About the book

Canada is probably the last place you’d expect to find an American spy. But even idyllic Ottawa has its deadly secrets—and so does CIA operative Talia Reynolds. She can climb through ventilation shafts, blend in at the occasional diplomatic function, even scale buildings (small ones). But there’s one thing she can’t do: tell her aerospace engineer boyfriend Danny about her Top Secret occupation.

It worked for a year, keeping Danny in the dark, keeping him away from danger, keeping her secrets. And then Talia finally catches a hot case: Fyodor Timofeyev. Russian. Aerospace executive. Possible spy?

She can make this work, too—until Danny needs her at the same time her country does. And when Fyodor targets Danny? Suddenly her schedule isn’t the only thing suffering. Now to save her secrets and her country, Talia must sacrifice the man she loves.

Clever, suspenseful, and charged with political intrigue and romance, I, Spy is the perfect combination for a fun and captivating read!

Michelle Davidson Argyle, author of Monarch



If you’re looking for a book filled with suspense, plot twists that leave you guessing and humor to ease the tension, I highly recommend I, Spy. I was on the edge of my seat in anticipation from the start, and putting it down to do anything else was the ultimate challenge.

Deana Barnhart, author



Nonstop action, a sigh-worthy romance, and plenty of laugh-out-loud moments all laced through with a spine-tingling mystery that will keep you turning the pages at lightning speed.

Emily Gray Clawson, author of A Way Back to You



Fall in love with the unique, snarky and quick-witted Talia as she goes you the low down on what it’s really like to be a CIA operative in I, Spy by Jordan McCollum.

Jump into this fun-filled spy adventure as Talia battles for balance between life as a spy and what a normal twenty-something girl should experience. Will Danny, the man she loves, be able to handle the truth about the girl he has fallen in love with and embrace her secret-filled life?

You’ll love this fast-paced, quick-witted, and enjoyable read to the last word.

Cindy M. Hogan, author of Watched



I love how Jordan McCollum blends the best of both Canada and the U.S. in her debut novel. With plenty of polite humor, cloak and dagger mystery and fun romance, there are great characters from both sides of the border, and a case that had me turning pages quicker than I could say, “poutine.” This Canadian author gives I, Spy two thumbs up!

Julie Coulter Bellon, author of Ashes Ashes



A great blend of humor, romance, and action—you had my interest right from the first page.

I love how upbeat and positive this story left me feeling. . . . I was really pulled into the story, and especially the increasing tension in Talia and Danny’s relationship, which was executed just right.

— Heidi Brockbank, editor, Eschler Editing



Okay, I’ll admit it. I’m completely biased about this book. :) I loved, loved, LOVED the TV show Alias, and this story follows in Sydney Bristow’s footsteps. Like the Alias TV show, I, Spy features a fantastic, likeable spy heroine who’s trying to juggle her personal life with her work life. Talia Reynolds struggles with doing the right thing while under pressure to catch the bad guys.

The edge-of-my-seat undercover operations kept me turning pages, and just when I thought the story would go one way, plot twists sent it down another path. Thrilling, adventurous, and romantic, this book has it all for an Alias fan.

Jami Gold, award-winning author



Jordan McCollum’s debut novel is a delightful combination of mystery, action, and romance. Talia’s CIA training and almost OCD caution feed her quirky humor while exposing her very human fears and insecurities. Add in her boyfriend Danny, and it’s enough to twist your heart.

Donna K. Weaver, author of A Change of Plans
