Praise for Until I Met Her:
“With an unnerving glimpse into the cutthroat world of publishing and one author’s terrifying journey to the top of the New York Times bestseller list, Ms. Barelli’s taut thriller gives new meaning to the phrase ‘ghostwriter.’ This page-turner will keep you up at night.” —D.M. Pulley, author of The Unclaimed Victim
About the Author
Natalie Barelli can usually be found reading a book, and that book will more likely than not be a psychological thriller. Writing a novel was always on her bucket list, and eventually, with Until I Met Her, it became a reality. After He Killed Me is the second and final book in her Emma Fern Series.
When not absorbed in the latest gripping page-turner, Natalie loves cooking, knits very badly, enjoys riding her Vespa around town, and otherwise spends far too much time at the computer. She lives in Australia, with her husband and extended family.

Emma is still the trusting naive person she was in the first book, only this time she is also a bit of a bitch. And also a bit crazy lol
Jim is still the ass he was in the first book. well I thought he had changed, but then poof nice little twist shows his true self.
Newcomer Sam (ghost writer that Emma hires to help her write a second book) Well he was a creepy/stalker guy. I so did not trust him.
This book takes place 2 years after the first one (Until I met her ) The success that Emma has from her first novel (the one that Beatrice really wrote) is coming to an end. And she is getting pressure from her publisher to write another book. So why not have a ghost writer help you, enter Sam. While she is trying to work on this, Her husband Jim, who Emma has been pretty much blackmailing to stay married to, finds out her secret that she did not really write the first book and also some other things she did at the end of the first book. And he and his girlfriend Carol hatch a plan to expose Emma and have her take the fall for a murder.
Couple of twists and turns I did not see coming. And then seeing Emma trying to justify everything she is doing in that crazy mixed up mind of hers
I enjoyed the first book better than this one, but I still liked this. And wouldn't mind seeing what other trouble Emma could get herself into
This story follows on from "Until I Met Her" with successful author (even if she didn’t actually write the book herself) Emma, remaining with her insipid, narcissistic husband Jim. They have an agreement. He stays with her rather than his love interest Carol, and she will, each year on their anniversary give him something back of his that incriminates him in deceiving the sponsors/clients and funders of his ridiculous economic formula that will save the world. He needs this back as he too is a fraud who has been conning his employers and supporters.
When Carol approaches Emma and pleads with her for assistance as Jim has been hounding Carol, Emma idiotically comes up with a plan to dispose of Jim, who has walked out on Emma.
The rest of the story is actually rather nerve-wracking and proves that some people, Emma, for one, is born under a lucky star as she just seems to, no hold that thought, actually does get away with murder.
There were a number of grammatical errors in this book (Kindle version) but the most disconcerting was the change of surname of her first murdered victim from the first book of Hodgson-Greene to Johnson Greene. Bizarre. I also didn’t understand the title. It makes no sense. 4 Stars for entertaining.
I hated for the book to end, but as another reminder of Barelli's funny and dry sense of humor, the last sentence of the book found me bursting out with a final laugh as I closed the book. Well done Natalie!
Five stars as the level of violence is low and descriptions are not scary for faint hearted readers like me!

Emma Fern is back and needs to write a novel, somewhat of a task seeing as she didn't write her prize winning debut. I don't want to say too much in case you haven't read Until I Met Her because this book does really pick up where we left Emma.
This series really deserves a lot more attention. I have recommended them to my book friends as a must read and have even pre-ordered NB's next novel. I am actually quite sad that we won't meet Emma again, hopefully the author will reconsider and make it a trilogy.
Not the worst book I’ve ever read, but I thought it fell flat in places. Like the first book, none of 5h3 characters were likeable, but you still root for Emma as she’s the narrator.
