Nobody cuts deeper than family....
Dr. Noah Alderman, a widower and single father, has remarried a wonderful woman, Maggie Ippolitti, and for the first time in a long time, he and his young son are happy. Despite her longing for the daughter she hasn't seen since she was a baby, Maggie is happy too, and she's even more overjoyed when she unexpectedly gets another chance to be a mother to the child she thought she'd lost forever, her only daughter Anna.
Maggie and Noah know that having Anna around will change their lives, but they would never have guessed that everything would go wrong, and so quickly. Anna turns out to be a gorgeous 17-year-old who balks at living under their rules, though Maggie, ecstatic to have her daughter back, ignores the red flags that hint at the trouble brewing in a once-perfect marriage and home.
Events take a heartbreaking turn when Anna is murdered and Noah is accused and tried for the heinous crime. Maggie must face not only the devastation of losing her daughter, but the realization that Anna's murder may have been at the hands of a husband she loves. In the wake of this tragedy, new information drives Maggie to search for the truth, leading her to discover something darker than she could have ever imagined.
Riveting and disquieting, After Anna is a groundbreaking domestic thriller, as well as an audiobook of emotional justice and legal intrigue. And Lisa Scottoline will keep listeners hooked until the final shocking seconds.

I don't usually take time to write out a review but this book was so horribly bad that I almost feel a duty to warn others. I have over 175 titles in my audible library and this is one of the worst books I have ever listened to. How in the world are there so many 5 star reviews of this book??? The writing.......so, so terrible. The plot......I've seen LIfetime movies that are better...and I despise Lifetime movies.
Where to even begin!! I love a good courtroom drama, the courtroom chapters in this book were just unbearable to listen to. Are we really to believe that those questions/comments from the PA would ever be allowed in court. Noah is supposed to be a brilliant physician yet he is absolutely incomprehensibly terrible at testifying for himself.
If the courtroom parts aren't enough to make you cringe, let's talk about the dialog between Maggie and her best friend. These are supposed to be grown women I am assuming to be in their 40's. Just a few gems that Maggie and her friend say "SRY (actually spelled out loud... S.R.Y.) like text lingo but they use it in conversation?!? Also "OMG" Also spelled out?!? Are these grown women or 13 year olds!! Have you ever heard grown women talk like this?!? Another favorite "No, we aren't detectives....we are Moms on a Mission" UGH.......So so bad. Some of the worst I have listened to.
Are we also to believe that these 2 shallow flaky women solved this complicated criminal case in the span of one afternoon/evening in the middle of a snowstorm....HA!!
The plot itself is just absolutely ridiculously unbelievable. Not to mention that if I were Noah and my wife thought I was capable of sexual molestation and murder I would not have been inclined to live happily ever after with her.
Does this author think we are stupid or did she just get a little taste of success from past books and decide to quickly throw some crap together and call it a novel. Absolute and total garbage. I felt so insulted when it was over that I had to jump on here and warn others.
