In this eerie and suspenseful YA, a teen girl discovers what connects her to the hotel she calls home as horrifying visions lead her to the truth.

Nell Martin is moving again, this time to the Winslow Grand Hotel, built in 1878. As Nell is settling in, strange things begin to happen. Doors lock of their own accord, writing appears on bathroom walls--and most horrifying of all--visions of a dead boy permeate her waking life. Thinking it was her mind playing tricks on her, she soon finds the past and the present colliding as she learns horrific details of a murder that happened at the hotel in 1905 involving a girl named Lea.

Nell and a mysterious bellboy must relive that day in hopes of finally breaking a curse that imprisons them both. And Nell discovers what truly links her to the history of the Winslow Grand Hotel.

My Review

REMEMBER ME is a story that slips from past to present as a mystery unfolds. Set in an elegant hotel with a protagonist that readers will easily connect with who must figure out how to make things right before it's too late. An overall entertaining read full of romance and danger.

I really loved Nell's character. I liked Lea okay, but I felt she was more fake and not as genuine as I did think it was wrong to do what she was doing. I also didn't like her circumstances as much as she had to deal with abuse and a bleak future whereas Nell had a loving father and was an average teen, which made her easier to relate to. I also really liked Alec. He's played the boy-next-door fabulously, but was also much more than that. The other characters were interesting and played their roles, which were all fairly minor.

The whole mystery and how it unfolded was intriguing. I like how the intensity of the story grew as what happened was slowly revealed. I thought for a horror story it could have been more chilling. I could buy the situation, but I did have issues with why or how it happened. It's never explained. I thought there would be something about a Russian witch or something the the hotel's owner or someone needing to be redeemed. I can't really say much without spoiling things, but I basically just had to accept it without reason.

The romance was sweet in the beginning and I actually would have preferred it stayed there, but it gets pretty involved and is a strong aspect of the story - particularly in the past. I would have liked more of a drive behind everything instead of it being a forbidden romance. I think I still wanted the situation to have some reasoning behind it and I'm still wanting that at the end of this story.

In the end, was it what I wished for? I enjoyed this story for the most part. I did have a few issues, but liked the characters and was intrigued by the plot. Romantic suspense and horror readers may enjoy this one.
