Overview

Games can be deadly.

Eighteen-year-old Savvy Bent expects fireworks on her first date with Malcolm - in Paris! Except over a picnic of sparkling cider and strawberry tarts, a sniper shoots at them.

That’s only the beginning. From the top of the Eiffel Tower to the depths of the catacombs, Savvy must sneak, deceive, and spy to save her family and friends and figure out whether Malcolm is one of the bad guys before she completely falls for him.

"Move over Gallagher Girls - there's a new spy in town! A Spy Like Me is a fast paced, high energy ride through Paris that left me almost as breathless as Pauling's hot hero. Super fun beginning, great story, and an ending that didn't disappoint!" Gemma Halliday - NYT best selling author of Spying in High Heels

"Oh. My. Holy. Spy. Pants. A Spy Like Me is the most fun we've had in Paris since Anna and the French Kiss. The perfect mix of romance, mystery and danger, A Spy Like Me has more twists and turns than a Paris arrondissement. Lisa and Laura Roecker - author of The Liar Society Series

    A Spy Like Me is a very fun novel to read!! I loved the mystery

    A Spy Like Me is a very fun novel to read!! I loved the mystery and suspense of it all - Laura Pauling kept me guessing throughout! I was shocked in the end. I had guessed one outcome, and was given another!!! Way to go!!

    I really enjoyed the setting of Paris. I think it added so much to the mystery and intrigue of the story. So many locations within Paris that I don't think could have been equaled anywhere else.

    Savvy is quite a character! She is so spunky and strong for a teenager. I found her to be so believable - often questioning herself and her situation - very much like an every-day teenager!! However, she was born to be a spy - following in the steps of her parents - I think that makes her stand out. Malcolm, her side-kick, truly kept me on edge throughout the story. I was not sure how to feel about him. One moment I was cheering him and Savvy on, and the next, I hated him. Their relationship was a huge roller coaster!!

    I have not read too many spy novels, but I can say that I really enjoyed this one. Laura Pauling left me wanting to read more about Savvy and Malcolm. And, I think she left the story in a place that there is room for more adventures from the pair.

    With the backdrop of Paris, Savvy Bent must turn into a spy, something she despises, to find out why her bff Aimee disappeared, why Malcolm, her hot crush, is so secretive and why her type-A mom left without a word. This book was a fun read, full of mystery and pastries and family history gone awry. A Dan Brown story for teens who like their mysteries with a chocolate croissant and a latte. Looking forward to the next book in the series to learn more about Savvy!

    Loved this book. I finished it in two days, which is hard to do

    Loved this book. I finished it in two days, which is hard to do with two toddlers and an out-of-town husband. Engaging story line, memorable characters. A consistently quirky, snarky voice. Laura is a master of misdirection as she keeps the reader guessing about who's good and bad and what everyone is really up to. Completely unpredictable--right up to the end, I wasn't sure how it would all turn up. Overall, a fabulous read. Thank you, Laura! Can't wait for book 2!

    You can't help but root for Savvy, a reluctant spy, who's trying

    You can't help but root for Savvy, a reluctant spy, who's trying to unravel the mystery that surrounds her mother's disappearance, plus there's that cute boy, Malcolm, who is hiding something, too!

    A Spy Like me is a nice take on the spy genre, fun and entertaining with twists and turns that keep the pages turning. If you're a fan of Ally Carter's Gallagher Girl series, then you'll like this.
