A Taste of His Own Medicine by Linda Fawke

A Taste of Hiw Own Medicine Front cover

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.


Kate has been invited to her 30 year university reunion and is planning to use it to get back at the people who wronged her back then but will her life unravel as a result?
I’m not going to lie, Kate is at times a difficult character to like thanks to her desire for revenge and not being able to put things behind her. A part of me did however like some of her revenge plots and the cunning and determination to pull them off felt absolutely brilliant 
This book did take a lot of concentration to read as there are a lot of key characters and their story arcs with a lot of switches in narrator as each put their story forward. There was something in it that had me totally hooked, I’m not sure how to describe it but I couldn’t put this book down! 
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a story full of surprises, drama and plotting that will drag you in and not let you go
