REVIEW: I don’t know what it is about books by Ashley Farley but, from the minute I pick one up, I am gone to another world. After the Storm was another one of those books for me. This book is supposed to revisit characters from the Sweeney Sisters Series. If you haven’t read that series yet, that is ok. I haven’t either and I was totally immersed in this book from page one. She did a beautiful job making it a stand alone novel. There is another one coming out in August that will also be a stand alone and I can’t wait that long!
The main characters in this book are in their mid to late 20’s. Even though I am much older than that, I still enjoyed the story. The characters live mostly in the same town and are mostly cousins considering they are offspring of the Sweeney sisters. There are spouses and girlfriends of these young adults and a few friends. Most of them are likable. You have to have a villain in a story to dislike. Right? Oh, and there are puppies too!
There are many problems going on and there is the typical angst that happens in everyday life but, the book is full of hope and lighthearted fun and dreams. I was entertained and involved with what was happening and couldn’t wait to get back to reading when I had to put it down. If you love a book that brings joy and happiness, one that will take you to a town on the beach then this book is for you! If you are a fan of Ashely’s, this book is definitely for you! Until next time…Happy Reading!

As a hurricane howls through their quaint lowcountry town, Lizbet seeks refuge in the familiar embrace of her childhood home in Charleston. Seven months later, she’s still living with her sister, flat broke with her fertility problem unresolved. If she tells Jamie the truth, she risks losing him forever.
Jamie’s marriage is on the brink of collapse. With no communication from Lizbet for months, he fears a divorce is looming. To complicate matters, a charming property developer enters the picture, stirring Jamie’s emotions and leaving him confused. Will he choose to honor his vows or pursue a new love?
