    The year is 1918 and the Spanish flu epidemic is rampaging, killing both soldiers and civilians Battlefield nurse Bess Crawford and the rest of the nurses and doctors are swamped with patients But, then Bess discovers that among the dead bodies are the body of a murdered officer that used to serve in her father s former regiment However, she falls ill in the terrible flu herself before she can report itThe Bess Crawford series has quickly become a favorite of mine One of the reason is tha The year is 1918 and the Spanish flu epidemic is rampaging, killing both soldiers and civilians Battlefield nurse Bess Crawford and the rest of the nurses and doctors are swamped with patients But, then Bess discovers that among the dead bodies are the body of a murdered officer that used to serve in her father s former regiment However, she falls ill in the terrible flu herself before she can report itThe Bess Crawford series has quickly become a favorite of mine One of the reason is that I find Bess Crawford to be a competent young woman that happens to stumble over problems now and then Like this time where she must find out who killed an officer that she knew and respected But, she has also just been terribly ill, the body of the dead man is buried and the only other witness to it has hanged himself So, there isn t much to go on But, she won t give up, and luckily she has Simon Brandon and Captain Barclay, a Yankee with a poor knee to help her.This is the first book in this series that I just couldn t find myself really engrossed with It could be because of the absence of my favorite Aussie, but I think that most of the problem lies in the fact that the case just doesn t draw me in I don t say that the book was bad, it was just not memorable I definitely felt that when I started to write the review and for a moment was I at a loss to why the man, in the beginning, was killed The conclusion of the book was just not that thrilling.Thankfully, Bess makes this book worth the while, she is still a strong and interesting character despite the rather lackluster storyline There are those that favor a romantic relationship between her and Simon, but I just don t see it For me, he is an older brother Then again, this may because I have already in my mind a perfect candidate for her heart And, that s Sergeant Lari who is mostly tragically absent from this book The books most precious parts are when she arrives back in France and he is there to greet here and Bess learning that he is the one that alerted Bess mother that she was ill.Read this review and others on A Bookaholic Swede

    Well written and rich in historical detail and atmosphere, as always But the plot was a complete shambles.

    I really wanted to like this series and this book but now I feel as if I have to simply break up with it I was very interested in this book in particular because it dealt with the Spanish Flu, something I m quite interested in But the story was very lacking What detective work was Bess doing The detective work I did see was done by a secondary character, Simon and we never see the story from his eyes very disappointed.
