Blog Tour: Nightingale

Esther Lange doesn't love her fiancé-she's trapped in an engagement after a mistaken night of passion..

Still, she grieves him when he's lost in battle, the letters sent to her by the medic at his side giving her a strange comfort, so much that she strikes up a correspondence with Peter Hess, an Iowa farmboy. Or is he? 

Peter Hess is not who he seems. Indeed, he's hiding a secret, something that could cost them both their lives, especially when the past comes back to life. A bittersweet love song of the home front war between duty and the heart...a battle where only one will survive.

What I Thought
I like Susan May Warren's writing style. I like how she weaves romance and suspense together in a novel. I also like how she dives into history - especially in this series - and helps bring new life into the past.

I'll admit, this book was hard to read at times, and let's face it, it's not a "mind-candy" novel. It has depth and is complicated.

Words have power, and through her novel, Warren reminds readers the power of the written word - and how letters a.k.a. the written word - can and do propel relationships forward.

Honestly, you may find yourself wanting to write a letter to someone special in your life.  (In fact, just keep reading, because you can AND enter an awesome contest as well.)

On a scale of one to five, with five being the hightest, I give Nightingale at least a 4.5. It's a novel that you may find yourself reading again and again, simply to delve into the depth of the characters.

Other Books In The Series
Book 1: Sons of Thunder
Sophie Frangos is torn between the love of two men and the promise that binds them all together. Markos Stavros loves Sophie from afar while battling his thirst for vengeance and his hunger for honor. Dino, his quiet and intelligent brother, simply wants to forget the horror that drove them from their Greek island home to start a new life in America.

One of these sons of thunder offers a future she longs for, the other the past she lost. From the sultry Chicago jazz clubs of the roaring twenties to the World War II battlefields of Europe to a final showdown in a Greek island village, theyll discover betrayal, sacrifice and finally redemption.

Most of all, when Sophie is forced to make her choice, she'll learn that God honors the promises made by the Sons of Thunder.

Sons of Thunder launched the new Romantic Suspense line for Summerside Press. Its uniquely written - its an epic suspense story written as three novellas - three points of view, three settings.
