When no one else believes her, will a WWII pilot save her from the enemy?
It's 1942, and WAAC Corporal, Pauline Lopez, is on sentry duty atop the Bolivar Point Lighthouse. Her job: to search for German U-boats, or submarines in the Gulf of Mexico responsible for sinking supply ships intended for U.S. Forces. When Pauline calls in enemy activity, the report is deemed a false alarm, and her reputation in the Women's Army Auxilliary Corps is soiled.
After meeting Pauline at a USO function, Army Air Corps pilot Captain Frank Chessher doesn't believe she deliberately called in a false report. He launches an investigation to clear her name, but he can't stop the rumors, and he can't force his fellow corpsmen to trust Pauline's reports.
The next time Pauline sees something that she knows is an authentic enemy attack, armed Nazi sailors are heading for Fort Travis where German POWs are being held. She calls Harbor Defense, but they refuse to help. No one is coming to rescue her.
Will Frank hear her Mayday call? Can he make it in time to save her from the enemy, or will she become a casualty of war?
If you like historical romance with strong female characters, you will love this book! I definitely recommend it, especially if you're from the Galveston, Texas region or familiar with the Bolivar lighthouse ... or just a fan of lighthouses in general! I only recently discovered Annette O'Hare's books, and "Search Light" is the fourth novel in a series; so now I need to go backwards and read the first three! I especially love that this one has a female protagonist set against the backdrop of World War II.
Set during World War II, WAACs Pauline and Mary Ellen scan the waters of Galveston Bay from high up in the Bolivar Lighthouse. German U-Boats have attacked oil tankers despite several forts and an army airfield nearby. A sweet romance with handsome pilots is included along with suspense in this well-written historical. Customs of the times are part of the story and details about the local area. Reading it was a delight.
