Book #Giveaway: The Blonde by Anna Godbersen

Tuesday, May 13, 2014 Posted by Dina N

Book Description
At the height of the cold war, Marilyn Monroe was the most famous woman in the world, but what if she was also a secret soviet spy?

In 1948, a young, unknown Norma Jeane Baker meets a mysterious man in Los Angeles who transforms her into Marilyn Monroe the star. Twelve years later, he comes back for his repayment, and Marilyn is given her first assignment from the KGB: Uncover something about JFK that no one else knows.

But a simple job turns complicated when Marilyn falls in love with the bright young president, and learns of plans to assassinate Kennedy. More than anything, Marilyn wants to escape her Soviet handlers and save her love -- and herself. Desperate, ruthless, and brilliant, what she does next will leave readers reeling.

From New York Times bestselling author Anna Godbersen comes a whip-smart reimagining of the life of Marilyn Monroe, set in a world of silver screen glamour and political intrigue. At once a crackling portrayal of Old Hollywood, an intimate portrait of the larger-than-life star, and a cat-and-mouse thriller, The Blonde is history rewritten as it could have -- and might have -- been.

    I just started a series that features tresses of a different color in the titles: titian. The first installment is AN UNIDENTIFIED REDHEAD. I'd hoped to at least start the second book over the holiday weekend but had very little free time to read.

    There are too many books on my reading list! Lots of non-fiction running and fitness books and a few novels sitting here. Outlander is waiting for me to get back to it.
