Never Say Spy – Diane Henders

PERMAFREE first-in-series thriller

…If a kickass middle-aged bookkeeper got sucked into a spy’s life…

Despite her fondness for weapons and ripe language, middle-aged Aydan Kelly’s résumé reads ‘bookkeeper’, not ‘badass’. She’s leaving the city to fulfill her dream of country living when she gets carjacked by a man who shouldn’t exist.

When RCMP officer John Kane kills her attacker, Aydan hopes her troubles are over. But Kane’s investigation implicates her in a techno-espionage plot, and criminal charges become the least of her worries when she finds herself in the crosshairs of the same dangerous group Kane suspects her of aiding.

Armed with only her analytical mind, a warped sense of humour, and a penchant for profanity, Aydan faces off against international spies and an RCMP officer who’s not what he seems.

Pity her enemies. Because nobody’s tougher than a middle-aged woman who wants her dream back.

Contains coarse language, consensual sex, and moderate violence including threat (but not completion) of sexual violence. The story can stand alone but will be more enjoyable if the series is read in order
