Kate Sanders has suffered many years of physical and mental abuse at the hands of her abusive husband Alan, and convinces herself that she is only holding the family together for the sake of her eight-year-old daughter. If it wasn't for her best friend Jill Reynolds, she would have taken the suicide option a long time ago.
As she desperately seeks a way to escape, she is contacted by a solicitor. Kate's old aunt has died and she has been left a small fortune.
For the first time, she sees the light at the end of the tunnel. She dreams of a fresh start, a new home, a new life. What Kate doesn't know is that Jill and Alan have their own secrets, and are both desperate to get their hands on her money.
Kate soon finds herself falling for the charms of Jonathon Jacobs in what she believes to be fate finally intervening and offering her a second chance, unaware that each move he makes has been directed, orchestrated and well-rehearsed as he begs her to leave her husband Alan.
But is it all too late, as she finds herself in the frame for murder
Hi, guys. It’s Sunday and this time I have another review for you. Today I am reviewing a psychological thriller, A Fool’s Circle, written by Suzanne Seddon.
Kate Sanders is a victim of an abusive husband. The only thing that keeps her staying in the marriage is her little daughter. But when a solicitor contacts her, things change in a positive way. Kate’s aunt dies and leaves her a lot of money. Kate sees this as a chance to make her way out of her marriage. Her only friend is Jill and she offers to help with the escape. That is what friends do, right? And Kate meets a new man, someone very different from her abusive husband. But is she capable to trust and love again?
At first, it seems like a light story. But things aren’t that easy, nor that predictable. Kate is in a trap. A multi-layered trap. Can she trust the people she loves? Or she should be afraid of her own shadow? Maybe the right question is: How much does she know the people around her?
A Fool’s Circle is a grippy psychological thriller. Every moment when you think that Kate is finally out, you are wrong! Something bad happens and she is in some kind of trouble again! Page after page, you remove one layer after another. Twist and turn-overs on every corner! A real emotional roller-coaster. I loved it!
I should have read this book long time ago. But my TBR list is so long. This is an excellent book. I liked it and hope to see more of this author in future.
