Author Laura Barnard reached out to me asking if I would like to talk about her debut novel The Debt & The Doormat. One look at the cover and the blurb and I knew this would be an interesting chic-lit novel to have, especially for those light, fun reads when you want something lovely yet light to read and enjoy.
So here's a blurb that pretty much tells you why you should be going for it: Isn't the cover absolutely gorgeous???? :-)
Poppy and Jazz have been best friends since the first week of university. Whenever these two get together trouble isn't far away, and things haven't changed much over the years. 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 will 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 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?
Wow, that was one fun blurb, wasn't it? Here's where you can find the book:
