    The cover and blurb of this book put me off it for a long time. I'm not much one for the bumbling heroine who the world and everyone in it is determined to make a fool out of every five seconds. I just don't see what so funny about it. Sure, I like to laugh at people too but in small doses and mostly with them. So yeah, I was pretty sure this wouldn't be my cup of tea. Boy, did I kick myself twenty pages in. I loved Sophie. Sure, things often didn't quite go her way but I didn't mind. She wasn't The cover and blurb of this book put me off it for a long time.

Sure, things often didn't quite go her way but I didn't mind. She wasn't the universe's punching bag - she was funny, selfish, sarcastic, jaded and human. I was particularly tickled by the tales of her car and cat, they made me feel connected to her. High time someone shares my taste in cars. I had some qualms, had to suspend my disbelief a little, but overall reading I, Spy? was a highly entertaining experience for me.

    Call me a prude or old-fashioned, but I've never understood a writer's need to use the "F" word...especially in something supposed to be a comedic mystery. I'm also not a fan of sexual descriptors. Granted that is my own bias, which is why I gave it 3 stars. I would have liked to see where this was going, but the constant use of the "F" word and sexual innuendos turned me off. If you don't mind those things and like a light-hearted British read, then you will enjoy this.(less) Call me a prude or old-fashioned, but I've never understood a writer's need to use the "F" word...especially in something supposed to be a comedic mystery.

    A very pleasant, light spy spoof, easy and quick to read. The first-person narration takes us into the mind, heart, and soul of a genuine Ditsy Blonde named Sophie Green, who is of course recruited to be a most unlikely spy, all while working as an airport check-in clerk. The structure and routines of a British international airport are written from experience, and that really helps the story along.

The first-person narration takes us into the mind, heart, and soul of a genuine Ditsy Blonde named Sophie Green, who is of course recruited to be a most unlikely spy, all while working as an airport check-in clerk. The structure and routines of a British international airport are written from experience, and that really helps the story along. The agency that takes Sophie on, a forgotten branch of British military intelligence called Special Operations 17, has dwindled to a staff of four: the boss, called One; the master spies, Two (aka Maria) and Three (aka Luke); and Four, a factotum named Alexa who holds the secret office and its operation together. To increase their substance in the bureaucracy, Two and Three are instructed to find a recruit; Two brings in Five, aka Macbeth, who could play linebacker for an American football team and has a criminal record and inclinations; and Sophie makes Six when Three (Luke, remember) likes the gumption she shows by chasing after a bad guy through the airport baggage belt at great risk to herself when the regular police don't show up. Ditsy, you see, with gumption. I found myself laughing out loud again and again, and that would never happen if she weren't also quite sincere, and not forever obsessed with looks and clothes like some other heroines; it's a nice set-up for comedy. And the way this story ends (no spoiler tags for that) makes it a much bigger spoof of spy literature than it seemed to be most of the way through. Oh, there's also gruesome killings, bits of gore here and there, and a plane crash killing all 147 aboard; bad guys will be bad guys. And of course Sophie has the hots for various guys, good and bad, but you just know she'll get that all sorted out (view spoiler)[and hook up with Three (hide spoiler)] . I liked it; maybe you will too.

    I'd give this 3 1/4 stars, because while it was a completely unbelievable (as in suspend belief in the real world), tale of a British Airline worker is overnight is recruited and becomes a spy, it still was interesting, with a good story. I laughed, and wanted to finish, which is more than can be said for many books. Sophie's antics do become a little silly and ridiculous by the end, but then the entire fictional splinter group of spies is also a little silly and ridiculous.

This is no Jason Bourne, but more like Stephanie Plum trying to be Jason Bourne, although Sophie is smart, and I did enjoy how she'd managed to figure out how to break into places that were intended to be secure. I'd go so far as to say recommend, because yeah, I think I'd read another.

    It took me a bit to warm up to the main character but once I did I enjoyed the story. An amusing cozy spy mystery with a touch of romance and a protag who is nearly always her worst enemy. She ends up being lucky when she really needs it and a bit off the wall most other times. She has a good voice and while she isn't a wonderful person all around, she's definitely got potential. I will most likely look into reading sequels. It took me a bit to warm up to the main character but once I did I enjoyed the story.

    The looked like it'd be silly - and it was - and yet it was a fun silly. I was kind of reminded of the television show "Chuck" - not really in the plot, but just in the feel of the book. I really liked the voice of the main character, and she is also pretty gutsy. It was a good, amusing read. The looked like it'd be silly - and it was - and yet it was a fun silly.

    The main problem I had with this book was the main character, which is a big problem when the novel is written in 1st person! Sophie Green seems to be shallow, one dimensional and annoying and the choices that she makes just seem very unrealistic and unrelatable to me.

