Summary

Canada's the last place you'd expect to find an American spy, but CIA operative Talia Reynolds has problems piling up higher than a Canadian snowbank. When Elliott Monteith, her ridiculously handsome new coworker, shows up (and shows her up), Talia decides it's game on. She'll be the first to track down a dangerous counter-spy, and she'll give Elliott an unforgettable souvenir of his time in Ottawa: some humble pie.

Her plans don't work as well as she expects, though. Elliott's over-the-top flirting dredges up too many painful memories for Talia and undermines the confidence she's worked hard to regain. To do her job and keep her integrity intact, she'll have to keep her personal feelings at bay. Now Talia must find a way to work alongside Elliott—and maybe even trust him—to outsmart the enemy.

My Review

I have fallen in love with Jordan McCollum's Spy Another Day series! When I found out that she had written a novella that preceded the first book when Elliott and Talia first meet I knew I had to read it. I was not disappointed.

My favorite thing about Spy Noon was the chemistry and quips passed back and forth between Talia and Elliott. The lines and the jabs and the teasing. They cracked me up at the same time I was falling for Elliott's charm. How could I not? I could totally go for Elliott, but we find out later that he's not exactly in the situation you would think. Then there is Talia's signature voice. She has this sarcasm that is ever present, even in stressful situations, and I love it! They definitely make a good team.

I also liked that the mission was all wrapped up in this novella. It didn't feel rushed, even though it is a shorter book. It wasn't as big of a mission as the other books contain, so that's why it worked. I did think that the torturing part wasn't serious enough. I couldn't see them in the light they wanted to be seen in, so that wasn't believable enough, but other than that, I felt like this could be a regular surveillance mission. 

I think this might be one of my favorites of the series. The dialogue between Talia and Elliott was just great! The ending set the tone for I, Spy and helped me understand the relationship between the two of them better. It also gave me some insight into Talia's background and why she feels as she does about relationships and her work. If you enjoy this series or spy books in general, then I would definitely recommend picking this up! If you haven't started this series yet, definitely start here!
