Spies Never Quit by M Taylor Christensen

If the only way to save her mother is to act like a spy, Mari can act like a spy.


After her mother is abducted, Mari Sandoval breaks into her mother’s research lab in an ill-advised attempt to appease the kidnappers. Fortunately she’s thwarted by two spunky sorority girls who offer her a better way to save her mother—become a spy.

In the fast-paced world of undercover agents—where fabulous new clothes, high-tech gadgets, and flirting for secrets are the norm—Mari’s inexperience could ruin everything.

Will she be able to master the art of espionage in time to rescue her mother from the clutches of a maniac? Or will her undercover mission doom them both to imprisonment?

This was such a fun, lighthearted spy novel. The Banana Girls are secret ag….oops, I mean, they are a group of girls who help people. When Mari’s mother, a renowned scientist, goes missing, they are here to help.

I found the girls to be a fun group with all the typical spy gear – great gadgets and cool cars. Their personalities didn’t seem to match with college kids, though. I had to keep reminding myself that they weren’t random high schoolers in the realm of Kim Possible.

The story itself was simple and easy to follow. It had good car chases, espionage, and half hearted denials that everyone is a spy.

The romance angle was a bit farfetched for me, but I understand the reason for it. Though I think it was definitely overdone, who has two attractive guys flirt outrageously within minutes of starting a new job? Weird and suspicious.

This is a lovely novel for anyone who enjoys lighthearted, easy reading with he bonus of secret agents.

Thank you to the author for providing me with a free copy of this novel. I am posting this honest review voluntarily.

Myles Christensen writes cozy suspense with sweet romance under the pen name M. Taylor Christensen.

He loves to write exciting adventures because he loves to read exciting adventures. The hopeless romantic in him will usually sprinkle a teensy bit of romance into his stories. While writing, he listens to music that matches–and sometimes inspires–the storyline.

His mild-mannered alter ego is a product development engineer, university professor, and game inventor. He lives in Utah with his wife and children.
