Publisher's Description

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!

    I love fictional history novels! This story begins in May of 1924. Ellis Eton is the main character who is a bit frustrating but has good intentions and no money. Thus to help out a friend she takes a job as a telephone operator and the mystery begins. Overall I enjoyed this story and the characters of Ellis and Griff. At times a bit slow moving, but the author ties up the story very well at the end and I was a satisfied reader.

    Publisher gave me this book to read, give my opinion and review.

    Ellis Eton may be about broke, but at least her life doesn't lack for excitement. As the semester at Radcliffe College comes to an end, she's managed to write, direct and act in her own play while planning her Hollywood career and avoiding the attentions of Griff Phillips. When she agrees to fill in for her friend, Janie, as a telephone operator, Ellis jumps at the chance to play the roll of someone else. However, Ellis' plans begin to unravel as she finds Janie's job is more complex than simply assuming a role. When Ellis accidentally overhears a plan to hurt Griff, it's up to her to make sure he stays safe. Keeping him safe is more difficult than expected and puts her together with him more than she should be. Will she be able to save his life and keep their relationship platonic? Read more in Love Comes Calling by Siri Mitchell.

    Love Comes Calling by Siri Mitchell is a stand-alone novel set in the Roaring Twenties. Prohibition, a big issue during that time period, was a significant part of the book. I thought Love Comes Calling excelled in dealing with the dilemma of attempting to legislate morality through the characters' dialogues, actions and consequences. I would have liked more romance in this book. It seemed that while Ellis and Griff's relationship did progress, it didn't really deepen until perhaps the final scene. I liked the character development. Ellis seems to be an air-head in the beginning, but develops into a very likeable, well-intentioned, somewhat distracted heroine. Though categorized as a Christian romance, there are only a few references to God and one reading of Scripture. Some people like this while others prefer more spiritual development. For me, the spiritual content was a bit too light. I think it could be categorized as clean, secular fiction.

    In conclusion, Love Comes Calling by Siri Mitchell was a quick, enjoyable read. I recommend it to fiction readers who are looking for a little humor and a sweet story.

    What a wild, fun ride for readers who love humor, history and endearing, captivating characters.

    This is my first read from Siri L Mitchell. It was a wonderfully fun read - like taking a trip down the rabbit hole on the heels of Alice in Wonderland. The characters were lively and fun; especially the main heroine, Ellis Eton. Mitchell writes her in first person point of view and brings the reader right into the crazy and roller-coaster-ed thoughts of this undoubtedly ADD character. It was at times dizzy-ing to keep up but I felt that Siri Mitchell did an excellent job of bringing a balance back to the reader.

    The story was intriguing to follow the mystery that Ellis must solve. It brought her into the underworld of the prohibition. I found the setting and context very interesting and fun to read. The suspense is not edge of your seat but the crazy antics of the heroine will keep you turning pages to find out what she will do next.

    A fun, light read. However some might find the scattered thoughts of the heroine distracting. I definitely recommend this book but suggest you try a sample chapter if you are unsure about the character's flightiness. I knew from the first few pages I would love the first-person account of this character.

    Thanks to Bethany House and Baker Publishing for a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    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.

    This is the third book that I have read by Siri Mitchell. When I first started reading this book I did not think that I would like it. As some other readers have mentioned, the character has A.D.D. and I found her annoying. It wasn't until Ellis started working as a hello girl that the book started to get interesting for me. I actually enjoyed reading about the process of taking and transferring calls. At that point I started to get interested in the storyline. There were still moments where I found Ellis annoying, but there were also moments where I could relate to her. Griffin wasn't a huge character in the book, but I did like him and the love story between him and Ellis. I was annoyed with how Ellis acted towards him for a big portion of the book because she planned to move to Hollywood. Overall I think it was a good book. Siri Mitchell writes well and before I knew it I was done with the book. It's not my favorite, but I would recommend it; it's a fun story.

    I received this book for free from Bethany House Publishers for my honest review.
