  • A captivating and thoroughly enjoyed read!

    The Elusive Miss Ellison is as captivating as its title, enticing you to read from cover to cover. I thoroughly enjoyed the romance and misadventure and can't wait to read the next installment of the Regency Brides series. As a long time devoted Jane Austen fan, I am impressed with the authenticity and eye for detail Carolyn Miller injects into her writing transporting you into another era.

  • The Elusive Miss Ellison

    The Elusive Miss Ellison is the intriguing start to Carolyn Miller’s Regency Brides: A Legacy of Grace series. I thought this was a very good read. Lavinia and Nicholas’ story was one that I really enjoyed. I adored them both and I loved watching them grow throughout. They had to learn some important lessons of forgiveness, hope, love and faith. There were a few twists and turns I did not see coming. It was so very good. I am giving The Elusive Miss Ellison four and a half stars. I am looking forward to reading the next installment from the Regency Brides: A Legacy of Grace series, The Captivating Lady Charlotte, to see what happens next. I recommend this one for readers who enjoy clean and inspiration Regency Romance. I received The Elusive Miss Ellison from the publisher. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.

  • Clean, Regency Romance with Life Lessons

    Looking for a clean, Regency romance with Christian values? The Elusive Miss Ellison by Carolyn Miller is a good choice. This was my second time reading the novel, and I daresay, I enjoyed it just as much the second time around. Lavinia Ellison is a poor reverend’s daughter who lives with her father and aunt in Gloucester, England in 1813. There is much ado when the newest Earl of Hawkesbury Hall returns to his country estate. Lavinia holds Hawkesbury guilty of many sins, and she is the one young lady unaffected by Nicholas’s wealth and prestige. Somehow, this makes her very interesting to the earl. I liked the quick wit that we see in Lavinia and Hawkesbury. Sometimes I wanted to shake them into talking to each other more honestly. Miller seems to make the point that pride and prejudice can be a two-way street. Lavinia is certainly quite surprised to discover this shortcoming in herself, while she holds many faults against Nicholas. “How often do we hold sins against others, whether they be petty, imagined slights, or even grave miscarriages of justice, while allowing our own weaknesses to slip through our fingers of blame?” Miller’s prose holds dry humor that often caused me to grin, even as I wondered how long Lavinia and the earl could treat each other so poorly. An unexpected twist totally changes the story in a way I had totally forgotten and didn’t see coming. “A handsome appearance counted for naught unless matched by good character and actions.” So opines our heroine, yet the amount of change required of Nicholas was tremendous. I often forgot this as I got impatient with the earl’s indecisiveness and inability to choose one straight course of action. Quite a few tidbits of wisdom are included in the novel, many of them spiritual. One that rang especially true: “All things are forgivable when we realize how much we’ve been forgiven.” The Elusive Miss Ellison is definitely a recommended read. I received a complimentary copy of the book from the author and publisher through Celebrate Lit. I am voluntarily leaving this review. All opinions are my own.
