About the Book:
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 each other.

But will they have a chance for their romance to sing? The truth will be revealed under a German moon.

My Review:
Having really enjoyed the Love Inspired series by Summerside Press I was really excited to read Songbird Under a German Moon, one of the first releases in their new suspense line. So far I have not been disappointed. While I was a little frustrated with the lack of romantic interaction between USO singer Betty Lake and U.S. Army Air Corps photographer, Frank Witt. I did enjoy the mystery even though I knew "whodunit" right from the start.

I really loved the setting of war torn Germany as I don't think I've ever read a novel set in post-Hitler Germany. I liked Betty and Frank but I didn't connect with any of the other characters which is fine if this is a stand alone book. Overall it was a good story but I definitely think Tricia's Collaboration with Mike Yorkey on The Swiss Courier (my review) is the book to read for a more fleshed out suspense. If you enjoy an entertaining, light, romance with a different setting this may be something that you would like to read. I'm really pleased with Summerside Press's releases and look forward to reading their next release.
