Barbara Eppich Struna, author of “The Old Cape House” and “The Old Cape Teapot,” had as much fun writing “The Old Cape Hollywood Secret”, as she did researching the novel. The 1927 Pig & Whistle Pub and Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, located on Hollywood Boulevard, are just a few of the famous landmarks featured in this historical adventure. Struna’s present-day character, Nancy Caldwell, returns in the author’s third novel set in Old Hollywood and on Cape Cod where she leads you on a journey filled with suspense and nostalgia.
