Jaz has no reliable income and likes to live large in town, forgetting her financial situation. When Jazz, her best friend, gets into a financial crisis, she insists on offering help even if it’ll mean making her life look crazy.

Poppy decides that Jazz will have to stay in and not waste money and soon will have a debt paid off. Jazz agrees, but on one condition, they swap lives where she’ll stay and live a boring life without spending any money.

Poppy, however, should go out and spend as much money as possible. They decide to swap their lives, hoping the Poppy will rub off on Jazz. However, what Poppy didn’t expect is for Jazz to also rub off on her. They also agree to swap rooms until the deal expires.

Poppy gets a new roommate named Ryan, who, even though looks gorgeous, he’s so moody and mysterious after switching rooms. She is soon thrown into the deep end, and her new roommates call her crazy. Could Ryan have more to him than the playboy known to date models?

How she gets talked into swapping lives with her best friend Jazz, she can’t understand. She knows how messy the friend’s life is, but she is now living it. Poppy didn’t know that swapping lives would end up affecting her instead. She gets into many sticky situations since she’s always trying not to hurt others’ feelings, leading to some funny consequences.

Poppy finds herself doing everything wrong, and her plan for helping people backfires and falls flat on her face.

Anyway, that doesn’t matter much; after all, she’s too busy trying to mend her life, her pushy mother, three brothers, and her bullying boss, each having their dramas. However, Jazz will always find some trouble everywhere he goes. Disaster and drama appear to follow her everywhere she goes.

Poppy must live a little as Jazz needs to pay her credit cards. It’s a story about swapping lives where Poppy moves into a shared house and Jazz learns to stay alone.

They switch their lives for some time and make a deal that they’ll do whatever the other wants them to, even if it means having a one-night stand and saying yes to everything. Poppy is pushed out of her comfort zone; what happens next is a crazy and surprising story.

Can Poppy return to her orderly life, or will she prefer the unorthodox setup she has found herself in?

The cast of characters is fun and will have the reader laughing out loud severally. Each character is well developed from the beginning to the end.

Jazz is the kind of friend that you adore and, at the same time, want to struggle with. The Debt and The Doormat is a hilarious story about the adventures and misadventures of two best friends. They are two ladies, utterly opposed to each other to a point you might wonder how they became friends.

Among the delicate situations in the story is the one involving infidelity, and the parties involved are related to Poppy. She red-handedly caught the cheating couple and is confused about how she’ll let the two partners know what’s happening. She is scared that the truth will break their marriages but will she stay shut when her brother is being made a fool of.

The story will have you bursting with laughter, then the other minute; she’ll show you how the character does not have a perfect life as they deal with their issues.
