A few summers ago I read a series of books written by Doña María Aline Griffith Dexter, Countess of Romanones. The first book in the series is The Spy Wore Red, it’s the true story (with names and some details changed to protect the innocent, of course) of the authoress’ time as an American spy in Spain during WWII. If you are looking for a quick and exciting read I recommend these!

The picture below shows the Countess of Romanoes with Jackie Kennedy at a bullfight when Jackie came on a visit to Spain. (The Countess is the one just to the right of Jackie.) The books mention more than a few famous figures that pass through the Countess’s social circle.
