The Red Canary by Rachel Scott McDaniel

Nightclub singer Vera Pembroke finds herself in danger after her manager at the club is found dead.  She is forced to hide with Sergeant Mike Forest in the Allegheny Forest, a man who hates her profession and is constantly annoyed at her spunky independence.  However, despite their bickering, Vera and Mike must work together to find the killer and solve the murder before it is too late.

The Red Canary is a fantastic blend of a fierce intelligent heroine, a dependable stoic hero, and the dazzle of the roaring 20s.  I really enjoyed the dichotomy of the main characters and loved their banter and interactions.  I also liked their growth throughout the story.  There is also some great suspense and mystery woven in the book that made it easy for me to be drawn into the novel and made it difficult to put down!  The author’s ability to weave details in her stories cause them to come alive and make them so much fun to read.  There are also spiritual truths in the book that are relatable and real.  I greatly enjoyed this book and look forward to more from this wonderful author!  Highly recommended!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author.  Opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.
