4/5 Review: Pure Folly by Madelynne Ellis




Pure Folly is a historic, scary, and romance story.  Alastair is a gay man in a time where admitting such a thing can get you in a lot of trouble.  He falls in love with his cousin’s suitor.  They become best friends and it gets harder and harder to be around him without giving away how he feels.  During a dare Alastair and Jude have to spend the night in a haunted tower. Alastair is in a panic over it because he believes that his sister was possessed once as children. Jude is using this dare as a way to get close enough to Alastair to get him to admit what he feels for him and to see if something can out of whatever they discuss.  So much is revealed over the course of the night that it changes the course of their lives.  I loved Jude’s playfulness, and how he was able to draw Alastair out of his shell.  I will definitely be reading more of this author’s work.
