The Red Canary by Rachel Scott McDaniel ~ Review

My Review:

The Roaring 20's come to life in this suspenseful romance, filled with heart and faith. 

Witness to a murder, speakeasy singer Vera Pembroke finds herself  on the run and under the protection of Sergeant Mick Dinelo, a man determined to shut down the seedy underground schemes of the gangsters that changed his life forever. 

An engaging read from the start I was invested in Vera's plight, I loved how the author shows rather than tells how stuck Vera feels in her struggle to survive. Vera is a plucky heroine, she knows how to play the part, and is full of bravado, but craves something real. She and Mick could not be more different, and I liked their opposites attract friendship. I also liked how they both draw out the best in each other.

This is a well paced read with great characters, foreshadowing, and well plotted in a way that makes everything satisfyingly fall into place by the end. The characters are well developed and I loved the brother-sister duo of the Caption and Miss Lacey, who are fantastic friends, mentors, and guardian angels. 

Overall, a well written read, with well done character growth and portrayals of faith. Entertaining and well paced, I loved the chemistry of the friendship between Mick and Vera. Definitely recommend!

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
