Who Is Vera Kelly?
Who Is Vera Kelly? | Rosalie Knecht
New York City, 1962. Vera Kelly is struggling to make rent and blend into the underground gay scene in Greenwich Village. She's working night shifts at a radio station when her quick wits, sharp tongue, and technical skills get her noticed by a recruiter for the CIA. Next thing she knows she's in Argentina, tasked with wiretapping a congressman and infiltrating a group of student activists in Buenos Aires. As Vera becomes more and more enmeshed with the young radicals, the fragile local government begins to split at the seams.When a betrayal leaves her stranded in the wake of a coup, Vera learns the Cold War makes for strange and unexpected bedfellows, and she's forced to take extreme measures to save herself. An exhilarating page turner and perceptive coming-of-age story, Who Is Vera Kelly? introduces an original, wry and whip-smart female spy for the twenty-first century.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I have no idea when or why this got put on my tbr list, and didn‘t have any expectations going in, but I ended up really enjoying it!
Medium-paced and showing Vera‘s current life as a CIA spy in Argentina paired with flashbacks to her child/young adulthood, this was a fun spy read without being over the top. I didn‘t realize it was the first in a series, but I‘m definitely planning to read the other books!

DivineDiana It was a fun read, and I too have no idea how it got on my TBR. 🤷🏼‍♀️ Blame it on Litsy! 😂 4mo

It‘s difficult trying to define who you are as a young adult. It‘s exceptionally more difficult when you‘re doing it while working for the CIA undermining some radical activists during a political coup in Argentina during the Cold War.

A slowish start & very twisty. Vera really can‘t catch a break. She‘s a clever & adaptable narrator, but the situation really doesn‘t make her too likable, good thing the flashbacks made me feel for her. 🌕🌕🌕🌗🌑

sarahbellum I felt very similarly about Vera. Not super likable, but I could empathize with some of her motives and understand the different facets of her personality. Glad you read it with me this month! 6mo

This wasn‘t exactly cozy and it wasn‘t exactly a mystery. I‘d call it a light espionage character study?

I wasn‘t blown away, but I really enjoyed the descriptions of Argentina and found Vera to be a compelling MC. I felt like this was a good set up for the series, giving lots of background info on and insight into Vera. Has anyone read books 2 and 3?

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts, @ozma.of.oz and @Mollyanna ! #diversecozy

Look at me reading a spy novel!

Vera is many things - but a survivor most of all - she changes and adapts to whatever misfortune has come her way - which eventually sees her in Buenos Aires, pretending to be a student while actually working for the CIA - cue a military coup and no longer being able to trust anyone around her - she has to work out how to get out of the country.

While living in Greenwich Village during the 1960‘s, and struggling to pay her rent,a young woman is recruited by the CIA. Eventually, she is sent to Buenos Aires in anticipation of a coup. The Argentinian story is told with flashbacks to her life in Maryland, growing up and accepting her sexuality. I sympathized with the character of Vera, and could feel the panic of trying to escape from a hostile country.

“With women, I always felt like we were the first two people to ever do what we were doing, that we were inventing it, that we decided in each transaction who we were.” Vera Kelly invents herself as a spy working for the CIA in 1960s Argentina, while keeping her lesbian self deeply secret. A suspenseful, thoughtful #audiobook read by Elisabeth Rodgers. #LGBTQ

I pretended I was like the great ladies of the nineteenth century who sent each other genteel letters when they were apart about how desperately they missed each other. When we read those letters in history classes, or came across that kind of talk in books, our teachers would explain that what read like passion was just the natural affinity of women for each other and there was nothing out of the way about it at all.

I may have went a little overboard at Barnes and Noble (online). I have no regrets and only spent $40 of my own money. The rest were gift cards.

Now that I justified my purchase 😂 (not that I need to), I‘m so excited to read all of these books! I tried to be diverse when buying and not buy all white women. I kind of succeeded 🤷🏻‍♀️ I was just sick of not having new books and my library not having anything. So now I have plenty

This was a great little read that I heard about from @ReadingEnvy and a nice change after being immersed in a long classic. In one timeline Vera is a young American spy in Argentina in 1967. In the other we get glimpses of her past as a troubled teen and how she ended up in such a place. It‘s simply told but really compelling. I loved the 60s setting with its low fi tech and learnt a bit more about Argentina. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I enjoyed this more than I expected to. It‘s a book that slowly sucks you into its web, and before you know it, you‘re hooked and can‘t put it down. 😍 Told in alternating chapters of Vera‘s current experiences in Argentina as a CIA surveillance tech and her personal life 10 years earlier, it takes a while to see how her teen years led her to where she is in the book‘s present, but I think it‘s important to know her backstory. 4 1/2 stars.

Loved, loved this book about a fictional female spy in Argentina at the height of the Cold War. The chapters alternate between her time as “Anne” in Argentina, planting bugs and listening in on dissidents, and her life in Maryland and New York as Vera that leads her to the CIA. 4.5⭐️

Vera is a young spy in Argentina. Book jumps back and forth between present and her past that leads to her working for the CIA. It was an interesting character study and portrayal of what daily life as a spy is like but there was nothing particularly compelling. ⭐️⭐️⭐️. Picture at our local library where I finished listening to this one.

A story about a woman spy during 1960s in Argentina. I liked the historical aspects of this book, aka the political intrigue of Argentina. I do appreciate the attempts at characterization, the set up shifts between the events of her mission and her childhood to paint an image of Vera. But the plot was sort of anti climatic and while good elements are there I didn‘t find that it came together as well as I would hope.

Cinfhen It‘s a great cover, though! 4y

The cover blurb promised "[t]he twisty, literary, woman-driven spy novel you've always wanted to read. Dazzling." I'd say it fell *way* short. While I have the ARC, I read w/ears. Maybe the narrator dulled it down? I wasn't dazzled. Story jumps around from Vera's juvenile delinquent home for girls years to her CIA assignment in Argentina in the early 60s. That's neither here nor there in terms of my satisfaction. I was expecting more excitement.

I enjoyed the premise of this -- young female spy sent to Argentina during the late 1960's to do electronic surveillance. The setting and character' s viewpoint were unique and kept me reading even though the pacing was slower than you typically see in a soy novel.
