When the nineteenth-century ghost of Maria de Silva wakes her up in the middle of the night, Suze knows this is no ordinary visitation--and not just from the knife at her throat, either. In life, Maria was the fiancée of Jesse--the same Jesse who was murdered 150 years before. The same Jesse Suze is in love with.

Maria threatens Suze: The backyard construction must cease. Suze has a pretty good idea what--or rather, who--Maria doesn't want found. But in solving Jesse's murder, will Suze end up losing him forever?

BOTTOM-LINE:
Oh, no, it's ghosts again!
.
PLOT OR PREMISE:
Suzannah is a mediator -- she helps ghosts move on from this plane to the next. But when she's not embracing her sixth sense, she's earning money as a staff babysitter at a hotel/resort and dreaming about Jesse who haunts her current home. Then she meets trouble in the form of spoiled brat Jack who can also see ghosts, but doesn't know that ghosts are actually real and is instead three steps away from a nervous breakdown. Suze has to help him figure out his own role with ghosts, at the same time that she tries to figure out more of the mystery with Jesse's past life.
.
WHAT I LIKED:
I really liked the idea of finding newbies who don't know what they are supposed to do when it comes to ghosts -- hey, didn't they see the movie? I also still like the fact that Suze can actually interact with the ghosts (i.e. fight with them). The backstory for Jesse was cool, and knowing that Suze can move to another plane at least temporarily is really a good omen for future books. The interesting addition of negative mediators to counter-balance is very Tru Calling-ish, and we'll have to see how that plays out in future books.
.
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE:
Some of the repeated teenage angst might sit well with teenage readers, but it gets really repetitive fast for older readers.
.
DISCLOSURE:
I received no compensation, not even a free copy, in exchange for this review. I am not personal friends with the author, nor do I follow her on social media.

A good, fun read, even if the main character is a bit one dimensional.
