Description:

A world at war. A beautiful young star. A mission no one expected. 

Paris, 1944

Celebrated singer Genevieve Dumont is both a star and a smokescreen. An unwilling darling of the Nazis, the chanteuse’s position of privilege allows her to go undetected as an ally to the resistance.

When her estranged mother, Lillian de Rocheford, is captured by Nazis, Genevieve knows it won’t be long before the Gestapo succeeds in torturing information out of Lillian that will derail the upcoming allied invasion. The resistance movement is tasked with silencing her by any means necessary—including assassination. But Genevieve refuses to let her mother become yet one more victim of the war. Reuniting with her long-lost sister, she must find a way to navigate the perilous cross-currents of Occupied France undetected—and in time to save Lillian’s life.

My Thoughts: 

This book follows Genevieve Dumont whose a celebrated artist, but her handler is using her celebrity status to sneak things to the resistance.  What she doesn't know her parents are part of the resistance as well.  When she finds out her mother is being held she is determined to save her mother.  Will she save her in time?

I loved this version of World War II I've read a few and this one definitely had a different spin on it. One that pulled you in so you were vested in the story until it's ending.  Waiting to see how it all plays out! Definitely a huge page turner can't wait to see what is next by this thrilling author!
