seph (seph-reads) | 16 comments prob written 2010-2015, it's about a girl during world war two, maybe an actress? who becomes a spy and falls in love with a dude who i believe was a reporter, i know it had 2+ books but i only read the first.
it's NOT girl in blue or girl in the blue coat
i think the cover is mostly black with red accents.

Emilie (emilierose) | 139 comments this reminds me a bit of The Girl is Murder. not all of it. the MC isnt a spy or actress, but instead a private eye. But the publishing date is right, it is set during, or maybe right after WWII and the cover image matches.

seph (seph-reads) | 16 comments hm, not that one, i believe the MC was somewhere between 17-22? definitely on the older side of YA

seph (seph-reads) | 16 comments it was YA, and it was not code name verity, it was way less mainstream than that

seph, what skills does she use as a spy? Can you describe some of her missions? Who does she work for? (Spoilers are okay - just give us a clear warning before revealing a spoiler.)

seph (seph-reads) | 16 comments she's a renowned actress and her roles lead her to interact with influential people on the german's side. she has a love interest who is a reporter who she "works for" he helps her know what to say and where to go. it's not a full on spy book, more following the trope of "no one suspects the woman" if you know what i mean.

Is it Black Roses by Jane Thynne? This book is about a British actress who goes to Berlin and meets the wife of a Nazi, I believe. The love interest works for the British intelligence and the book was published around 2013.