All in all, I paid nothing for it so I gained nothing and lost nothing, and wont be interested in the sequels. As you now have to pay for it I would say 'avoid!' as there are a lot better books out there to spend your money on.

    Fun, light, easy read. Skip if you can't stand cursing. Sex scenes are not graphic. I enjoyed this book. The main character works for an airline, sees something she shouldn't, and is recruited to join a secret spy agency no one has ever heard of. There are a few parts where I didn't want to stop reading. Great book for unwinding/relaxing. Fun, light, easy read. Skip if you can't stand cursing. Sex scenes are not graphic. I enjoyed this book.

    Overall a good book. I think I might have enjoyed it more if it was a little shorter. I really did enjoy it but it seemed to go on for a long time. But I like her as she is nice and feisty. It will be fun to read the rest of the series.

    This is a great little story that's full of silly scenes, innuendo and a completely British way of being a spy! Sophie is bored of working for the budget airline company, having no money and being taken for a blonde bimbo. So after helping to stop a criminal she naturally joins an undercover spy agency. Suitable for everyone, its the kind of book you can devour on a train journey or beach. This is a great little story that's full of silly scenes, innuendo and a completely British way of being a spy!

    I immediately fell in love with the heroine, Sophie Green, a harried British airport employee. She's endearing, charming, flawed but lovable. Luca/Luke Sharpe is a capable alpha hero as a gorgeous undercover spy, and the romantic tension and chemistry between the two are wonderful. I found the mystery to be engaging, and it was loads of fun to see Sophie learn to be a spy by the seat of her pants. The premise of SO17 was a bit weak - a small collection of motley, half-assed and underfunded spies I immediately fell in love with the heroine, Sophie Green, a harried British airport employee.

I found the mystery to be engaging, and it was loads of fun to see Sophie learn to be a spy by the seat of her pants. The premise of SO17 was a bit weak - a small collection of motley, half-assed and underfunded spies was entertaining if not very believable. Johnson's writing style is right up my alley: dry and humorous with lots of snappy dialogue and slightly dated pop culture references. I enjoyed the use of first person, and I'm a sucker for all the British humor and slang, and the vulgarisms didn't bother me a bit. (My absolute favorite: "Her Ladyboat" in reference to an aristocrat) That being said, the airline and airport details were a bit overdone and got a little tedious. Sophie's accidental trip to Rome stretched credibility, and the bizarre cave-in scene in an abandoned building had me completely flummoxed. Did Sophie and Luke really have sex on a pile of rubble after she'd been shot and concussed or not? And if so, how could Luke be such a schmuck to do so? I was so wrapped up in the anticipation of when they'd finally get together, and the author reduced it to a profoundly unsexy description that was a huge letdown. (Spoiler for the actual quote follows...) (view spoiler)[ ...And then he pulled the rather ruined dress off me and I pulled his clothes off him, and then we were naked and once we were naked we got pretty hot and pretty happy, and then... God, I can't believe I had sex in the rubble. (hide spoiler)] Really? That's it? ARGH! And to rub salt in the wound, Sophie spends the rest of the book offering up thoughts about how great the sex was, and how she couldn't wait to do it again, but zero details. Maybe I'm a perv, but a sexy description of the actual act (even in flowery language) would've been appreciated. Still and all, I enjoyed the writer's style and voice enough to buy the next three sequels, so that's saying something. And I read all four within one week's time.

    Every morning Sophie Green swore that she would quit her job at Ace Airlines for making her get up at an ungodly hour but she looked good in the uniform and when anyone asked where she worked they thought it was so cool, but if she quit she would miss Sven, a hunky blonde god who was to die for.

She was a ticket agent but people did not need to know that it was a boring yet stressful job and she was running late for work, as she usually did. Seeing that she had the counter next to Sven Sophie happily worked, but when Lucas trained those soulful brown eyes on her and tempted her to drag him down and have her way with him she totally forgot about Sven. Lucas was taller than her and quite muscular but not in a weight lifter's way. Most men were shorter than her and she towered over her petite girlfriends, yet when he asked her to keep an eye on a fat drab little man and not let him board at any cost then sprinted through the terminal. The drab man was in line at Sven's counter behind what she hoped was a group of tourist and hopefully giving her time to come up with some kind of plan. Dang, Sven was through with processing him what could she do now? Calling out to him, he sprinted toward the hallway and not thinking Sophie ran after him. Luke Sharpe had been planted at Ace Airlines searching for the man who finally showed after months of his being there. Only a few people knew that he worked as a special agent for SO17. He was dedicated to his job and damn good at what he did, but what ever possessed him to get Sophie Green involved? Somehow he just knew that she would be trouble. Kate Johnson tells an outrageously funny story about a ticket agent/wannabe spy who has no clue which end of a gun shoots the bullet and drives a totally conspicuous car called Ted! Given the British slang that I barely made out, I Spy was one laugh after another and it is good to see that a ditsy blonde could save the day and oh, when Luke and Sophie finally hook up readers will just not believe where! I Spy is one hot read and too funny for words. Reader's enjoy!

