Hollywood Star Turns Spy
In 1943, Movie producer Henrik Zoltan approaches Amelie Blake under the guise of offering the Hollywood star a leading part in his upcoming film, but he has a more meaningful role in mind. Amelie’s homeland of Sweden declared neutrality in the war, but Stockholm has become the ‘Casablanca of the North.’ When top-secret atomic research goes missing in Sweden, the Allied forces scramble to recover the files before they fall into Nazi hands.

The United States Office of Strategic Services (OSS) needs someone who’s subtle enough to spy on the Swedish elite without triggering suspicion. Who better than the “all beauty, no brains” Scandinavian starlet? Fluent in three languages and possessing a brilliant memory, Amelie loathes being labeled witless but uses the misconception as her disguise. She’s tasked with searching for the crucial files, but Finn Ristaffason keeps getting in her way. Is the charming shipping magnate after the missing research? Or does he have other reasons for showing up at her every turn?

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

    Thrilling Romantic Suspense!

    Published by Connie Porter Saunders on Sep 02, 2023

    World War II. A Hollywood actress. Suspected spy activity. I've often read that famous actress Greta Garbo was a spy in WWII, so I was immediately drawn into this story of Amelie Blake, a young Swedish actress who decides to aid the war effort by becoming a spy. She is beautiful, brave, and dedicated to protecting freedom, but there are so many obstacles thrown into her path. The Starlet Spy is set in both Hollywood and Sweden during the years 1943-1945, and it alternates between the glamour of making movies and the danger involved in working undercover during WWII. Author Rachel Scott McDaniel kept me guessing with the twists, turns, and questions. Does the one man that Amelie thinks she can trust actually have ulterior motives? If you're looking for romance, suspense, and heart-pounding adventure, grab a copy of The Starlet Spy. It's a great addition to the Heroines of WWII series. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review. These are my own thoughts.

    The Starlet Spy

    Published by @DevotedToHope on Jul 02, 2023

    The Starlet Spy easily earns a strong five-star rating! I highly recommend this spectacular book to everyone who enjoys reading historical romance, historical fiction, or Christian fiction. The novel includes many genuine facts as well as entertaining details -- and storytelling at its finest. Rachel Scott McDaniel includes historically accurate facts in her novels. The Starlet Spy contains the most of any of her novels. I am so glad she does this -- the result is a powerfully wonderful story. From the stunning cover to the one-of-a-kind World War 2 characters to the multiple country settings to the Christian faith content, The Starlet Spy is a must read. Adventure, espionage, mystery, suspense, bravery, courage, humor, tenderness, love, and romance await readers from the first page to the last. A few Scriptural truths are shared including the reminder that we should not focus on our problems but instead look up to our Creator and King. If God can ignite the heavens with aurora borealis, we can trust Him to light the darkness around us and to guide us on the straight and narrow path. I received an eARC of The Starlet Spy from NetGalley, Rachel Scott McDaniel, and Barbour Fiction. I was not required to write a positive review or paid to do so. The words above are my honest review of this terrific book.
