Dopey Women is like no other book of fiction that I have read before. I had no idea what this title meant but I found out and it makes complete sense now.

There are some LOL moments but also the seriousness of selling drugs. They ...more

Her writing style has something different. I don’t know how she manages to talk about every topic in the world in a funny and light way that makes me enjoy her books very much!

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 elsewhere.
Highly recommend th ...more

Before I start writing my review, I want to say a huge thank you to @laurabarnardauthor for kindly sending me a copy of this book. It’s been on of my favourite of 2021 so far.
This book had my laughing out loud. It was just the book I needed to read to really boost my mood.
I fell in love with all the girls and fell for the very dashing detective 🥰
