Book Review: Remembrance by Meg Cabot

Members of the Vise Library were selected to review Remembrance.  We received a copy of Meg Cabot's book for an honest review.

About the book:

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.
Suze is back and she's brought Jesse, Paul & all of the ghosts she helps go to the other side with her.  It's been a few years since we've heard from her and this story fills us in on everything that has happened since the last Mediator book.  Jesse is in his medical residency and Suze is on her way to becoming a counselor.  They both have their plans but those could be in jeopardy for so many reasons.  One of those roadblocks in her way is Paul, a not so friendly person from her past, and he is trying to strike a deal with her that could harm Jesse.  Suze is also dealing with a very angry (and dangerous) ghost.  She has to dig into the past in order to find out why the ghost is hurting people.  Like all the other books in this series, Cabot delivers so much wit through this character.  I was laughing at all of Suze's crazy antics and the adventures that she experiences.  Fans of these books will love the addition to this series.  I am so glad that I was able to visit with Suze and friends again!
