Walking on Hidden Wings by Rachel Scott McDaniel: Book Review

 *Book received for consideration. All thoughts are my own.

Geneva Ashcroft Hayes's marriage to a newspaper mogul might have been arranged, but the New York socialite is devastated when her husband's plane crashes a few short months after their nuptials. When the authorities suspect murder, Geneva sets out on a wild mission to find his killer--and to prove it wasn't her!

When mysterious notes surface pointing to Geneva's guilt in his death, they only strengthen her resolve. She has little to go on except for a detective friend's cryptic list of locations connected to her dead spouse. When the friend also disappears, she trades her sparkling gowns for coveralls and pilot goggles.

Armed with a new name and career as a wingwalker and barnstormer, she travels from town to town in hopes of unearthing clues and locating her missing friend. But Geneva discovers that her past may not belong to her . . . what she once believed as truth may be nothing more than lies and deception.

A fantastic mystery filled story blended with beautiful swoon-worthy romance... all set in the 1920s!? Um, yes, please! There was so much to love about this story! The story alternates between two timelines---one being Geneva's current life searching for answers as to what happened to the husband she's been accused of murdering and then back to the start of their rather unconventional meeting and marriage. While sometimes dual timelines like this can get a little confusing, I thought this one was done just perfectly. The balance was perfect between the two... each keeping me absolutely captivated and wanting to find out what is going to happen. I don't want to say too much and give anything away... but this one kept me guessing in the best possible way and I absolutely adored it! The mystery and adventure kept me at the edge of my seat... but the romance stole the show for me. Oh my goodness, I just couldn't get enough of Geneva and Warren together! If you love a good kissing book--- well, this is definitely it!

That said, the kisses are a little more detailed than we often see in Christian fiction, and it does have some vague fade to black moments and implied intimacy off pages (between a married couple, not at all explicit). While it's definitely closed door, it may still be more than some readers are comfortable with. There is also mention of miscarriage, which could be triggering for some readers. 

If you love a great historical romance, this is one not to be missed.
