JaquelynAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Twists and Turns!June 10, 2021JaquelynAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Aftermath had me on the edge of my seat, and enjoying every minute of it. From the horror of reading about a bombing first hand to nervously hoping the truth would prevail, Blackstock is a suspense master. The twists and turns in this book took me by surprise and that's not an easy thing to do. I easily loved Dustin and Jamie and had fun picturing them growing up alongside each other. I could not imagine how Dustin was feeling being accused of being a terrorist. Having to prove yourself innocent isn't as easy as it sounds, and Dustin and Jamie have an uphill battle ahead of them. Will innocent until proven guilty be true in Dustins case? Or is something more sinister at play?
This story threw me for a loop several times. I had a hard time putting the book down not knowing what could possibly happen next. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Suspense with just the right amount of Romance mixed in. I received a copy of this book from Thomas Nelson Publishing and was in no way forced to post a positive review. All opinions expressed are my own.

There is lots of action when there is an explosion at a political event. I liked that Dustin had made something of himself despite his childhood after the death of his parents. Jamie was an excellent female protagonist who believed in Dustin even though evidence pointed against him. If you like suspense, you won't want to miss Aftermath by Terri Blackstock! I received a complimentary e-book through NetGalley. This is my honest opinion.

The perfect length for reading on a lazy Saturday, Aftermath blends suspense, faith, and romance into a story I didn't want to put down.
Told from the perspectives of four people whose lives were rocked by an explosion at the political rally Dustin was framed for, the story held its sway over me to the very end. The main characters, Dustin and Jamie, were all that I hoped they would be. Despite not having had any contact with each other since they were teenagers and close friends, they fell naturally back into a friendly relationship. In fact, I loved the way Jamie knew Dustin was innocent even though the evidence had been stacked against him, and the way she fought so desperately to clear his name.
I was intrigued by Taylor's story as well. She suffered from extreme trauma, which drove her back into the obsessive behavior she had left behind her. It was so fascinating to see her perspective, motivations, and the way she saw the world. While I would have liked to have learned more about what happened to her next, I didn't feel the story was incomplete because of where things were left.
There is a strong faith element to Aftermath. I was so touched by the realization Jamie had of the way her prayer life had become a series of short requests instead of a deep communion with Jesus. And by Dustin's faith that remained strong despite his stint in jail. In fact, the sweet way he was able to use the very thing that kept him sane through that night to encourage another hurting soul was beautiful.
Readers who enjoy faith-filled suspense that uses mystery more than fear as the driving motivation will want to read Aftermath.
