Suze Simon returns. This time it’s summer and she has a job at the local resort working as a babysitter. Lo and behold, she meets another mediator. This time, it’s an eight-year-old. Who’s terrified of ghosts.
At the same time, mysterious Jesse is featured when the ghosts of the woman he was supposed to marry and her eventual husband come back to try and stop Suze from letting Jesse’s remains get dug up from where they had been buried in her backyard.
There’re obviously some more mysteries that need to be solved and a few loose ends were left dangling, so there’s room to expand on the series. But at the same time, it’s like the formula for the books has been the same every time:
- A ghost visits Suze.
- Suze tries to mediate the ghost by force even after her mediator pal Father Dominic expressly tells her not to.
- Someone comes to Suze’s aid and prevents her from being killed because she did something really stupid that would have gotten her killed.
- The ghost moves on.
And sometime in between all that there’s always a boy pining after Suze, even though she insists over and over again that no guys are ever into her.
Something about Suze just makes me think that I probably wouldn’t like her in real life. She seems reckless and a little selfish in that she disregards the people who care about her and puts her own self at risk. Not that that will stop me from reading the rest of the books in the series though. Next up is “Haunted.”
