Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

A tinge of the supernatural flavors the latest entry from our leading practitioner of the damsel-in-distress school of suspense. Just what is the mysterious presence that seems to haunt Menley Nichols and baby Hannah in their spectacular rented Cape Cod mansion? Menley is still trying to recover from the horror of her two-year-old son Bobby's death on the railroad crossing. Lawyer husband Adam is too busy dashing to and from New York, and defending a local hunk suspected of doing away with his wealthy bride, to be much help. And so the presence moves in on Menley, Rebecca style, with eerie middle-of-the-night sound effects and rocking cradles. As always with Clark, there are several plots going on at once, which are miraculously blended and resolved in the finale; people to watch out for here include a pretty waitress in a local inn and a real estate lady who is an old flame of Adam's. Clark opens herself to charges of excessive authorial legerdemain by employing many narrative points of view, including those of at least two guilty parties (without ever offering a clue as to their guilt), but that's a quibble. The denouement is reasonably pulse-pounding, if a little strained. All in all, it's a reliable enough outing for the countless Clark aficionados, though it seems, perhaps in sync with its historic setting, rather more old-fashioned than usual. 750,000 first printing; Literary Guild main selection; S & S audio.

From Kirkus Reviews

Everything you'd expect from the reigning queen of prepubescent female suspense: A bereaved young mother battles demons from a recent mystery, from the distant past, and from her own fearful imaginings about the impending fate of her infant daughter. Two years after her son Bobby is killed in a collision with a train, children's author Menley Nichols, still haunted by anxiety attacks about Hannah, the daughter whose birth reunited her with her estranged lawyer husband, Adam, is vacationing with them in Remember House in the Cape Cod town of Chatham. What seems like a remake of Gaslight--Menley starts to hear Bobby calling to her, friends and neighbors report seeing her in places she doesn't remember being--heats up when Adam accepts an unseasonable client: Scott Covey, the penniless charmer accused of drowning his moneyed wife, Vivian, in a scuba accident. Chatham has already closed ranks against Scott, who evidently carried on a romance with main-chance local waitress Tina Aroldi till shortly before his own (very recent) wedding: Only Adam's old friend, realtor Elaine Atkins, and Scott's neighbor Henry Sprague back up his story of mutual devotion. As Adam chases leads that might help clear Scott, Menley, egged on by cryptic hints from Henry's Alzheimer-ravaged historian wife, Phoebe, immerses herself in another mystery: the riddle of why Mehitabel Freeman, for whom Remember House was first built 300 years before, went to her death denying the charge of adultery (though the other man in the case admitted it) that allowed her seafaring husband to take her own baby away. With such a tangle of villainous plots, you'd expect as many loose ends as in I'll Be Seeing You (1993). Miraculously, though, Clark, working like a steam engine, pulls everything together in a story that suits her gifts for compelling narrative (and her pulpish limitations) perfectly. Readers more interested in mystery than menace may well find this her best book yet. (Literary Guild main selection; author tour) -- Copyright ©1994, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.

5.0 out of 5 stars Remember Me July 2 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Menley Nichols, the author of a popular historical fiction novel series for children, and her husband, a handsome and successful lawyer named Adam, have been having marriage difficulties lately. As Menley struggles to recover from the horrific death of her two-year-old baby son Bobby at a railroad crossing a few years ago, she begins to suffer from horribly vivid flashbacks and frightening anxiety attacks. But soon after they decided it would be better if they became separated, Menley discovered she was pregnant, and their marriage began succeeding once again.

It is now the summer, and Menley has given birth to a beautiful baby three-month-old daughter named Hannah. In order to perhaps help take some anxiety off of Menley's mind, in the hopes of not having another nervous breakdown, Adam decides to take Menley and Hannah on a summer-long vacation to where he spent his own wonderful childhood summers, in Cape Cod, in the historic on-the-sea Remember House, first built in 1703, recommended to Adam by Elaine Atkins, a prosperous real-estate agent with her own realty agency and Adam's long-time friend. Adam and Menley discover that they both love the historical beauty of Remember House, and also find that Hannah enjoys Remember House, as well.

