High As The Heavens: A Book Review

About The Book:

A British nurse in WWI German-occupied Brussels, Evelyn Marche spends her days at the hospital and her nights working at a cafĂ© . . . or so it seems. Eve's most carefully guarded secret is that she also spends her nights carrying out dangerous missions as a spy for a Belgian resistance group.

When a plane crashes as she's en route to a rendezvous, Eve is the first to reach the downed plane and is shocked to recognize the badly injured pilot as British RFC Captain Simon Forrester. She risks her life to conceal him from the Germans, but as the secrets between them grow and the danger mounts, can they still hope to make it out of Belgium alive?

My Review:

Anytime a book is set in World War 1 or 2, that immediately grabs my attention. Through in a little mystery, well rounded characters and a plot that captures my attention so much I was up late in the night reading and you have a fantastic book on your hands. This is one that I would love to see made into a movie. It has a ton of spy attention too for those that like that plot addition. It is very obvious that a lot of effort and research was done to make this book as historically accurate as possible and with each page read, I visualized myself right in the action. Such a great read from one of my favorite authors of the last decade! I look forward to reading more of this author in the future. 

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up.
