  • what a fun book…

    I had previously read and really enjoyed the first book in this short two-book series, so I was happy to receive an advance reading copy of the second book from the publisher to review. First off, this was just a straight-out fun read. The characters are engaging and I liked watching Poppy in her new career with the London Crown Film Unit. I also enjoyed Poppy’s budding relationship with Griff, and I hope author Tessa Arlen writes more books in the series so we can see that continue to develop. The story just pulled me along, and I ended up reading this late into the night – and yawning at work the next day! I’d give the book four and a half stars just for how fun it was. On a slightly more serious note, I have some familiarity with England during the Blitz/WWII due to a high-school history report I had to do many many years ago. The background of Poppy Redfern and the Fatal Flyers dovetails quite nicely into what I already knew, which is always nice for a historical mystery. But it also taught me quite a bit about the female pilots, the Air Transport Auxiliary corps, who ferried planes around during the war, so that the male pilots could go off and fight. But the teaching was subtle and fun, so it didn’t feel like writing my report (!), and didn’t make the book slow or boring – far from it. And although there’s a bit of skullduggery going on (there sort of has to be, for this to be a murder mystery!), the sense of the women as a team, aware that they were capable of doing more than just ferrying planes, but still doing their part for the war effort, was one of the highlights of the book for me. And that tipped it over into five stars, which is sort of a rare rating for me. Finally, my thanks to Berkley/Penguin and Edelweiss for the review copy!

    Thanks for your feedback!
