Songbird Under a German Moon

Take a trip back to Germany at the end of World War II with Betty as she arrives by plane to entertain soldiers. Songbird Under A German Moon by Tricia Goyer is an interesting look into history with murder, intrigue and even a love story.
This book started a little slow but quickly picked up pace and became a real page-turner for me. Tricia really brought the characters to life and I could picture the theater where Betty worked and the boarding house where she lived. I enjoyed reading about Germany in post WW II.
About the book:
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.

I'll have to take your word for it because my copy never arrived - it's lost in the mail somewhere! :(

I'll have to check at my library - this sounds like a book I'd enjoy.
