BOOK REVIEW | Aftermath by George Weinstein

Aftermath by George Weinstein

2/5 stars

*I received a digital advanced reader copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. 

From the publisher:
Janet Wright left tiny Graylee, Georgia at five, when her mother fled a destructive marriage. Now forty and reinventing herself after a failed engagement, Janet returns as the sole inheritor of her recently murdered father’s valuable estate. Life should be easy, but she can’t resist pulling at the threads of the apparently open-and-shut case. Before long, she finds herself tangled in Graylee’s web of secrets, lies, and scandals — and in fear of her own life.

My thoughts:
Aftermath started off really well and I was drawn right into the story. Pretty quickly, however, I started to notice the bizarre sarcastic dialogue between Janet and Tim. It was sort of cute at first, but this level of sarcasm cannot be sustained throughout an entire book without totally grating on the nerves. The dialogue just felt so unnatural with every single character. The mystery was interesting enough to keep me reading, but I nearly quit this one a few times because I couldn’t stand the dialogue. A big thanks to NetGalley and the Deeds Publishing for the copy!
