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

Tricia Goyer is another author that I found through the Litfuse Nest Blogger program. I've reviewed several of Mrs. Goyer's books, including The Swiss Courier, Every Sunrise, A Whisper of Freedom, and Generation NeXt Marriage. Each book has confirmed that Mrs. Goyer is an author worth reading.

Songbird Under a German Moon is another winner for me. The romance of a bygone era lives and breathes within its pages, and the mystery is intriguing, making you want to keep reading so you can find out what really happened. Some of the plot twists were not complete surprises, but they were exciting nonetheless. The characters felt human, and the details included in the story showed that Mrs. Goyer took the time to thoroughly research her subject.

If you like romantic fiction set in the WWII era, you'll enjoy reading Songbird Under a German Moon.
