Jasmine Nights: A Novel by Julia Gregson

If you like works of fiction dealing in adventure, conflict (both physical and emotional), humor, romance, suspense, and travel; this book is for you.

The main characters: Saba Tarcan (a half Turkish - half British 23 year old who has hefty dreams of becoming a professional singer) and Dom Benson (a half French - half British 23 year old Pilot Officer who learned to fly at Cambridge). 

The setting: Wales, London, Africa, and mostly the Middle East. 

This is a fictional novel based on true accounts of female entertainers used as spies during WWII.  It has just about everything you would want out of a book.  I like that the author was very detailed.  The only thing that I had a problem with was when she used British slang for a lot of things.  I kind of got lost during those parts.  Other than that... awesome read.  I give it a 9 out of 10.
