Review: Dream Lover

By: Suzanne Jenkins

I'm going to make this short since my computer died last week and my old pc is giving me fits as well.  I'll try to update this post when I get my good computer back.  :)

I wasn't sure when I read the description for this book if I was going to like it or not, but I decided to give it a try.  I'm glad that I did.  The book was well written and the characters were "real", if you know what I mean.  I haven't read the earlier books in this trilogy so I am having to play catch-up with the characters.

Pam is having to adjust to the difficult situation that she has found herself in following her husband's death.  She is now paying for the consequences of his actions in so many ways.  There are many who, in this same situation, would have reacted in the negative, would have raged against the world.  Pam is gracious and kind to all of the people who come to her after his death.  She also has to handle the sticky family situations regarding her sister's long term affair with Jack and telling her children that she is sick.

This book just pulled me in once I started it and I couldn't put it down until I was done.  I am going to have to make some time to read the earlier books and discover how this story unfolds from the beginning.
