Parachute Girls Reviews
This is a sweet story, I'm assuming it's true, but not sure. It's different in that it goes back and forth between the present and the past. Loved all of the detail about the blitz in England and what it was like to live through it, those poor people! Kay is a wonderful girl and Ray, hunky G.I. I'd recommend this story to anyone who loves a good, well-written, well-researched historical romance. No flinches. :)
I began this book as an audio book,and the reader was Amy Hedley. I really enjoyed the story line, but the narrator was not very good. I made it about 3/4 of the way through when I finally decided I would look for an e-book. I finished this as an e-book just so I wouldn't have to listen to the lack luster narration any longer. I would give the story line 4 stars and I definitely recommend reading this versus listening to it. As an audio book, I'd only give it 1 1/2 stars.
This story is not written very well. Some subjects mentioned but authors thought or idea not completed. I kept wondering why it was even mentioned. Extremely disjointed. Keep in mind that this book has very little to do with the whole premise of parachute makers during the war. Best thing about the book - the beautiful cover.
It was a good story, but just average writing.
Nice romanceThis was a fun read. There were some historical errors but it was a cozy nights read. I liked the way the story takes place in ww2 and current times.
Easy fun read about WWII and the British mixing with American GIs!
