Three Jamaican women walk a tightrope of decisions when their lives are derailed by blackmail, deceit and infidelity.
JUSTINE CHARLES—sensible and self-contained—is sidetracked by romance outside of her marriage. Despite living with domestic abuse, she battles an addiction that threatens to destroy her home, reputation and relationship with her daughter.
DIONNE JONES, an aggressive go-getter, is obsessed with financial freedom. Her fixation leads her down a path that few women have the courage to tread and cuts a trail of devastation through her family life and business.
KYRA MILLS—struggling single mother—is crippled by debt, bad judgment and destructive choices. The drama never ends, thanks to a liaison with a man determined not to let her go, even if it means putting her life at risk.
Can two of the long-time friends survive startling revelations involving their partners? And will the other push her obsession to the point of danger?
PRAISE FOR DISTRACTION
J. L. Campbell’s Distraction is a read as enticing as the honey and caramel-skinned feisty women whose intertwined dilemmas are spiced with dialect and pinched with a generous helping of tropical Jamaica.

Distraction is an exciting, unforgettable story of love, betrayal and secrets.
~ Diana Hockley, The Naked Room and Celibate Mouse
Distraction is a fascinating glimpse into the lives of three women, each with their own distinct set of problems. I fell in love with the exotic Jamaican setting which seemed to me, another character. Campbell’s writing is compelling and she doesn’t fail to deliver with Distraction.
~ Jeanne Bannon, Invisible
Distraction is an insightful look into the hearts of three women who break society’s rules in search of happiness and completion.
