In Perfect Time by Sarah Sundin ~ An Historical Romance Review

Wings of the Nightengale, Book 3
Sarah Sundin
Historical Romance

Back of the book:


Bold, sophisticated, and coy, Army Air Force flight nurse Lt. Kay Jobson collects hearts wherever she flies, leaving men pining in airfields all across Europe. So how can ruggedly handsome C-47 pilot Lt. Roger Cooper be all but immune to her considerable charms? In fact, he seems to do everything he can to avoid her.

Still, as they cross the skies between Italy and southern France, evacuating the wounded and delivering paratroopers and supplies, every beat of their hearts draws them closer. Can they overcome the fears and misunderstandings of the past in order to take hold of the future?

Sarah Sundin seamlessly weaves together emotion, action, and sweet romance into a tale that transcends time and calls us to believe in the power of love.


My thoughts:

In the third installment of the Wings of the Nightengale series Sarah Sundin has once again brought a fabulous World War II story to life. I enjoyed the first two books in the series, but I think that this one is my favorite. In Perfect Time is the story of Lt. Kay Jobson and Lt. Roger Cooper. If you've read the previous books in the series you are already acquainted with these two.

Kay is a flight nurse that has a fast reputation. Roger is a pilot and seems to go out of his way to avoid the lovely and vivacious Kay. The tension between the two just adds to the delicious build up of the blossoming romance. Roger has big regrets in his life, but he has found Jesus and is clinging to that saving faith with everything he has. He originally sees Kay as a stumbling block to be avoided at all costs. In truth Kay herself needs to meet Jesus on a personal level. When she does, just grab the Kleenex box because you'll need it.

Another lovely thing about this book is that we get to catch up with some wonderful people from the former books. If you've read the first two books you'll be delighted to find out what Tom, Mellie, Hutch, and Georgie have been up to. It's always bittersweet to come to the ending of a series but I have not only been entertained by these books but I've also come away from them feeling like I learned just a bit more about this time in history. Sarah does a great job of mixing in facts about the events without boring you to tears. 

If you enjoy historical fiction with a twist of romance I think you'll enjoy this series and particularly this book. My recommendation would be to indulge yourself by reading the series in order, With Every Letter, On Distant Shores, and finally In Perfect Time. Each of the books in the series were designed to be either read as a stand alone or in the series . . . I say go for the series!
