CaroljoFarmington, MOAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Political Rally ExplosionJune 4, 2021CaroljoFarmington, MOAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Aftermath has a lot of unexpected twists that will keep you wondering who the bad guy is and will keep your attention! 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.

Floraljoy4 Stars Out Of 5Seeking justiceJune 1, 2021FloraljoyQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4This was an interesting mystery with a touch of suspense and a hint of romance.
Dustin and Jamie been friends and neighbors during their teenage years but had lost touch. However when Dustin suddenly found himself accused of bombing a political rally he reached out to Jamie for legal assistance. It was nice seeing these two reconnect however I would have liked to see more of their romantic journey.
This book drew me in from the very beginning and had me devouring the pages until sadly there were no more to be had. I was intrigued as to how it would all play out and I liked that despite all of the danger and false accusations, it never became too dreary. I also liked the message of trusting in God our Refuge when times are tough.
