Sep 01, Diane rated it really liked it. Enjoyable,good character development and great dialogue,strong supportive friendship with awesome writing Jul 18, T rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is a very long book that earns it’s worth.
Be sure to pace yourself, if you are one of those readers like me that keeps reading through the night to get to the good stuff. Fortunately, the entire book was engaging as the relationships between the characters builds up. Spending time in the lives of Syd and Maddie as fate goes above and beyond to throw them together, is a fun journey. I’ve since jricho back and read it again, from the beginning and no parts of it jsricho worth skipping over.
The w This is a very long book that earns it’s worth. The writing style and character interaction was that good. mman
Ann McMan – Jericho
Another positive aspect of this book, is that the author takes time to let us see the romance after it bursts into flames.
I definitely recommend this book. It is a top pick and well worth the money. I wish there were more from this author. Jan 23, Agirlcandream rated it really liked it Shelves: Nice to revisit the slow burn romance between Syd and Maddie, not to mention all the colourful locals inhabiting the little town of Jericho.
While we sit back and enjoy this budding romance, the author slides in some food for thought such as the opportunities we have in life to make choices. We get to choose when to mend fences or close doors on events in our past. Finding the right person to share your life with, someone who will stand with you as you make those choices is a special and beautifu Nice to revisit the slow burn romance between Syd and Maddie, not to mention all the colourful locals inhabiting the little town of Jericho.
Finding the right person to share your life with, someone who will stand with you as you make those choices is a special and beautiful thing. Clever quips aside, it was nice to spend jeridho with this memorable collection of friends and gossips.

It’s not the author’s best, but the funny thing is that its main problem–that it sprawls because the writing isn’t particularly tight–is actually something I love about it. It may not stand up to the author’s other books, but it’s a book you can sink into and while away a big chunk of time.

It actually reminds me a little bit of All That Matters by Mccman X Meagher, jeticho both are friends to lovers romances where we see the friendship develop from the very beginning. I highly recommend listening to the audio book because the reader is fabulous. View all 4 comments. This is beautifully written, set in charming town, with wonderful characters.
I think a good way to describe this book is comparing it to Ravel’s Bolero. There’s a single main theme playing, repeated in many different variations and with different intensity.
The main theme here is the gradual unfolding and revelation of Maddie’s and Syd’s love. And then we can see every chapter as a musical phrase, with its beginning and its ending.
It’s quite a characteristic choice, no chapter is left hanging or finish with a discordant note, each one tells its story and closes in a positiv I think a good way to describe this book is comparing it to Ravel’s Bolero. It’s quite a characteristic choice, no chapter is left hanging or finish with a discordant note, each one tells its story and closes in a positive way, another variation accomplished on the main theme.
Welcome Back to Jericho—Goldenrod Coming in 2017
A chapter can be the acknowledgment to be attracted, another the acknowledgment to be in love. In a chapter we see this love under the stress of a crisis, in another we see it broading towards a family. Also, the rythm is slow, repeated, sound. This is not a book with plot twists. I read in the reviews that many say it’s all predictable. But I think it mcmah a deliberate choice. Jericjo happening here has a meaning in itself; on the contrary it is just a context to see how love reacts to it, how everything changes in its light.
As not everybody can appreciate the Bolero, so I’m sure not all will like Jericho. But I was enthralled, captivated by the ncman and the good feelings permeating this tale jericbo passing through me. I’ve come to really enjoy it.
Aug mcmn, Jo reece rated it it was amazing. Loved the build up, Loved the chemistry, loved the story and loved the ‘banter’ between Maddie and Syd. Dec 07, Les Read rated it it was amazing Shelves: I was so obsessed with this book for awhile, that an old friend used to joke that it was my new girlfriend, Jeri Cho.
I do admit that I spent an enormous amount of time with her. But what did she give me in the end? She gave me a broken heart. We had a booty call a few months later Ann McMan wrote a collection snn short stories Sidecar, one of them featuring Maddie and Syd. I read so I was so obsessed with this book for awhile, that an old friend used to joke that it was my new girlfriend, Jeri Cho. I read somewhere that the author was planning on continuing the series with another book in I need closure, Nericho McMan!
This book earned a lot of awards and recognition, and for damn good reason. Jericho is the complete package: The banter between Maddie and Syd is witty, playful, and intellectually flirtatious. Their chemistry is jerichl off the pages. The romance develops slower than most lesbian novels and that helps it feel more organic and authentic.
If you kcman reading books that include any of the following: Fate — what a beautiful word when you become engrossed in an engaging and funny read with characters and writing that have you laughing and cheering. I listened to this story while taking a road trip and it was an excellent selection because it mcmab long yet kept me wanting more. Stopping to refuel was torture because I could not wait to get back in the jerjcho and continue to glide along with Maddie Stevenson and Syd Murphy.
The main characters remind me of people I would like to have in my lif Fate — what a beautiful word when you become engrossed in an engaging and funny read with characters and writing that have you laughing and cheering. The main characters remind me of people I would like to have in my life because they are so caring and nurturing about each other as well as others.
A doctor and a librarian, sweet. As others have stated the supporting characters make the story memorable and entertaining. I also think the description of the town is well presented to such an extent that I could visualize in my mind’s eye. OK – Own up?? Where have you been keeping this superb book? Just loved it – and really shows how plundering mccman “Goodreads” friends book lists you find some real hum dingers.
View all 3 comments. This review is for the Audio book. I’ve read it numerous times as it is one of my all time favorite books. I needed a anj read and an audio book, so this fit the bill. At first I didn’t care for the narrator, Christine Williams. I always imagined many of the interactions between Maddie and Syd to be rapid fire – ratta tat tat – back and forth. Williams didn’t do this.
