Readers everywhere fell in love with Syd, Maddie, David, Michael, and the irrepressible Roma Jean Freemantle in Ann McMan’s 2011 bestseller, Jericho. Now, return to the tiny mountain town in the long-awaited sequel, Aftermath.

Over the past eighteen months, Syd, Maddie, and little Henry have become a family, and things are going surprisingly well for most of Jericho’s residents until a devastating disaster strikes.

Over the weeks and months to come, Syd, Maddie, and all of Jericho are forced to pick up the pieces and try to rebuild their lives and their town. The task is sometimes hard, sometimes emotional, and sometimes absurd, but always full of smart and sassy humor and an abundance of good food and wine.

Check out the pre-release review by the author, Barrett.

    Hello Ann, I came across Jericho only a few days ago and found it to be so engaging and well written that I sank my teeth into Aftermath right after. Excellent story. You made the characters memorable. There’s so much humour and wit. I had to love the stories cos I read them on my tiny iPhone! Great job! Hope there will be another one to follow! — A cross eyed fan

    just finished it and am delighted…. Jericho was the best I read in ages and Aftermath is the worthy sequel…
    not to put pressure on you, but with the way you left it, I figure we will enjoy more of Maddie and Syd in the foreseeable future ?

    I didn’t know you were doing a sequel, but I read it and loved it. I hope we haven’t read the last of these wonderful characters.

  4. Hannah Tran

    I read Jericho two years back and I absolutely loved it! I couldn’t believe it when I heard that there was a sequel. I just wanted to say that I adore your work. 🙂

    1. Ann McMan

      Thanks, Hannah! And I HOPE you enjoy Aftermath, too.

    I just finished reading this ‘journal of your love affair with a small town.’

    It was worth the price of admission.

    1. Ann McMan

      Thank you! I’m so gratified that you enjoyed it. Now if only I could get these blood stains off my keyboard….

    Ooh, I have been waiting for this book for ages. Got it from Amazon and reading it right now.

    1. Ann McMan

      We have something in common…I waited for ages for the damn thing to come together, too! I hope you enjoy it.

      You ordered the Deluxe Bacon-Wrapped Lady Gaga Cocktail edition long-sleeve with the sequins, right????

    Wohoo, I’ve been waiting for this! I’ve bought and downloaded from Bedazzled. Can’t wait to read it.

    1. Ann McMan

      I really hope it was worth the wait!
