Reviews of Spy for a Spy

Spy for a Spy coverFrom book reviewers and bloggers

McCollum intricately layers Talia’s complex personality by developing her into outrageously paranoid and protective, but vulnerable when it comes to Danny. Each chapter is a window into a complicated woman’s life. . . .

The paradox between Talia’s life as a spy and planning her upcoming nuptials is not only entertaining, but it reveals the cracks in her identity and how they’re filled by the promise of spending her entire future, eternity and all, with Danny. . . .

McCollum has given her loyal readers a more mature Talia to love and try to understand. She’s complicated, but she’s real and learns to grapple with her problems rather than avoid them. But above all, she’s a role model for young Mormon readers: she doesn’t lower her morals or standards, and she sticks up for herself and for the people she loves.

The first half of this story was enjoyable, but the second was great and basically “hold-onto-your-seat crazy! I couldn’t put it down. Just like in the first book I didn’t know what was going to happen and when. I just knew it was going to be dangerous and crazy and hoped that everyone, at least the good guys, would make it out alive.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this! I would definitely read it again and I am highly anticipating the next book that Jordan McCollum writes! If you enjoy action-adventure, suspense, or books about characters who are spies and some romance, then I would definitely recommend this.

***** (FANtastic Book that I LOVED)

Same great voice. Awesome action and awesome Talia. . . . What I love about these books is the way the tension is built line upon line. Sheesh, the first person narrative is so riveting. I had no problem reading this book in a day and a half, it kept me so close to the page. Go. Read. Now.

Caught between old boss/new boss, old boyfriend/new boyfriend, and old partner/no partner, Talia finds herself lying and spying and wondering…

Where is the line between Talia the spy, and Talia the person?

And wait until you read who comes in to ‘save the day.’

Spy for a Spy had me so absorbed, flying through the book. I had to keep telling myself to slow it down, take it easy. I just couldn’t help it. I felt like I was going crazy for half the book. Like Talia. The first person narrative really works for this book. It’s so easy to get caught up in her head. . . .

I am a Jordan McCollum fan and I love this book series. I can’t wait for the next book.
