Haunting Melody

(2011)
A novel by

 
An antique musical doll, cranberry-stained sheet music and the machinations of an eccentric, stupidly-short witch with a fondness for Elvis throw Melody Flynn through time to the 1919 Ziegfeld Follies. Mel soon finds herself dealing with jealous chorus girls while trying to learn songs and dances created nearly 100 years before she was born.
That's the easy part. When she begins a race to track down missing chorines, she's suddenly battling fanatic Egyptian cultists, murderous bordello madams - and her growing feelings for stagehand Briley McShan.

Author Flo Fitzpatrick combines a fascinating look at New York and the world of the theater almost a century ago with some fun mystery and a charming romance. The theater scenes ring true, as do Fitzpatrick's look into the occult of time. The romance itself is charming, with the injured Briley gradually learning to trust again, while Melody deals with the certainty that eventually she will leave Briley - probably just when he'd come to believe she wouldn't. After all, time travel is a sneaky thing. Fitzpatrick fills her story with fascinating secondary characters and a look at white slavery in the early 1900s. I'm happy to recommend this well-written and compelling novel. Rob Preece Books for a Buck (2007)
