I’ve been in the mood for a page-turning thriller and I definitely found it with The Temp by Michelle Frances. This is the first book I’ve read by this author and I’m glad I started with this one.

The Temp is about a young woman looking to break into the filming industry, by receiving a chance meeting with a producer she admires and how quick dynamics can change. The twists and turns in this plot were perfect. The characters easy to invest in especially as the story moved forward.

I believed Emma was this horrible character plotting against Carrie until I read more into the book. Carrie was needy to me and a little selfish especially with having a baby she knew would cause issues. Adrian was my least favorite. He was arrogant and only thought about himself. When I got to the end of the book I was satisfied, but you’ll have to read it to find out what I mean by that. This was a well-written book about the things people will do to get to the top and to stay there. Secrets always come back to bite. It had me on the edge of my seat trying to find out what Emma, Carrie and Adrian would do.

I like this author’s writing style and believe she did a wonderful job keeping me interested in the story till the end. I look forward to reading the rest of her work. I definitely recommend, The Temp, to those who love suspenseful thrillers and mysteries.
