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.

Spies and Prejudice was a bit of a disappointment. It's a retelling of Pride and Prejudice and Lizzy is now Berry and Mr. Darcy is now Tanner. I liked Berry and Tanner's arguments and seeing Berry's growth. She learned something about herself in the end and that was good. There was an unanswered question though: Who was Drew really working for? I wish that question got answered. I also didn't like how Berry was too trusting of people. Spies and Prejudice is a good story to pass time with but otherwise, it was okay.
