The Debt & The Doormat by Laura Barnard


Poppy and Jazz are the best of friends, but when they’re together trouble always seems to follow them around.  When Poppy gets into financial difficulties,  Jazz is determined to help out ,but she doesn't really bargain for the change in her life , which is what happens when she swaps Jazz’s life for her own. What then follows is a quirky and laugh out loud look at friendship, relationships and the sheer unpredictability of life in general.

Nicely written, and with a good eye for the ridiculous, the author has instilled in her characters a real sense of fun, and yet, the values of what is important, namely friendship and loyalty come shining through. On the whole this is a nicely done debut novel.  The writer shows a talent for this slightly quirky style of chic-lit and I am sure that her writing, in subsequent novels, will continue to go from strength to strength. 

My thanks to the author for an e-copy of this book in return for my unbiased review.
