In this latest "Mediator" novel, Susannah Simon has begun her first job as a guidance counselor intern at a Catholic school. She has the ability to see souls of the dead who have unfinished business on earth, and she has helped them pass from this world to the next since she was a toddler. Early in the novel, Susannah sees Lucia, a ghost who is protecting a student at her school, and uncovers that Lucia had been murdered. While Susannah works on solving the murder, she and Jesse, a ghost who haunted her childhood home for 150 years and whom she brought back to life, are making plans to marry. There is an abundance of characters for readers to follow, many of whom are also mediators. One of these, a high school nemesis, is planning to tear down Susannah's childhood home, convinced that this will unleash some unknown malevolent behavior from Jesse. Susannah is a feisty character, prone to swearing and imploring Jesse to consummate their relationship (he wants to wait until they are married) and adept at navigating her way through the obstacles thrown in her way. VERDICT Hand this to fans of the series and to those who enjoy a fast-paced story full of twists and turns.—Jane Ritter, Mill Valley School District, CA --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
Meg Cabot is a fabulous author.” (USA Today)
“entertaining, funny, and fast-paced [...] A fun and satisfying grown-up update on Suze’s life.” (Kirkus Reviews)
“Modern, witty banter abounds in the newest book in Cabot’s entertaining Mediator series. Ghost Mediator Suze Simon is back and as sassy as ever! Amusing storytelling with colorfully distinctive characters of both the human and ghost varieties and an engaging plot are the highlights of this fabulous story.” (RT Book Reviews)
“This novel stands well enough on its own, but a desire to read the whole series is irrefutable [...] Cabot’s great writing, as always, is captivating from the beginning, repiete with fun and mysterious personalities. Fans of the series will be rewarded for their patience to hear from these characters again.” (Library Journal)

Speaking of Paul, he's back causing trouble as usual. I've always gotten a kick out of the dynamic between him and Suze, and it's a blast here. I loved how it all played out with Suze entangling him in her nefarious plan. Also, I can't spoil it, but there is a fun surprise involving him. This was kind of like a high school reunion in that we get to catch up with all the people from our youth and marvel over how they turned out. Some are just what we expected, and some we could have never predicted. Either way, it's fun to see them.
The ghost in this one was the most memorable one in the series, apart from Jesse. I teared up in the end with how both sad and beautiful it was. Of course, we also have what we've all been waiting for--the wedding of Suze and Jesse. And sexy times! Nothing explicit, of course, because Jesse would never allow that.
I really enjoyed this new installment of Suze and Jesse's story. Like I blew through it so quickly, that it made me realize that maybe I'm just not reading the books I actually want to anymore. Whenever I pitch reading this series to someone I explain, "it's kinda like Buffy, but like with ghosts." I stand by that explanation. Suze has an attitude and sometimes she does really stupid stuff, but that's why I enjoy reading about her so much!
I think the main thing I like about this series is that it's a part-paranormal, part-investigation novel. In order to help the ghosts move on, Suze has to first figure out why they are still here, and sometimes the ghosts are just not helpful. Like Lucia the little girl ghost that Suze tries to help in this novel. A little violent ghost that has plenty of reasons to be so angry about her death. I do like that Suze really can't do everything on her own and she enlists her research team (CeeCee) and the muscle (Paul Slater begrudgingly) so she can solve the issue of what is keeping Lucia on this plane.
I actually love that Cabot makes it pretty clear that we were never supposed to like Paul. He's such a jerk, and that's really clear is this novel with him trying to knock down Suze's old house that may effect Jesse! I hate that dude, so I'm really glad in the end of this novel everything works out for Suze and Jesse.
There were a couple things about the adult Suze that made me really like her. First off all, in this novel Suze is the one that is more interested in sex than Jesse. Of course Jesse wants to abide by his beliefs of not having sex before marriage, which makes sense due to his upbringing and the time in which he was alive. I kinda of love that the woman is the one interested in sex, because we don't see that a lot. Even though woman like sex too! So I really appreciated that being included. The other thing I loved about her was the swearing. Dude, I swear a lot, like I just can't help myself anymore, so I loved to see another woman around my age swearing up a storm and everyone getting mad at her. That is pretty much my life, so I could totally relate.
I will admit that the plot is not that different from the other books in the series. There's a ghost Suze has to help, Paul tries to mess up her relationship with Jesse, and Suze has to figure everything out. But in all honestly, that's what I wanted out of this novel. I wanted to come back to these characters I loved and read them in action again. If Meg Cabot writes anymore novels about Suze, I will buy them all.
I'm rating this as five stars, not because it's perfect--there was still a lot that grated the nerves--but because it's such an improvement, while keeping everything that I loved about the series when I was young.
