Felicity's War: The Stepney Girls, Book 3 by Jean Fullerton (Corvus, 2024)


Felicity’s War

1941. Whilst London is battered by air raids, Felicity ‘Fliss’ Carmichael has troubles of her own. Reeling from her fiancĂ©’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 a heartwarming historical drama. I immediately liked Felicity as the main character. She is outspoken and modern thinking with a career in journalism. She takes no nonsense from anyone, especially her fiancé and I cheered for her every time she stood up for herself.

Having not read any of the previous books in the series I enjoyed this as a standalone. The story moves quickly. I enjoyed the intrigue with Felicity and DI Wallace investigating crime and black market racketeering. The romance was also a treat. It was fun watching the pair's interactions evolve from sniping at each other to caring and developing feelings.

The author writes about the period so well that I could imagine myself there trying to grapple with food rationing and having to make do. I could also picture ordinary people trying to live a normal life in the extraordinary time of air raids and blackouts. 

I flew through this book within two days. It was difficult to put down and left me with the desire to read the previous two books in the series.
