After Hello

Back Cover Summary
Seventeen-year-old Sara is a seeker. She’s always on the lookout for the perfect moment to capture with her ever-present camera, especially on her first trip to New York City.

Sam is a finder. He has a knack for finding what other people can’t, whether it’s a first-edition book or the last two tickets to a sold-out Broadway show. In New York, there is always something interesting to find.

When Sam and Sara cross paths, neither one of them is prepared for what they will find out about each other — and about themselves. Forming an unlikely partnership in the search for an elusive work of art, they’re racing against time to set things right for everyone. Did fate bring their talents together for a reason, or will this one day be both a hello and a goodbye?

My Review:
I loved this book. With inviting writing, a quick pace and a wonderful first-love adventure, After Hello is a pure delight to read. Author Lisa Mangum has a gift for subtle but smoldering romance. Sam and Sara are believable, cool characters. Their story, set on the background of fabulous New York City, is one teens and adults will fall in love with.

Although different from her Hourglass Door Trilogy, this new stand-alone novel by Mangum is just as wonderful and fans of the trilogy will not be disappointed.

The perfect read to cuddle up with this fall.
