The Debt & The Doormat

~ I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~

Synopsis (from Amazon):  Poppy and Jazz have been best friends from the first week of university. Whenever these two get together trouble isn’t far away and things haven’t changed much. When Jazz gets herself into financial trouble Poppy, being a good friend, offers to help. She instead ends up being talked into swapping lives, with Jazz insisting it will be good and help her get over her broken heart. 

Poppy is thrown into a new life, full of crazy housemates; there’s fitness freak Izzy, horrendously beautiful bitch Grace and the slightly gorgeous, if not incredibly grumpy Ryan. Quickly, with the help of Jazz, her life is thrown upside down. Madness ensues and her need to please everyone gets her in more trouble than she could ever imagine. 

Before she knows it she’s got a fake boyfriend and is hiding so many secrets she’s scared they’ll spill out any minute. With a bullying boss, a sex crazed colleague, a mental mother and three brothers each with their own dramas, life has gotten pretty difficult for Poppy. And all of this would be much easier, if she could just stop falling over. 

Will she get her life back to normal before her brother’s upcoming wedding? And will she want to? 

One (or more) Sentence Summary:  Give me more of Poppy and Jazz. I loved them and laughed all the way through the book. I love chick lit books but with everything going on in the world, reading a book that makes me escape and laugh is priceless. The Debt & The Doormat did just that for me.

 I really relate to Poppy!  Always trying to do the right thing, responsibilities first, fun last.  However, most bizarre things happen to Poppy that had me laughing until my sides hurt.  Two best friends there for each other through thick and thin or wax and glue! 

Loved all the characters.....Poppy's family (all brothers and a crazy mom and aunt), Grace, Izzy, and Ryan who share a house with Jazz (but Poppy and Jazz switch places), Poppy's co-workers and boss and Poppy's neighbors (setting a fire - OMG!). Love it so much I have started book 2 - The Baby & The Bride (still loving it and laughing)!  

I think Melanie Summers and Laura Barnard should write a book together.  I would love to see Poppy and Jazz met Tessa and Princess Arabella (the Crown Jewel/A Crazy Royal Love RomaticComedy Series).  

Would I Read Other Books by the Author:  I have started book 2 - The Baby & The Bride!! I have also read Once Upon A Wish-Mas, Excess Baggage, Tequila & Tea Bags, Bagging Alice (review coming soon), and Porn Money & Wannabe Mummy (review coming soon).  I also want to read Love Uncovered (Book 2 of Babes of Brighton Series), Adventurous Proposal, Sex, Snow and Mistletoe, Marrying Mr. Valentine, and Cock & Bull.  Honestly, anything by Laura Barnar - count me in!  

Laura Barnard lives in Hertfordshire, UK and writes romantic comedy or 'chick lit' as its so often described. In her spare time she enjoys drinking her body weight in tea, indulging in cupcakes the size of her face and drooling over hunks like Jamie Dornan, Ryan Gosling and Leo Dicaprio. She enjoys wearing yoga pants and reading fitness magazines while sitting on the sofa eating chocolate. She's a real fan of the power nap and of course READING! She writes not to get rich or famous, but because she LOVES writing. Even if one person tells her they enjoyed her book it makes the midnight typing worth it!
