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!

Can I please give this book six out of five stars….?!!?! Thanks.
This is the fourth Siri Mitchell book I’ve read (see here: The Messenger, A Heart Most Worthy, and Unrivalled) and each one has been unique and noteworthy on its own. Love Comes Calling is by far my favorite. I think the author is immensely talented and from the variety of topics and flair that she gives to each book, it is obvious that she can write just about anything. This book especially spoke to me and has topped my list for best books of 2014. Here’s why:
- I love that this is written from the first person point of view and its a spunky heroine.
- I peeked at the back and read in the author’s notes that Ellis has a form of ADHD that is completely original to any story I’ve ever read. She wasn’t just being an “airhead” and had relatable flaws for today’s reader.
- Could there be a more noble, gentler, love you as you are kind of hero in this story. Dreamy, really.
- I love that the dialogue and inner monologue is realistic and what Ellis is really saying and thinking.
- Wonderful life lessons out the wazoo! A definite must-read for my 13 year old daughter.
- The last two pages brought a tear to my eye. Perfect ending.
- Lots of quotable moments that hit home for me.
