Today I want to tell you about something that is tons of fun! The Regency House Party: Somerstone series. I did a book blast for this whole series last week. But I was able to read Jen Geigle Johnson’s contribution, Tabatha’s Folly this week. And the author has graciously offered to do a $25 giveaway in conjunction with this review. So let’s get started!

About Tabatha’s Folly

regency house partyTabitha’s Folly is one of Five books all set at the same Regency House Party Series. While each is a standalone story, watch our characters mingle together with others from the books in the series. The stories can be read in any order.

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.

My review

Oh my goodness! This is probably my very favorite Regency Romance I’ve read! And what makes it even better is that there are the other 4 books of the Regency House Party still to read, as well as a novella. (All links below!)

Tabitha, or Tabby, as she’s known by her four crazy brothers and their friend Henry, is a clever character! I loved her. Her courage, and her spunk were some of my favorite things about her. I also loved the way she deals with her brothers as they try to take her choices away from her. She has a ton of patience to deal with all 4 of them and their crazy whims as to who she can spend time with or not.

Then there’s Henry. Most of the time, Tabby’s brothers trust him. But he appears to all of a sudden develop feelings for Tabby. And that makes his brothers start to distrust him. I loved the way he watches out for Tabby any way that he possibly can. I loved how clever he was and sneaky too. He finds ways to get around Tabby’s brothers almost constantly. 

Tabby’s brothers are some of my favorites! I loved their cleverness and the way they each had their own distinct personalities. I’m really hoping to see each of them again in their own story!

This Regency Romance has it all. Danger, romance, clever one liners. This is one you won’t want to miss! Get your own copy! And if all of the other books in the Regency House Party: Somerstone series are as good as this one, you can bet I’ll be reading them right away.

I borrowed a copy of Tabitha’s Folly from the Kindle Unlimited Library.
