Review by Jenny Reeve
I give this book 4 stars
A Taste of His Own Medicine by Linda Fawke
Set around a 30 year University reunion.
This book is a good read overall with good plots. Kate Shaw is after revenge whilst she attends a 30-year reunion at her old University. There are a few old ‘Uni pals’ that need to be taught a lesson. The characters are very different from one another, which helps the story to unfold at a good pace. Some authors can drag a story out whilst introducing characters, but Linda does a very good job at keeping the saga steady.
Kate’s best friend Becky unwittingly gets dragged into helping Kate with the revenge plots, mostly by distracting others. Becky arrives at the reunion late and leaves early. There is a very exciting reason for her behaviour. You must read the book to find out what it is. It was unexpected that is for sure.
Jonathan is the best revenge of them all, but Kate has to make it worth the effort that she puts into organising the final act. A lovers revenge that has a real good twist at the end.
It was easy to read this story and I had to keep picking up my kindle to read more between doing work and chores.
Revenge can be bitter sweet…..so I am told. If you’re not careful it can backfire and hit you like a hammer on a nail.
How long can the desire for revenge last?
Kate Shaw, a successful pharmacist, goes to a thirty-year reunion at her old university and uses the weekend to settle some old scores. Her main target is her ex-lover, Jonathan. She decides to scar him for life as he scarred her. Her bizarre plan works but he shocks her with his strange, unwanted reaction.
What is the unexpected link between Jonathan and Kate’s husband?
What is the significance of the ‘Love Bite’ photograph?
What hold does Jonathan have over Kate?
Revenge is never simple.
A darkly humorous story of love, lust, loss and vengeance
