Ellis Eaton has always felt she's been a disappointment to her stuffy, traditional Boston family. Her sights are set on something entirely different: Hollywood. Though she's captured the eye of Griffin Phillips, she knows that "dutiful wife" is one role she can't picture herself playing--even if he makes her head spin and her heart quicken. Besides, Ellis seems to make a mess of any situation, despite her good intentions. She's simply not worthy of an up-and-comer like Griff. When a look-alike childhood friend begs Ellis for a favor, Ellis finds herself working shifts at the city telephone exchange. At first Ellis believes this will be the acting practice she needs to prepare for life in the movies, but the job is far more complicated than she'd ever imagined, and Ellis finds herself in her usual scrapes. After accidentally overhearing a call that makes her blood curdle, Ellis fears for Griff's safety. Then handsome policeman Jack Flanagan comes to the scene, adding to the mayhem. With her job on the line and her heart all a-muddle, Ellis unexpectedly discovers what might be her role of a lifetime.

"Morgan Hallett certainly had to keep up her energy level while narrating this 1920s screwball mystery featuring the chaos-attracting, fast-talking Ellis Eton. As Ellis is impersonating her friend, Janey, a telephone operator, to earn some much needed money so she can get herself to Hollywood, she overhears a threat to hunky Griffin Phillips, her next-door neighbor. Ellis's efforts to navigate life with her hoity-toity family, save Janey's job, catch the villains, and make it to Hollywood provide plenty of opportunity for Hallett to shine. Using slight differences in tone for the characters and keeping up the frantic pace, she delivers an entertaining story. A.C.P. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine"
