Review: In Perfect Time by Sarah Sundin

About the book:
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.

My thoughts:

In Perfect Time was an amazing read and the perfect way to end this fantastic series! The first two books left me so eager for Kay's story and it surpassed my expectations! 

Both Kay's and Roger's pasts were tragic and definitely made me feel for them. I loved seeing their transformed lives and that the Gospel message was so prevalent to the story, but not in a pushy way --it flowed naturally.

There are so many other things I loved -- like the romance and how it wasn't instantaneous -- but suffice it to say, I absolutely loved this book! It's my favorite of the series and I can't think of anything I didn't like about it!

Sarah Sundin definitely knows how to write great WWII novels and I highly recommend this series. I am looking forward to reading her next book!

  4. Hi Melanie! Thank you for sharing about the giveaway through Goodreads. While I haven't read the first two books of this series, I do plan to read the series. Thus far, I have read A Distant Melody and am halfway through A Memory Between Us. I did not read your review as I didn't want to read any spoilers for this first two books of the series. All the best, Staci

  5. Love the review, Melanie! I'm a huge fan of Sarah's, and your thoughts on the book are leaving me even more eager than I already was to read In Perfect Time!

  6. Nice review. I, too, enjoy reading about WWII as my mother had some very tragic events during that time while living in Germany.

  7. I'm really looking forward reading this series. I have heard great things about it. The covers are really beautiful too.

  8. I'm looking forward to starting this series, especially after reading excellent reviews like this!

  9. The book sounds amazing! I'm looking forward to reading this series and book. Great review!

  10. I so enjoy Sarah's historical detail. I love history but enjoy learning it in a fictional setting. I really enjoyed hearing Sarah's interview for In Perfect Time when she visited CBD recently. Thanks for this giveaway and for your helpful review. ~Joyce

  11. Thank you for this insightful review. I agree that it is often better to present God's Word in a manner that doesn't appear overwhelming.

  12. You did a very good job on your review Melanie. Makes me want them all. I am very interested in the books of WW ll. You see, my brother, other family members, and many friends served in that war. Lost two of the family friends. I was 10 at that time and I remember how everyone tried to help in whatever they could. My dad moved to the city to work in the shipyard. I hope to win this book. Maxie > mac262(at)me(dot)com <

  15. Thorough review, Melanie! Thank you for introducing us to Sarah's latest book.

  16. I've been waiting for Kay's story since book 1. The fact that you say this one is the best of the series says a lot about this story! I loved book 1 so much and I wonder if this book will be even better!

  17. Thanks for the review and letting us know what the book's about.
