Sinossi

Handsome appearance counts for naught unless matched by good character and actions.

That's the firm opinion of not-so-meek minister's daughter Lavinia Ellison. So even though all the other villagers of St. Hampton Heath are swooning over the newly returned seventh Earl of Hawkesbury, she is not impressed. If a man won't take his responsibilities seriously and help those who are supposed to be able to depend on him, he deserves no respect from her. In Lavinia's pretty, gray eyes, Nicholas Stamford is just as arrogant and reckless as his brother--who stole the most important person in Livvie's world.

Nicholas is weighed down by his own guilt and responsibility, by the pain his careless brother caused, and by the legacy of war he's just left. This quick visit home to St. Hampton Heath will be just long enough to ease a small part of that burden. Asking him to bother with the lives of the villagers when there's already a bailiff on the job is simply too much to expect.

That is, until the hoydenish, intelligent, and very opinionated Miss Ellison challenges him to see past his pain and pride. With her angelic voice in his head, he may even be beginning to care. But his isn't the only heart that needs to change.

These two lonely hearts may each have something the other needs. But with society's opposition, ancestral obligations, and a shocking family secret, there may be too many obstacles in their way.

Fans of Georgette Heyer, Lori Wick, and Julie Klassen will enjoy the spirited exchanges between the bluestocking minister's daughter and the bruised war hero as they move past pride and presumption to a humbled appreciation of God's grace and the true strength of love.

5.0 su 5 stelle Loved it!! 10 marzo 2017
Di Merry Bell - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Jane Austen left this world with having written only 6 full works, but the world, two hundred years on, loved every word she wrote. We still love her manners and her wit. We love her romance and the way she showed her class for what they were - a bit snobbish. So what to do when you've read all of Jane's work over and over, and wish she'd written more. Read Carolyn Miller. The Elusive Miss Ellison was a trip back to Jane's Regency world. The language-perhaps not quite as intricate and intense as Jane's- brings the reader back into the parlours and drawing rooms of English houses. Lavinia Ellison is feisty and good, just as a Regency heroine should be. Lord Hawkesbury is handsome and rich, and just a little bit out of touch with those beneath him. In a way, the story is predictable, but to be perfectly honest, when I read a romance from this era, predictable is exactly what I want. I loved it, you'll love it too.

4.0 su 5 stelle If you struggle to get into it at first, keep going! 21 marzo 2017
Di Becky R. - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

I'll be honest: when I started reading The Elusive Miss Ellison, I wasn't sure what I'd gotten myself into. I had a hard time getting into the rhythm of the writing—I felt like I was reading something from Jane Austen's time, rather than something written now, and I encountered several words I was unfamiliar with. I also didn't have much love for either Lavinia—who was quick to judge, unforgiving, and prideful—or Nicholas—who was haughty and rather mean.

If I hadn't agreed to review this book, I might have given up about four chapters into it. And if I'd done that, I would have missed out on a really great story!

With shades of Pride & Prejudice and Beauty and the Beast, The Elusive Miss Ellison really picked up (at least for me) about a third of the way into the novel. At that point, events caused Lavinia and Nicholas to spend more time together and really get to know each other—to see past their preconceived notions. Also, both had a spiritual awakening of sorts—I was pleasantly surprised by the faith thread in this book, which felt realistic and showed the importance of not just having faith in Christ, but in allowing Him to continually refine you.

There's also a twist in the novel that I didn't anticipate and greatly enjoyed, and I loved the interactions between Lavinia and Nicholas, as well as with their friends and family.

The Elusive Miss Ellison is, overall, a very enjoyable novel, and I'm glad I kept going past the first few chapters! I highly recommend it to regency romance fans.

Disclosure of material connection: I received a copy of this book from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review, and the opinions expressed are my own.

