Audiobook Review: The Foolish Friend by Elizabeth Bramwell

Audiobook Review: The Foolish Friend by Elizabeth Bramwell

Synopsis: 
Lady Henrietta has been in love with her neighbour since she was eight years old, and always known they were fated to be together. Unfortunately for her, Lord Cottingham seems oblivious to the fact they were made for each other. When she is forced to acknowledge that James thinks of her as nothing more than a friend, she is determined to make him realise just what a diamond he has let slip through his fingers.

When James Douglas, Lord Cottingham, returned home after a year in Montreal, he expected life to be exactly as he left it. Life, however, has moved on without him, and even his best friend, Henrietta, has changed almost beyond recognition. Somehow she’s become the toast of the Ton, and the handsome, roguish Duke of Devenish seems to be particularly taken with her. James has never had to compete for Henrietta’s attention before, and has no idea how to regain the relationship he took for granted.

Both Henrietta and James struggle to make sense of their feelings, even as their friends and family insist on meddling in their affairs. While Henrietta needs to decide if James truly is the soul mate she’s always believed him to be, James must uncover the truth of his own heart before foolishly throwing away the love of his dearest friend.

The Foolish Friend can be enjoyed as a stand-alone novel or as part of the Regency Romps series.

My Review: 
Title: The Foolish Friend
Author: Elizabeth Bramwell
Format: Audio
Narrator: Julia Eve
Genre: Regency Romance
Standalone: Yes
Part of a Series: Book 2 in the Regency Romps series
POV: Mostly Henry and James
Steam Level: Clean
3.5/5

This started out so fun – with Henry’s unrequited love of her best friend and neighbor James. However, it quickly became drawn out and, frankly, a bit boring. There was a lot of unnecessary drama and hurt feelings. The story ends with no epilogue. Both James and Henry were TDTL and got annoying quick. The narration was fun with a bit of flair that was entertaining to listen to. Overall it was a quick, fun historical romance that keeps the audience entertained.

I received this audiobook for free from Audiobook Obsession. This is my honest and voluntary review.
