Saving the Rifleman (War Girls) by Julie Rowe Review

Title: Saving the Rifleman
Series: War Girls
Author: Julie Rowe
Genre: Military Romance
Pages: 122
Price: $2.51
Thoughts: Highly recommended.

Book Synopsis:

German-occupied Brussels, Belgium
Great War, 1914

British Red Cross nurse Maria Hunt lives in daily fear that the Germans will uncover her secret: she helps wounded British soldiers escape.

Lieutenant John Bennet is wounded and running out of options. Trapped behind enemy lines while collecting intelligence, he needs to get out of Belgium if he's going to escape with the information and his life.

Maria is devoted to her patients and her cause, but something else compels her to risk her life for this soldier. While a man of Lieutenant Bennet's station would barely speak to her in other circumstances, something in his kind eyes inspires a passion deep within her.

As his injuries worsen, can Maria find the courage to guide him through the war-torn countryside? And should they make it back to England, will their burgeoning desire survive the ravages of war?


I was quickly pulled into this book. Julie Rowe writes in such a way that you can't help but be transported to another time and place. As someone whose not big into war stories, I was impressed with this book. I found it quite enjoyable. The book was written in such a way that my heart picked up at the right moments and I couldn't wait to read what happened next. I highly recommend it.