Ms. Miller is one of my new “want to read and look forward to new books” authors.
If you like the writings of Jane Austin, you will love this book! It is 1843, the Victorian Era but the setting is in small village in England instead of a big city.
Lavinia Ellsion is the minister’s daughter. She lives with her father and her Aunt Patience who came to live with them after her mother’s tragic death. She steps to the beat of a different drummer than her friends. She casts aside the fluff of dress and stuffy conduct that her peers dote on. She thinks nothing of working in the garden without a hat or taking walks alone in the country. Both are big social faux pas for a young woman of that era. Her concerns are more with helping the needy and the poor.
The village is all a twitter with the coming of the new Earl of Hawkesbury, Nicholas. All the mothers are preening their daughters in hopes of making him their new son-in-law. Lavinia has no interest in finding a husband. Her concerns are more that the new earl does more to care for the poor and alleviate their suffering, one of his duties that came with the position. Nicholas is prideful, arrogant and selfish. He loathes the new job forced upon him by his social position.
No two people could be more opposites!
Lavinia is disgusted by his smugness and haughtiness. I found it amusing that she had the same attitude but hers came from her religious and strong sense of duty to the destitute, whereas his came from his sense of entitlement and no sense of duty to the people.
You can imagine the strong personality clashes as they are thrown together in many situations. We never know what circumstances life might throw our way or who will enter in that will challenge and change us. Such was the case with Lavinia and Nicholas. Tragedy opens the doors to their hearts and minds that would have otherwise stayed closed. Even as love blossoms, their Lavinia’s strong personality and stubbornness consistently sprouts misunderstandings and hurt.
A beautiful love story filled with surprises. I had no idea that earls had any more to do than have their titles and be rich. It was fascinating to learn about the operations and expectations in a small village during that era. I so enjoyed the book and look forward to the next one.
I was provided a review copy of this book set by Kregel Publications, with no expectation of a positive review. All opinions expressed are my own.

2.0 su 5 stelle Applauding the content, but did not enjoy the novel 23 marzo 2017
Di L. Hartness - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
The Ellusive Miss Ellsion has all the elements for the perfect read in my areas of interest. Set in 19th century England, we have two colorful main characters who struggle with some of the same issues found in Pride and Prejudice. There is the initial repulsion in their acquaintance. He comes from well-bred stock, while she is a meager minister’s daughter. There is at least one De Bourgh-like matron in the mix. The content is passionate, while still family friendly. Christians will appreciate the spiritual moments sprinkled through the narrative.

While I do commend author Carolyn Miller for the aforementioned choices, I am sad to say that I did not enjoy this novel. The amiable elements are there, but for some reason, I was not fond of the story. The characters seemed bland to me, and Miller’s writing wasn’t the strongest I’ve ever read. In fact, there were some overused phrases that became so frequent, they became an annoyance. The one in particular I’m thinking of is the mentioning of “flushed”, “heated” or “pinked” cheeks. It seemed on every other page, there was a mentioning of cheeks and how they were being warmed or tinted due to riled emotions, whether they be positive or negative feelings.

I do not want to be overly harsh in my criticism of The Ellusive Miss Ellison. While I did not find it fascinating, I can easily recommend it to lovers of Jane Austen, Georgette Heyer, Julie Klassen and other Christian authors, if only based on content-related issues. Perhaps others can look past the writing style, and perhaps they will find the characters to be more compelling than I did. As the beginning of a series, Ellison is a fair start, and perhaps as the collection continues, the storytelling will improve.

4.0 su 5 stelle Lovely Historical Romance 20 marzo 2017
Di Julie Danielson - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
This book was a regency novel, reminiscent of the Austen books, and I always enjoy reading stories from this period. The author captures the era well and the characters are well developed which always makes a story more enjoyable.

Set in 19th century England, this beautifully written novel will have you feeling as though you are right there. Lavinia Ellison is a young woman with heartache that clouds everything in her life. She is hurting from the loss of her mother and feels anger towards those she feels are responsible. Nathaniel has recently returned to the family home and he has a lot of issues of his own. He feels the responsibility of so much and some of it is really not at his doorstep.

I really loved the dialogue in this book. Very profound and memorable - you'll find yourself wanting to infuse your everyday conversations with some of the quotes. I also love that faith is a part of this book but in a natural, normal way. It plays an important part when it comes to forgiveness and that's what I really feel this book is about - learning to forgive, whether it's others or yourself.

The pace was a little slow in some places but I still enjoyed this book very much. If you enjoy a good historical romance, you'll enjoy this book. I give it 4 out of 5 stars.
