Weekends have been beach days for me, that’s why I’m posting later in the night. The good thing about beach days is that I can read without any worries. And this book was one of those that I read during my relaxing days at the beach.
“Wild Blue Yonder“, written by M W Arnold, is a Historical novel, in the saga subgenre, the Second Book in The Air Transport Auxiliary Mystery Club series, published on 26th July 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.
Air Transport Auxiliary pilot Doris Winter is accused of stealing a valuable item from a famous Hollywood movie star, now a captain in the US Army Air Corps, after a dance at the air base in England where he’s stationed. Gathering her close friends together, she’s determined to clear her name.
Ruth’s POW son suffers a life-changing injury just as her own cottage takes damage in an air raid and Penny’s estranged little sister unexpectedly turns up, having run away from school. Together with the ongoing thefts of items of clothing and surprise personal revelations, these all threaten to hamper their investigation.
In spite of the worsening war situation, they must band together to rise above their troubles and prove love and friendship is worth fighting for.

Mick is a hopeless romantic who was born in England and spent fifteen years roaming around the world in the pay of HM Queen Elizabeth II in the Royal Air Force before putting down roots and realizing how much he missed the travel.

He’s the proud keeper of two cats bent on world domination, is mad on the music of the Beach Boys, and enjoys the theatre and humoring his Manchester United-supporting wife. Finally, and most importantly, Mick is a full member of the Romantic Novelists Association. Wild Blue Yonder is the second novel in his Broken Wings series and he is very proud to be a part of the Vintage Rose Garden at The Wild Rose Press.

I had the chance of reading the previous book last year, so I was very excited to continue the journey with these characters in this fascinating setting. First of all, I suggest you read book one to get a fuller experience of this series and to understand better the characters’ life.
Yes, we still are following the lovely ladies of the ATA (Air Transport Auxiliary). We learn how their lives are at the moment and what adventures and obstacles will appear in their path.
I won’t give any spoilers, but I can say that there is drama and mystery, and a Hollywood connection. And of course we still have the friendship and the WWII setting that gives an atmosphere of going back in time.
Overall, it was a fantastic sequel and I’m still fascinated with the entire ATA element of the story. Plus, I loved going back to this story and feeling as if I was checking up on my old time friends.
