TO BE honest, I was not too impressed with the cover of this book. But I was pleasantly surprised to find Remembrance rather engaging.
Author Cabot handles the supernatural with flair and humour, interspersed with action and suspense.
This novel deals with ghost whisperer Susannah “Suze” Simon who communicates with spirits and helps them ‘go into the light’. Suze is engaged to Dr Jesse De Silva, who happens to be a former spirit whom she brought back to life.
However, all she wants to do now is to make a good impression at her first job. As a wannabe guidance counsellor at her alma mater, Suze is prepared to kick some ass if vengeful spirits are around, but she gets more than she bargained for.
Besides juggling a sophomore haunted by the powerful spirit of a child, Suze also has to deal with an old overzealous admirer who threatens to destroy her future happiness. The pace is fast moving and fun enough to keep you reading. Although it deals with the supernatural, it is not of the ‘clutch your heart’ terror category. Rather, it is amusing and even touching.
This is a good read to pass a dull afternoon. – K.K. Wong
