Book 1 of the NEVER SAY SPY series

Despite her penchant for weapons and ripe language, Aydan Kelly’s resumé reads ‘bookkeeper’, not ‘badass’. She’s leaving the city to fulfill her dream of rural tranquillity when she gets carjacked by a man who shouldn’t exist.

When RCMP officer John Kane kills her would-be abductor, Aydan thinks her troubles are over. But Kane’s investigation implicates her in an international espionage plot, and criminal charges become the least of her worries when she’s targeted by the very spies Kane suspects her of aiding.

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

-Spicy suspense served hard-boiled-

  • Never Say Spy

    By Dotti Smith
    Never say Spy was a great read. Didn't get much housework done because I wanted to know what was next to happen. It had a very interesting plot with portals, sims and computers which gave me a window into possibilities of future things to come. I am 90 years old and hope I see some of them happen. I'll get "The Spy Is Cast" when my next SS check arrives. (Maybe you could include a 5'2" gray-haired great-grandma in your cast of characters in one of your literary endeavors😊.)
  • Love the leading lady

    Thanks for writing such a real character. She's not a watered-down lily, she's a real woman. Can't wait to read the rest of the series!

    Maybe being a bit generous. It was a good book, but a slow start and a bit far-fetched.
  • A good escape read

    Very fun and witty spy novel. The heroine is interesting and relatable. I definitely stayed up too late reading this book. Looking forward to the next one in the series.

    In my estimation Diane is a very good writer with a very down-to-earth approach to her Books. The characters she developed are ones who keep your interest and make you chuckle throughout the book. I would recommend it to anyone and look forward to reading more of her releases.
