Book Review Friday: Stars in the Night
The mind of a reader can never be stretched too far. With each book picked from the shelf a whole new world is unlocked as the front cover is lifted, opened by hands eager to explore its contents.
There are many exotic places to embrace, elements of time to capture, and new people for me to meet-all sitting on my book case and waiting for me to arrive. I'm always sorry I cannot spend more time in novels, but I know they will be there when the time comes.
...and the time has come for me to introduce you to another novel by another wonderful author:
Hollywood 1942. When attorney Audra Schaeffer's sister disappears, Audra flies to Hollywood to find her but instead must identify her body. Determined to bring the killer to justice, Audra takes a job with the second Hollywood Victory Caravan. Together with Robert Garfield and other stars, she crisscrosses the southern United States in a campaign to sell war bonds. When two other women are found dead on the train, Audra knows the deaths are tied to that of her sister. Could the killer be the man with whom she's falling in love?
Mystery. Love. Tension. Who wouldn't love a good suspense novel? Cara Putman does an excellent job of adding real life people to an unusual situation, adding mystery in a who-dun-it atmosphere, and sharing her faith in Christ while making the reader believe he/she is placed in the time period of Victory Caravans and stunning silver screen actors!
I felt as if I were picturing the likes of Lana Turner, Cary Grant, Heddy Lamar, Burt Lancaster, and Betty Davis as I read through the pages of Stars in the Night.
If you love suspense, romance, and glittery personalities you'll love this novel by Cara Putman!
