The Housekeeper

51nfXhLYvVL._SX320_BO1,204,203,200_The Housekeeper by Suellen Dainty was thematically very much like Here’s to Us by Elin Hilderbrand. While somewhat heavy, it was a quick and light read that wasn’t too taxing. Anne is a chef working at her boyfriend’s restaurant, until she realizes that he is seeing someone else. Crushed, she leaves both the boyfriend and the job. She wallows in self-pity until she realizes that she would like to head in a different direction for a while. She becomes the housekeeper and chef for a self-help guru and her husband, a professor and writer. While working for them, she discovers that the psychologist who the husband is writing about treated her schizophrenic mother. You could 100% see the ending coming, which was too bad, but the story was decent and kept me entertained (low bar, perhaps).
