Publisher's Summary

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.

Stephanie Plum Fans should look no further!

What made the experience of listening to The Spy Who Kissed Me the most enjoyable?

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.

Would you recommend The Spy Who Kissed Me to your friends? Why or why not?

Yes because it's an entertaining story.

Which scene was your favorite?

When Kelvin falls into Stan's sun roof.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I chuckled a lot throughout it.

Liked the book hated the narrator

I just think that listening to the audio version was a big mistake on my part.
The narrator’s voice is really annoying and that made it difficult for me to enjoy it.
It’s a light, enjoyable book, but the narrator butchered it.
Buy the kindle version.

Ok story annoying narrator

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.

Trying too hard

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.
