Field's 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 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 concern 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.

        Spies and Prejudice was a quick and easy read but once it’s over, it isn't very memorable. I did enjoy the story, however.

Berry is a kick ass characters and she’s very resourceful. She doesn't take any sort of nonsense from anyone the story behind the pepper spray incident and no boy wanting to date her is the best ever. Talia Vance managed to create a very real character. But my favorite thing about Berry is her name, Berry Fields, hehe. It’s just so unique and strange. I wouldn't have been able to live with it as well as she does.

I did find the storyline to be a bit predictable at times. For example, with Tanner, the love interest, I figured him out right away. However, he was very cute and he did remind me of Mr. Darcy at the beginning, being all indifferent and judgmental towards Berry. And like Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy, they both learn that there is more to other than meets the eye.

Overall, Spies and Prejudice was a cute story and had a nice twist to it. There was nothing new and surprising about the story that I can take with me. However, if you want a really fast and enjoyable read, I'd recommend this one.
