The Collaborator is a well researched and believable tale, based on true events. It has betrayal, secrets and a touch of romance. Even though it's nearly 500 pages I read this book in one day, the story is engrossing. The main problem I had with this book, however, is that I never really connected with any of the characters. I wasn't engaged enough that I never wanted the story to end. Having said that I did like the book and recommend it to lovers of World War 2 fiction, and it's aftermath.
3.5 stars rounded up to 4.
My thanks to NetGalley and Harlequin Australia for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
