Fifteen years after the release of the first Mediator novel, #1 New York Times bestselling author Meg Cabot returns with a deliciously sexy new entry to a fan-favorite series. Suze Simon—all grown up and engaged to her once-ghostly soulmate—faces a vengeful spirit and an old enemy bent on ending Suze's wedded bliss before it begins.
You can take the boy out of the darkness.
But you can’t take the darkness out of the boy.
All Susannah Simon wants is to make a good impression at her first job since graduating from college (and since becoming engaged to Dr. Jesse de Silva).
But when she’s hired as a guidance counselor at her alma mater, she stumbles across a decade-old murder, and soon ancient history isn’t all that’s coming back to haunt her. Old ghosts as well as new ones are coming out of the woodwork, some to test her, some to vex her, and it isn’t only because she’s a mediator, gifted with second sight.
From a sophomore haunted by the murderous specter of a child, to ghosts of a very different kind—including Paul Slater, Suze’s ex, who shows up to make a bargain Suze is certain must have come from the Devil himself—Suze isn’t sure she’ll make it through the semester, let alone to her wedding night.
Suze is used to striking first and asking questions later. But what happens when ghosts from her past—including one she found nearly impossible to resist—strike first?
What happens when old ghosts come back to haunt you?
If you’re a mediator, you might have to kick a little ass.
This book was such a fun read!! I've always loved Meg Cabot's books, but I (sadly) hadn't read any from the Mediator series until this book. HOW did I miss these books?! I loved the main character, Suze. She cracked me up! I was laughing out loud several times throughout the book, and thoroughly enjoyed Cabot's witty writing style. The story was fast paced, entertaining, and held my attention--it was a hard book to put down! Though Suze was my favorite, I loved all the characters, even Suze's crazy ex-boyfriend, Paul.
What impressed me about this book was how detailed and intricate the plot was and how all the character's stories wove together. The theme of 'remembrance" is evident in Suze's journey throughout the book. Suze has to deal with emotions and pieces of her past in order to move forward and solve the mysterious murder. The book was much deeper than I expected it to be, and was executed perfectly.
One of my guilty pleasures is TV shows like Ghost Adventures" so this book was perfect for me. Beyond that, it had lots of humor, mystery, romance, and fun! I'm so glad I read this book, and I'm definitely adding the rest of the Mediator series to my TBR! If you're looking for a fun, entertaining read, this is the book for you!
Overall rating for "Remembrance": 4.5 stars
