Spies & Prejudice by Talia Vance

From Egmont:

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 not to Jane Austen, Spies and Prejudice will captivate readers as love and espionage collide.

Spies & Prejudice is Jane Austen meets Veronica Mars, except Berry is fueled by her mother's death, where Veronica was fueled by her BFF's death.  Spies & Prejudice is full of intrigue, fun gadgets, betrayals and misunderstandings.  While some things were blatantly obvious, there were plenty of twists and turns to the story to keep you guessing about how it would end.  I hope this is the start to a series, because it was a lot of fun.

If you enjoy mysteries, Jane Austen and/or Veronica Mars (and who doesn't, these are three awesome things), you will enjoy Spies & Prejudice.  Check out Talia Vance's website for more info:
