    1. 4.25 Stars I really enjoyed this romance While I liked both Piping Her Tune and In the Company of Crocodiles, this is my favorite book by Brown This was a feel good romance that I think romance fans are going to enjoy.Sophie is a political reporter trying to make a name for herself When her boss tells her she is to go undercover, as a housekeeper, to dig up dirt on one of Australia s and America s most beloved actresses, Sophie wants nothing to do with the job Her boss gives her no choice and So [...]


    2. Playing the Spy is the sixth novel by Maggie Brown, but only my second by her I have read her debut I Can t Dance Alone, and was not happy with it I am glad I tried again, because her growth as an author and storyteller is really visible.Playing the Spy is a contemporary romance predominantly set in an exclusive island resort in the Great Barrier Reef Eleanor Godwin 34 is an Australian Oscar winning actress and Hollywood star who must recover her health after a particularly difficult and exhaust [...]


    3. Playing the Spy wasn t what I expected, because once again I failed to read a book blurb and picked up the book because of lots of good reviews, which I obviously didn t read as carefully as I normally do either So the book isn t about a government spy, it s about a reporter who is assigned to spy on a celebrity to get some dirt and sell papers I figured I d finish the story to justify the 1 I immediately planned to rate the book.I consider myself a very tolerant person But I have very little to [...]


    4. This was like a roller coaster up, up, up till chapter 30 and then the ride gets stuck Have you ever read fanfiction that the author marked as complete and during the last few chapters you re scratching your head wondering what s happening I feel like at one point this author thought to herself f ck it, i m bored let s wrap this up and start another fic.I was thoroughly enjoying this story The pacing was great, the main characters had sizzling chemistry and it was all written interesting enough [...]


    5. 3.9 stars I quite liked it Decent characters, good story, an alright supporting cast.It s a bit predictable but that is always the case with these deception or rich girl poor girl stories I wish the characters would be a bit realistic, besides the deception angle they re both 1% of the top 1% smart, beautiful, kind, patient, cooks like a chef, talented and successful in writing, best actress in the world, add another positive trait here They re too idealized for my liking and come off as fairy [...]


    6. Oh, I liked the story and mostly its two main characters Mostly because Eleonore talks like a old lady with her darlings and pompous vocabulary And the chemistry at the end wasn t as good as at the beginning, it made me skip paragraphs to get it over with Interesting ending, could have been exciting, gripping, romancy 3,5 stars


    7. loved this book Lots of fun and some heartache with a really good story line The two women have great chemistry and you just hope they ll end up together Maggie Brown certainly has the knack of making her characters real people and the book is littered with interesting women and men I like that she doesn t just concentrate on the major characters, but gives everyone in the book an excellent profile The setting on the island is magic as well, making this a top read.


    8. It s my first one from the author and I really don t know what to expect At first I was having a hard time connecting with the characters, don t get me wrong I think it was just me.Good thing I didn t gave up It s sweet It s light Yes there s a pushing and pulling and some jealousy I find it cute actually No major drama If you re a fan of Hollywood give this book a try.Btw, I do agree Ellie speaks like an old lady I think she s only 32 Correct me please, if I m wrong.I only remember Sophie s age [...]



    9. I have a love hate relationship with celebrity non celebrity pairings in romance There are times when I read these types of stories, and I like them Then there are times, the majority actually, where I hate them It honestly depends on how the author develops the characters It s like that in any book, but for me, I particularly have to buy into the idea that the celebrity is truly famous Most times, it doesn t work for me when I read these romances And in the case of Playing the Spy, it didn t qu [...]

    12. I actually like this book alot Both main characters are likable and they both definitely have chemistry And i really enjoyed the story Though, i kind of read this book with self conscious because of synopis Sophie was a spy, working for Eleanor And i knew its just a matter of time before the bomb drop and she got discovered and you know what is going to happen next And one thing that didnt quite make sense to me view spoiler Carol, she works for Eleanor, i m not sure how close they were, but the [...]

    14. What s not to like about this book A great story line and very amusing in places Maggie Brown has way with words and creates an in depth novel with a touching love story I was enthralled to the end Famous movie star Eleanor Godwin is very reserved and dislikes the limelight Sophie Marsh is a political reporter who is coerced by her editor to take the position of Eleanor s housekeeper for two months on a tropical Island resort to dig up some scandal about the actress The star is recuperating afte [...]
