    A Marvellous Third Book in Series!

    I've loved this series so far, and this is another worthy addition. The war is moving on, and with it the role of women. Now in the ATA, Ellie is busy ferrying planes around from one base to another; she loves her job and is glad to be kept busy after the deaths of both her brother and her fiancee. Her friendship with Jack is ongoing and he would like it to be much, much more but she is still grieving for Greg. It's hard to further any kind of relationship when their paths cross so rarely . . . This third book continues on seamlessly from the first two; it's a wonderful series and I love that it focuses on a different aspect of the war. There is no doubt that the women of the ATA were both brave and fearless, and in today's world of equality it's good to remember how far the 'fairer sex' have come! This author always scripts an easily readable novel with full on information on the war as well as excellent characterisation throughout. I was a bit surprised when it ended a little abruptly though! It's a marvellous tale, and one I really enjoyed. As the end of the war is still some way off, I can look forward to the next book and I can't wait. I'm delighted to give this one four and a half stars!

    Third book in series!

    A Wedding for the Spitfire Girl by Fenella J. Miller is the third novel in The Spitfire Girl series. We journey back to 1942 where Ellie Simpson is working for the ATA ferrying planes and so is her beau, Jack Reynolds. Ellie loves flying a spitfire, but she is needed to ferry bombers, so she takes the necessary classes which also earn her a promotion. Just because Ellie is flying over England does not mean the skies are safe. There are untold dangers for pilots. Ellie and Jack are so busy working, they get to see little of each other. Jack is ready to commit, but he knows Ellie has not gotten over the loss of Greg Dunlop. Ellie is not sure she can open her heart to Jack despite her fondness for him. What will it take for this Spitfire Girl to risk her heart once again? A Wedding for the Spitfire Girl is gripping historical novel. I found it to be well-written and it moved along steadily. We get to see what it was like for a woman working in the ATA during World War II. I could tell the author did extensive research for this book from the historical details included. A Wedding for the Spitfire Girl has developed characters that are realistic and suit the time period. I love that Ellie is a modern, spirited and intelligent woman. I feel that Jack is the perfect man for Ellie as they complement each other. I have a feeling, though, that there will be a few bumps along the way considering Ellie’s stubbornness and Jack’s male pride. I like the intrigue that was added to the story. Jack’s wayward uncle, Joe Cross may be dead, but his misdeeds continue to haunt Jack. It seems that Joe may have some information hidden that would help the government. The government wants it and so do the bad guys who will do what it takes to get results. Ellie would like to reconcile with her mother and brother, but she wishes to avoid Sir Reginald, her tyrant of a grandfather. It was sweet how the female pilots supported each other and became close friends. I was surprised at how the story ended a little abruptly and there is mild foul language throughout the book. A Wedding for the Spitfire Girl cannot be read as a standalone. You do need to read The Spitfire Girl series in order as each book builds upon the previous one. A Wedding for the Spitfire Girl is an engaging story with pilot peril, criminal contraventions, fussing families, a raging war and a real romance.

    A wedding for the spitfire girl

    This was fascinating. I was transported to the world of the heroine and her beau, her friends and the WW 2 British aviation environment. I had touched on the subject in another book I read about Canadian women pilots who flew new planes to England, but this was a complete dive into their world. I really got a clear view of the dangers facing them as well as their courage and bravery. To learn that they flew as often as 4 planes a day, some of which were damaged, was incredible. It was a great story about brave young women.
