When the Belle becomes a finalist in the Timeless Wedding Venue contest, Devyn endeavors to secure the prestigious title with hopes to reclaim some of her professional dreams. What she hadn’t planned on was Chase Jones showing up with a mysterious photo from the 1920s.Undercurrent of Secrets Novel Blurb

I had the pleasure of receiving an advanced copy of Rachel Scott McDaniel’s, Undercurrent of Secrets. Get ready to put your detective cap on!
Rachel Scott McDaniel has a God-given gift for interweaving mystery and inspirational romance in her books. This book is no exception. The way she connects the mysterious woman found in a 1920s photograph to modern-day Devyn is super clever and keeps you wanting to read more. Who is this woman? Why are there no records of her? Devyn, a lover of all things vintage, is intrigued by the photo and wants to investigate. It’s just that…
…her new acquaintance and co-amateur sleuth is a handsome charmer. Being that she’s recovering from a humiliating break-up, Devyn proceeds with caution tape around her heart.
I will say: There was a particular scene that made me chuckle. It has to do with the Chicken Dance, but I won’t spoil the surprise!
I appreciate Rachel’s heart for Jesus and her desire to write inspirational historical romance that points people to God. Her books contain uplifting messages and clean dialogue.
If you like historical romance, a good mystery, and content that points to God, check out this book!