I found it really difficult the first few chapters to keep up with the story because I could not tell where exactly I was in the text. Aside from that, I loved this book. I read it extremely quickly as it's a fast and light read. The book picks up with action right away in the first chapter, and by the end of chapter 4 - I could not put the book down! I found several parts of the book extremely funny, because Sophie is quite the unlikely spy. I suspect if I was better equipped with British colloquialisms - I would have laughed many more times than I actually did. There were a few times I found myself lost because I didn't quite understand the British words used or the airline lingo that was also used. But I was able to read those parts and not find myself confused in the story. The story has an expertly written mystery, plenty of foreshadowing and red herrings through into the story - and keeps you guessing the outcome of the case as you read. I was extremely shocked about the outcome, which was excellent. Usually I will skip ahead to see what happens so I'm not as surprised - but I couldn't do this when reading it on my phone! I am so eager to read the other three Sohpie Green books and am so upset my library doesn't carry them, otherwise I could go check them out right now to finish the series!

There is a little too much swearing, a little too much sex, and a little more gore than you would expect to see in a cozy mystery. But there is a mystery, and it is filled with humor, from the situations Sophie gets herself into, to her remarks, to the whole concept of Sophie being a secret agent. I started the book, thinking I'd read for 15 or 20 minutes before going to bed. Several hours later I finished the book, and went to bed much later than I had intended.

The chemistry between she and the hero (or is that heroes, cause there is more than one hunky male catching Sophie's eye) is almost mouthwatering. Chick-lit with just the right touch of danger and humor. As good as any Janet Evanovich book. Have bought the second book in the series and can't wait for it to arrive.

    I thought this would be like a British version of the Stephanie Plum series but Sophie Green is not as likeable or funny. It's not a matter of cultural differences since even though I'm American, I've lived in the UK for years and my husband is English. It was stuff like "my desperate need to be close to the beautiful people" - she just came across as too hung up on appearances. I also found a lot of it unrealistic.

It's a shame because I was looking forward to this but I couldn't get into it.

    English chick lit action story that fell short. There were some funny parts, but telling a story in the first person raises the stakes. By the end of the book I was getting tired of the main character, Sophie Green. She is a 5'10" busty blonde bombshell who all the men flirt with, but has no self-confidence. She says that she is not smart, but everyone else in the story disagrees. She can't work computers but she finds missing video files in the computer archives, etc. The British phrases were f English chick lit action story that fell short.

And not mind when they kill people or leave them locked in basement cells without actually arresting them?

    Not bad. Not great, and not really Stephanie Plum, but not bad. First in the series about Sophie Green, spy and airline check-in counter girl. Enter two handsome fellows, plus parents, plus brother's band. Hijinks ensue. Clutziness prevails. Sophie seems to have the same decision-making issues that Stephanie Plum often faces, but with far more grievous bodily injury to herself.

Sophie seems to have the same decision-making issues that Stephanie Plum often faces, but with far more grievous bodily injury to herself. Also, one of the worst...we'll call it "sex" scenes ever in a book. But, good summer read. I recommend it if you already read that type of thing.

    I downloaded this book as a free read from the kindle store. This is a light mystery with a touch of romance. The story revolves around Sophie, an unintentionally humorous airlines worker who stumbles into being a part of a secret spy organization. She builds a bond with the spy who recruits her, and the bond eventually becomes a romantic one. The story is amusing in the beginning, but Sophie's actions eventually start to seem a little ignorant and silly.

    This was a fun little yarn, very similar to Stephanie Plum mysteries( the main character even references her). Set in England, the (e)book describes the adventure of Sophie Green, a newly-minted spy and her misadventures. The beginning chapters felt disjointed and almost made me stop reading.( maybe because I had to get used to the British lingo??) The later chapters were much better and I enjoyed the characters. I probably will search out the sequels. If you like Janet Evanovich,you will like t This was a fun little yarn, very similar to Stephanie Plum mysteries( the main character even references her).

    I applaud the author for taking a very familiar storyline (bumbling ditzy heroine stumbles into a mystery and proceeds to be constantly getting herself into trouble and needing rescue from the competent and super sexy hero) and making me enjoy it instead of annoying me with all the cliches. There is a handful of English slang that makes for some minor confusion on this American's part, although I could suss out what was meant most of the time. Also the loads of nearly outdated pop culture refere I applaud the author for taking a very familiar storyline (bumbling ditzy heroine stumbles into a mystery and proceeds to be constantly getting herself into trouble and needing rescue from the competent and super sexy hero) and making me enjoy it instead of annoying me with all the cliches.

Also the loads of nearly outdated pop culture references means this book may not age well. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.
