    This charming tale of vivacious Lavinia and the proud Earl of Hawkesbury captured my heart and soul from the start. Lavinia is so atypical, which endears her to readers, and to Nicholas, as she stands up for herself and stands apart from the crowd. Her heart is fully entrenched in service, with little thought of herself, and because she's not caught up in the normal obsessions of society, she's deemed unworthy by some and an angel by others.

    Loneliness often disguises itself in interesting ways, but as these two solitary souls find themselves thrown together in unconventional situations, the prejudices slip away into a delightful account that truly warmed my heart. I love to see deserving people find happiness, just as I love it when judgmental and jealous people find out that karma isn't all that fun.

    There are many elements, some small and some monumental, that make this story enjoyable from start to finish.Most of thecharacters are easy to like and to relate to, although there are some to hate. The writing stylecauses the reader to feel immersed into the Austen Regency period, which is a fun escape. I loved the events that propel their spiritual and emotional learning forward. My only wish? I would have loved to have a little more romance--those sweet, tender feelings of emerging love.

    All in all, this is a great start to a new series--one that I'm looking forward to reading more of.

    Content: very mild romance; mild-moderate religious elements; very mild violence.

    I enjoyed this look at old England, and living in a quaint village, spending time with the Reverends daughter Miss Lavinia Ellison as she goes about helping those in need. She seems to have a big heart and is always there in times of need, but she has deep sorrow that comes out when the Lord of this village comes back, and we find out that she lost her mother because of something one of his family did.

    Of course this is a romance story, and Nicholas and Livvie have an up hill battle to every be anything more than a passing look. There is her faith, she is a believer, and he is not, and then there is his station as a Lord and she a commoner. I cant imagine living under such conditions, but not all of what we are viewing is true.

    This is the author debut novel and she sure doesnt disappoint, I found myself page turning, and when it was over, I wanted more. She has created quite the spunky girl in Livvie, and I loved how she held her own at different points in this book. A sweet quick read that will linger with you.

    I received this book through Kregel Publishing and their Blogging Program, and was not required to give a positive review.

    This review was written for The Elusive Miss Ellison - eBook.
    by Andrea Renee Cox

    When I first saw this book, I was immediately intrigued by the beautiful cover and the back cover copy. The story within was clearly inspired by Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, yet it holds its own flavor and style. I particularly enjoyed how circumstances pushed the characters to examine their behavior and make changes to improve themselves. The theme of controlling women losing the people they tried to control came through quite well, and I found this to be a direct reflection of real life.

    There were a few things I didn't like, including one expletive and several typos, but I am grateful for the opportunity to read this book by an author I had not before discovered.

    I'm a HUGE fan of Jane Austen and Carolyn's style reflects Jane's beautifully! Actually it has everything I LOVE, but isn't as hard for me to read as Jane's. And while The Elusive Miss Ellison took a little while for me to get into because it did require a little more brain power than some books ;) , I absolutely LOVED this book!!! Once I was used to the style and flow the story just carried me away! I did not want this to end! These two characters had SO much against them and their relationship! The turmoil was rampant!!!!! LOL! The cast of characters is fantastic! From the good to cheer for and the not so good to get frustrated with, and throw in some in between; everyone brings something different to the table! Nicholas for one is a character that starts out frustrating and troubled, but transforms into a great hero! I truly LOVE the Faith messages throughout; this book is filled with the truth of forgiveness and the peace of redemption!!!! Pride and prejudice yet it's own unique story; I can't WAIT for the next book!!!!! HIGHLY recommend this one!!!!!!!

    Songs to come, suggestions welcome! :)

    Songs etc. May be changed and/or added in the future. ~ASC
