In Perfect Time

Sundin, Sarah. In Perfect Time. Grand Rapids, MI: Revell Publishers. 2014.

SUMMARY:
timeArmy Air Force WWII flight nurse, Lt. Kay Johnson, is charming, attractive and bright; however, due to her past, it is difficult for her to overcome her fears and uncertainty. Straddled with his own past burdens, pilot Lt. Roger Cooper finds himself just as scared of a relationship. Will helping the injured bring them together? Will finding God and faith have an impact? Is there even a chance for the relationship due to their pasts? Perhaps…

A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
A new author, a new series, a new time-frame and a new topic all played out in this one book for me. I wasn’t sure what to expect but it was more than I expected. With an exciting storyline, vivid descriptions of aircraft and the period in history, intense scenes and of course, a bit of sweet romance all mingled with finding grace from God, In Perfect Time was truly a treat. Part of the Wings of the Nightingale series, this is the third installment. Although it could be read as a stand-alone as I did, it piqued my interest enough (and I enjoyed Sarah Sundin’s writing enough), to return to the two previous novels in the series to peruse.

RATING:

A Most Peculiar Circumstance

Turano, Jennifer. A Most Peculiar Circumstance. Bloomington, MN: Bethany House Publishers.2013.

SUMMARY:
circumstanceArabella Becket has a habit of finding herself in sticky situations. Only, this time she has found herself in a dangerous situation that requires a little extra help. A family friend, Theodore Wilder, must repeatedly rescue her much to his great annoyance. Arabella and Theodore must work together to resolve this most peculiar circumstance.

A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Arabella Becket is a strong, independent character that the reader will enjoy accompanying through the novel’s excitement. Equally as strong of a character, Theodore Wilder’s annoyance with Arabella Becket will provide ample opportunity for the reader to giggle. The novel is a delightful read that balances the humor with issues that are still visible today. The author’s degree in textiles becomes apparent throughout the novel with excellent descriptions of clothing providing the novel with an extra layer of depth. The novel is part of the “Ladies of Distinction Series”; although not the first book, readers may read the series out of order and equally enjoy all three books.

MY RATING: 4.5 (out of 5) pennies
