Spies and Predjudice - Review

Fields’ Rule #1: Don’t fall for the enemy.

Berry Fields is not looking for a boyfriend. She’s busy trailing cheaters and liars in her job as a private investigator, collecting evidence of the affairs she’s sure all men commit. And thanks to a pepper spray incident during an eighth grade game of spin the bottle, the guys at her school are not exactly lining up to date her, either. 

So when arrogant—and gorgeous—Tanner Halston rolls into town and calls her “nothing amazing,” it’s no loss for Berry. She’ll forget him in no time. She’s more concerned with the questions surfacing about her mother’s death. 

But why does Tanner seem to pop up everywhere in her investigation, always getting in her way? Is he trying to stop her from discovering the truth, or protecting her from an unknown threat? And why can’t Berry remember to hate him when he looks into her eyes?

With a playful nod to Jane Austen, Spies and Prejudice will captivate readers as love and espionage collide.

My Review -

Thank you to Netgalley for providing me with an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. 

Reading the blurb of this book it was like nothing I had heard before and I was instantly intrigued and I had to read it, as soon as it arrived in my inbox I knew I had to get it on my kindle as soon as possible I just knew I had to consume it.

This was full of everything I needed - Mystery, Romance and Comedy. This is the perfect summer read! Just sit in your garden with a nice cocktail and let the words flow because you will not want them to end.

Berry Fields (Hell Yes I love this name! a great nod to the Beatles) works for her father as a private investigator (think a little bit of Nancy Drew / Veronica Mars) her main job is to hunt down cheaters and liars and she is damn good at what she does, after all who would suspect the high school student? Berry has an amazing best friend Mary Chris Moss (lol I actually loved this name as well Talia I bow down to your literally naming skills) Mary is also the 'sidekick' and expert spy gear maker.

Every Story needs 'the' guy and in this story it is - Tanner Halston. First impression - asshat. Literally especially as Berry overhears him saying she is nothing amazing, Can you say mean?!? But even after saying this he doesn't seem to want to leave Berry alone. Could it be that he actually likes her? Or is there some kind of motive behind his actions?

This is a story all about Berry using what she knows to try and find out what really happened to her mother as there is defiantly more than meets the eye - but could finding out the truth risk her life and and those closest to her?

I loved this book, it was nice and light and just an easy read that I was able to get lost in and forget about the world for a few hours. I cannot wait to read more from this author as I adore her writing style and ideas. 

4/5
