Here’s a fun House Party you might want to join. A group of fun authors has joined together to create a set of Regency period romances set at the same house party. I just finished reading Tabitha’s Folly in this set by Jen Geigle Johnson, and it was a fun introduction to this vacation (Regency style).
Here’s the blurb for Tabitha’s Folly:
Lady Tabitha Easton recklessly dodges four over-protective brothers while trying to gain attention from the man who holds her heart. She has many choices of suitors, and with Henry as disinterested as ever, she turns to what is wholly forbidden, an irresistibly handsome footman. While their friendship grows, her trust in him increases while her hurt and doubt in her childhood love and friend pushes her away from all she’s ever known as family.
When Lord Henry Courtenay discovers a new attraction to his childhood friend, his role as one of her chaperones at the house party becomes near impossible. Irrationally defensive about any potential suitors and seeking time alone with the enticing Tabby, maintaining friendship with her brothers proves more difficult than he ever imagined. His task becomes all the more difficult when she refuses to understand his growing attraction and often finds herself in almost compromising situations.
When Tabitha’s choices might lead her to danger, and doubt and distrust are high, Henry must prove himself or lose her forever.
This cute Regency story made me smile. Sweet innocent Tabitha comes to the house party with her four overly protective brothers and one of as her brother’s clueless best friends, who she has secretly been in love with for years. But he has only seen her as a friend…never more. Maybe she can change that at this house party. With a dashing footman thrown into the mix who seems to intuit her every need, annoying brotherly chaperones, and Henry’s hot and cold actions, Tabitha’s feelings quickly become muddled and conflicted. This was a quick read set in 1800’s England with all the proper Regency rules and rigid structures. The story was a little predictable, but still a fun and enjoyable read with likable characters that I liked sharing the ride with.
Now what are you waiting for? Get your frilly nicest dress on and catch the nearest carriage over to this Regency House Party NOW! Happy Reading.
