In her second World War II adventure, Women Air Force Service Pilot (WASP) Pucci Lewis travels to Fort Roach in Hollywood to make sure the World War II Victory short about the WASPs, currently being filmed there, accurately represents their service as Miss Cochran, her boss, travels to Washington, D.C. to get the WASPs the military recognition they deserve. Pucci will also investigate a plane crash in which a sister WASP, Frankie, was badly injured, as Miss Cochran believes Frankie’s plane may h ...more

WASPs (Women Airforce Service Pilots) were a group of women that took to the air during World War II. The public had mixed emotions about this group of women who were willing to risk everything to help their country. Pucci Lewis is one of these women. Pucci is a good pilot and trained in undercover work.

Her latest assignment is Hollywood. Jackie Cochran, Pucci’s boss and head of the WASP, is sending Pucci to replace Frankie Beall, an ace pilot and Pucci’s friend. Frankie is in critical condition

I enjoyed this second entry in the Pucci Lewis series. Pucci goes to Hollywood to help make a movie short about the WASPs and to find out about some sabotage that put a fellow flyer in a coma.

Others may enjoy this story more than I did. It was a freebie hardback (published in 2009) from the 2011 HNS goodie bag. Although I don't normally read mysteries, I thought I'd push my boundaries, because this involved the fledgling Women's Airforce Service Pilots (WASP), a pioneering group of women pilots who supported the WWII war effort by ferrying planes across the US and the Atlantic--a group I've always admired and feel more people should know about. The research and detail that went into ...more

I picked up this book on the new fiction shelf on a whim. It wasn't a bad book, there were some grammar problems, but I thought the plot was good. I enjoyed reading about the fictious story that was based around historical events, it makes it seem more real (or at least possible). I know there is another book written by this author starring Pucci Lewis, but I probably won't ever read it.

Pucci Lewis' war work is flying as a Women's Auxiliary Service Pilot. But to her delight, Jacqueline Cochran, head of the WASPs, is sending her to Hollywood to help with a documentary on their work. And there's an undercover component to the job: the last pilot sent as an advisor had a mysterious crash that may be sabotage. This is Pucci's second World War II adventure.

Shelves: crime-fiction
Charming depiction of the period with movie-type characters and a plot that conjures up the silver screen. But the best part is the story of those brave and lively young women who flew planes in WWII and never got much credit for it. Loved the author's take on all of that.
Jessica
Liesche makes excellent use of her Hungarian heritage here and does nicely with weaving in real-life countrymen like Bela Lugosi. The staccato style works well as a period piece, but I wish Pucci were a little more fleshed out.
