Although she can't even bake a decent loaf of bread, Samantha Sweeting finds herself employed as a housekeeper in a tiny town outside of London. Running from her job as a high profile attorney, and her life as an overstressed workaholic, she finds that this may be just the kind of escape she needs.
However, what happens if she's discovered as a fraud who can't change a lightbulb and her former boss discovers her hiding place and makes her come back and own up to the big mistake that drew her away from the firm in the first place? And of course, there is the question of what she will tell her new love interest when this all hits the fan.
This is a fun and inspiring book about getting to know the truth about the things you thought you always wanted. My favorite part of the book is the ending, which I won't give away. Suffice to say, I liked how it implied that you can do or be whatever you want even if it goes against what society says you should be. It's supposed to be throwaway beach reading, but I found that it really inspired me.
