This is the second of the author's books I've tried and unless changes a great deal there won't be a third. There were far too many scenarios occurring that didn't manage to move the narrative forward at all. Then there is the matter of Connor one of the book's two lead characters who for some reason the author portrayed as the consummate bitch. It's good that the author made no attempt to portray the lead characters as too good to be true, but neither is it realistic to have the one lead character presented that way, while the other has seemingly fallen for a woman who does nothing but insult her. I made it to about the halfway point before I threw in the towel; even if Connor managed to change her behavior the fact that Logan had put up with all her rude, anti-social behavior, mixed in with multiple put-downs and insults was enough for me. Verbal abuse and bullying are ugly whether they are perpetrated by a man or a woman.

What disappointed you about After the Fire?
Connor had no redeeming quailites at all -
What was most disappointing about Emily Smith’s story?
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Margaret McCormick?
Narrator actually did a good job.
Any additional comments?
Based on the premise of the book, and the jobs of the characters, I really wanted to like this book. The story line had such potential, however the complete lack of redeeming qualities of Connor had me struggling to even finish listening.
