Otherwise a great read. I was so happy it was clean.
For a novel containing an unrequited friends-to-lovers plot, Friday Dreaming is quite well done. To be sure, there is a fair amount of angst throughout as misunderstandings and hurt feelings abound. But there is good deal of enjoyable humor, and - more importantly - an undeniable feel of authenticity to the troubled romance. Maybe it's the fact that the hero is a generally honorable young man, all things considered, and has the highest respect for both the heroine and their friendship. Or the fact that the heroine's anguish is understandable, and yet she still makes a good show of being a sensible young woman. Whatever it is, Friday Dreaming comes off as a relatively sweet and genuine discovery of love.

Elizabeth Bailey is one of my favourite authors, her writing and story telling is so well crafted. Her characters are so well thought out and in this book Friday is a delight, she is so naive and so in love with Nick, she really didn't stand much of a chance, I could have shook her mother as she was no support at all. Friday had moments of having a 'back bone' but not too many or else she wouldn't have gone along with the ridiculous plans forced on her by Nick's sister Caro, in particular removing her spectacles, was so annoying to me, as it in effect removed her security and left her vulnerable. The 3 witches were vicious and I felt a need to cheer when Friday stuck up for herself, as her sponsors were rarely about when she needed their support against them. 'Sweet' Hermione and her mother were utter 'trollops' how they were entertained by the beau monde, and how Nick initially and Lord Aymestrey latterly were so drawn in, is beyond me, it just goes to prove (if we are to believe authors) that many men of the Regency period could see no further than a pretty face, and they deserved everything they got.
Friday finally got her Happy Ever After which was a pleasure to see.
As may be apparent by my review I really got into this story, and I would thoroughly recommend this book, and Elizabeth's work.
The usual authentic historical atmosphere is livened by a cast of varied characters. If you've ever been hopelessly in love then this is a book you will easily connect with - in the lightest possible way!
