Holy office intrigue. Because this story was definitely based on a great deal of that. It’s amazing how many different misunderstandings can come about because of it. How fun.

I very much enjoyed that this was written from the female point of view. It was a nice change of pace from the norm in suspense literature, or even romantic suspense. The entire story is spent following the haphazard heroine through a few days in her life. There are definitely a great many giggles and a few edge of your sea

Margaret is the stereotypical, self-loathing, dumb-blond secretary. Her life revolves totally around who she can sleep with to find a husband. She is ditsy, forgetful, and more concerned with her dress than the panic she creates when she loses a top-secret document. Trying to retrace her steps to recover it, she runs into spies everywhere. Unfortunately, most of them are just as predictable and silly.
I read this with tremendous difficulty. I kept waiting for some tremendous drama and intrigue, b
