As you d expect, the story is a sitcom come to life a work obsessed attorney loses her job in a dramatic way and then plunges alone into the countryside la Jane Eyre, only to wind up being taken in as a housekeeper by some nouveau riche couple The twist is get ready she doesn t know how to cook Or run a washing machine You can imagine the hilarity In fact, you have to imagine the hilarity, because there isn t much written for you That s not to say the book isn t entertaining It moves quickly, and it ends up validating the effort and skill involved in keeping house, which I liked Plus I found the nouveau riche couple to be oddly engaging Oddly because they reminded me of Southern caricatures written by someone who didn t know any actual Southerners and just created people out of stereotypes like a hick couple who hits it big in the tire business and moves into a mansion but doesn t know to lose the big hair and get grammar Of course the characters in this book are English, as is the author, which goes to show that mediocrity knows no nationality The big flaw is that even though this kind of book is bound to be contrived, it still needs to retain some believability I can buy stumbling onto the one house that would take in a stranger we buy it in Jane Eyre , finding skulduggery at work, true love next door, and a host of other improbabilities because at least they re possible But our heroine, in disgrace at her law firm, googles herself and finds a million entries about how she s become a national lawyer joke at one point the tabloid press even starts following her story The problem is that, in reality, lawyers show up on our radar only if we ve hired them A criminal defense attorney may have his day in the sun with a celebrity client, but other than that, who cares Quick name a contract attorney Anyone How about any kind of attorney you don t know personally The fact is that nobody cares if a lawyer loses her firm a lot of money and then becomes a housekeeper the whole public ignominy angle is too manufactured even for chick lit It reminded me of Shopaholic, where a would be fashion writer somehow becomes a national figure and then a national scandal How It s as though Sophie Kinsella is projecting some deep desire to be in the center of the public stage, holding the nation s microphone tearfully in hand Actually, I wouldn t mind that either, but only to rail on the government power grab and people who talk during movies I wonder if her Oh no The world is watching me during my moment of crisis fantasy was brought on by too much reality TV, or likely if reality TV exists precisely because so many people do have this desire for public display Chilling thought.At any rate, that s probably not enough to condemn the book It has its moments And I think if it had been written differently I would have had patience for the unrealistic aspects However, the style was so aggressively breezy that it became wearisome The author should have put effort into creating a story that holds together and less time trying so desperately to be witty.Mercy three paragraphs on a Costco paperback
