Love Comes Calling: A Book Review

About The Book:

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:

Siri Mitchell has been a favorite historical fiction author of mine for some time now, and with each book I read I grow to love her more. I was so excited to read her new release, Love Comes Calling. And was not disappointed in the least. 

I was drawn into the world of the 1920's almost immediately and with romance, humor and amazing characters, this was a very hard book to put down. It was clear by the amazing descriptions of life in that era, and the very developed characters that Mitchell loves the research she does for her novels. You will learn about the social and political issues from the "Roaring 20's" but also that God loves us where we are, uses us and through using us, changes us! The addition of a little mystery was a great addition to the plots in the book as well. A fun read for certain.

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
