Publisher's Summary

…If a kickass middle-aged bookkeeper got sucked into a spy's life…
Despite her penchant for weapons and ripe language, Aydan Kelly's resumé reads 'bookkeeper', not 'badass'. She's leaving the city to fulfill her dream of rural tranquility when she gets carjacked by a man who shouldn't exist.
When RCMP officer John Kane kills her would-be abductor, Aydan thinks her troubles are over. But Kane's investigation implicates her in an international espionage plot, and criminal charges become the least of her worries when she's targeted by the very spies Kane suspects her of aiding.
Pity her enemies. Because nobody's tougher than a middle-aged woman who wants her dream back.
Contains coarse language, moderate violence, and sexuality. The story can stand alone but will be more enjoyable if read in order.
If Janet Evanovich's quirky humour met Robert Ludlum's taut thrillers, the Never Say Spy series would be their love child: racy, fun, and action-packed!

What would have made Never Say Spy better?

Better narrator. The plot was OK, but the narrator didn't carry off the male characters well. The hero, Kane, came off sounding annoyed with everyone and everything, while Hellhound sounded like he was from the backwoods of Kentucky. Her inflections were out of place also. The main character's sarcastic or flippant remarks fell flat.I spent a lot of time listening to the main character whine about being hungry and demanding to be fed. She also spent a lot of time doing "yoga breathing." Based on what was happening to her, the freaks out seemed inappropriate, while at other times, the fact that she wasn't seemed odd.

I know that there are people who are totally prepared for every eventuality, but between her ubiquitus backpack and waist pouch, she had everything covered from clothes to food, to tools. If she needed a three-sided, hexagon-shaped buber tuber lancing tool, voila! She had one. It's no wonder Kane didn't believe she was a spy.

It's an interesting plot and the author unfolded it well. I'm not sure if I'm willing to force my way through the narrator to listen to more of this series.

Would you be willing to try another book from Diane Henders? Why or why not?

Yes, but only if someone else reads the book.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

She couldn't act. If she'd just read the book without changing her voice for the different characters, it might have been better. In several places, her attempt at being flippant didn't work. I'm not even sure that's what the author intended because it seemed out of place.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The plot was interesting.

I liked this audio book! It may not be for some, due to a brief torture scene (which I fast forwarded through). I found the female protagonist to be strong, smart, and sassy. She also made mistakes which I wanted to scream "Don't do that!" Or "don't go there!". Which tells you that I was completely enthralled by this audio book!

this is a must listen/read

I loved the book and. I read it, so when Diane said the audible version was a available it was a no brainier that I would get it. nothing g is better than curling up with a good book, but this was kinda better someone was reading the book to me, I was able to actually do a few things while still enjoying the book. as well as re-reading the book I'm sure I will listen again. I just hope Diane decides to have a few more read by Michelle as she did it wonderfully.
pause indeed to both ladies for a job well done
