Songbird Under A German Moon By Tricia Goyer

Songbird Under a German Moon By Tricia Goyer

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 US Army
Signal Corps 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 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.

Songbird Under a German Moon by Tricia Goyer starts out with a heart-pounding action as the plane ferrying Betty, a bunch of soldiers, and a handsome photographer has trouble on their way to Germany. The war has ended and Betty has been hired to be a USO singer. She is stationed at the Opera House that Wagner operas were played at. In fact, prior to the American Forces taking it over, Wagner operas were the only music that reverberated off its walls.
Frank, the photographer on the plane is assigned to take pictures of the USO Show and singers. But his secret mission is to ferret out who is writing the disturbing letters that the Army is receiving that hint of destruction to come and if there are other forces at work at the Opera House. Things are not as they seem at the Opera House.
One of the USO singers, Kat, a famous actress, seems to have committed suicide in a pond on the grounds, after learning of her husband's death. Betty and Frank are the only ones who think that the Kat's death is not a suicide. But when Frank tells others of his suspicions, the finger is pointed at him as the murderer.
Betty and Frank team up to figure out what really happened to Kat. Frank becomes concerned that Betty may be the next target , too. Plus what is he to do about his burgeoning feelings for Betty?
Mysterious footsteps, sounds in the middle of the night, creaking floorboards and a maze of rooms. Is there a ghost that haunts the Wagner house where the USO women stay or is there something more sinister going on?
This was another great read from Tricia Goyer. I have her in-depth character development. You can place yourself in Betty's shoes as she is uncertain of her choices in life . In Frank's shoes, as he struggles with his self-worth, having never finished high school , before joining up to fight. He thinks he is unworthy to pursue Betty. I have never read a Trisha Goyer book that I didn't like.
