Meet Susannah Simon: she's a typical teenage girl who just happens to be a ghost-hunter...oh, and she's also dead-over-heels for Jesse - the sexiest spook ever! But can this girl get her ghost? In "Grave Doubts", Suze has to contend with fellow ghost-hunter, Paul Slater, who gives her a deadly ultimatum. Unless she dates him, he'll send Jesse into the afterlife - for good. Paul may be totally hot, but Susannah Simon will not be bossed around. Let the games begin...In "Heaven Sent", all Suze's dreams have come true - she's finally dating the most gorgeous ghost of all time, Jesse! But when her creepy admirer threatens to travel back in time and stop Jesse from dying, Suze is distraught. Will her new boyfriend choose life or love?

What I thought:

Being the last books in the series I expected a few things to happen that would shake up the story. I mainly expected Jesse to make a ground breaking revelation that would leave everyones jaw unhinged but I suppose I wasn’t disappointed. As usual we had some very action packed scenes which are my favourite parts of all the books but I finally decided that I really don’t like Suze. At the start I liked her of the series and then in books 3 and 4 I was on the fence but apart from her ability to see ghosts she isn’t that interesting and she’s quickly gone from independent to boy-obsessed.

But I hate to leave a decent series unfinished so if you’ve read the last few books you might as well read this as well because they are quite entertaining.

Rating: 3/5


  1. I think heaven sent is a really good book and shows real imagination
    for teenagers. I came across this book and started reading I couldn't
    get enough. now I have the whole set and I find them all great books

  2. I would like to write when I'm older and if you
    would have any tips I would be glad to read them.

    1. Well it's good you're starting young!

      I write purely as a hobby and I think it's great that you'd like to be a writer. Do you want to blog or were you thinking more on the lines of writing books?

      Which ever one it is, my biggest tip would be to write as much as often as you can because your writing will only get better.
