Reviews of Patty Sleem's novel Second Time Around:
"Second Time Around features well-developed characters and an unusual plot twist as a relational novel reminiscent of Anne Rivers Siddons becomes a murder mystery. Sleem's use of language and situation may disturb those with a traditional concept of what constitutes Christian fiction, but Sleem seems more interested in exploring the tension Christians experience as they strive to balance what they 'know' to the be right with what 'feels' right. Unlike characters in many Christian novels, Sleem's characters are neither all good nor all evil; simply humans struggling with difficult choices in the light of their relationship with a holy God. Second Time Around is a worthwhile addition to Christian fiction collections and will appeal to fans of both mystery and relational novels."--Jane M., Reviewer, Public Library

"Author Patty Sleem has captured the essence of small town Southern life and the many layers of relationships one finds there. She skillfully weaves a picture of 'the way things are done' in small town politics and families. Various theories and clues lead the reader through a well-written mystery. Excellent detail helps the reader to both see and feel the scene. In one instance, you can almost smell the sea as described by the author." The Daily News, Bowling Green, KY

Reviews of Patty Sleem's novel Back In Time:
"Maggie Dillitz has turned her back on a lucrative business career in order to pursue a call to the ministry. To her dismay, she soon discovers that many people are not ready to accept a female minister. Receiving a post only because of sudden and unexpected vacancies, Maggie soon alienates her parishioners. Sent to Jamaica in a last-ditch effort to save her career, Maggie is sexually attacked by a senior minister. When that minister is murdered after her return to the States, Maggie quickly becomes a chief suspect. Sleem provides an engrossing look at the discrimination faced by female ministers. Patrons will want a follow-up." - Library Journal
"Lots of contemporary issues in a plot that pulls readers through the pages. Glass ceilings in the ministry, sexual harassment from the least likely corner, homicides no less surprising. Sleem develops an attractive character in Maggie Dillitz, a Harvard Business School grad who gives up the rat race after 15 years to enter the ministry. Less frantic? In her dreams. Intriguing exploration of current Judeo-Christian issues." -- The Book Reader
