ARC BOOK REVIEW...Spies and Prejudice by Talia Vance

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.
Expected publication: June 11th 2013 by Egmont

Why oh why did I keep thinking that this was going to be something like a "Nancy Drew" kind of book?? Eh Idk. Maybe because it's like a spy/investigative type of book? Hmmm.

ANYWAYS, on to my review. Sorry for being sidetracked!!

"Spies and Prejudice" was just an okay book for me. I think it's because of the genre of it really. I've never read this type of book but decided to take a chance on it to explore other types of book fields. 

The plot, the pacing, and the characters were nicely and craftily put together. Aside from my personal feelings towards the genre, I definitely feel that other readers will appreciate this "slick romantic spy-thriller" as it will keep you on your feet and your interest peaked.

Over all, nice read.

My Rating:

-Overall : 8.5
-Plot : 8
-Writing : 8
-Characters : 8
-Cover : 8
