A review by mommasaystoread
Aftershock by Judy Melinek, T. J. Mitchell


Jessie Teska is back, and to be honest, I wasn't sure if I was going to continue with this series or not. The first book was a bit more detailed in the morgue than I cared for, and I was leaning toward this just not being the series for me. I finally decided that I liked the character enough to give it another shot. This one follows in the same suit as the first, but I was ready for it this time, so it didn't bother me as much. It's still safe to say that this is not a book to read while having a snack, but it is an interesting procedural. Jessie is a likable character, and it's easy to get caught up in her investigation. The story is a slow build with a steadily rising tension, and it's easy to see just how talented these authors are. The flow and pacing work well for the story and while it may be more graphic than I prefer, it's still a book I'd recommend.
