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. 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:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

Giveaway: A Touch Of Scandal

Book description:
The last thing Garrett, Duke of Calton, expects to find while tracking his sworn enemy is the delectable, mysterious Kate. This beautiful servant girl rouses a longing the battle-scarred ex-soldier had never
hoped to feel again. But when she turns out to be the sister of the man
he seeks, he's convinced he's been betrayed.
Kate knows her duty to her family, yet how can she ignore Garrett's powerful pull on
