In Perfect Time by Sarah Sundin

Two hearts are about to learn the rhythm of love 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.

Here's my review of this wonderful book:

First, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Sarah Sundin and her publisher for sending me a copy of "In Perfect Time" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.

"In Perfect Time” by Sarah Sundin is the third installment in her Wings of the Nightingale series, and I believe it to be her best novel so far! If you’ve read the first two books, you’ve been introduced to Lt. Kay Jobson, flight nurse, fiery redhead and incorrigible flirt! She dates for fun – lots of men at once – no time or desire for anything serious. As her character is featured in this book, we learn why she lives this way. Getting to know her character has been heartbreaking and joyful at the same time.

You may also remember C-47 pilot Roger Cooper. He’s steered clear of Kay, the idea firmly planted in him that dating should be to determine suitability for marriage. Coop has easily ignored Kay’s advances in the past, but now that she’s become a Christian and it looks like she’s changed her “bad girl” ways, he finds it even more difficult to be around her!

You’ll also be reunited with old friends Tom, Mellie, Hutch and Georgie. But this novel reads perfectly well as a standalone story. Still, I recommend reading the others – they’re all sweet, clean romances with a historic authenticity.

I love how the author showcases the power of prayer in this novel. Her illustrations inspired me because I’ve been there before. It also makes me sad that we so easily forget the wonderful things the Lord has done for us – what He’s freed us from. This book is a great reminder that no one is beyond God’s redemption!
