Felicity’s War by Jean Fullerton

 Ad – review. I was sent a copy of this book for review purposes and all thoughts are my own.

Today I am involved in the book tour for Felicity’s War by Jean Fullerton. Born and bred in East London Jean was a District Nurse by trade working throughout East London. She had published twenty-three sagas, including the popular WW2 RATION BOOK, which like all her books is set in East London. Jean has also written her autobiography A Child of the East End, about growing up in post-war Stepney and Wapping. She is currently working on first book of her new four book WW2 series.

About the book 

1941. Whilst London is battered by air raids, Felicity ‘Fliss’ Carmichael has troubles of her own. Reeling from her fiancé’s betrayal, she flees to her family home at St. Winifred’s Rectory. Though heartbroken, Fliss finds purpose again as a journalist. On assignment, she crosses paths with Detective Inspector Timothy Wallace, who shares her passion for truth and justice - though not necessarily her political beliefs. Despite their differences, an instant spark ignites between them. In a city under siege, Fliss and Tim forge an unlikely bond. But can their blossoming romance endure the perils ahead?

Felicity’s War is part of a series and book number 3 although, I didn't realise this until after finishing this story. It worked well as a standalone novel and tells the story of Felicity "Fliss". The story shares Fliss going through heartbreak of finding her fiancé cheating so she flees to her childhood home and is reunited with her sister Prue. There she finds purpose again with a job as a journalist and finds herself regularly crossing paths with DI Timothy Wallace. Despite their differences there is a spark between the two. I loved the romance, drama and crime aspects within the story. When it comes to historical fiction I often read one's around the same sort of time period of the war. It was great to read about the black market racketeering and the story also lightly touches on politics.
