The Officer Girl in Blue by Fenella J. Miller

 This captivated me from the first page! Fenella J. Miller writes so engagingly that you can imagine that you are friends with the main characters, and living through the war with them.

The story concerns Charlotte, a young WAAF officer, and Dan, a disabled detective. Charlotte is very attracted to Dan, but her relationship with him puts her into great danger, because of his attempts to get rid of corrupt and murderous police officers. He is also bad-tempered, because of suffering severe pain. Although she tries to be understanding, he sometimes goes too far. He realises this, however, and he is a likeable hero, as well as handsome and rich! 

Charlotte is a loveable character, although a bit too good to be true at times. She is independent, conscientious, practical and extremely moral, but not prudish. I would love to read a sequel about her!

Miller did her research thoroughly, and she captures the spirit of wartime Britain well, I think. I had relatives who fought in the war, and I am judging her description of the war from what they told me. The wartime slang also made the book authentic.

I received this free ebook from NetGalley in return for an honest review.
