My agency mate at Hartline Literary, Carole Brown, has a new book coming out in November. Here’s a sneak peek at her World War II novel, With Music in Their Hearts, part of The Spies of World War II series.
Angry at being rejected for military service, Minister Tyrell Walker accepts the call to serve as a civilian spy within his own country. Across the river from Cincinnati, Ohio, a spy working for a foreign country is stealing secret plans for newly developed ammunition to be used in the war. According to his FBI cousin, 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.
But once she picked up her “writing pen,” it didn’t take her long to regain the passion for writing she’d secretly felt for years.Carole is represented by Diana Flegal of Hartline Literary. Besides her writing, Carole and her husband, Dan, are involved–as much as possible–in enjoying and sharing in the lives of their three grandsons: Blake, Wesley, and Jonathan.
