Content descriptions

General Note: "Originally published as a trade paperback in Australia and New Zealand in 2022 by Hachette"--Title page verso.
Summary, etc.: "Alix St. Pierre. An unforgettable name for an unforgettable woman. She grew up surrounded by Hollywood glamor, but, as an orphan, never truly felt part of that world. In 1943, with WWII raging and men headed overseas to fight, she lands a publicity job to recruit women into the workforce. Her skills-persuasion, daring, quick-witted under pressure-catch the attention of the U.S. government and she finds herself with an even bigger assignment: sent to Switzerland as a spy. Soon Alix is on the precipice of something big, very big. But how far can she trust her German informant...? After an Allied victory that didn't come nearly soon enough, Alix moves to Paris, ready to immerse herself in a new position as director of publicity for the yet-to-be-launched House of Dior. In the glamorous halls of the French fashion house, she can nearly forget everything she lost and the dangerous secret she carries. But when a figure from the war reappears and threatens to destroy her future, Alix realizes that only she can right the wrongs of the past...and finally find justice"--

    Alix has been tasked with promoting the as-yet-unknown Christian Dior's upcoming collection in Paris, a dream opportunity. Her excitement is overshadowed when news from the Nuremberg trials brings back memories of her time in OSS and a mission gone wrong in northern Italy. She's as determined to uncover the secrets that haunt her as she is to shine in her new role, and when she crosses paths with news editor Anthony March, she finds that he's instrumental in both pursuits, if she can trust him. Despite their growing attraction, Alix has seen enough spurned wives and mistresses to know that falling in love might mean giving up on the future she's trying to build. In both Alix and Anthony's perspectives, Lester captures the delicate balance between trust and self-preservation. With true-life characters, detailed descriptions, and a strong sense of place, she celebrates the glamour of Dior without shying away from the horrors endured by Italian partisans during Nazi occupation. For readers who enjoyed Code Name Hélène, by Ariel Lawhon (2020), or Jennifer Chiaverini's Resistance Women (2019). Copyright 2022 Booklist Reviews.
