A captivating read. Though slow at times, I found the novel quite interesting. Tracy Brown is the only writer of urban literature who develops her characters and presents a detailed, entertaining story with each and every publication. She makes urban lit relevant and is a very talented writer. "Aftermath" will not disappoint - trust me!

Really good read (listen) hoping it's a part 3 or a spin off . I felt like something is still going to hop off.. lol
This is my first time reading Tracy Brown and I have to say she did not disappoint me. I really didn't know if this book was going to be a mystery, thriller, suspense or a Christian book. There was thrills and suspense and sex. Aftermath also has some Christian content but not an overwhelming amount. Just some comments like some one saying a prayer and forgiving someone for their past. I felt it was portrayed in a pleasing way and not over bearing.

Aftermath is the story of Misa, Camille, Toya, a

Brown has to be the top female urban fiction author IMO. Brown's books aren't the "usual" urban fiction. You don't pick up a Tracy Brown book and get T. Styles in return. You get an actual author who can write. One who obviously thought beforehand, made decisions about what would be best here and there and moved on it.
I've known people who thought they wouldn't ever like urban fiction. They've come to this conclusion because most of the genre is like Styles and a host of others names I can't rem

Aftermath was a page turner!! I really liked this book. It picks up right where Snapped left off with Misa sitting at the dining room table after murdering Steven. In this book, Frankie's sanity and emotional stability are tested through his changing relationships with Camille and Gillian, and much of his past is revealed testing his relationship with his mother. Toya and Dominique's stories were also a cliffhanger, but their issues are resolved more quickly than Camille, Frankie, and Misa's. Th ...more

The main plot of Aftermath revolves around Misa, who killed her sister, Camile's, brother-in-law Steven, because she suspected that he had molested her child. The story is complicated from the start, but definitely a page turner! Even though every character seems to be in the midst of their own personal chaos, each of their stories links back to the main event, Steven's murder.

Tracy Brown does an excellent job of peeling back the layers of each character, allowing the reader to understand the h

Got this one courtesy of Library Thing. Action-packed from page one, the kind of story that makes you want to keep reading when you should be doing other things, like eating, sleeping, driving...

Two sisters. Four friends. Fathers, mothers, stepmothers, brothers, friends like brothers... Aftermath has it all. Tracy Brown penned a sweeping tale about two sisters dealing with the consequences of their decisions, but not only the two sisters but everyone in their circle. Each has made less than idea

This was a great sequel to "Snapped". I actually enjoyed this novel better than the first, but you absolutely have to read Snapped first to understand the characters. My heart broke while listening to the testimonies at the trial. Misa is my shero! It was also nice to see Camille's character evolve and show such strength. Tracy Brown is a great writer. I was captivated and couldn't stop listening.

I truly enjoyed this book. First time reader of author Tracy Brown and I can say that I'll be an avid reader if her material.
Cant believe this is the 50th book I have read in 2011--yaa what an accomplishment only a billion more must reads to go :)..So I would love to review this book thoroughly but hate to give too many spoilers, if you have read the first review this book stays with the same characters and goes right back to where it left off with enough mention of the first book that reading it isnt a prerequisite..So was intrigued to finish this book after reading the first one and unfortunately an uneventful weeke ...more

I blogged about Snapped last January which is the prequel to Aftermath, the story of four African American female friends who live a lavish lifestyle on the surface but are dealing with serious issues underneath. Camille Bingham goes from being the pampered wife of mobster, Frankie to being deserted, penniless and pregnant. Her best mate, Toya Blake has to deal with her abusive father who she has been estranged from turning up on her door step. Another friend, Domminique Storms faces the crisis ...more

I recently read/listened to Aftermath by Tracy Brown, narrated by Allyson Johnson. I really enjoyed this book. A well written urban lit title. At times it felt like a soap opera, but that wasn't a bad thing. What a tangled web of characters. There are certainly a lot. All of whom were clearly flawed, yet redeemed at the end. Misa, Camille, Toya and Dominique remind you of the friendship and comradery that the women of Girlfriends have, yet with the backdrop of a gritty crime drama like

I really enjoyed this book. It started off with a bang and kept my interest the whole book. The main characters were Misa, Toya, Camille, and Dominique, friends who were similiar to that Waiting to Exhale bunch of ladies. Each with their own drama but still having an abiding love for their girlfriends.

