Pam of Babylon will keep you turning the pages from start to finish. In fact, the best piece of advice I have for any reader is to have enough time aside to read this entire book at once, because once you start it, you will not want to put it down. Any reader who enjoys chick lit, women's fiction, or just an enjoyable read will love this book. I recommend Pam of Babylon, and am very much looking forward to reading the next installment in author Suzanne Jenkins' series as soon as possible.

A Critic's Pick on Kirkusreviews.com
"An intriguing first novel that revolves around a husband's death andhidden secrets.
Women's fiction with a touch of noir."
A story about looking forward to restart life, even in the presence ofdeath
"When a book starts from a seemingly perfect place for the character, youknow he is not going to stay there long... So when Jack Smith is looking at theface of Sandra, his mistress, thinking "I am the luckiest man alive,"his luck is at its end. Not only would Marie, his wife's sister, find out abouthis affair, but he wouldn't live long enough to try to handle the scandal withPam, his meek, trusting wife.
This book is about looking forward to restart life already, even in thepresence of death. It is about healing, part of which comes from forgiveness. Iknow this sounds strange to some readers, who find Pam's behavior 'toounreal." Apparently it is easier and perhaps more natural for many of usto succumb to vengefulness. At the same time, this is exactly why this book isso fascinating. It offers a different possibility, a more hopefulone."There was something about cleaning up, washing everything, that spokeof new beginnings."

From the Author
After writing about Pam almost daily for the past six years, she's as real to me as family members are. Pam's friends and family are critical of her for going into relationships too quickly. but what else is she going to do? She likes having a man around and unless I write a book titled Pam Takes a Break, she'll just keep jumping in! Suzanne Jenkins August 2016
