Waiting on Wednesday (26)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that allows bloggers to share which books we are most anticipating.
This week, I am waiting on Spies and Prejudice by Talia Vance (6/11/13):

Description on Goodreads:
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.
I love Jane Austen! And I love spy novels. What a great combination! It’s not my favorite cover. Why is “Spies” written so large? Though, it does have this sort of old, detective, noir vibe going for it. It looks like an old detective noir movie mixed with the models of the Pretty Little Liars series, and I’m all for that combo! The story sounds adorable. I need more YA detective main characters in my life; I just do. And I loved the last YA Austen retelling I read so much that it made my top ten books of 2012! I have high hopes for this one. What are you waiting on this week?
