Book:Spies and Prejudice

As you can guess from the title this is not the work like that of Jane Austin's.Really it reminds me more of Alley Carter's books to be honest.and as you all know I love my Alley Carter books.To me this had a lot of that same spirt to it. Its fun, light, a little unbelievable and a nice to start the summer off with. A good book to read when you need a little break from all the heavy stuff out there. And I have to say who does not like a book about a girl who is payed to spy on people. And i really like the humor in this. Mary Chris Moss. It might take a minute to get it. But its very funny. The book is very funny.
So Berry might be a little hard to get used to I found my self really liking her the more I read. And though the book has a little bit of a rough start its gets much better and really comes in to its own the more you read. I found my self getting really in to it. It made me think of some of the crime shows on TV like castle or NCIS a little bit. And as a big fan of those kind of shows reading a book that felt similar was fun.
Something that I found very interesting is that this along with a lot of other books movies and TV shows seem to be on this story kick about the main character solving their parents death. And I was kinda shocked by it in this book. I really did like the book and the story but for me that whole storyline  is getting pretty old pretty quick. And one tiny silly thing (that I just have to point out is) the  problem with is the whole homeschooling thing. Unless you live under a rock most homeschool kids do just fine when they go to school. Being homeschooled does not mean that you are a friendless idiot like so many people believe.I understand it in this book but really writers you ned wise up.
And then somewhere after that the book went a little over the top making it a little hard to believe. Its more of a humor book than a spy book to be honest. But I liked it. A lot. Its a fun read. If you are looking for a real your not going to find it here. This is just a nice fun read. And in a lot of ways that is really refreshing. THis book did not try to be something it was not.
And Some times with reading all of these books its nice just to read something light and fun and get a good kick out of it. which is what this was. And taking it for what it was it was good and I think that people who are a fan of spy humor will really like this.And fine as refreshing as I did.

I was given a copy of the book by the publisher. This did not in anyway effect my review or thoughts on the book. 


  1. I read Talia Vance's other book and didn't really like her writing. I'm glad you liked this one though and I'll have to try reading it. Thanks for the review:)

    1. This is the first of her books that I have read so I do not know if this one is any better. But thanks so much for stopping by!

  2. I'm in the mood for something light and fun, and this book sounds perfect! It's been on my TBR for a long time and sadly I got rejected on Netgalley xD I haven't read any of Ally Carter's books but I really want to. Hopefully some time this year! :3 if you want to read a light espionage I recommend Two Lies and a Spy! I got it via Edelweiss and I really enjoyed it. ;)
