Never Say Spy by Diane Henders


Never Say Spy by Diane Henders

Book 1 of the NEVER SAY SPY series

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 tranquillity 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.

-Spicy suspense served hard-boiled-

Never Say Spy

I enjoyed this story so much! I loved the protagonist and all of the characters were so real. It had an interesting plot, was so entertaining and funny in the midst of all the suspense. Could not put it down! Stopped only when my eyes closed. Gotta read the next! Thanks for a great read.


I love that the main character is a woman around 50 years old. It was hard to put this novel down. Spies, guns, bad guys and a little romance in the perfect combination. Can't wait to read the next book.

Drew me...I'm hooked!

The story started slow and took a while to grab me but once I was in I was caught. That feeling has been justified as I've been pulled in even tighter with books 2 and 3 (getting ready to buy #4 as soon as I finish this!) the storyline takes a while to develop and you might be tempted to give up, but don't. The characters are well developed and I truly enjoy the protagonist. There are a couple of blips in the story arc where her actions/thought processes are unrealistic for the way the character has been developed (also true in book 2 but not so much in book 3). Ancillary characters are also interesting. Highly recommend!
