Book Review: Love's Suicide





Love's Suicide by Jennifer Foor: My heart belonged to Branch and Brooks Valentine since we were children, when we were all too naïve to know what that even meant. We didn’t understand that when we became adults, love would change us. I had to make a choice and when I did, it ripped our bond apart. Brooks left town, and he took half of my heart with him. It was difficult, but I coped and planned my future with Branch. I thought I’d made the right decision. I loved him and I always had.

Brooks showed up to be our best man the night before our nuptials. After drinks and too much reminiscing, I ended up in bed with the wrong brother. To avoid the humiliation and the fact that I’d ruined all of our lives, I left Branch and the only family I’d ever known.
That’s where my story should have ended.

Almost three years, one beautiful little girl and an abusive marriage later, I was standing there staring at the man that would always hold my heart.
The only question was…
Would I give it to him?
I’m Katy Michaels and this is my story.

Rosie's thoughts: Jennifer Foor has done it again, produced yet another brilliant story.

In Love's Suicide some really difficult subjects are covered such as domestic violence and the tragedy of 9/11. However, the author covers these with compassion and empathy.

Love's Suicide shows us how falling in love isn't always easy or straightforward. The heroine, Katey loves the Valentine twins from the day they met as babies. She always has a particularly special bond with the twin Brooks but due to a lack of communication she ends up engaged to Branch the other twin. The night before she was due to marry Branch she spends the night with Brooks. The next day she feels so guilty that she feels like she has to run away. On their night together Brooks and Katey made their baby girl 'B'.
Katey makes some bad decisions along her way. She keeps 'B' a secret from her family, allows an abusive man to marry her despite not being able to give him her heart.

These mistakes results in a lot of twists and turns in the story. Unfortunately her mistakes make me unable to connect fully to her character and I wish she would correct these mistakes sooner than she does!

This story shows us how fate and miscommunication can result in angst, sadness and time wasted.

I loved the character of Brooks and loved imagining him protecting Katey whilst wearing his army fatigues. When allowed he develops an amazing relationship with his daughter 'B' calling her 'Bug'. This is just so cute.
Overall I loved the storytelling and character development that Jennifer Foor always excels in.
