Amaryllis- dramatic. Read a book with high drama, like an Epic romance or a Downton Abbey style romance.

This is book one of a series on Clara Vine, actress and spy. She is in Berlin in 1933 being courted by Nazis for King and Country. Sometimes, a book can seem like it will be a perfect fit and just isn’t. That’s the case here: I love WWII, epic novels and the glamour of old Hollywood/film industry. I’ve been working on this one for months, forcing myself to read a chapter here and a chapter there hoping that it would eventually turn good. It did but it was the last 100 pages of a 400+ page book. I doubt I’ll pick up the others. I did like the romance between Clara and a fellow spy but it was too little too late.
