Hi everybody! Here is my next book review. I was very kindly sent a digital copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
‘A Fool’s Circle’ by Suzanne Seddon is a book that follows the story of a character named Kate Sanders who has suffered years of mental and physical abuse at the hands of her abusive husband, Alan. The only other people Kate has in her life are her daughter, Sophie and her best friend, Jill. That is until Kate is contacted by a solicitor who informs her that she has been left a small fortune by her old aunt who has passed away. Could Kate’s luck finally be changing? And could this finally be her chance for a fresh start with her young daughter away from her abusive husband? But what Kate doesn’t know yet is that her husband, Alan and her best friend, Jill have their own secrets and that they both want to get their hands on her money. Soon Kate finds herself falling for the charms of a man named Jonathon Jacobs, unaware that he has his own motives and that each move he makes has been directed, orchestrated and well-rehearsed. Things take an even messier turn for Kate when she finds herself in the frame for murder…
I thoroughly enjoyed reading ‘A Fool’s Circle.’ The book had me hooked from the very first page and I just couldn’t stop reading it! Although, I did find certain parts of the book difficult to read and at times quite distressing. Mainly when it came to the chapters that included Kate and Alan’s deeply abusive relationship and the domestic violence that she had to endure. But I do feel like the abuse Kate suffered was necessary to the story and needed to be included to show just how much she’d been through. I felt so much sympathy for Kate and her young daughter and as the reader I was hoping so much for them that they could find a way out from the abuse that was part of their every day lives.
I would like to thank author Suzanne Seddon for writing ‘A Fool’s Circle,’ such a truly gripping story that I have had the great pleasure of reading.
