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 life.

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.
