About The Book
About The Author, In Her Own Words
My name is Laura Barnard and I am an author from Hertfordshire, UK. I'm the chick-lit author of The Debt & the Doormat, The Baby & the Bride and Tequila & Tea Bags.
In my spare time I enjoy drinking my body weight in tea, indulging in cupcakes the size of my face, drooling over hunks like Jamie Dornan, Ryan Gosling and Leo Dicaprio...oh and my husband of course :-) I like wearing yoga clothes and reading fitness magazines while I sit on the sofa and eat chocolate. I'm a real fan of the power nap and of course, READING!
I write not to get rich or famous, but because I LOVE writing. Even if one person tells me they enjoyed my book it makes the midnight typing worth it
I am besotted with this book, it's easy to say the normal "I couldn't put it down" or the "I flew through the pages" but that wouldn't do it justice. This has to be for me one of the funniest books I have read in a long time, tears streaming down my face, strange seal clapping laughing and snorting it wasn't pretty but there isn't anything better than your abs hurting off a good books!
The story is all about Rose, who after some crazy antics is sent by her parents to live with her nun in training cousin in yorkshire instead of going to Mexico to be a club rep with her friends. Obviously for a young woman this isn't ideal, but there is a silver lining by mounting up volunteering hours in the local care home run by the broody but oh so yummy Will she could win a free trip abroad meaning she could meet her friends in Mexico. Rose is creative and crazy and to keep her position at the care home and win the prize she does the funniest things there are dead people buried in the garden and there are incontinent issues I was in bits, seriously Rose is hilarious!
The next thing I want to discuss are the supporting characters they are just as magnificent as the leading characters, theres Eloise the nun in training but is she really doing it for the right reasons, there's Betty one of the care home's residents who is the perfect adoptive grandmother a young woman could wish for. They were amazing you connected with them you rooted for them and the most touching scene in the entire book is between Rose and Betty I won't go into details as I don't like spoilers but it was beautiful, heartwarming and I even cried.
The book has all the right ingredients, it should be bottled it was bloody fantastic! I laughed, cried and had the sudden urge to ride a horse with polos in my pocket! Rose really grows as a person in this book, she is the best british twenty-something heroine I've ever come across, there are plenty of female role models but she is something special she is untamed, she hasn't had her heartbroken she isn't jaded by the world but she learns and we all could do with that!
