Where to get:
The last place Suze Simon expects to find herself during Valentine’s Day is a cemetery. But that’s what happens when you’re a mediator – cursed with the “gift” of communicating with the dead.
That’s how Suze has ended up at the graves of a pair of NCDPs - Non-Compliant Deceased Persons – whose drama didn’t end with death. It’s Suze’s job to make sure they move on—for good.
But the NCDPs aren’t the only ones with problems. The reason Suze is spending her Valentine’s Day with the undead instead of her boyfriend, Jesse, is because he’s having so much trouble adjusting to life after death . . . not surprising, considering the fact that he used to be an NCDP himself, and now his girlfriend busts his former kind for a living, while he tries to cure his kind of what used to ail him.
Can Suze use her mediating skills to propose a mutual resolution, and bring all these young lovers together - including Jesse and herself - especially on the night Saint Valentine declared sacred to romance?
Or will she end up alone—and possibly undead—herself?
Oh how I have missed this series! I know I reread it a few weeks ago, and I'm really glad that I did, but this new addition just made me all the more happy.
Being only 128 pages, Proposal is short but a lot of fun. I love getting a preview of Suze's life since we last left her in Twilight. We get updates on what her family, friends, Father Dom, and she and Jesse have been up to. Some facts I found surprising and some facts I nodded along with thinking, "Well that makes sense."
Suze is still mediating and as sarcastic and snarky as ever. She and Jesse have an adorable relationship and I found it endearing the Jesse is still hanging on to some of his older ways and traditions - much to Suze's dismay.
Proposal is the perfect introduction to Remembrance and (reintroduction?) to Suze and Jesse. Even if you're not a fan of short stories, you're definitely going to want to read this novel. Plus, the proposal itself is beyond grin worthy.
