I was very hesitant about reading this book. When I chose it for review, I had no idea that it was a part of a series. I have never read a book without reading the books that come before it and I wasn’t sure how well it was going to turn out. Before I even began reading the book, Meg Cabot has a note to not worry about having not read the prior books. After that, I felt much more comfortable about reading this book.
Like every book I read, it took a few chapters before I was hooked. Once I was hooked, I couldn’t put the book down. Meg Cabot put in plot twists that I was honestly not expecting. She also aged her writing. When I say that she aged her writing, I mean that she took it from high school appropriate to young twenty-something appropriate with having added just enough sexual content to hook a young twenty-something. Meg Cabot also hooked me enough that I want to read the original books (which will be added to my mile high TBR pile).
Susannah “Suze” Simon, the main character, is a mediator and pretty badass. Jesse de Silva, Susannah’s fiancé, is a hot doctor that any girl would fall for and also happens to be a former ghost. Paul Slater, Susannah’s ex, is annoying and you wish you could kill throughout the entire book. The relationship between these three can be quiet comical at some points. Obviously there are more characters than these three but I don’t want to reveal too much.
Once I got past the fact that I haven’t read any of the other books, I really enjoyed this book. I did find it slow in some spots but overall I would recommend it to anyone who likes Meg Cabot or books that deals with ghosts. There are twists in this book that the reader will not expect and if Meg Cabot plans on writing more for this series, I will gladly read them.
