Mrs Pippin, I enjoyed your first novel, Blood Moon Over Bengal last year and have been looking forward to. .You did an excellent job inserting everyday facts of life in war torn Britain without it sounding like a history lecture.

Mrs Pippin, I enjoyed your first novel, Blood Moon Over Bengal last year and have been looking forward to what you’d write about next. I’m glad to say this one is just as good if not better. I think the war time setting is great and well done. Your characters do these things rather than just tell us about rationing, food coupon books, the black market, train travel, bombing raids in London, etc. I also like how you show how patriotic the entire country was, how willing to put up with all these restrictions and depravations in the true belief that this helped their fighting men overseas.

England is at war and the breaking of the Enigma Code maybe Allies only hope. When Cicely Winterbourne finds a clue to breaking the code, she finds herself on the run with Alistair Fielding a war hero of Dunkirk and member of Scotland Yard Alistair and Cicely are now running from Germans and Russians and the whole course of freedom hangs in the balance.
"Blood Moon over Britain" by Morag McKendrick Pippin is not good at all. I thought that the characters and storyline were very uninteresting. I found myself flipping pages and hoping for the end sooner than later. If you are a fan of war-time books there are better books out there than "Blood Moon over Britain."

A quick read and not unpleasant. Interesting plot and characters. However, the author's over use of period (WWII) jargon and slang and terms detracts from an enjoyable experience. To get the flavor of a period, judicious insertions of period-correct terms should be limited. Check out any good Regency to figure out the ratio.

By December 1942 the war looks bleak for Britain as the Americans may prove too late to save them. The rest of Europe has fallen or meekly signed a non aggression pact while the Luftwaffe seems to be winning the air war, the U-Boats the naval war, and the ground front going General Rommel's way. Publicly except for Churchill there seems no hope. However, a top secret project at Bletchley Park has provided a possibility to those involved as the German Enigma Code has been broken and decoding messages 7 has given an edge to the allied forces.

Though the local cops ruled it a suicide, Scotland Yard Special Branch Inspector Alistair Fielding treats the death like a homicide. He interrogates those who knew Graham Mason starting with his cousin Cicely Winterbourne, who works at Bletchley Park. When a second suspicious death related to the Enigma Code occurs, Cicely believes someone wants a secret kept hidden. She wants to trust Fielding who she is falling in love with, but the first law of espionage is trust no one. Cicely risks her life to uncover who would kill to insure that certain secret remains interred.

This excellent historical espionage police procedural contains a powerful atmosphere, which paints an intriguing duality of how the British feel about the war though nothing seems to be going right there is a feeling fostered by Churchill that they will win. The first paragraph above is the scenario incorporated inside the second paragraph by following the professional investigation of Fielding contrasted with the amateur sleuthing of Winterbourne. The romance just adds to the case matchmaking relationship between them. Readers will treasure this finest hour World War II thriller.

Morag McKendrick Pippin seduced me into reading this 1942 historical romance with a one,legged body on page one. Shortly afterwards, Inspector Alistair Fielding meets Miss. Cicely Winterborne when he questions her about her cousin's apparent suicide. They feel an attraction toward each other and the tension, romantic and otherwise begins to rise.

Ms.McKendrick Pippin is skilled in her use of World War 11 slang while characters contend with rationing, blackouts, bombing, fear and each other. She gives a feeling of being there with her vivid descriptions of sight and sound.

Although Cicely claims to be an innocent file clerk, she works at Betchley Park on top secret data which spews forth from the German Enigma machine. This data may result in turning defeat into victory for the allied forces and Cicely lies and misleads like a good spy.

Alistair is repulsed by her lying and cheating and cannot imagine how they could ever settle down together though he feels more and more attracted to Cicely. He does not trust her, nor she him.

Ms. McKendrick weaves an exciting tale of mystery and romance mingled with fear, but the book is laced throughout with touches of light hearted humor.

I eagerly look forward to Ms. McKendrick Pippin's next novel.

I so wanted to like this book but at about half way thru I started skimming pages and then just completely lost interest. Even with some of the truly mediocre books I can usually get to the end but sorry to say...I just quit it at the 75% point. There was simply nothing to keep my interest going. One of the problems was the lack of action in what should have been an action packed story. What little action scenes were given seemed to be drawn out unbearably long. Also, the author thought by using WWII era British slang it would seem to make the story more real ...instead it just made the reader have to slow down and try to figure out what the author was saying. A little slang is ok but to be bombarded just made the story hard to comprehend.

Rarely, do I give less than 3 stars in recognition that every novel is someone's sweat and tears. Just wish the author had had a better editor who could have streamlined the book.

I wish more authors would drop away from the overdone and give us something like this! Ms. Pippin provides a few hours of escape. This is a book that will keep you rooting for the "old girl" right up to the very last!! Loved it!!
