Temping Fate, by Esther Friesner (Dutton, 2006)

When Ilana Newhouse gets a temp job for the summer, little does she realize at first that she’ll be filling in for the Greek Fates, who turn out to be alive and well (like the rest of the pantheon) and desperately in need of some time off. But there’s more to the job than she realizes, especially when mythological characters such as Arachne and the Furies show up. And then there’s her sister’s upcoming wedding, which has turned the bride-to-be into Bridezilla. It’s going to be a bizarre, chaotic, hilarious summer indeed. Laced thoroughly with Friesner’s trademark humor and sly wit, Temping Fate is an excellent, highly humorous story that just begs for a sequel or three.
