Book Review - ALICE'S NOTIONS by Tamera Lynn Kraft
Another really terrific World War II romantic suspense--except it's actually set just after the war in a very small fictional town in West Virginia.
Alice Brighton was having to create a new life for herself. Joe had been killed on Battle of the Bulge in the war. She'd moved from New York back to the town she and Joe grew up in and was setting up a fabric and sewing notions shop. She had sponsored, sight unseen, a displaced European war immigrant, to live with her and be her assistant.
There must have been a mistake! They sent her a German woman! Greta, one of the enemy! Alice couldn't send her away at the moment because she'd managed to cripple herself temporarily--just a sprain, but for now she had to have help. Well, as soon as she was on her feet, she'd get rid of this German.
Alice's landlord (Rick Morrison) is a good-looking guy, but he's really a suspicious character. And he doesn't think women should run a business. Great. A German assistant and a guy who might be a war criminal surround her.
Plus, the couple who've always been a mainstay of the community, the Tolivers, are also acting strange. But they have a dreamy nephew who is eager to help with the Barn Quilt Tour she's setting up. Not that she's looking. Alice is still in love with her dead husband.
She begins to wonder who the good guys are and who are the baddies, because obviously, something untoward is going on.
You can help solve this mystery by going to Amazon or Barnes and Noble and getting your copy.
I received a free copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.
