High Stakes - Meg Cabot (2001)

I continued reading this series and I think this book is better than the first.

I enjoyed this book more than the first one because I thought it had a more interesting plot, with an intriguing plot twist which the first book lacked. My favourite character in this book was probably Jesse, I thought it was good how we started to see more of him and to see his character develop some jealously and love for animals. I would recommend this book to any teenage girl because it encompasses many different genres, you don't have to read previous ones to be able to read any of the books in this series either.

A screaming ghost wakes Suze up in the night because she wants her to tell "Red" that it wasn't his fault and he didn't kill her. Suze thinks she means Red Beaumont, a prominent local businessman who turns out to have a very dark past with all his competitors going missing. When Suze questions Red about this, it turns out he wasn't the one who had been killing the people, it had been his brother Marcus, who intends to kill Suze. Before he can kill her though, Jesse intervenes and then all the ghosts of people Marcus has killed pull him into purgatory. It turns out the woman was Andy's previous wife and David's mum, and Suze was to tell David the message because he felt guilty that they pulled the plug on her.
