Songbird Under a German Moon
The year is 1945. The war is over and 21-year-old Betty Lake has been invited to Europe to sing in a USO tour for American soldiers who now occupy Hitler's Germany. The first nights performance is a hit. Betty becomes enthralled with the applause, the former Nazi-held mansion they're housed in and the attention of Frank Witt, the US Army Signal Corp Photographer. Yet the next night this songbird is ready to fly the coop when Betty's dear friend, Kat, turns up missing. Betty soon realizes Franks photographs could be the key to finding Kat. Betty and Frank team up against post-war Nazi influences and the two lovebirds' hearts may find the answers...in each other.
But will they have a chance for their romance to sing? The truth will be revealed under a German moon.
My Review - As I said in an earlier review, this is the year for WWII stories. I am not a fan of this time era, however, this was a page turner from PG 1 all the way to PG 330! Being a former Navy brat, and ex Navy wife, I have some knowledge about the groups that go over to entertain the troops. My Dad was in Nam, and my Ex was in the Gulf and Somolia. Tricia's excellent research and beautiful story telling made this book a great read from start to finish! I highly recommend it! I have to say it really doesn't matter what your favorite time period is you will be swept up in the story and taken away.
