Love Comes Calling

GIVEAWAY

MITCHELL, SIRI
LOVE COMES CALLING

A girl with the best of intentions.
A heart set on Hollywood.
An empty pocketbook.
That's all it takes for Ellis Eton to find herself working as a telephone operator for a look-alike friend. For Ellis, this job will provide not only acting practice but the funds to get her a start in the movies. She's tired of always being a disappointment to her traditional Boston family, and though she can't deny the way he makes her head spin, she knows she's not good enough for Griffin Phillips, either. It's simple: avoid Griff's attentions, work, and get paid. But in typical Ellis fashion, her simple plan spirals out of control when she overhears a menacing phone call...with her very own Griff as the target.

With an endearing heroine as her lead, Siri Mitchell takes readers on a madcap tale of love and discovering one's true desires!


My Review:

Get ready to take a  crazy, madcap ride into the mind of one of the most engaging heroines in Christian fiction. The only way to do Ellis justice was to write her exploits in first person POV and Mitchell excels at this. Honestly, I was dizzy at times trying to keep up with all the ideas ping-ponging around Ellis's brain cells. Add in a sinister suspense thread and a besotted boy-next-door hero and you get sublime chaos. Brilliantly written. A fun read made all the more poignant because of the underlying message of self acceptance.
