by Carole Brown

What do these two seasons have to do with writing?WMITH Bk Cover small-Modified earrings

It reminds me of the first book in the WWII Spies series, With Music in Their Hearts, where winter doesn’t want to give up its reign on the town of Cincinnati, Ohio.

Just like we’ve been having, and many other states too, spring has edged out the colder weather earlier than usual this year. We’ve gotten spoiled by the shirt-sleeve weather and sometimes forget that, really, it’s still the winter season. Until…snow and cold and furious winds sweep in and demand a few more days of winter. 

As in With Music in Their Hearts where Emma Jaine enjoys the warmer days–jacket weather. But in the last scene we see that winter demands a few more days of attention. When Tyrell Walker and Emma Jaine pause on the…

Oops. Almost gave away a bit of that ending. Can’t do that. It wouldn’t be fair to the readers. Everyone enjoys a good surprise, right? 🙂

A READER’S THOUGHTS on With Music in Their Hearts:

I opened to chapter one in my Kindle and heard the music coming from the piano at the boarding house. I felt a part of the intrigue and saw the characters as they interacted with one another. Carole Brown’s World War II spy novel With the Music in Their Hearts is a fascinating read. The realistic dialogue, setting and characters’ dress drew me into this 1940’s mystery. Americans spying on Americans during a turbulent time in history perked my interest. Make that spy a pastor and add some romance and I was fully engaged. The characters reminded me of an old black and white movie from the period especially the way the men and women flirted and behaved. Carole is a gifted writer and meticulous researcher. Both talents show through in this page turner. Some may refer to it as cozy because there isn’t a lot of graphic violence. But the suspense still rings true. Lovers of World War II historicals aren’t the only ones who will enjoy this novel. If this time period is not your normal fare give With Music In their Hearts a look. You won’t be disappointed. –Cindy Huff
