Title: In Perfect Time
Author: Sarah Sundin
Series: Wings of the Nightingale #3
~ MY REVIEW ~
No one can write World War II tales quite like Sarah Sundin. In Perfect Time is the third book in the series Wings of the Nightingale, and we dive back into the world of flight nurses, plane crashes, and unexpected true love.
Kay's story finally comes to life. Being the group beauty, she accustomed to men flocking behind her, and having a new date for each day of the week. With her looks, she seeks to control men, and get back at her father for the deep wounds he caused her. Meanwhile, Cooper is a fun-loving guy who plays practical jokes and flies planes, some of which Kay is a nurse on. But beneath his smiling exterior, he also holds deep scars, and has a mysterious aversion to women.
In Perfect Time was an interesting, historically-rich tale. It was fascinating to look beneath common exteriors, and into what was going on in a seemingly “figured-out” person's life. I enjoyed the surprising twist Sarah Sundin put at the near end also. Watching everything come to a lovely conclusion for all the dear characters was wonderful! *smiles* The faith matters were deep, and poignant, and that was very appreciated as well! The message was really good. I loved some of the analogies Cooper used when speaking of God!
A down for me of the story, was the seemingly repetitive nature of Cooper and Kay's relationship. It got a little tiring after awhile, and I wished for a different tension/conflict. It ended so sweetly, that it was just about made up for. But throughout the book, it just seemed to make it drag. Also, the physical side of some relationships seemed to come too quickly ... that's just my opinion with that anyway.
Still a great tale though. I just love reading about World War II through this author's writings! The flight nurses are fascinating. The different army routines intriguing. Sarah Sundin definitely puts plenty of spice and intrigue into her stories. I am looking forward to reading her upcoming series!
I received a free copy of In Perfect Time from Revell Publishers in exchange for my honest review.
