Review: Aiding the Enemy by Julie Rowe - Book Tour

Book three of War Girls

German-occupied Brussels, Belgium
December 1915

Rose Culver is in grave danger. For months the Red Cross head nurse has been aiding Allied soldiers caught behind enemy lines, helping them flee into neutral Netherlands. It's only a matter of time until she's caught. Which makes it the wrong time to fall in love with a handsome German military doctor as devoted to the sanctity of human life as she is.

The Great War has caused Dr. Herman Geoff to question everything he once believed. He knows Rose has been hiding British soldiers in her hospital—he's even treated some of them, refusing to go against his own Hippocratic oath. As a doctor, he admires Rose's skill and conviction. As a man, he can no longer deny his attraction to her. But when Rose is arrested for treason, Herman must choose between love for her and duty to his country...

 Even though this is the third book in the War Girls Series, it works just fine as a stand alone.  I did read the first 2 books and enjoyed them, they aren't long, just over 100 pages each, plus they are more historical romance verses historical fiction. 

Though I am not a big fan of romance, I do have to say that I enjoyed reading all three books, but Aiding the Enemy would be my favorite. The author wrote in a way that I was able to connect with Rose, I could understand her need to help soldiers flee a country at war and as a nurse to help those suffering and care for their needs.  Briefly being introduced to Herman Geoff in the first book, it wasn't hard to see where he was coming from and feel his concerns and feeling for his country. The tough decisions he had to make while at the same time putting others at risk.

I think this book gave more details on the struggle and difficult's with getting out of the country and it added nicely to the story. 

For the size of this story I enjoyed it and think it was well written, though I do think that with a little more descriptions and historical facts that this would make a wonderful full length novel.

I am hoping that this series continues because I would like to know what happens to each of the couples.
