Reseñas Varias sobre este libro

Army Girls, Being the Guns is the newest addition to Fenella J Miller's Army Girls series.

Ruth Cox is now a trained ginger girl, dedicated to safeguarding our skies from enemy planes to protect our troops. Along the way, she encounters the charming Sam Johnson, but Ruth prefers too keep their relationship casual to focus on her career. Despite Sam's affection for Ruth, their military duties apostate them to different regions as they contribute to the war effort.

I always find Fenella's stories captivating and this one is no exception! The fact that pays off the story we're set in my bone county of Lincolnshire, just 30 minutes from my town, added a special touch. I recommend getting your hands on a copy today.1 Nicola Michelle1,457 11

Fenella J Miller certainly knows how to write an entertaining wartime series and just her ‘Goodwill House’ series, the Army Girls has also been absolutely brilliant so far. In fact, I think it might be my favourite of hers that I’ve read. The previous two books have been brilliant and this one a great addition.

You don’t necessarily have needed to read the ones prior to this as it works as a standalone within the same series. But the other two are great so if you haven’t read them, I’d recommend.

Ruby Cox, a character we’ve come to get to know, embarks on her journey as a gunner girl and meets the handsome corporal, Samuel, along the way. But can their newly fledged relationship survive the pressures of war?

Right from the start, boarding the train with Ruby, it immediately set you up on a journey you knew you were going to enjoy. I loved the romance element and the development of Ruby and it was thoroughly enjoyable and a fab read. I got more and more invested as I read on and now I absolutely can’t wait for the next instalment.

Thank you to the author and publisher for this book on NetGalley in return for my honest thoughts and review. e-book fiction1 Patty705 14

Another great addition to the Army Girls series!

While this book is part of a series, it can easily be read as a standalone. There are infrequent mentions of prior characters, but as background, nothing more.

This book centers on Ruth, a feisty woman who continues to work her way through various Army positions and is now a bombadier. This rank puts her above a lot of fellow servicemen and women, and it is during one such encounter she meets Sam. The rest of the story takes place during their relationship and their time in service, as well as some unexpected adventures.

I enjoyed this book, it is well written and moves along quickly, but that doesn’t mean you don’t get invested in the characters. I can’t wait to see what is next for Ruth and Sam!

Thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley for the opportunity to read and review this book, but my opinions are my own.1 Leanne1,613 22

In Behind the Guns we follow the story of Ruth as she meets Sam and sparks fly. Once again Fenella has weaved a tale of many emotions with facts from the era woven through to make a page turning plot. I enjoy learning little bits and pieces that I didn't know of the era. I feel that this book focuses more on the relationships of the characters rather than the war making it more light hearted. I think Sam is my favourite character of the series so far because he is so incredibly down to earth and such a gentleman. I enjoyed reading this character driven novel and looking forward to the next. Staceywh_172,634 19

How are we on the third in the series already? I've enjoyed every installment to the series and await each new with baited breath.

I've been on board since the first, so it's been lovely to see the girls' characters develop and come into their own, whilst everything else falls apart as the war still rages on.

The authors writing is descriptive because of her research into the era, and this made it easy to visualise events.

A brilliant wartime romance that's entertaining, enjoyable and was a pleasure to read. Diane824 15

Behind the guns is the third book in this series. This book tells Ruth’s story and how she meets Sam. These books are great as Fenella writes in a way that draws you in so you really get involved in the characters lives during this difficult time. If you war time sagas I highly recommend these books they can all be read as standalone books but I’m sure you would enjoy the whole series more. Inishowen Cailín825 44

Behind the Guns is the third book in the Army Girls series and can be read as a standalone.
This instalment centres around Ruth and her career choice as a gunner. She meets Sam en route to her new training grounds and sparks fly immediately. Their meeting is fraught with drama which brings them closer together quite quickly. With a war going on they waste no time in declaring their feelings and desire to get to know one another better. The time-period is a good showcase for an old-fashioned romance where love blooms with the anticipation of and the exchange of letters and notes. With Sam and Ruth you really get a sense of the longing they felt and the wish to be stationed near each other so that they would have opportunities to meet. There is never a dull moment when the pair are together as they attract trouble and drama at every turn. I couldn't wait to see how things would turn out for them especially after Sam's family troubles come to light. I was surprised at the abrupt ending as I would have loved to see more of this family drama and learn how Sam and Ruth fared with their change in circumstances. But I loved every minute of this warm and dramatic story.netgalley Georgina428 8

Whilst this is a good story, it didn't finish as completely as Fenella Miller's books usually do, even allowing for it being a series, there's too many loose ends for me. I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the hope that it will tie up some of those loose ends. Jayne Greig102 3

What a gorgeous read, loved it and very descriptive of the place and era. You can visualise being there and working with them. The characters are alive and you feel you know them, well worth getting to know them. Caroline PalmerAuthor 1 book24

A sweet war time romance that focuses more on the relationships and their constant promotions than the character’s wartime duties and the war. jackie yeomans8

Book 3

I've read all the books in the series up to now and they have all kept me hooked from the beginning excellent stories P.M.Godfrey3

interesting story

Enjoyed it but not as much as the book one. Too much emphasis on Sam and Ruth’s love story and not enough on their position’s within the Army. Pat Langhelt905 9

Another great by the author, Ruth and Sam's story in the army just flows, and before I know it, I have finished it. Look forward to the next book. Jen326 4
