Angry at being rejected for military service, Minister Tyrell Walker accepts the call to serve as a civilian spy. Across the river from Cincinnati, Ohio, a foreign spy is stealing secret plans for newly developed ammunition. This spy favors pink stationery giving strong indications that a woman is involved.
He’s instructed to obtain a room in the Rayner Boarding House run by the lovely, spunky red-haired Emma Jaine Rayner. Sparks of jealousy and love fly between them immediately even as they battle suspicions that one or the other is not on the up and up.
As Tyrell works to keep his double life a secret and locate the traitor, he refuses to believe that Emma Jaine could be involved even when he sees a red-haired woman in the arms of another man.
Will their love survive the danger and personal issues that arise to hinder the path of true love?
I opened 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. –an Amazon Reviewer
