Hereafter Review

Hereafter (Hereafter, #1)
4 out of 5 stars

Title: Hereafter
Author: Tara Hudson
Published: June 2011
By: Harper Collins
Edition: ebook

Thank you to NetGalley & Harper Collins for this edition.

Opening line: It was the same as always but different from the first time.

Closing line: I always would choose the hereafter, when it was a hereafter spent with him.

Favourite quote: "You're constantly giving me the best gifts, even if I don't realise it at the time".


Best ghost story I've read!!

Existing as a ghost Amelia can't remember anything about herself other than her name and small parts of her death. She had no memory of how she died or why she died. She is wondering aimlessly in the afterlife believing she has no purpose, that is until she meets Joshua, or should I say until she saves Joshua.
After an accident that causes Joshua's car to drive over the bridge Amelia has some kind of connection with him that allows him to live.
After saving Joshua's life the two soon become friends and the relationship grows as they try to find out who Amelia was when she was alive. But this new relationship is not without it's problems which includes Joshua's grandmother and his own destiny as well as Eli who is trying to make Amelia his apprentice in the afterlife.

I really enjoyed this book. Hudson is a great new edition to the world of paranormal romance.
I really warmed to Amelia and loved how her story unfolded as she and Joshua worked together to piece her 'life' together. As her story is revealed she begins to feel emotions again which is something she didn't think she was capable of any longer.
As the two learn more about Amelia Joshua's own destiny is revealed to him which is a shock to say the least. But it seems Joshua's grandmother wasn't just telling ghost stories after all.

Hereafter is the perfect start to a new paranormal series and Hudson sure knows how to keep reading and wanting more. I'm looking forward to seeing what lies in store for Amelia and Joshua.
