Playing the Spy By Maggie Brown


Within the celebrity/commoner trope, leading actress/journalist or writer combo seems to be the most popular. Total wish-fulfilment, especially when combined with the last scene where the actress receives an Oscar and comes out, guns blazing to profess undying love for the commoner. There is actually not much to complain about there.

Eleanor Godwin is a leading actress, almost a shoo-in for her second Oscar. However, her last role took a toll on her and she is prescribed some R&R. She goes to a secluded island in the Great Barrier Reef to keep away from prying eyes, especially the paparazzi. Sophie Marsh, a political journalist is assigned an undercover job: to be Eleanor’s housekeeper/companion during the actress’ stay of two months and then dish the dirt on her. Sophie takes the assignment under duress and voila! There they are. The attraction happens quickly but some amount of slow burn is par for the course since there are doubts about the other’s sexuality.

This one is quite engaging and engrossing. The conflict, when it comes, is believable and justifiable. The resolution and making-up, sweet. Coming out, both Sophie’s to her family and Eleanor’s to well, the world are “Gee! How sweet!” This is a cute, fun read.
