From the publisher:
The Second World War has stolen Rosalie’s fiancĂ© from her. But rather than wallow, Rosalie throws herself into her work at the Boeing plant in Victory Heights, shooting rivets into the B-17 bombers that will destroy the enemy. A local reporter dubs her “Seattle's Own Rosie the Riveter,” and her story lends inspiration to women across the country. While Rosalie’s strong arms can bear the weight of this new responsibility, her heart cannot handle the intense feelings that begin to surface for Kenny, the handsome reporter. Fear of a second heartbreak is a powerful opponent—but will it claim victory over love?

My Review:
Summerside Press publishes some great faith-based romances and Tricia Goyer and Ocieanna Fleiss are two terrific authors I've been introduced to through Summeride's Love Finds You collection. Their second collaboration, Love Finds You in Victory Heights, Washington, is a great addition to any Christian romance lovers library. Not only is the cover beautiful but the story as well.

Personally, I've always loved those iconic WWII posters featuring Rosie the Riveter and I loved that the authors made Rosalie, the heroine of this story, the "Rosie" of Seattle. She was a hard workin,' no nonsense, kinda gal if a bit on the shy side. And that Kenny, *sigh* what a dreamboat! Without giving too much away I'll just say he makes the ending of this story.

While this book didn't include a whole lot of drama or anything unpredictable between the characters, I still really enjoyed it. I especially loved that the dialogue between characters was authentic to the 1940s. You don't hear "doll" and "sweets" used much these days! Tricia and Ocieanna did a good job with this one. It will be interesting to see what they come up with next!
