Waiting on Wednesday (39): Spies and Prejudice

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. Visit Breaking The Spine to see more entries!

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
Spies and Prejudice by Talia Vance 
Release Date: June 11th 2013 by Egmont
 Format: Hardcover

Goodreads Summary:
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.
Reasons I want to read & own this book: 
1. It's a retelling of Pride & Prejudice. I love retellings based on Pride & Prejudice. That dynamic of characters who are not supposed to like each other, but find themselves doing so anyway, is always fun to read about.
2. Spies. I love espionage stories either on film or books. I have not read a young adult spy story yet so I can't wait to see the mystery that will unravel in this story. 

What do you guys think? :)


  1. Yes! I love your pick, Jennifer! I'm super excited for this book too. Pride and Prejudice is one of my favorite books ever and like you, I love spies! Plus, the cover is so pretty! :)
