Isabel 'Stan' Stanley's mother has been hoping a man would fall in Stan's lap. But when a handsome spy dives through the sunroof of her car in a hail of bullets, Stan's sure this wasn't what momma had in mind.
Bad guys beware. Stan's packing a glue gun and she knows how to use it. Sort of.

"Pauline Baird Jones' debut contemporary, [The Spy Who Kissed Me] is a delightful madcap romp that will leave readers eagerly anticipating future works by this amazing new talent." (Patricia Rouse, columnist, Romantic Times)
I just finished listening to this audiobook and I really enjoyed it! It reminds me of the earlier Stephanie Plum books, which I like to refer to as "Brain Candy". It is written in the first person and you can't help but get into the story right away. I found myself chuckling to myself in the car. So if you're a fan of Stephanie Plum books and just can't wait for Janet to finish the next one, you should really give Stan Stanley a try! You won't be disappointed.
P.S. I liked the narration too - it moved quickly without long exaggerated pauses that occur too often in other audio books.
Yes because it's an entertaining story.
When Kelvin falls into Stan's sun roof.
I chuckled a lot throughout it.
The plot and story was ok. The voice of the narrator really got on my nerves. I'm going to avoid any more books by this narrator if I can.
Use books for escape- typically avoid nonfiction. Enjoy action-romance, espionage/military, sci-fi. Skilled writing is most important.
The writer is simply trying to hard to be funny - it just doesn't work. Good writers focus on plot and characters, letting humor work its way in naturally. The reader is in the wrong line of work - I know that's harsh, but, man, she is baaad.
Don't waste your credit.
