Aftermath (Jericho #2) by Ann McMan






⭐⭐☆



We loved – absolutely LOVED – Jericho and went into this one with high hopes. But though the writing is strong and all the characters are still there, we were more than a little disappointed. What we expected was a new romance set in the town with the characters from the first book being present in supporting roles. What we got instead was just life going on with the same characters.

Set eighteen months after the first book, Syd and Maddie are living together with the little boy, Henry. A storm comes along and whips the town and then everyone is getting back on their feet.

We found that McMan tried too hard to be funny in this one – but didn’t quite pull it off with the same élan. Syd and Maddie remain super-awesome and super-hot together, which is about the best thing in the book. Maddie’s best friend David becomes quite intolerable in this book. Roma-Jean and her discovering her sexuality should’ve been the main story in the book. That would’ve been a much better read.

Sadly, we just cannot recommend this book, but since the writer really knows the craft, it is not a complete write-off either.
