Most Helpful Customer Reviews
“Temporarily Insane,” Vicki Batman’s follow up to “Temporarily Employed,” is an unpredictable combination of humor, romance, and mystery. Hattie Cooks is smart and sharp-witted. The author takes the reader right into Hattie’s head from the very first page and readers are with her every step of the way. Hattie makes her living as a temporary employee or “temp” accepting short-term job assignments. Her latest is as an Administrative Assistant for a CPA firm. The title of this book must stem from Hattie’s job interview because that entire scene was the zaniest of job interviews from start to finish. Nevertheless, despite her misgivings, Hattie needs the job and accepts the position, taking readers on a wacky ride. Detective Allan Wellborn is “hot.” He and Hattie had known each other from childhood. Hattie muses over circumstances from the previous novel that brought them together again, but not as close as Hattie would have liked. “Temporary Insane” finds Hattie and Allan still as “friends,” with Allan involved with another woman. When two auditors at the CPA firm turn up dead, Allan and Hattie find themselves in the mix – both professionally and personally. The humor is dry-witted, the mystery theme almost like something out of a Hallmark Channel movie, the identity of the killer freaked-out this reader, and the romance? Let’s just say Hattie is a true heroine. **I received a copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased and honest review.**
