I guess I'm still reading this series? It's junk food but it's still food so ( )

What would you do when the ghost of a woman shows up in your bedroom and tells you to "tell Red he didn't kill me"? You'd tell him, right? Especially if that was the only way to get her to stop screaming and yelling at you all the time. So Suze asks around to find out if anyone knows "Red" and finds out he's a well-known pillar of the community, one with a very hot son she starts dating. Oh, and Red also might be a vampire because he keeps staring at Suze's neck and his assistant does too when he asks if Red hurt her.

Jesse, the ghost who lives in her bedroom, seems jealous over her dating Tad. That's great by Suze because she's falling for him in a big way, even though there's no way they can be together. But Tad's nice, and she gave him poison oak, so she's willing to see if there's something there, even though she's busily trying to figure out if his father murdered a bunch of people or just ate them for a vampiric snack. Red isn't the Red she was looking for so it takes a while for her to deliver the message but when she does it's worth it. ( )

(It might have been freshman year of college, but who's counting. Plus I need to refresh my memory to prepare for the 7th book). ( )
