Miss Lavinia Ellison isn’t happy that the new Earl of Hawkesbury has arrived. He reminds her of his brother who helped cause the death of her mother. The villagers, primarily the mothers and daughters, are excited that he’s there. He isn’t attached to anyone, so he is free to choose any of them.
The Earl of Hawkesbury, Nicholas, isn’t happy to be there. He feels crushed by guilt, ancestral obligations, and the war he fought in. He discovers that Lavinia is quite different, but they may never be able to be friends, due to their pasts.
Will they become friends? Will he find love in the country? Can Lavinia put the past to rest?

The Elusive Miss Elison was well written. I never should have started reading it at night. I couldn’t put it down. It was a late night for me!
I don’t always like reading books about Regency England, but I loved reading this one. Lavinia, Nicholas, Sophia, and all of the other characters were so well developed that I felt like I was there experiencing their lives. I especially enjoyed the dialogue and bantering between Lavinia and Nicholas. I thought it was nice that the class difference, Lavinia is the daughter of a minister, didn’t make a difference to either of them. It did matter to many of the other people in the village.
There were many surprises in this book, but you’ll have to read it to find out more. You won’t be able to put it down.
There is another book in the series, The Captivating Lady Charlotte, coming in the future. I can’t wait. I’m sure I’ll be writing a review, so stay tuned.
