In 1943, Lane Mercer and Emmie Tesco had nothing in common. Well, nothing stronger than a town neither of them chose and careers they couldn’t advertise as agents within the Office of Strategic Services. During the days of Longview, Texas’s Friendly Trek Homecoming Parade, Lane was gearing up for the grand opening of a bookshop that also disguised an espionage safe house, and Emmie was chasing a criminal with evil intent through the US Army’s new medical facility, Harmon General Hospital, treating diseased and amputated soldiers. Emmie ropes Lane into international threats at Harmon General, making it increasingly hard for the two spies to navigate the Junior Service League, church life, or anything else that might be considered normal for a town sizzling with oil boom wealth. A friend from Lane’s past arrives and pushes against the fiction she’s created to distance her spy history from the wedding bells ringing her future. Emmie flirts with the idea of finding a life outside of the OSS but justifies the danger as a way to make amends for those she’s betrayed. Connecting the two women, to their surprise, is a rogue agent who targets them for crimes he believes they created. For better, or worse, they have to put aside their differences to share responsibility for stopping “The Grasshopper” before he blows apart the Big Inch Pipeline project and Harmon General Hospital. The hope of malaria treatments for US soldiers depends on it, and justice of the heart demands it. 

PRAISE FOR HARMON GENERAL:

“The war that changed the world brought the world to East Texas through Harmon General, a significant US Army hospital that treated thousands of wounded soldiers in Longview.  In Harmon General, we meet again Lane Mercer, a World War II heroine, and we enjoy again how the drama of her secret service to the nation and her complicated personal relationships pull us into the vast impact of the world war.” — Dale Lunsford, Ph.D., President, LeTourneau University


Harmon General is a brilliant story for historical fiction readers! Set in World War II, the female spies, Army hospital setting, and drama amongst the Longview townsfolk kept me riveted and engaged until the very end.” – Jody T. Morse

 I would just like to apologize in advance for any squeals that this review may contain. Now that you have been warned; what the actual heck?! I’ve been told numerous times that Kimberly Fish was an author to watch out for, but my goodness I was not warned enough! Harmon General was the very first novel I’ve read by Fish and it surely won’t be the last! As it turns out, Harmon General is the second installment of a series, following The Big Inch, but can be read as a stand alone as I had done.

 Immediately into the prologue,  the reader is sent on a whirlwind of speculation as to who or what Emmie Tesco is doing. As well as where a little, small town gal can get her hands on those clever contraptions like Emmie’s ring. It doesn’t stop there though. About halfway through the novel, Fish pushes the reader over the edge into a quick paced story that is hard to out down! I’m not even joking I was up all night finishing this novel because I was immersed. Never before have my emotions ever been so actively involved in a story.

 As noted in the back of the novel, Kimberly has plans for book 3 which promises the perfect wedding for Lane and Zeke! Eek! You better believe that I’m already on the hunt for book 1 so that I can have a complete set when I order the next installment. Here’s to a possible new favorite author.

 Would I recommend this novel? The better question is, do I like breathing? Yep… definitely like breathing, I do it 24/7. Well, except for when Emmie or Lane do something that takes my breath away and almost gives me a heart attack over their shenanigans. On a more serious note, I HIGHLY recommend Harmon General to everyone from history buffs all the way to readers of mixed genres. Harmon General may throw you back in time, but its story is timeless.

A WORD FROM THE AUTHOR:

Kimberly Fish started writing professionally with the birth of her second child and the purchase of a home computer. Having found this dubious outlet, she then entered and won The Writer’s League of Texas manuscript contest which fed her on-going fascination with story crafting. 


She has since published in magazines, newspapers, and online formats and in January 2017, released the first novel in the Misfits and Millionaires series set during the World War II years in Longview, Texas—The Big Inch. Her second book, Comfort Plans, was published later that same year.


She lives with her family in East Texas.
