Release Day! Dopey Women by Laura Barnard

Goodreads Rating: 4.75 of 5 Stars
Amazon Rating: 5 of 5 Stars

Sadie had a bumpy upbringing but she’s still managed to drag herself out and carve a career for herself. That all comes crashing down when she, along with the women she manages; Mags, Lexi & Steph, get made redundant. She’s screwed. In hindsight she shouldn't have attacked her colleague in a moment of rage. There goes the reference. 

When they all bump into each other a few months later at the job centre Sadie finds she’s not the only one in a hole. Steph’s boyfriend has left her holding the baby, Lexi’s stuck in an abusive relationship and poor Mags has breast cancer. They’re all struggling to keep on top of their bills. They all need money to get out of their situations, its as simple as that. 

Mags mentions that some women find marijuana helps ease the sickness caused by chemo. With the desperation mounting and the coffee spurring them on they somehow decide to start growing it. They’re only going to sell to ladies going through chemo, so its not too bad, right? They’re not going to be proper drug dealers. And its only temporary. 

They didn’t bet on the business taking off so well though. Before they know it they’ve got orders coming out of their ears, a sexy detective on their trail, suspicious neighbours and drug dealers angry they’re working on their patch.

 Can Sadie pull them out of this dangerous world they've found themselves in?  And can she do it before they end up in prison?

( I received this ARC free form the Author in exchange for my honest review )

 Oh wow, I loved this book. 

The plot was not only unique, it stayed on point, never lost focused, and it was surprising. I loved all the characters, their struggles and just connecting with each one on a emotional level. 

I never knew I could feel so much for fictional characters as I have with these woman. Each struggle, heart break, happiness, and joy, I felt. I was sad when this was over, but fulfilled. For me I felt that there where no lose ends, or questions unanswered. 

The road to rebuild was touching, but the way it was written, I couldn't stop laughing. Witty, fun, and consent I was never bored. Throw in a sexy detective, that is always around the corner, and you have the perfect mix for an out-of-this-world romcom.

 There are very few books that I can read in one sitting, and this was one of them. To me the ability to write a world so captivating that you are lost with in it's pages, is pure magic. To make me laugh out loud, will that pure witch craft. 

I highly recommenced this book, it's what a romantic / friendship comedy should be. It has everything you want and more. 

I would like to thank Laura Barnard giving my the opportunity to read this astonishing work of art. 

Happy Reading
