Fun and artistic Dimity Forbes is not
having a good day, make that week. So in a way, it doesn’t
surprise her when she bends over in her borrowed, too-tight
suit to slide a resume (not even her own) under a door that
her skirt splits. Great. Just add that to her two black
eyes and no real prospect of not being seen by the group
coming down the hall and it just about sums up her current
It is the whole absurdity of the
situation that makes Josh wants to protect this over-made up
pixie before him. So after much cajoling, she lets him help
her. But what is a girl to do when her savior is not only a
total hottie, but now he appears to be her temporary boss.
Josh doesn’t know why he is so
protective of the woman. Other than he can’t get her out of
his mind. But when he approaches her with the theory that
someone is out to hurt her, she is not only offended but
gets very mad at him.
Can Josh convince her of the danger
before he loses her? Will she admit her feelings for him
before she completely drives him away?
I was pulled into Temporary
Intrigue from the first pages. Okay, so I actually
was laughing out loud at the first few pages and the issue
with the pink suit, but that kept me coming back for more.
Then I was trying to figure out “who did it.” As with many
of my favorite mystery writers, I thought I had it figured
out, then had to change my mind. I loved how Josh stuck
with Dimity even when I thought she was living up to the
first part of her name (Dim), but then again, I have seen
some people give those in real life a lot of chances, too.
This story had it all: fledgling romance, humor, intrigue,
and siblings growing up (finally living up to their age, not
just taking advantage of others). I thoroughly enjoyed
Temporary Intrigue and look forward to reading
more from Ms. Huston.
