Take 5: Spies Like Us
Ever since reading The Gallagher Girls series by Ally Carter, I am obsessed with spies. In fact, since it is audio book month, I will share with you that I’d Tell You I’d Love You, But Then I’d Have to Kill You is the first audio book the Tween and I listened to in the car. We both loved it and I liked that it was something we could listen to together. Sometimes we sat in our driveway for a few extra minutes to finish a scene. I highly recommend this series, the Tween has gone on to purchase them all. I knew I liked that girl. And then when you are spy obsessed like me, here are a few more spy stories that you might want to read.
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.” – Goodreads
Then Maggie and her parents are sent to New York for her first solo assignment, and all of that changes. She’ll need to attend a private school, avoid the temptation to hack the school’s security system, and befriend one aggravatingly cute Jesse Oliver to gain the essential information she needs to crack the case . . . all while trying not to blow her cover.” – Goodreads
For Meg and her fellow spies are not alone in their pursuit of the murderer who stalks Windsor Castle.” – Goodreads