But soon the tranquil summertime mood of Cape Cod is broken by the death of Vivian Carpenter-Covey, the extremely wealthy wife of a relatively poor---when compared to Vivian---but movie-star handsome husband, Scott Covey. The Carpenters were always a family of much opulence, but Vivian did not fulfill her parents expectations by being kicked out of boarding school, experimenting briefly with drugs, and not attending college. But her trust fund contains over five million dollars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wicked Wicked Good! May 20 2003
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is a great book! I borrowed it from my friend, who is totally into a mix of mystery and romance, and this book suits her needs. Shari is a teen, with a pretty normal life. Until she attends a party at her friend's house, at which a seance is preformed, using Shari as a channel. Shari becomes frightened when her dead science partner, Peter, uses her to talk to his old friends. Shaken by the experience, Shari retreats to the balcony, where she is pushed off, by one of the few party guests. Next thing she knows, Shari is at home in bed, but neither her mother, nor her brother Jimmy, can hear her. Then a mysterious phone call comes, causing her mother to break down in tears and her brother to go white in the face. When the family reaches the hospital, Shari finds herself on the mortuary slab...Everyone thinks it was a succide, but Shari can't cross over until she finds out who murdered her. Now with the help of Peter, Shari must figure out who done it, by following her friends around, and entering their dreams. Shari must also stop the murderer from killing again, and this time it may be closer to her heart than her own body! Read this book! It was excellent!

5.0 out of 5 stars Remember Me : UNFORGETTABLE Nov. 10 2002
By Corin
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Shari Cooper is a typical teen in a typical town. She's good looking, has a best friend and a handsome boyfriend. Some would say she has it all. A wonderful brother, a rich family--even a Ferrari. Yeah, Shari's life is going pretty good... until the night of Beth Palmone's birthday party.
"Big Beth", as Jo calls her. The big-breasted tart who recently has been showing more than a passing interest in Shari's man. Not that Dan, her superficial boyfriend, seems to mind. Why even go to the party? No. Why should she let them ruin her good time? The others will be there. Jo Foulton, her best and oldest friend, an intelligent girl who is obsessed with the occult; Amanda Parish, her brother's girlfriend--they aren't very close, but she's willing to try being friends for Jimmy's sake. Then there's Jeff Nichols--the brother of her old crush Peter, who died two years ago in a motorcycle accident. The party couldn't be that bad...
She had no idea.

The bash winds down, until only the small circle of friends remain. Tensions are high, and people say and do things they probably shouldn't. Then Jo has an idea, and the seance begins... and something goes horribly wrong. Overwhelmed by the evening, Shari retreats to the balcony to collect her thoughts. Suddenly, she's falling. Headfirst into the concrete, four stories down. Did she jump? Or had she been pushed? If so, who was responsible? Could it have been planned by more than one person?
Shari doesn't get the chance to find out--at least, not in the conventional way. Shari Cooper is dead. Almost everyone assumes it was a suicide, and they begin to move on with their own lives... However, Shari isn't resting. In fact, she isn't even gone. Invisible, inaudible--in every sense of the word, a ghost. Unbelieveable, but true. She still exists!

Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was the first Christopher Pike novel I read from cover to cover. And it is certainly one of the most memorable. To this day, when I see a large building, like a condominium complex, with balconies on the sides, I think of Remember Me. For years I couldn't get this book out of my head, but I've been known to obsess to the extreme. All in all, it was very enlightening and poignant. The characters were all fun. Shari was a very witty narrator that kept my attention. Her best friend Jo was also quite the character. My favorite character though was Jeff Nichols, and he wasn't in any of the other books in the series. Basically the plot revolves around Shari Ann Cooper, who at the age of eighteen must face the ultimate inconvenience---death. And she was having such a good time, or so she realizes after it is too late, which tends to be the way it always is. On the other side, she meets up with an old friend, Peter (the brother of Jeff Nichols, though how the two are blood related is beyond me; genetics is weird). She begs him to help her solve her murder, for she knows that she didn't commit suicide as most everyone believes. There is just one little problem though. As mentioned before, she's dead. That means no one can hear her, see her or sense her presence. This is a simple summary, but the book is about so much more. It is very spiritual for a young adult horror book, and I wouldn't even call it horror, though it is suspenseful. And it is tragic. It is not until Shari dies that she finally discovers the truth about who she is, in more ways than one. Once dead, she has the power to finally see herself honestly, but first she must confront the greatest horror of all; the Shadow (aka herself). There is a little incest in this book (unintentional), but I won't get into that. Read more ›
