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!
What a fun book and heroine. This is the second book I have by Siri and so far I like this one the best.
For whatever reason Ellis grabbed me and didn’t let me go. I loved her character. But the truth is, if I met her in real life she would drive me crazy. She is so disorganized and unreliable. Siri did a great job of writing her scattered thoughts yet kept the reader from loosing interest.
My heart also broke for Ellis because her family is horrible to her and she doesn’t’ feel worthy of the love of the man she desires. Yet I see this is a beautiful picture of how Jesus pursues each of His children. We aren’t worthy but Jesus makes us worthy. We don’t have to clean ourselves up to be loved by Him, he picks us up in our sin, or brokenness and wipes away the tears and whispers that He alone can make us worthy.
A truly wonderful book and I highly recommend this one to anyone who loves a good historical.
