I’m excited to start off October with a fun blog tour. Let’s get to my review of In the Mood.
During a hectic couple of weeks in February 1944, the girls of the Air Transport Auxiliary Mystery Club must face devastating personal loss amongst their number. A member of an illegal faction blackmails Betty, whilst a mystery at Mary’s ancestral home threatens to cause more trouble than anyone thought possible. In the midst of what should be the happiest of times, the portents seem to be catching up and little is what it seems to be. Can the girls find the strength to battle forces both internal and external, yet still maintain their dignity and friendship?
My Thoughts on In the Mood
For some reason, I’m finding myself drawn to historical fiction that features an aeronautical aspect. And In the Mood didn’t disappoint. I will say I didn’t really realize this was the fourth book in a series, so I was a bit lost at first. But once I got further in everything came together. Definitely start with book one though.
Once the story got started it took off. There was action on every page. It really hooked me. The mystery was engaging and kept me guessing. The writing was concise, and I loved the humor throughout the story. And the characters were wonderfully developed. Each character had a distinct voice and personality. In the Mood really has everything that I ask for in a story.
