There are some LOL moments but also the seriousness of selling ...more
I’ve read a few of her books (see blog for my reivews) and happily still have a few in reserve for when I need a pick-me-up.
I love the way this author writes. It is an easy to read style which pulls you into the story. There is so much humour but there is a serious aspect to the story and characters which had me laughing out loud in some parts and shedding a tear elsew ...more

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 was sad when this was over, but fulfilled. For me I f( ...more
I love Laura Barnards writing style. It has everything you want romantic, gripping, hilariously funny, sexy and just brilliant.
Dopey Women is just WOW.
From the start I was laughing so hard, I sent Laura a message to say you need to wear Tenna Ladies to read this book.
There are a few main characters in this book and they all work so well together. Sadie and her girls bounce off each other, and Harry is just yummy yummy.
My favourite two are Sa ...more
The reason that i love Laura's stories is because you always relate to the characters, these women could be you or your best friend and that makes it more real. Sadie is no different.

Laura Barnard writes the kind of stuff I love to read - potty-mouthed heroines and steamy sex scenes. Uh huh. Dopey Women lays it on thick and juicy. Sadie is a terrific lead character - smart, caring but not immune to the occasional act of stupidity. She's supported by a fun cast of misfits, each endearing in their own way and ...more
