Blurb : 


When charming, seemingly devoted Jack Smith dies, his wife and his two girlfriends are astonished to learn that they were not the only love of his life, and that, in fact, Jack was a rogue who was carrying on secret affairs with other women. Shattered by grief and stunned by Jack’s betrayals, these three women, Pam Smith, Marie Fabian, and Sandra Benson, find themselves suddenly thrown together. They could have despised one another, jealously guarding their private memories of their time with Jack and hating those they perceived to be their rivals, but instead, the women begin to realize there might be strength in numbers and in shared pain. Slowly, they begin to open their hearts to one another. They bind together to try to make sense of their lives and to try to heal the terrible shock.

Book Review:

            Pam’s life was good and she was happily married until she gets a phone call that will change her life.  Her husband has died on the train on the way home from working in the city.  Unfortunately, as she grieves for the loss of her husband, two other women are also grieving the loss of their love.  Sandra, his co-worker and beneficiary at work, is pregnant with his child.  Marie, already has a young child, who is now fatherless.

            This is a sad story about how Pam and these two women bond over the loss of their love and the father of their children.  Pam, the legitimate wife, was totally unaware of the rest of the women, except that they have come to the house for weekend visits as friends and co-workers of her husband. 

            The book draws you in and keeps you interested, except that I wanted to slap Pam at times.  She was too poised, too forgiving, and accepting.  Personally I would have dug him up and castrated him, then had him cremated and his ashes scattered somewhere very far away.  But then again, I would be a little vengeful too.  Pam is lost without her husband, and confused by all these new revelations.  She’s a little too controlled for me.

I knew a lady who found out her husband cheated on her after his death and burial.  I don’t know that this story is true, but it is in character for her and I rather hope it’s true.  When she found out he had cheated on her, she had him exhumed from the family plot and buried elsewhere.  That’s the spirit I want to see from Pam, not this banal acceptance.
            Stay tuned for more on this series.  For this book alone I give 3.5 out of 5 clouds.  I was sweet and an easy read, but I truly expected more anger and vengeance.  Just a little too nice for me..
