Review: The Debt and the Doormat by Laura Barnard

The Debt & The Doormat
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?

Claire's Review 5 of 5 Stars

Oh my how I loved this book! This was the first book I had read of Laura's and it most definitely won't be the last!

Poppy was one of the best characters I have ever read, she had me in fits of laughter several times and was just so relatable!

I thought the outcome of this book was quite predictable however mixed with the humour and the great style of writing it was very enjoyable and kept me hooked the whole way through. I would love to have a friend like Jazz in real life as she was so funny and unpredictable and there would never be a dull moment!

I cannot wait to dive into the rest of the series to see what else is in store for Poppy and Jazz, as I can imagine it would be rather colourful!
