Release Date: January 29, 2019
Genre: Domestic Drama/Thriller
Actual Rating: 3.75 stars
The Temp is an absorbing domestic drama/thriller that I devoured in a day. While I didn't love the book I did find myself compulsively reading it until I hit the end. The book had me absorbed and I didn't want to stop until the final twist. One of the main reasons I have it a 3.75 stars (rounded up to 4) is because everything develops so slowly. Sure, it works for the story but I think had it been paced a little faster I would have enjoyed it more. What bogged it down for me was the technicalities of being a TV producer and writer being talked about over and over again. Other than this, I think the characters were developed well, and while I didn't connect with them on a deep level, they were interesting enough to hold my attention for the entire book. The twist is killer too. I think many people will enjoy it. I certainly didn't see it coming!
If your looking for a propulsive thriller that will slowly wind you up until the incredible twist, this is a book for you in 2019. I'm excited to see how the authors writing started and plan to read her debut in the near future.
