I have found a new series to love! I’m a fan of books set in the Regency time period, so I had high hopes for The Elusive Miss Ellison. This novel lived up to my hopes and I was absolutely delighted with this enchanting story. I was also extremely pleased to find out that there will be two more books in this series. I can hardly wait!
I loved the setting and the pacing of this novel. It was very reminiscent of Jane Austen’s pacing, yet this author definitely created her own unique style in the story. I felt as if I truly got to know these characters and the various settings so well.
Lavinia was an absolute delight, from her desire to care for the poor to her inability to control her words at times around Nicholas Stamford, the new Earl of Hawkesbury. It was hard to watch Nicholas make mistake after mistake in the way he treated Lavinia and others. However, it made his journey of emotional and spiritual growth throughout the book even more appealing. The way the author worked on the hearts of these two characters as the story progressed was natural and refreshing. It kept me happily turning the pages!
I highly recommend this novel and am looking forward to when the future books in this series will be released!
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
