Spies and Prejudice by Talia Vance

Tuesday, May 28, 2013
Summary: 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.

Review: Spies and Prejudice was a decent read. I really enjoyed the premise of a teen P.I. and I found the characters very enjoyable. I found all the characters interesting in their own way. There is chemistry between Tanner and Berry is just what I like fighting their feelings and fiery banter. Romance is not the main focus of the story and it moves along without dominating the story. The tie to Pride and Prejudice is obvious at some points but overall the connection is weak at best.
The main character Berry is a great character she is independent and strong-willed, although capable of admitting when she makes a mistake. The one thing I did not like about the story was the mystery it at times seemed to be somewhat convoluted and a little bit scattered. However, the characters were enjoyable and I hope that the author is making this into a series because I would love to read more about Berry, Tanner, Mary Chris, Ryan, and Jason.
