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.
Shiromi Arserio is a stage actor, voice talent, and audiobook narrator from London. She holds a BA in theater from Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance. In addition to narrating dozens of audiobooks, her voice can be heard in documentaries, e-learning projects, and video games.--This text refers to the audioCD edition.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
1. The main plot is fine, believable even, but much of the story is ridiculous.
2. The writing style is not very good and often not very realistic. It's like a high schooler wrote it.
3. The "news" articles were laughable. I have never seen a news article written that way. I can't imagine any editor allowing them into print.
Below is a paragraph I copied.
"I cock my head at him. There’s a bit of perspiration on his top lip. I wonder if I’m making him nervous. “She’s been murdered, Frank. You honestly believe that it will go away?” That makes him wince, and I honestly can’t tell if it’s because I brought up her murder, or because I used the Lord’s son’s name in vain."
I'm sorry but I don't see the Lord's son's name. Do you?
5. The two rich women calling each other 'girlfriend' made me laugh out loud and then I just felt sorry for them.
6. The whole thing has a rushed feeling. There isn't much back story and what things you do learn is just thrown out in a ho hum manner. There is only one actual surprise, the who. By the time you get to it in the final 10 pages you basically really don't care.
7. The "epilogue" is just stupid. A nice tidy fairytale ending. So unrealistic that my eyes rolled far back into my head and I saw my brain.
8. There is absolutely nothing to connect you with the characters so it's impossible to guess who might be doing what and why.
I think that covers it. A soap opera episode would have been a better use of my time. I have no idea why this has high reviews but I should have listened to the low ones. I only read to the end because I gave up $3.99 for this, whatever you want to call it. If I could I'd get a refund. I can't see myself ever reading something from this author ever again. I have a list of authors to avoid. Now there's a new name on it.
I caught mistakes that should never have been made. The way the two girlfriends speak to each other doesn't play out like I think was intended. Instead it just seems awkward and forced. And the main character seems to think, speak and behave like a teenager.
I kept reading this book with an open mind. I just kept hoping that it would get better and I'd be glad I gave it a chance. Sadly, this was not the case. I read a lot and tend to go through a book every 3 days or so. This one took much longer because it just didn't draw me in. In the end finishing the book was worse than just putting it down and giving up on it. I was honestly a bit angry with the ending. I really hate giving bad reviews, but this book was so bad I feel like I have to write a review as a service to people that may be considering purchasing it.
Her life is perfect until she finds some sexy underwear stuffed in Mike’s pocket, which raises the memory of a previous indiscretion he committed, which she forgave and even helped him cover. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned is given full rampage in this tale. She forgave him once, but not a second time. Now he's going to pay.
It is ultimately a tale of being deceived by those you have tried to help and be nice to. In this case, Mike’s daughter from a previous marriage. The daughter is bi-polar, bulimic and a cutter. She is manipulative, deceitful and destructive as those afflicted with these conditions so often are and wants to get rid of Tamra at all costs.
This is a compelling and gripping story. This book has such a mixed bag of reviews I wasn’t sure of what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised. I found the story fast paced and quite engrossing
I enjoyed this book very much although the ending was unexpected

Yes, there are twists and turns, but they are convincing and nowhere near the contrived, and manipulated incidents your'e supposed to believe in the majority of psychological thrillers.
Her situation got maddeningly frustrating towards the end, but this only made it more of a page turner. Loved the love to hate characters; Pastor Frank and Madison. Overall, a riveting good read.
Not sure I’ll read any more books by this author.
