Review – Hereafter – Joya Fields

Hereafter: Hauntings at Inner Harbor by Joya Fields
Review submitted by: Cara Davidson

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?

Cara’s Review
This is a fascinating read, ripe with all sorts of possibilities, and hopefully the beginning of a great series! Ms. Fields captures the romance, sci-fi, and paranormal genres into a cohesive collective, resulting in a book with unexpected twists and turns. There is nothing better than when an author can keep the reader guessing as to identity of the “bad guy,” but Ms. Fields accomplished it well!
Rob is complex character, with a believable mixture of denial, skepticism, and acceptance. You’ll end up routing for him and Angie…and oh, what a torturous way to attain their goal! However, they persevere. My only complaint about the book is that feels a bit like a huge cliff hanger, as lots of questions are raised, futures hinted at, and the possibility of new beginnings. Hopefully they will be explained and explored further in depth in later installments. Don’t fixate on the scientific realities, keep your mind open to the possibilities, and you’ll also become an excited observer into Angie and Rob’s quest.
