. This is what makes the story line interesting and quirky. Okay, now the interesting part. Samantha meets the gardener. I imagine he looks a bit like Bon Jovi without the guitar. Ahhh--Nice. A little flirting, a little sex in the raspberry patch, a little smearing of sticky red berries squashing beneath bodies....Interested yet?

Samantha finds out more about herself as undomestic goddess than in her position as a high-powered lawyer. For example, how to create a lovely, homemade loaf of bread, how to make a cherry pie from scratch,and how to make love in a garden without landing in poison ivy. I appreciate escaping inside Kinsella's books...the fun, fluff, and femaleness makes me smile. Hey, after reading some heavy-duty material and watching the horrible news happening all over the world, "The Undomestic Goddess" and other Kinsella novels are welcome medicine for the weary soul.
