I love the mix of genres in this story and I have never seen time travel done in such a way. I found myself really feeling for this unusual couple. Overall it is a very sweet story and the ending will make you cheer.

Joya pens "Hereafter" in a unique smoothly flowing plot filled with paranormal suspense, romance, and time travel. This is not your normal everyday ghost story, it just so much more with the characters and their emotional pasts. With just the right amount of suspense, this book kept me turning the pages.

OK, I loved this book. I saw the excerpt and had to read it and sometimes that gets me in trouble because let us be honest, people do not put the best parts of their books as excerpts. Not the case here. I loved this mystery/love story/paranormal adventure/time travel story. It flowed beautifully, I could not put it down, and I totally had the wrong solution to the mystery. That filled me with happy because I usually avoid mysteries because I know who did it early on and it bugs me. Maybe I was so immersed in the story of two "people" connecting who so badly needed a connection that I missed the clues, maybe I over thought and the solution I thought was just absurd, or maybe it was simply a great mystery. Frankly, it was probably a combination of all three. Whatever the case I enjoyed myself thoroughly. I will definitely be looking for more by this author.Was this review helpful?

I loved this book! So different from many other romances out there, in a good way. Rob and Angie make an unusual couple and the twists and turns their relationship took kept pulling me deeper and deeper into the storyline.I am glad this is book one in a series because I didn't want this one to end. Highly recommend. Fast read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I was completely fascinated by the world created in Hereafter. The summary already says a lot, so I won't delve too much into the plot of this short story. It starts off with a simple man trying to live a simple life, or should I say trying to get on with his life after a bad break-up. Moving into this particular apartment totally changes everything he believes in when he encounters a beautiful ghost. Suddenly, he becomes entangled in solving a mystery that ultimately spins his life in a different direction.
Now, with Rob being a tax accountant, you might think he's a boring person, but he's not. As his story unfolds and his tragic past comes to play, I truly felt the pain he held inside coming off the pages. What kept me reading was the mystery surrounding Angie. She's a ghost caught between two worlds, and her sadness and need for someone to just believe tugged at my heart.
With a story combining endearing romance, mystery, life lessons, and the sexiest way to time-travel, I found Hereafter to be a truly enjoyable read. It will make you believe that anything is possible.
