The Perfect Fool by Bethany Zohner Herbert
Plucked from the streets to become a court jester, Farrago’s life couldn’t be better, especially now that he’s flirting with scullery maid Thea. But when Thea turns out to be a queen in disguise, Farrago may become as much a fool in love as in his occupation. This medieval tale is filled with romance, humor, and twists that will keep you guessing to the last page.

My review: The Perfect Fool by Bethany Zohner Herbert
I enjoyed the rhythm of the book. It flows really nicely.
The characters were a fun bunch. Some really surprised me how they turned out and others I guessed right about them. Favorite minor character was Ana.
Farrago was the main character of the story. He brings laughter, caring and romance. I just wanted things to work out for him so badly. He was a good hero. The story is told from his point of view. He steals your heart.
Farrago was known as little thief. He saw a court fool juggling one day and he stole some of his balls and tried to learn how to juggle. So Fendral the court fool took little thief as a apprentice and taught him to be a fool and named him Farrago.
I would have broke like Farrago, but faster. Some scenes made me feel like something was crawling on me too.
I kept wondering how this story was going to end and if I would like it. Well I loved how it all came together. A perfect result for me.
The setting is in two different Kingdoms Seacrest and Gridian. In two different castles. The mode of transportation is the horse and walking.
Once I started reading I did not want to put it down.
I was given the Perfect Fool to read so I could give a honest review of it in return and be part of The Perfect Fool blog tour.
