“In the Mood” Review

Hello Everyone!

Life as been crazy, I’m going back to school to get my master in Intercultural Mediation and Social Intervention, which means I won’t have a lot of time to get reviews done. That is, until I get things back on track. But, one thing is for sure, reading as helped me keeping my sanity.

One of the books I read while getting things ready was the one I’m reviewing right now.

In The Mood“, written by M. W. Arnold, is a Historical Saga, the Fourth Book in Broken Wings series, published on 26th September 2022.

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.


During a hectic couple of weeks in February 1944, the girls of the Air Transport Auxiliary Mystery Club must face devastating personal loss amongst their number. A member of an illegal faction blackmails Betty, whilst a mystery at Mary’s ancestral home threatens to cause more trouble than anyone thought possible. In the midst of what should be the happiest of times, the portents seem to be catching up and little is what it seems to be. Can the girls find the strength to battle forces both internal and external, yet still maintain their dignity and friendship?

My Review

When I first read a book by M.W. Arnold, I was captivated by the story and the characters he brought to us. This series also gave me the same feeling as that first book.

“In The Mood” is the forth book in the Broken Wings series, so if you haven’t read the previous books, you really should, because we go back to following the ladies at the Air Transport Auxiliary, during WWII.

War is still going, and some mysteries continue as we go through the motions of the drama and romance, and above all, as we continue the friendship with the characters. These women just captured my heart and mind from the first time they were introduced, and I was really invested in this book to see what was going to happen. Ending up in a rollercoaster of events.

There is still a strong connection to the previous elements of the other three books, with the planes and war and personal events, it just keep building up. Lots of battles to fight and a friendship continuing to give them strength and comfort. To give me comfort in a way, to keep going with my day and the busy schedule.

Overall, I was not disappointed and it was yet another solid book by M.W. Arnold that reminded me of why I like his writing and this genre.
