    I ve read all the books in this series and enjoyed them as I did this one, however, I didn t think it was as good as the previous books I loved meeting Peggy again and Ron, Harvey and Queenie are still my favorite trio up to their usual shenanigans Once again Ron has let Rosie down and spends most of the book unsure of what s happening to their relationship Peggy is trying to keep them all going at Beach View and still having run ins with her snooty sister Doris and with her sister in law Pauline in this story.There were chapters which dealt with the war in Burma, where Jim is stationed and I enjoyed these as my Uncle fought out there at that time.Some things irritated me in this one Doris is just becoming wearisome at this point Peggy would stand up to Hitler himself if any of her immediate family or girls boarding with her were in trouble, yet she lets Doris walk all over her, put her family down and treat Peggy herself like dirt I don t think anyone would put up with this, family or not It doesn t ring true Here in this one we have Pauline following the same path and again Peggy says very little.Also they re in the fourth year of the war and they still have sugar for their tea and for baking cakes A string of sausages even appear and I think these things were well gone at this stage.It just felt like not a lot happened in this book, other than one person insulting another and a lot of the people got on my nerves.

    Another fabulous book from Ellie Dean in the Beach View Series and i have to say i know the end is coming but will cry when it does.This series of books have followed the reilly family through the war in their every day lives.All the new faces that have been welcomed by the family and those that have not.Well worth 5 and .

    It s hard to believe that I have now read fourteen books in this series The characters and the town of Cliffehaven now feel like old friends This installment did not disappoint, as it focused on all those old friends rather than introducing new characters It is now the spring of 1944, and everyone can tell that the Allies are preparing for an invasion of France, but no one knows when or where it will happen This leads to a great deal of worry and tension, as almost everyone has loved ones that will be affected As well, people are dealing with the continuing hardships of the war, including rationing, travel restrictions, and lack of communication with loved ones Added to all this is the fact that many complicated relationships have been formed as a result of the war Much of the focus of this novel is the personal problems of the various characters, with the war as a backdrop and sometimes causative factor for those problems This gives the book a bit of a soap opera feel, as there are many story lines involving relationship drama running at the same time, and a generous dose of humor and improbability Surprisingly this approach works very well, in spite of feeling somewhat disjointed at times The book ends with a couple of big and rather improbable turns of events, which I think will provide lots of new material for future books The war is drawing to a close, and thus the series likely is as well, and unfortunately I am now caught up and must wait a few months to find out what happens next.

    BrilliantYet again I couldn t put this down Have read the story of Peggy right from the start and now can t wait for her next one So full of life with its ups and downs One minute I feel really sad and the next laughing at the antics of Ron and Harvey and now Queenie is starting to join them Poor Danuta and what she went through to help during the war The hours of research are incredible to tell the story of what went on to save this country from the Nazis How Peggy copes with the rationing and her family spread out is sad and yet how true it would have been Loved that Ethel got her just desserts and hope to read next time that Stan is happy again Roll on August when the next instalment arrives on my kindle.

    I read the entire 15 book series and preordered the final book which is due out in Jan 2019 I read a lot about this period so sometimes want something a little lighter and this is where this series comes in The characters are entertains and fast changing but with an uplifting end to each of their stories,you can also enjoy the boarding house setting throughout the series,but one thing that amazes me is the amount of Spam those folks ate LOL Wonder how they survived through such horrible times Read the series,it s worth the time invested Won t review the books individually but rate them all four star as they are very entertaining.

    I began the last in the Beach View series with a feeling of sadness as it s 1944 and things are drawing to a conclusion as far as the war is heading I wanted to savour the story and read it slowly, but as usual I m left wanting The way the last few chapters run, I didn t think they d go this way, but it s wartime and things happen I m eagerly looking forward to August and the imminent release of the next book I don t want to comment on the story, as spoilers can be easily dropped in, but it s up there as one of Ellie Dean s best yet