The book immediately starts with Misa shooting her brother-in-law, Steven Bingham. Then we starting learning of how all the characters were connected, the secrets the girlfriends were too ashamed t

I recieved this book through the Early Reviewers program on Librarything. As the descrption of the book was intriguing, I was excited when I received this book in the mail. Aftermath is different than most books that I typically chose to read. I read more of the Christian fiction and Chick-lit genre, so suffice it to say I found the language to be a bit saltier than I'm used to. Aftermath deals with many in your face subjects, i.e. infidelity, murder, abortion, organized crime, and child sexual ...more

I was peeved that Snapped ended with cliffhangers for each of the female characters. I caved and got the follow-up book. At least I found out what happened to the four women. But, I didn't like the heavy-handed message of forgiveness that repeated throughout the entire book. I understand forgiveness and redemption, but in several of the situations in this story, I could have done with a little less forgiveness (that doesn't mean I wanted a lot more revenge--okay, maybe a little bit). I think wha ...more

This was a good book. I enjoyed it better than book #1 to the series. This was the story of the lives of 4 close female friends after Misa killed Steven, Frankie left Camille, Dominique dealing with her relationship with her daughter, and Toya coming to grips with her childhood. Toya remained my favorite in this book. She kept it 100. Misa and Camille remained close nit sisters and supported each other no matter what. I loved that aspect of the book. Misa's lawyer was the bomb. This book reminde ...more
I enjoyed this book more than the preceding one Snapped. Both were good in my opinion, I just felt this one drew me in more. Although a tough topic to hear about, getting to the bottom of Frankie and his deceased brother's childhood abuse really showed how that can affect one as they grow into adulthood. You never know what someone is going through or has been through. Camille, Misa, Dominique and Toya all had to make some tough decisions and showed tremendous growth by opening up and facing the ...more

Recommends it for: Drama Lover, Ghetto drama, Drug Trade Drama, She took my man drama lovers
If drama is what you like or love then you have most certainly hit the spot. Brown's Aftermath has made its mark on the world of drama filled lives.

Aftermath did not let you down from the predecessor, Snapped bk 1 in the Snapped series. This is drama upon drama filled to the ghettofied conclusion to 'Snapped' series. Each have their day in court. Each have to answer questions that they may wish stayed un-asked. Each have to deal with the aftermath of what this past year has set into motion aroun

Aftermath: A Snapped Novel by Tracy Brown is an interesting study of a number of women and the emotions they feel as they deal with the situations life has thrown at them (and situations they have created based upon choices they've made). I did not read Snapped, the first book in the series, and it was tough to keep track of the various characters because the viewpoint moves back and forth quickly. If you've read Snapped, then you probably won't struggle at the beginning as I did. Once you becom ...more

I waited 6 weeks to get this book on backorder from the Library and was super happy when I found the book in awesome condition. This book however, was less of a thrill ride than the previous book by Tracy Brown. Found Misa's trial very sad, but I loved the way they banded together to make life work once the shizzz hit the fan so to speak.

Wished the scenes with Camille and Frankie consisted of more than just how much hurt they had and got turned into an episode of Maury or Jerry Springer if ever

I really loved this sequel to Snapped! In this novel there is infidelity, physical and mental abuse, attempted murder,murder and a whole lot of drama to boot. Frankie & Steven endured years of abuse causing Steven to do something very heinous. The ladies Camille, Misa, Toya & Dominique stuck through it all and in the end they found happiness. All of the ladies have had their share of sorrow but they made it. This is truly a story of redemption and healing and I say hats off to you Tracy ...more

Wow. This is the 2nd book that I've read, w/the 1st one being Snapped. She continued the story exactly where she left off on the first book and I really appreciated that. If I hadn't read the 1st soon afterward, it would have helped to jog my memory. I loved that. The story flowed very well and had me totally captivated. I finished this book in 2 days and that's saying something since they were workdays.

This is the second book i read of Tracy Brown, the first being Snapped. I love the way AfterMath picked right up from where Snapped ened. It was so good i didn't want to put it down.

I love how everything played out for each of the characters at the end.

yes i would recommened this book.

It was a really great read for me.

This is well written but I did not really liked thestory! I loved thefact that even though it is part of a series you can read it as a stand alone with out missing a beat! The reason i did not love it is due to my life view and experience differing so much from that of the woman in thebook!

Excellent read, well written, great theme and plot. Characters were realistic and seemed to jump off the page. This is my second novel that I've read from Ms. Brown (1st book read was Snapped).

I loved how the courtroom drama unfolded before my eyes. I couldn't put this book down. It is a definite MUST READ.

So far so good haven't finished yet but I loved white lines and snapped,she gives you a lot to read for your money,you get what paid for and then some . She make you feel as if you know the characters and draw yo into their lives without giving away the "what's next", She is a female version of K-wan , which is compliment in it self.TWO THUMBS UP AND A SNAP WITH A TWIST

I initially thought that there were too many characters being introduced at the beginning of this book. It was a little confusing to keep track, but it eventually all fell into place. Although this was not a page turner I found that it was a good read overall. Nice story line and great ending. I would read other books by this author.
