Book Summary:
Hollywood Star Turns Spy

In 1943, movie director Alexander Korda approaches Amelie Hart under the guise of offering the Hollywood star a leading part in his upcoming film. But he actually has a more meaningful role in mind. Amelie’s homeland of Sweden declared neutrality in the war. But with rumors swirling about their quiet partiality to Germany, the U.S. government needs someone unexpected to spy on the Swedish elite. Who better than an “all beauty, no brains” blond starlet who speaks three languages and is subtle enough to fool even Fynn Ristaffason—a millionaire entrepreneur and shipping magnate suspected of funneling funds and products to the Nazis.

Tasked to discover the truth and report her findings, Amelie searches for evidence that Sweden isn’t as neutral as it claims. Satisfying her suspicion of Fynn being a Nazi sympathizer comes with the dangerous price of spending lots of time with the man and his magnetic charm.

Amelie must rely on her smarts in addition to her acting skills to survive a world of deadly spies and counterspies.
