Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

My #Review of A Taste of His Own Medicine by Linda Fawke #BlogTour


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.

My Review:

Wow – I never realised the intrigue and shenanigans in the world of pharmacists! This is a story in which Kate Shaw is convinced by her husband to attend the thirty year reunion of the pharmacists who all graduated with her. When her friend and fellow graduate, Becky, agrees to go, too, Kate decides to go with plans to get her revenge on some of them who she believes blighted her university life . . . . including Jonathan, her ex-lover, and a few others!!

Get ready for memories, apologies, plots, revelations, schemes and surprises in this fun story of vengeance complete with unexpected twists – especially in the final chapters – as this group of over fifties get together again for the first time and revisit their past encounters. Revenge is a dish best served cold? See what you think!

Thank you to the author for my copy of this book which I have voluntarily read and honestly reviewed.
