Songbird Under a German Moon - Tricia Goyer (BLOG TOUR & LINK TO CONTEST)


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 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 Opinion:
After reading All Things Hidden, I couldn't wait to read this book. Plus the cover is absolutely divine! All the makings of a great time to me. Unfortunately, it was just okay.
Tricia is such a lovely writer, the flow of the words makes the books so easy to read. But this time I was not pulled in as much as before. Maybe it was the jump from Amish life to War Era, but I couldn't get into it.
The characters were great, Betty is the main character and a singer, but Frank is the one who I enjoy reading about. Her love interest. Big, strong, tough guy that is sensitive too. Every girl's dream!
I'm sure a lot of women would enjoy this book, romance junkies that is.
(3/5)

  3. The cover is gorgeous, but I just love the title. I do enjoy a good romance occasionally, but the war era is not usually my thing.

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…

REVIEW: Inside the prize pack my family received, was some super cool experiments to try. Here is a snap of our Levitation adventures;


It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
