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.

Other Tour Stops Today:
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.
