Wanted: Assistant to provide maternity cover for high-powered TV producer. Must be bright, creative, with killer instincts. Emma would do anything to work for the woman who has the job she wants. Carrie is at the top of her game, with a dream career, a baby on the way, and a handsome screenwriter husband. For Emma, with parents who dont understand her ambition and a serious misstep behind her, this temp position might be her last chance. Carrie has given up more than anyone knows to get to the top of a ruthless business. She wont give up this baby too. But with Emma filling in for her at the office, her perfect life starts to unravel. Her bank account is inexplicably overdrawn, her husband seems strangely distant and colleagues are all too happy to take Emmas creative direction. Carrie finds herself dying to get back to work . . . until a letter left at her door changes everything. Trust and fear trade places in a love triangle that defies readers expectations at every turn.

Book 5/50. Such an interesting premise, and the book was a slow, brilliant build up to the very ending. Rating: 4.5/5

If this book was about a hundred pages shorter I would have liked it better. The middle and ending dragged on and on and it was so unnecessary. I skipped a few chapters to get to the end. Also, I didn't really care when I came upon the twist. 🙄

I had a book hangover after Shirley & Genji. A part of me was still in ancient Japan, enjoying the moon under the cherry blossom trees, while another part was with Caroline & Shirley, eating bread & milk in a darkened dining room. So I turned to a psychological thriller from #netgalley to pull me back into the present. This was a treat. No ludicrous twists & a sharp take on the creative & entertainment industries. I also liked the gender politics.

tammysue Enjoyed it! 10mo
batsy @whatshesreadingnow Your review is perfect; I agree with all of your points 🙂 10mo
saresmoore I think I‘ve been nursing a book hangover, too, and nothing seems to be able to serve as the hair of the dog. 10mo

I was pleasantly surprised by The Temp. It led me down a path then switched gears + took me somewhere completely different. I especially enjoyed when a secret revelation ramped it up another notch! From start to finish I was hooked with its very credible portrayal of Carrie, in her 40‘s whose life plan suddenly changes, a selfish husband I strongly DISLIKED, + temp Emma a neurotic writer (I actually did like!) The Daughter releases in June. 4 ☆

Loved this authors first book ‘the girlfriend‘ and this one did not disappoint! Finished it within a couple of days couldn‘t put it down, such a page turner and very creepy 😬

Carrie and Adrian are martied and working together, Carrie falls pregnant and fills in for her in the office as her temporary replacement. Emma seems determined to get revenge for something but her vendetta is on Adrian not Carrie. What is she up to? She seems to have built her world on lies. This was a suspenseful read with a plot twist that I did not even anticipate to the point of it had me putting my Kindle down and saying what did I miss?!
