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.
A truly fun read! I just love Siri's books and, like this one, usually devour them! LOL! Ellis is such a funny character! I LOVED her! She is totally spastic and yet completely lovable!!! Highly misunderstood her family drove me a little nuts with their opinions of her. But then there's Griff [deep swooning sigh ;) ]; he has got to be one of the best guys I've read about in a while! Or if not, he has made me forget the recent ones! LOL! He is so good!!!! There's no way Ellis' heart or mine stands a chance when he starts to speak! :D This is a completely entertaining and highly funny read, with a dash of conspiracy! I really wanted more faith scenes though, the moments God is mentioned I gobbled up I just wanted more! I also wish the story had gone a little father than it did; there were somethings I felt where left hanging when the book ended. I absolutely loved all the interesting historical details and opinions. Especially Siri's Author's notes and piece on Prohibition in the back. This book had a touch of almost everything for me, sad moments, mystery, interesting historical details, explanations of switch boards in clear detail, roll on the floor funny scenes, fabulous characters, and much more! I recommend this read! :)
