Army Girls: Behind The Guns by Fenella J. Miller BLOG TOUR

                                                                              September 1942

Having done her duty as an ATS girl, Lance Corporal Ruth Cox is moving on to new challenges and has signed up to work as a gunner girl, helping to keep the skies clear of enemy planes and safe for our brave boys in blue.

But on the way to her new barracks, Ruth meets handsome Sargeant Sam Johnson. Ruth isn’t looking for romance, and she knows she has a dangerous job ahead, but there is a connection between her and Sam that she can’t deny.

Sam has never met anyone quite like Ruth before and he hopes their relationship will continue to grow, but with the war still raging, the time they have together is fleeting. It isn’t long before they are sent to different parts of the country to do their duty and risk their lives.

Will they find their way back to each other, or will war destroy their hope of happiness?

Behind the Guns is the third book in the Army Girls series and can be read as a standalone.
This instalment centres around Ruth and her career choice as a gunner. She meets Sam en route to her new training grounds and sparks fly immediately. Their meeting is fraught with drama which brings them closer together quite quickly. With a war going on they waste no time in declaring their feelings and desire to get to know one another better. The time-period is a good showcase for an old-fashioned romance where love blooms with the anticipation of and the exchange of letters and notes. With Sam and Ruth you really get a sense of the longing they felt and the wish to be stationed near each other so that they would have opportunities to meet. There is never a dull moment when the pair are together as they attract trouble and drama at every turn. I couldn't wait to see how things would turn out for them especially after Sam's family troubles come to light. I was surprised at the abrupt ending as I would have loved to see more of this family drama and learn how Sam and Ruth fared with their change in circumstances. But I loved every minute of this warm and dramatic story.
