Many (most?) people prefer to start a chapter on a right hand facing/odd number page, which sounds to be your current default setting.
From the Book Pallet flyout Options - toggle the appropriate choice. In your case "Continue From Previous Document"
If there are other blank pages, you may have an empty text frame at the end of a document/chapter.
Yes, my chapters start on the right hand facing side. I didn't know about "continue from previous document" check box, I now have that checked. I just figured that autopage numbering meant that it would have automatically update across the documents as well.

It's also possible your style for the chapter titiel has a keep option set to start on next odd page.
For what it's worth, Daniel's comment about starting a new chapter on an odd page is right on. Most users find it very disconcerting if chapter starts switch back and forth, and I wouldn't do it unless you have a page count problem.
The chapter style title shouldn't be the problem because it is only happening on some chapters even though all the chapter titles are using the same style. And yes, I put the start of each chapter on the right hand page.
Well, what are you asking, exactly? Are you saying you want ID to move the chapter start to the left page if the previous chapter ends on a right, or that somehow you want magically a new blank page with no number to appear and the chapter start on the right should be the next page number (thereby switcing even numbers to the right in midstream)?
If chapters start on the right hand page, then they need odd numbers under normal circumstances. If the previous cahpter happens to end also on a right hand page, YOU need to add a blank page to the chapter.
Having chapters start on the right hand side was never a problem. I just dragged the first page of each chapter to the right so they would start there. My question in this post was about how I can get ID to know what page to start on between the different ID files using the book feature. This post was never a right/left problem it was about how I can get the page numbering to work between the individual documents. That problem was been fixed. I just had to check "continue from previous document."
