After The Wedding

After The Wedding is a sequel to the novel Excuses. Excuses is a novel of four short stories. One of the short stories is titled, Wedding Day. In Wedding Day we are introduced to Blake Hollister and his bride-to-be Tiffany. Their wedding day ceremony is interrupted by Blake's ex-girlfriend. After the smoke has cleared, Blake found himself being a husband and a widower with minutes of one another. After The Wedding picks up days later with Blake unhappy with the way his wife's murder investigation is going. Fed up with the police department, he plays detective and takes matters into his own hands. In this novel, the author gives her readers mystery, suspense, humor along with unexpected twists and turns. The author also adds betrayal and a crazy character who goes by the name of Sharee Anderson. My rating is 4.5 stars out of 5 only because I deducted a half a star for the few errors in the book. Overall, this book took me on an emotional roller coaster ride and I enjoyed every moment of it. If you're looking for a fun and wild book that will play on your emotions, After The Wedding is the book for you!
