The story follows the developing romance of Vivian Powell and Sergeant Eugene Banks, who meet at a dance for soldiers during World War II. It is Vivian's first time as a "hostess," one of numerous young women who volunteered to attend weekly dances for the soldiers, most coming in from Fort Knox. From the first time their eyes met across the dance floor, there was an instant connection that this reader felt along with them. Through the beginnings of a lovely romance, misunderstandings, and eventual resolution of the issues that caused the misunderstandings, I found myself pulled deeper into their story, wanting it all to just work out for our hero and heroine.
I also enjoyed the historical facts, especially those surrounding Fort Knox. I'm a World War II "buff," and that coupled with being a native Louisvillian only helped to increase my enjoyment of "Her Blue-Eyed Sergeant."
If you've read the author's previous series, you'll not only recognize Sergeant Banks as a "lesser-known" character from the first, "Once in a While," but you'll truly relish the parts of the story that include the main characters from the Cherished Memories series, Vic and Louise.
This wonderful story also included some fun and incredibly clever, surprising twists and truly added another dimension to the adventures of Vivian and Eugene.
I highly recommend "Her Blue-Eyed Sergeant" and am anxiously awaiting the next installment in this lovely new series by Linda Ellen. This is not just a "book," but a beautiful, fun, romantic adventure that easily absorbed this reader into its depths.
I give it 10 STARS!
Historical novels are not usually my genre… but I can’t say enough about this wonderful series!
Gene and Vivian meet quite by chance–or do they? Do you believe in love at first sight? Well, this story might not be just that, but… oh, dear. I can’t say much more without giving away too much. I can tell you that the characters are colorful, interesting, and unforgettable. And the confusing mysteries will most likely be unexpected, too. Just read it and see…
if you enjoy exciting romance, you’ll love this series. Especially since they’re clean reads!
Hurry! Run and pick up a copy of Her Blue-Eyed Sergeant and read the adventures of Gene and Vivian. Then read the rest of the series, too.
I adored the World War Two setting, and was immediately drawn into Gene and Viv's story, and followed them through every up and down, and the twists and turns (and boy are there a few twists! You don't want to miss them!) This story is very unique and original, the first of its kind as far as my reader knowledge goes (though I can't name the reason without giving away an important twist 😉). I thoroughly enjoyed reading and living in this one, and truly look forward to reading book 2!
Set in the WWII era in Louisville, KY., I found I was immersed in the years I'd pictured when hearing my own family tell stories. That just made this book all the more enjoyable. I just loved imagining the USO girls and the dances, the soldiers at Fort Knox, and the little details like the Burma Shave ads.
I started out as a fan of Louise and Vic, from her previous novels, but now I am adding Vivian and Gene to the mix. She created a whole new group of characters that I've just fallen in love with and can't wait to find out how they are doing in her next books!
I have to say the romance between Vivian and Gene was striking and electric. My heart was just fluttering every time!
There was mystery and uncovered secrets, silly humor with new friends and old, and a surprise around every corner. You'd really be missing out if you pass over this great book! I was lucky to have gotten to read it ahead of time, and can't wait to get to share it with my friends and family!
