Review: Remembrance (The Mediator #7) by Meg Cabot

Book Blurb:


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.

What happens when old ghosts come back to haunt you?

If you’re a mediator, you might have to kick a little ass.

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?

My Review:

5 Out Of 5 Stars

Genre: Audiobook, Ghosts, Mystery, Romance, Supernatural--

I absolutely love this series and I had to read this one as well. I can 100% say that I am not disappointed in this follow-up, my only complaint is that I want more. I don't want this to be the end. Where else can I get the snark that I have come to expect and love ever so much without more Suz? I found myself laughing at the most random of times due to her commentary or the complicated situations she finds herself in. Hands down though, my favorite parts of the story dealt with Flopsy, Mopsy and Cottontail, her triplet "nieces". Those girls were hysterical trouble and I could not believe what they could do. If I can't get more Suz and Jesse, can I at least have a spin off with them as teens.

And mentioning Suz and Jesse, I loved the ending. I really was uncertain what would happen because of the build-up in the story, but I really could not have been happier. If you wan a happily ever after, or at least the start of one, pick this book. up. Things were wrapped up nicely, so I don't necessarily need more, but I want more. I would gladly read more from this series (or the 1-800-where are you series hint hint) but I am afraid that this is the end.

Audiobooks are usually hit or miss with me, but I can hands down say that this was the best audiobook that I have listened to probably ever. All the characters had unique voices, and the narrators tones were spot on (the snark was strong with Suz, just like it should be). I could easily visualize every part of the story, and I was always completely engaged. I never once zoned out like I have previously done while listening to an audio book. I would gladly listen to more books read by this narrator.
