Reviewer Tour of The Red Canary by Rachel Scott McDaniel

Music sparks her world, but can love ignite her heart?

In 1928, soot from the local mills and music from speakeasies linger in the Pittsburgh air. When the manager of The Kelly Club is found dead, nightclub singer Vera Pembroke is thrust into peril. As the only witness to the crime, she’s sentenced to hide away in the Allegheny Forest with a stuffy police sergeant as her guardian.

    Sergeant Mick Dinelo harbors a burning hatred for Pittsburgh’s underworld after the devastation it left on his life—and heart. He should be out exposing culpable gangsters rather than tending to the impetuous woman who defies his every effort to keep her safe.

    Mick and Vera must set aside their differences to solve the murder that someone wants to keep buried beneath the soot of Steel City.

The story had the exciting backdrop of the Roaring Twenties, 1928 Pittsburgh. Vera, a singer in the Kelly Club is Angelo's girl. Little does she know what really goes on at the club. Sergeant Mick Dinelo visits the club undercover due to an investigation. Vera hears something she wasn't supposed to hear and know she is running for her life with Mick assigned to protect her. Mick is dealing with some demons of his own.

I loved the scriptural references throughout the story. The characters were amazing, the storyline intriguing with lots of action. I loved how the author gradually showed the budding romance between Vera & Mick. Vera's quirky and funny remarks were entertaining.

I was engrossed with the story from the beginning and couldn't put it down. The ending was surprising with lots of twists. Highly recommended.

I received a complimentary copy and voluntarily choose to review it.
