For the second bonus book, I read Flame of Resistance by Tracy Groot. This was another free find courtesy of the Nook group over on Facebook, which posts free e-book links on Fridays. I gave it four out of five stars, so it was all right. It probably is closer to a 3.5, but GoodReads don’t play dat.
Set during the second World War, the story focuses on a downed American pilot and a French prostitute in occupied France, and the people who are quietly, secretly fighting the Nazis. It was an entertaining read, though dark in some places (which is appropriate, given the subject matter), and I didn’t mind following the characters through the maze of desperation, deception, and uncertainty. Perhaps the romantic element was obvious, but that wasn’t so bad. Some of the scenes were a bit hard to read, as torture can be.
