ARC review: Dopey Women by Laura Barnard

ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review. 
What can I say? It was amazing. I enjoyed this book a lot! From the first page the story sucked me in and wouldn’t let go. I read in one sitting. Maybe 4-5 hours? It was that Good!
The story flows perfectly and characters are brilliantly developed. Simply amazing. 
The main character, Sadie, after 10 years at her current job she has been made redundant. Gone her years of hard work, of long hours. One day, during job search, she bumps into 3 other ladies that were made redundant together with her: Lexi, Mags and Steph. They decide to catch up. 
All of them start to tell their stories after they lost their jobs. Mags, who lost her job and a husband, found out she has a cancer. Steph became a lonely mother after her boyfriend decided she is not it and run away. Lexi also have a sad story: she is in abusive relationship and is not sure how to reclaim her freedom. 
After a long catch up they decide to do something. Something that will help not only them but other people. And what they decide? No. Not put a company together or anything like that. They found themselves doing drugs. 
This causes them to be on a radar of a big bad drug lord and also police. 
I will not tell you the rest as you have to read it!!
Amazing 5 stars!!
