The Joneses are in a family crisis in The Aftermath by Shelia Goss. The Joneses once pillars of the community are stripped of their social status when Royce Jones is arrested for murder. Royce is being accused of killing his so called friend, Jason and even though Royce had a good reason to the family knows he didn’t commit the crime. In this sequel, Lexi, Hope Lovie and Charity become amateur investigators in the fight to clear Royce’s name.
The Jones children have not a bit. Charity is dating a police officer named Omar and enlists his help to save her father. Hope picks up with an old friend but not before she informs Charity to be careful with Omar. Hope believes there is something suspect about him but she just can’t put her finger on it yet.
Lovie has stepped up to run the family business while his father is away. He has also taken on the job of protector trying to make sure nothing happens to his mother or sisters. These women make it hard for him by not wanting to follow his directions. As Lovie and his mother Lexi dig more into the death of Jason strange occurrences start to happen. When they get closer to the truth the family finds out everything is not as it seems.
The Aftermath is an entertaining book about family, secrets and murder. The author provides readers with a suspenseful storyline that has a hint of drama. These characters will keep readers on the edge of their seat anticipating their next moves. I couldn’t help feeling the frustration of the Jones when all secrets where revealed. I hope there is another book in this series. I recommend The Aftermath to others.
