I have loved Sophie Kinsella's books ever since winning a copy of 'Remember Me?' in a competition. I've now read the entire shopaholic series, so was pleased to get a copy of The Undomestic Goddess from readitswapit. ~The Story~ Samantha Sweeting is a top lawyer working in London. For as long as she can remember, all she has ever wanted in life is to become a partner at the law firm she works for, Carter Spink. Samantha works hard - often through weekends and all through the night, so doesn't get much time to herself, but she's not too bothered about that, as to her, work is the most important thing in her life. Finally the day ... Read the complete review
