In Perfect Time

By K. L. Bridgewater

As a lover of suspense and mystery novels, I usually keep to contemporary mysteries, unless you include Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic Sherlock Holmes, but recently, I downloaded a free book to my Kindle. A Distant Melody by Sarah Sundin. Sundin specializes in World War II fiction, which usually I have no interest in reading. Deciding to give her a chance, I read the book and enjoyed it immensely.

Product DetailsI jumped at the chance when Revell offered a complimentary copy of In Perfect Time by Sarah Sundin. The story is the third book in a trilogy featuring Army Air Flight nurses featuring Lt. Kay Jobson. According to the blurbs of the offer two books preceding this tale, Kay Jobson is featured in the other two books.

I have found a new author to enjoy and look forward to all her books. I only own three of the six books she has published, and I plan to keep a hunt out for the other three.

Sundin’s characters are realistic with difficulties and a past, which haunts them. I enjoy how Sundin develops and causes a change in her characters internally as the story develops. The relationship between Kay and Roger Cooper, a C-47 pilot, matches real life because Sundin takes the time to develop their relationship. They argue. They love. They hate each other.

Some of my favorite parts are the amount of research Sundin has woven perfectly together in the story. The location and the history fit well with the action occurring on the page that the reader forgets their reading a story that occurred seventy years ago.  

The plot is filled with heart pounding action passed enemy lines to a hunt by Nazi’s soldiers to a near-rape in the story. The story has a happy ending, which causes the audience to sigh in relief from all the rapid pace of the plot.

Have you tried any of the books by Sarah Sundin? If so, do you usually pick up historical romances? What caused you to pick up Sarah Sundin’s book?  If not, I hope this review has given you some things to ponder about the greatest of Sundin’s writing and research. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Revell Publishing in exchange for my honest opinion, which are completely my own.
