Songbird Under a German Moon by Tricia Goyer with US/Canadian Giveaway

Synopsis:~

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 night’s 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 U.S. Army Signal Corps Photographer. Yet the next night this songbird is ready to fly the coop when her dear friend, Kat, turns up missing. Betty soon realizes Frank’s 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 take:~

In the first of Summerside Press' foray into romantic suspense, Songbird Under A German Moon transports the reader to post war Germany. Tricia Goyer excels at immersing the reader in the sights and sounds of the era and she had my heart pounding as Betty and Frank try to uncover the truth behind a tragic murder. I admit I was distracted by constant references to Frank's handsome appearance in the first third of the story but this does not take anything away from the intriguing suspense and unfolding mystery. The sweet relationship develops nicely between the naive and idealist singer and the combat photographer with a higher purpose. Kudos to Summerside and Tricia for writing about a unique and less well known time in history. Songbird Under A German Moon is an excellent addition to Summerside's expanding range and I look forward to more in this collection.

I haven't read any of Tricia Goyer's books although I have The Swiss Courier on my TBR list. My favorite historical period to read about is the 19th Century but medieval times would come in second place of the choices listed. I haven't really read a lot of things that are set in the 18th century.
