New Release Review and Giveaway! SPIES, LIES, AND ALLIES by Lisa Brown Roberts

Spies Lies and Allies tour banner



Summers are supposed to be fun, right? Not mine. I’ve got a job at my dad’s company, which is sponsoring a college scholarship competition. I just found out that, in addition to my job assisting the competing interns, I’m supposed to vote for the winner. Totally not what I signed up for.

My boss is running the competition like it’s an episode of Survivor. Then there’s Carlos, who is, well, very distracting––in a good way. But I can’t eventhink about him like that because fraternizing on the job means instant disqualification for the intern involved.

As if that’s not enough, an anonymous informant with insider intel is trying to sabotage my dad’s company on social media…and I’m afraid it’s working.

Much as I’d love to quit, I can’t. Kristoffs Never Quit is our family motto. I just hope there’s more than one survivor by the end of this summer.

OMG, so cute!

I really enjoyed the story of Laurel’s possible summer-job-from-hell. Laurel’s a total daddy’s girl but his workaholic tendencies have had her missing him lately (her older sister being away at college hasn’t helped either) so she’s nagged him relentlessly until he agrees to let her work at his company as an intern assistant for the summer. It’s not quite the job she thinks it’s going to be, but their family motto is “Kristoffs never quit” so she soldiers on.

Her BFF’s family drama, a work mystery, interns that she doesn’t quite fit in with, and adult employees who may or may not have an issue with the boss’s daughter getting a “cushy job” often have Laurel questioning her choices, but her love of Star Wars and her role models (strong female heroines in sci-fi film and fiction) keep her going. Throw in a forbidden maybe-romance and some strong 80s pop-culture vibes, and even though Laurel might be having a trying summer, the reader is definitely having a lot of fun 🙂

Very cute! I can’t wait to see what Ms. Roberts has in store for us next.

Rating: 4 1/2 stars / A-
