    Historical Holiday Romance

    A Midnight Feast by Genevieve Turner and Emma Barry Fly Me to the Moon #6.5 Love…LOVE…L*O*V*E this series! This may be historical romance but it is my history or at least times I remember so very well. Each book brings back memories and each book has issues to explore and truths to share. In this holiday novella we learn more about Margie and Mitch Dunsford. The two met in 1945, had a whirlwind romance, married and began the grind and glory of being in the US Air Force. Over the years Margie does her part to make Mitch a success while working her way to the top of the wives group. In 1965, after twenty years of marriage, their relationship seems to have lost its luster even though both seem to have reached the pinnacle of Air Force life with Mitch an astronaut and Margie featured in magazines with other astronaut wives and families. With a long Thanksgiving weekend on their own they have the opportunity to explore why and where things may have gone wrong and determine whether or not it is worth trying to make their relationship better. With flashbacks to the past the reader is given insights into why the two are not so close and why they may or may not want to be close again. There are truths that hit close to home for me in this book. I have been married nearly twice as long as Margie and Mitch and sometimes have wondered in ways these two do in the book. Making a marriage work is not always easy and often not what one expects when embarking on the journey on one’s wedding day…and just having it “work” may not be enough… Anyway…I loved the story and look forward to reading more in this series as soon as it is finished. I also plan to revisit some of the books already out because this book has made me want to remember again how much I enjoyed reading the previous books the first time around. Thank you to the authors for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars

    A lovely second chance novella

    Midnight Feast is a lovely second chance romance novella for a couple who've been together for years but have lost the spark that made them fall in love in the first place. Margie and Mitch Dunsford had a whirlwind romance, but the glitter wore off soon enough with the birth of six children, and Mitch's demanding career as a pilot and a key member of the early American space program. Margie did everything she could to support Mitch's career, and became a leader among the astronauts' wives. Now they are virtual strangers, and when a planned Thanksgiving party with a bunch of their friends turns into dinner for two, they have to face facts - if they don't do something to fix what's wrong between them, their marriage won't survive. Will they have the courage to face their fears, take responsibility for their own actions, and try to recapture what brought them together in the first place? It's no secret that I love this modern historical series with its wholly believable look back at the 1950s and 1960s race to space. Clearly well researched, every book looks at a different aspect of the complicated space program. This one gives equal time to the ones left behind - the families of the astronauts who have to deal with the ever present reality that their spouses, brothers, fathers are involved in a dangerous and life threatening career. It doesn't sugarcoat the losses, or the stress of waiting to hear good or bad news. For Margie, the initial glow of love faded with the day to day drudgery of being a single mom while Mitch was away more days than he was at home. It made her into the bad cop to his good cop, with him being the celebrated and loved father when he'd return home to the kids while she had to deal with real life at home. And the rumors of infidelity at parties away from home haven't helped. The story weaves between the early days of their courtship and marriage in the mid 1940s during World War II and the present day, showing just where they lost their way. Sex was never their problem at the start, and being alone for the first time in years gives them the excuse to forget the problems between them and indulge in what makes them both feel good. It doesn't fix things but it opens the door to communication and that's the first step to fixing their relationship. The loss of one of Mitch's co-workers in a fiery accident several years earlier had a profound effect on them both that they've never talked about before, and with the doors open they can finally get everything out in the open. The resulting story is sometimes bittersweet, but ultimately hopeful and with a believable happy ending.
