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.

The beginning of this book was slow going for me.  I wasn't convinced I was going to like this book at all but thankfully things picked up and I ended up really enjoying myself.

This is supposed to be a "medieval" tale but it reads more like contemporary fiction.  The setting is in a more medieval time but the characters do not talk or act as such.  Which is fine, but just don't go into this book thinking you are getting a authentic feeling medieval tale.

I didn't love Farrago at first but he grew on me.  By the end I was a Farrago fangirl.  The book is told from his perspective only, so by the end I really felt like I knew Farrago and understood him more completely.  He really is a good guy.  :)

There is a fun cast of characters, a bit of intrigue and a happily ever after ending that wasn't completely what I was expecting.  I liked that.
