Today I am reviewing Her Blue-Eyed Sergeant, the 1st story in the Soldiers of Swing series by Linda Ellen.
Here is a brief synopsis:
He has his life all planned out – until one night at a dance at the USO in town, he meets her…
A secret blurted out in a moment of anger had turned Staff Sergeant Eugene Banks’ life upside down, but he moved on and made a good life for himself.
At the moment, he’s concentrating on solving a mystery he had stumbled onto at his job over the motor pool at Fort Knox.
Vivian Powell is contented with her life; she has family, friends, and a good job as a bank teller. Although she was nursing a broken heart, she has since moved forward and isn’t looking for love. At the urging of a friend, she decides to join the war effort by becoming a junior hostess at the local USO…
These two people meet one fateful night at a dance, and their lives are everlastingly changed. What follows is a beautiful courtship, while dodging the fact that she signed an agreement to be available every Saturday night to dance with dozens of soldiers, and in spite of two confusing mysteries that refuse to be solved.
Beautiful, that is, until Vivian catches Gene doing the very thing that he swore he would never do, and it nearly rips their romance in two!
If you love stories about WWII and the “Greatest Generation” that read like you’re watching a classic movie, with handsome soldiers and beautiful girls-next-door, then Her Blue-Eyed Sergeant is for you!
I LOVE THIS SERIES!!!
I give it 10 STARS!
Historical novels are not usually my genre… but I can’t say enough about this wonderful series!
Gene and Vivian meet quite by chance–or do they? Do you believe in love at first sight? Well, this story might not be just that, but… oh, dear. I can’t say much more without giving away too much. I can tell you that the characters are colorful, interesting, and unforgettable. And the confusing mysteries will most likely be unexpected, too. Just read it and see…
if you enjoy exciting romance, you’ll love this series. Especially since they’re clean reads!
Hurry! Run and pick up a copy of Her Blue-Eyed Sergeant and read the adventures of Gene and Vivian. Then read the rest of the series, too.
God bless you!
