The Temp

By Michelle Frances

The Temp by [Frances, Michelle]

4 out of 5 stars

Carrie is a television producer and her husband a very successful writer. Carrie has it all and when she realizes she is pregnant, wants to include a baby in that mix. Adrian does not. In comes young Emma. She is eager to work in television and to stand in for Carrie while she is on maternity leave. Carrie’s radar goes up and she feels as if Emma wants her job and more. Emma does have her own agenda but it might not be exactly what Carrie thinks it is.

This was great fun. There is a lot of cat and mouse going on throughout the story. You get a few All About Eve vibes. You get a lot of vibes that are totally wrong! There is one big reveal that I do have to say I figured out very early on but that was okay. It made a lot of things more understandable. You definitely feel for Carrie and for Emma in various ways. You will not get the feels for Adrian. He is one of the jerkiest characters you will read and I kept wondering just what Carrie saw in him in the first place.

This is another good book from Michelle Frances. I always look forward to them and am never disappointed.

Thanks to Netgalley and Kensington for a copy of this book.
