The dream of a lifetime becomes a nightmare.
Photojournalist Theodora “Teddy” Schafer’s career has hit the skids thanks to rumors of plagiarism. With any luck, a photo spread with Charles Lindbergh at the America First Rally will salvage her reputation. After an attempted assassination of Lindbergh leaves another man dead, Teddy is left holding the gun. Literally. Can she prove her innocence before the police lock her up for a murder she didn’t commit?
Private Investigator Ric Bogart wants nothing to do with women after his wife cleaned out their bank account and left him for another man, but he can’t ignore the feeling he’s supposed to help the scrappy, female reporter who is arrested for murder at the America First rally. Can he believe her claims of innocence and find the real killer without letting Teddy steal his heart?
It is May 1941, and opinions on whether the US should join WW2 are rampant. Many are in favor, with some of the more famous people being very vocally against. For those in WW1, the thought of joining and fighting again brings back many memories, mostly not so good. The comradery between those who survived became a life line for many of them.
Teddy Schafer is a well-known photojournalist. While taking pictures at a widely publicized event, she notices someone about to shoot the speaker. Trying to intervene, what follows is a nightmare - she is arrested for the deed. God must surely have turned His back on her - or so she thinks. With the help of Ric Bogart of Bogart Investigations, she sets out to prove her innocence.
The author has done a fantastic job of keeping the reader guessing between assaults, kidnapping, imprisonment and more. Who is the shooter and who is his target? This ARC was received through CelebrateLit and BookFunnel. These impressions and comments are my own and were in no way solicited.
