Sophie Kinsella

It was in Landmark that I was attracted by this bright yellow book.The prologue which went like this,
"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?"
was very catchy and immediately I grabbed the book and I never regretted it. Infact it impressed people who never liked novels before!!
Samantha Sweeting a sweet name like her character.
This book is must read for all those ladies out there who like Sweet romances and sometimes do think to quit work!!
Another wonderful book by the same author:
Can you keep a secret
