Let’s start with the characters. Amelia had something about her; I instantly liked her. I loved going on the journey with her as she learned about her past and how she died. I have not read many ghost stories but I never thought about them not remembering their life. I really liked the way Tara Hudson described this area- as a ghost Amelia kind of started over and had to piece everything else together. It was like a mystery, wrapped in a paranormal, and mixed with an AWESOME romance.
Joshua is the boy in this story- and I want him all for myself! He is one of my favorite book boys that I have read about in such a long time! He has such a strong faith in Amelia and it never wavers. I love that so much. Another thing I loved was the romance aspect in this book was major! That was such a nice surprise, since so many of the books I have been reading lately have just been hinting at romance. Hereafter did not hint, it full on put the romance in the spotlight. And I devoured it! I love how Joshua was the only one that could make Amelia feel any kind of sensation- this meant a lot of touching in this book! yay! and I also loved how Tara Hudson described their touch as heating up like a fire. I thought that was a really cool way of describing how things are different for the two of them, since Amelia is a ghost.
Everything came together in such a nice and satisfying way. I loved everything about this book. I am not sure if there is going to be a second book because the ending kind of left some questions unanswered but still wrapped things up. So maybe that means there is a possibility of a sequel? I sure hope so! Wonderful book! Everyone needs to run out on June 7th and buy this book!
5/5 Gavels. (really it is like 7/5)
