The Debt & The Doormat

17 Oct

This book is far from my usual read, something about it caught my eye as I was perusing the free kindle books.  Definitely a chick lit holiday read with a whisper of Bridget Jones about it we have two gal pals one the sensible, employed PA with flat and little social life, no love life, preferring the chocolate DVD entertainment, often clumsy and accident prone and the other the daughter of late millionaire with too much social life, too much love life, house sharing, never worked, exuberant zest for every day.  Deb befalls the exuberant Jazz,while boredom with an edge of gullibility attacks Poppy, they decide the solution is to swap lives.

The book follows more the explosive effect this has on Poppy’s every day, her bullying boss, her ‘doormat’ label as she tries to please everyone and the disasters that she seems to attracts – getting mugged – getting arrested – white lies that escalate into full soap opera dramas – bumping into the ex with his plastic new amour.  Threaded through this is the handsome, dashing, infuriating, confusing and mild super hero skills of Ryan.  You know they are going to get together, but not before they almost half kill each other.

A very fun light read, and my 35th book of the year!!

Off to find the next free one [not allowed to buy anymore Big Sis has declared I have to put them on my christmas list].

    I’m reading ‘An instance of the fingerpost’ A bit heavy but an interesting take on the murder mystery theme!
