Spy By Night

A review copy was provided
Release Date: November 2014
Publisher: Durham Crest Books
Genre: Romance

I love all things spy and espionage so of course I LOVE this series!
It gives you suspense and romance and drama and humor all in the right proportions!

This book veers a little from the normal spy book and gives you more of an in-depth look into the personal life of the spy while they are still trying to stake-out the bad guys.

It lets you see the balancing act a spy must walk at all times in trying to be honest, yet not let out any secrets that might ultimately hurt themselves or the one they are telling...VERY INTRIGUING!

CIA operative Talia Reynolds works in Canada...

She holds down her CIA job AND her cover job...which leaves little time for anything else.

After watching most of her families' marriages fall apart the last thing Talia wants to do is fall in love.

But when she sees Danny her heart takes its own path.

Danny Fluker is an aerospace engineer (rocket scientist :) and is in Canada to start over without all the baggage from his mother or his ex-fiancé and he too has no romantic notions for the future.

But then he sees Talia and is unexpectedly drawn to her...

FUN SCENES AWAIT YOU as you watch Talia and Danny try to date, try to break-up, try to be friends, try to date others, try to date again.

You also have Talia breaking off dates because she has to "work" and some suspenseful moments when her two lives try to cross paths...YOU WILL LOVE THIS!

Each has secrets they are keeping and each ends up telling more than they ever have before.

Can this friendship blossom into something more OR will each keep their hearts securely locked away?

And can Talia keep her mind on the case of trying to find the "Russian spymaster" without causing an "international catastrophe" OR will this mean "death to more than just her budding relationship?"

About the Author
An award-winning author, Jordan McCollum can’t resist a story where good defeats evil and true love conquers all. My first novels, I, Spy and Spy for a Spy, were both 2013 Whitney Award Finalists. Two prequel novellas, Spy Noon and Mr. Nice Spy, are also available. In 2014, I also published the last prequel, a full-length novel called Spy by Night, and the last novel in the series, Tomorrow We Spy. Keep up with my (insane!) publication schedule by subscribing to my newsletter.

In addition to fiction, I love teaching and writing about writing. I have nonfiction books out on Character Arcs and Character Sympathy. At writers conferences, I’ve taught (packed, much to my surprise) classes on character arcs, gesture crutches, structural self-editing and more. In 2015, I’m offering online writing courses through my site, so be sure to join my newsletter to hear about them before they fill up! Or if you’d rather just improve your writing craft with in-depth tips, you can subscribe to my blog.

From 2011 to 2014, I served as the Education Director for Authors Incognito, an online writers’ community for attendees of the LDStorymakers writing conference. In this position, I coordinated monthly writing classes for our over 400 members, as well as occasional workshops and insane-goal-achieving drives. I have also taught classes on point of view, revision and plotting. From May to August of 2013, I was also acting Executive Director.

Some of my previous manuscripts have won first place in the 2010 and 2011LDStorymakers Conference First chapter contests, mystery/suspense category, and also have been named a finalist in the first round of the 2011 Sandy Contest from Crested Butte Writers, mystery/suspense/thriller category.

In my day job, I coerce people to do things they don’t want to, elicit information and generally manipulate the people I love most—I’m a mom. I was born and raised in Durham, North Carolina. A graduate of Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, I earned a Bachelor’s in American Studies and Linguistics with minors in Spanish and English. (It’s not as hard as it sounds. ) When I catch a spare minute amidst being a wife, mother and writer, my hobbies include reading, blogging, knitting, and mysteries. I have three four kids, play three instruments and know three languages, and hope to add more to all of those counts—eventually. (Well . . . we’ll see about more kids.)
