The author’s whose book I’m reviewing today is one I know thanks to this blog tours.
“I’ll Be Home For Christmas“, written by M.W. Arnold, is a historical fiction novel, set in WWII, is the Third Book in The Air Transport Auxiliary Mystery Club Series – Broken Wings Series, published in October 2021.
I want to thank Rachel, at Rachel’s Random Resources, and M W Arnold for the eCopy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
A mysterious key left by her murdered sister, leads Air Transport Auxiliary pilot Betty Palmer on a journey of discovery and danger. Given up to an orphanage upon birth, the parents she’s long thought had no part in her life force themselves back in, purely out of greed and self-preservation.
Penny’s life is unexpectedly turned upside down by a potentially life-changing situation, which causes her wounded husband to question their marriage. No-one seems safe in this year of turmoil in the middle years of the war, as some relationships face breaking point whilst others become stronger.
Kidnap, crashes and dogfights, the girls of the Air Transport Auxiliary Mystery have never faced such dangers. To survive may not be enough as they must find the strength to rise above the most trying times yet of their lives.

Quick note: For those that don’t know this series I recommend you start with “A Wing and a Prayer”, as this book is the third book in the series.
As we follow our amazing friends, the women of the Air Transport Auxiliary Mystery Club, life continue after the previous book. I love reading historical novels set during any of the WW in this saga subgenre, because of the sense of community. In this story, there is that, plus the context of the plot, and the characters background.
There is still mystery and action, and despite knowing the characters and their life, I still was surprised. They felt like family members that I got to spent vacation with. Not a tropical setting, but the historical aspects that the author used took me to another place and time, which was just as good for me.
Overall, it was amazing to go back to this series and see where the story would go next. The danger, the mystery, the resilience and the action that got things going and got me curious and focus at each page.
