Review: Hereafter

Title: Hereafter
Author: Joya Fields

Publisher: Decadent Publishing

Genre: Paranormal romance

Heat Level: Hot

Reviewer: Storm Goddess

Review Rating:  3.5 LIGHTNING BOLTS

Blurb: When by-the-numbers accountant Rob Morrison, a skeptic of all things paranormal, moves into a new apartment and discovers it is haunted by the corporeal ghost of a beautiful woman, he must hastily reconsider his beliefs and revisit his painful past.

With no memory of her time on earth, Angie Barsotti doesn’t understand why she’s compelled to visit the same apartment every night as a ghost caught between two worlds. If she’s to have a chance to move on, she needs to find the missing pieces of her life and death through the man who lives there…if only he’d believe in her.

Together they struggle to find the truth about her death and stumble upon a very pleasurable way to time travel, hopeful they can prevent her death. But someone doesn’t want them to discover the truth. And if she’s human again, will she have any memories of her time as a ghost…and more importantly, will she remember the man who helped her find her way?

REVIEW: It's not every day you run into a ghost, and it's also not every day you start to have feelings for one.

Or that the ghost would have some for you.

Strange world we live in, right? Rob doesn't beleive in ghosts anymore. At one time, he did. But Angie changes his mind, and she also changes his life. There are some strange circumstances that circle Angie's death.  Plenty of speculation, and people that Rob watches closely. 

Angie is ecstatic that finally, someone can see her! She's lived in a dark world for a long time, not sure how she got there and what happened to her. By some wild twist of fate, Rob is brought into her life and he plans on helping her to find out how she died.

I know this book is paranormal, and so the realm of believability can be broandeded some, but the one thing about this story that gets me is the way the pair can get Angie back. It's just, to me, on the odd side. Other than that, I enjoyed the story. I was plenty curious at how there would be a happily ever after for a ghost and a living being, but it worked out. I enjoy a good book with a ghost, and Hereafter certainly grabbed my attention. There's times the slotry falls a little flat, but I kept going because I needed to know what was going to happen!

Need a bit of a paranormal suspense mix? Give hereafter a shot. It's intriging, haunting and full surprises.
