Publisher's Summary

Librarian Syd Murphy flees the carnage of a failed marriage by accepting an 18-month position in Jericho - a small town in the Appalachian Mountains of Virginia. Her plans to hide out and heal her wounds fall by the wayside as she gets drawn into the daily lives of the quirky locals. She becomes fast friends with Maddie Stevenson, the enigmatic physician who has returned to the backcountry community to take over her late father's medical practice. Together they learn that life and love can have as many twists and turns as a country road.

As Good As Advertised

The setting for this book is the area where I was born and not far from where I now live. That was my original reason for risking a credit on 21 hour book. It is usually difficult to sustain interest in a book that long because there is often a lot of filler material in a book that long. There is some of that in this one but I'm glad I gave this selection a chance.
The twenty one hours went by much quicker than I thought they would because this is an excellent audiobook. This in spite of the fact that it took the two of them longer to make a move on each other than it has any couple thus far in the 21st century. The verbal sparring and repartee engaged in by Maddie and Syd as well as between David and Maddie is both witty and funny. I'm not sure how old the author is but the sexual banter between the two of them has all the wit and verve of a Three's Company episode. An excellent touch here is so much of the activities and dialogue of the people in a small mountain town that the author gets right. Far too often authors or narrators unfamiliar with the area try to shortcut getting right by assuming all southern towns, as well as all southern accents are the same. Well they're wrong; no matter how much they might believe Carroll O'Conner in 'The Heat of the Night' and Andy Griffith talk the same; they don't. Roma Jean Fremont the girl who continually falls down around Doctor Maddie Stevenson isn't fall down funny but is a nice little humorous aside.
This is one of the better audiobooks I've listened to for awhile; great story.

Great chemistry between characters w/LOL moments

Good story with lots of colorful characters and interesting plot lines. Really liked the chemistry between Mattie and Syd. While I know the story continues into the book Aftermath, I almost wish McMan had decided to expand on and flush out several of the storylines more completely. Ultimately I think this could have been split things up into 2+ books. Might have read smoother in the last 1/3 of the book where there was a lot going on and things being brushed over. That said, I still highly recommend this book as a great listen. Found myself relating to many things. 👍👍

Wonderful banter!

Where does Jericho rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I have listened to too many audio books to rank that. I have 87 in my audio library and was disappointed with only a couple!

What does Christine Williams bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

In my opinion, the narrator of any book is as important as the story. If you don't have a good narrator it will not bring the characters to life.

Any additional comments?

Jericho was the first book by Ann McMan that I had purchased. I bought it on the recommendation of Audible and listened to the short sample. I was not disappointed! I really enjoyed listening to this book. I liked the characters Maddie and Syd, and I loved the banter they shared. The author has a wonderful sense of humour! When I had finished this audio book I went on to Amazon to see if she had any other work. I was thrilled to see there was a sequel, ‘Aftermath’ which I immediately purchased. Again, I was not disappointed! I look forward to the 3rd book in the ‘Jericho’ series, ‘Patriarch’ I believe is out later this year!

pent up frustration, anxiety much!!!

If you could sum up Jericho in three words, what would they be?

funny, heart stopping, anxiety

What other book might you compare Jericho to, and why?

i cant seem to find any other book to compare this one to for some reason.

Which character – as performed by Christine Williams – was your favourite?

I loved Maddie. She is so funny, determined and loving. i love the way how she stuck to not making a move on a straight woman as she didn't want to scare Sid off. Even when Sid finally made a move she was determined not to rush anything.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

drive a woman crazy

Any additional comments?

must say this book had me cursing morning noon and night. I was on edge waiting to see when the hell one of them would make a move.

okay story, didn't suit me

I liked this at first, but found it too long. Lost interest around chapter 20 and moved on to a different book.
