In Aftermath, author Terri Blackstock transports the reader to Atlanta, Georgia for an intriguing Romantic Suspense story that follows four people who are interconnected by the traumatic after-effect of an unexpected terrorist bombing at a political rally.

Taylor Reed and best friends Desiree and Mara attend the political rally for US Presidential Candidate - Libertarian Ed Loran featuring a concert by the band Blue Fire. As the concert ends and Candidate Loran enters the stage, an explosion goes off from the stage. Taylor is the sole survivor of the three friends, and the bomb explosion killed a total of twenty-six people, including the presidential candidate.

Dustin Webb is a veteran of the Army Ordnance Corps and co-owns GreyWebb Securities, a designer and installer of commercial security systems with Travis Grey, his best friend from the Army. An anonymous tip targets Dustin as carrying boxes of explosives in his trunk tied to a recent theft at ChemEx, an ammunition plant inwhich GreyWebb had installed a company security system. Dustin is arrested under suspicion of the theft and involvement in the political rally bombing.

Jamie Powell is a criminal defense attorney and Dustin's childhood friend. Dustin calls Jamie and asks her to represent him on the charges of felony possession of explosives and terrorism. Dustin claims that he is innocent and being set up, Jamie is determined to prove Dustin's innocence, and find the person responsible for the bombing.

Travis Grey is Dustin's best friend and business partner in WebbGrey Securities. They served together in the Army Ordnance Corps. Travis has been at his wife Crystal's bedside at the hospital as she battles terminal cancer, and has been hoping that the new Leukemia treatment will help her recover.

Aftermath follows the unexpected and traumatic inter-connection between Taylor, Dustin, Jamie and Travis, and how each of them deals with the aftermath from the terrrorist bombing at the political rally. A survivor, a wrongfully charged man, a childhood friend and defense attorney, and a business partner dealing with a family medical issue ... each struggles with the trauma and determination to find the person responsible for the bombing and getting justice.

Author Terri Blackstock weaves a multi-layered and suspenseful tale written in the third person alternating narrative that easily draws the reader into this well written story. The richly descriptive plot will keep the reader guessing as survivor guilt, secrets, deceit, betrayal, unwavering friendship, and heartbreaking family drama, and unexpected twists and turns are uncovered. I loved the intertwining of the four characters' individual perspectives, and how their struggles leads them to search for justice after the traumatic devastation felt throughout Atlanta.

I would be remiss if I didn't mention how much I enjoyed the backstory of Dustin and Jamie's childhood friendship, and the touch of Christian faith that is interspersed throughout the story.

Aftermath is a fast-paced and riveting suspense story that will take the reader on one heck of a thrilling roller coaster ride.

Sometimes I forget how great Blackstock's work is! "Aftermath," her newest thriller, brought back the reasons I love falling into an engrossing read--great characters, fast moving plots and a commitment to relatable faith journeys.

Blackstock delivers a relevant, current story of Jamie, a lawyer who ends up near the scene of a recent bombing, unaware of the connection she has with the man accused of the crime, her childhood friend Dustin. As Dustin tries to unravel the mess he's now in, Jamie must evaluate if she is the right person to help someone who she considered a friend. Can Dustin be trusted? Could she find a way to clear his name?

What began as Taylor and her friends attending a concert turned into a living nightmare when the explosion happened. Reeling from the loss of her friends and the trauma that followed, Taylor decides it's up to her to right the wrongs and begins her own search for the killers. Taylor also deals with the additional challenge of OCD, which I appreciated seeing in a novel. It's nice to see a diagnosis that is often misunderstood expanded on for the sake of educating readers.

Blackstock leaves the reader wanting more, so I hope this *might* become a series? The characters are well developed and relatable. The plot was thought out and resolved by the end of the book, which I appreciate.

I was an early reader, thanks to Thomas Nelson publishers and #NetGalley. All opinions are my own. ( )

This was a very quick read for me, I just couldn’t put it down!
From the first scene it was mesmerizing. After the *incident*, the story is told from several points of view: Taylor, who was a witness; Dustin, the accused; and Jaime, who is a defending attorney. The connection to the culprit was intricately woven into the plot. I especially liked the reunion between Jaime and Dustin who grew up next door to each other. The health issues of PTSD, OCD and cancer were very well represented and realistic. The story dealt with family, reconciliation and how faith affects our circumstances. It was great to see the growth that Dustin experienced throughout the story. “ The sure knowledge that God had his back filled him with strength laced with calm. He would fight this, but wouldn’t be fighting alone.”
Ms. Blackstock has proved herself again as a wonderful suspense author. One of my favorite writers.

From the beginning I was hooked on Aftermath. Terri Blackstock does a masterful job of capturing the reader's imagination and only letting go when the story ends, though Aftermath definitely stuck with me long after I read the final page.

Aftermath is told through the eyes of multiple characters, giving no doubt to their perspective, and really giving each character incredible depth. There are several storylines within the main story that are tragic and utterly heartbreaking. My heart ached for Crystal, the wife that is dying of cancer, and Dustin the man that is framed for the bombing, but is seemingly innocent. Travis, the grieving husband of Crystal, and Taylor, the bombing survivor that is lost and grieving. So much tragedy and so much grief are within these pages, but at the same time you see the sprinkling of faith that is throughout the story that gives hope and balance. I love that the times of faith and prayer aren't forced, but feels organic and real, truly warming my heart.

Though it's pretty obvious from the beginning who is responsible for the bombing, it didn't matter that I knew, as Aftermath tends to focus more on the psychological rather than action, which I appreciated.

I truly think this novel is sheer perfection. Terri Blackstock is such an incredible writer, pulling me deep into the narrative, attaching my heart to these characters, to the point that I physically felt the weight of strife and tragedy myself. The pace isn't too fast or too slow, and I found myself craving to pick it up every time I put it down, yet sad when it ended, as I felt like I finished it too fast.

Honestly, I could see myself reading this book again, which is something I do not normally say. I cannot recommend this novel enough!

Aftermath by Terri Blackstock is a modern day suspense story that starts out running and doesn’t stop. There is so much action and twists and turns I struggled with putting the book down. The characters are good, strong characters to the point the ending shocked me. I enjoyed how Jamie responded to her first message from Dustin in years, just dropping everything to go help him. Together they work so hard to claim his innocence, while clinging to faith. The story also touches on the traumatic responses to surviving a terrible situation.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from JustReads, this is my honest review. ( )
