Love Finds You in Victory Heights, Washington

It's my birthday today, so I'm going to jump right into the review so I can enjoy the day!

Love Finds You in Victory Heights, Washington by Tricia Goyer and Ocieanna Fleiss is a poignant WWII romance. Rosalie Madison's fiance was killed in the war, so she throws herself into helping build the fast B-17 planes to help dull the pain and to hide her secret that she wasn't truly in love with the young man. When Kenny Davenport bumps into her, literally, she is incensed at the newspaper writer's seeming rudeness. Her anger quickly turns to embarrassment when the two are labeled "lovebirds" by the newspaper. Dancing with him that night softens her heart, but when he asks her for an interview, she turns on him again, making the poor man's head spin. But he just can't get her out of his head, especially when his editor assigns him to write an article about the young woman. Both Kenny and Rosalie have past heartbreaks that make them misinterpret and misunderstand each other, but their chemistry is something that just cannot be denied. The authors do an amazing job of bringing WWII Seattle to life with lots of slang, as well as the problems the characters face in day-to-day life. From prejudice on the job, to worry over every newspaper article to the nightclubs where everyone dances as if there's no tomorrow, the reader is pulled into this world and just may never want to leave.
