Samantha is a high powered lawyer who is fired from her job and "disappears" from her life only to accidentally take a job as a housekeeper, a job she is wholly unsuited for.

This was a light read, though some of the plot points were a little far fetched (learning to cook a gourmet meal in a weekend after not cooking at all?), once you suspend your disbelief, it was enjoyable - just what I was looking for.

The changes from the high powered, workaholic life to one where she had the weekend off, followed by the pressure to return were interesting, as were the assumptions her employers make about her.

If you're looking for a light read, this will do the job.
