Summary

No matter what her family and friends say, Jenny knows she will never fall in love again. How can she, when her childhood sweetheart was one of the countless killed at Waterloo?

So when the Earl of Danfield proposes a marriage of convenience, it seems the perfect solution. He will secure his inheritance, and she will be spared the necessity of being paraded in society, forced to dance and flirt and do all the things her broken heart cannot do. His proposal will give her what she wants most. Peace.

But peace is the last thing she finds in her marriage. Her growing attraction to the earl brings with it guilt that she’s betraying her beloved Johnny. Her mother-in-law considers her an interloper. Her husband’s former lover makes it clear she doesn’t want it to be former. And when a supposed prank nearly kills her, Jenny has to wonder - now that the earl’s inheritance is assured, has she become an inconvenience to be eliminated?

Pleasant story

Good story but a bit rushed once they were at the castle especially the climax.

Surprisingly Good!

"After the Storm" exceeded my expectations. It was well written and had a well thought out plot. The characters were interesting and likable.

The author has a good command of language, so her descriptions were not overly wordy. Her characters came alive under her talented pen...it's as if you were there.

"After the Storm" has love and romance, intrigue, murder and attempted murder. I don't like reading about explicit sexual lust or detailed blood and gore, so I appreciated how tastefully everything was done.

It held my interest from beginning to end.

Stevie Zimmerman gave a great performance.

Can't miss with Claudy Conn

Narrator: Stevie Zimmerman does a nice job. But I really don't like how she makes the heroine's voice so whiny and that in most of the books she reads.

Liked the story, the plot and of course the ending.
The one part I couldn't get into is all the fuss Gwen(Jason/the Earl's twin sister)makes about why he shouldn't marry Jenny. And I was getting a bit bored with Johnny, Johnny, Johnny.
The plot did keep me guessing who-done-it. And was a bit surprise of who it really was until it came to the sabotaging of the bridge .

Which character – as performed by Stevie Zimmerman – was your favorite?

Wow!! What can a girl say?? I had read the book and loved it, but hearing it come from someone else was just amazing!! Stevie Zimmerman did an outstanding job! Changing character in a blink of an eye with her voice was just perfect. Claudy wrote an EXCELLENT book and Stevie sent it over the top. <3

Loved this one!

I loved this story. The narration was perfect. She has a whimsical voice. The story was good with a nice twist to the end. Both of the main characters were very likeable. I did struggle whether I should buy it or use a credit. I like to save my credits for longer stories so I bought it in the end but it is a bit pricey for 6+ hours.

I absolutely loved this book. I love that Jenny was able to fall in love again after suffering such a horrible loss. I love that Claudy's books always have love with a hint of mystery to them.
