Release Date” April 1, 2014
There’s just something about Clare. Apart from the ghosts …
When her eccentric aunt passes away, no-nonsense accountant Clare Cermac inherits more than just a small fortune. She receives the gift of communicating with ghosts. While Clare may not believe in spirits, it’s hard to overlook the shadowy talking dog appearing on her bed or spectral cowboys tipping their hats to her in the streets of Denver. And when she locks eyes with sexy—and living—Zach Slade, there’s certainly no ignoring him either.
A former deputy sheriff, Zach is leaving a painful past behind in Montana for a new life in Denver as a private investigator, a job that has him crossing paths with beautiful Clare. Not that she minds. After the restless ghost of a Wild West gunman demands her assistance, Clare finds herself needing Zach more and more—and not just for help.
Ghost Seer by Robin D. Owens is the first book in her new Ghost Seer series. I love Robin’s Celta series, and was excited to see she would be writing a new series. Ghost Seer is a modern day contemporary paranormal story. I guess the title tells it all.
Clare is our heroine, and she is having a difficult time trying to cope with a major change in her life. Clare, who was an accountant, has inherited a house and millions from her aunt. But that is not all she inherited….she now sees ghosts. In fact, when we meet Clare, she is desperately trying to ignore a ghost dog, named Enzo, who follows her every move. Enzo, who is adorable, for a ghost, of course talks to Clare. Though it is disturbing for Clare trying to get used to seeing ghosts, we have a wonderful time enjoying Enzo. Clare has to make a decision, if she cannot cope with seeing ghosts, her life will deteriorate and she will eventually die early. Will Clare be able to accept her calling and rise to the challenge?
Zach Slade is a former cop, who moves to Denver, as his career is over from a disabling leg injury, after he was shot on the job. Zach accepts a job with a private investigation firm. He meets Clare, and is immediately attracted to her. Zach does have some physic gift, though he refuses to accept this possibility. He does not see or believe in ghosts; but he does see crows, who show up in various numbers, giving him warnings. Will Zach be able to accept the fact that Clare sees ghosts or his own physic sight?
What follows is a different, interesting, fun storyline, with a bit of everything. There is the slow to build, but hot romance between Zach and Clare. A wonderful world building by Owens, that includes, suspense, mystery, danger, excitement, and quite a few humorous parts. A lot of the interesting parts revolves around Clare trying to solve issues presented to her by some ghosts, which requires much research into the past, and has a western theme in old Colorado. As Enzo constantly reminds Clare, her job is to help the ghost move on from being in limbo to the afterlife. The last half of the book was exciting, as the danger escalates.
Ghost Seer was a fun read, different then what I am used to with Robin. But Robin Owens is a wonderful writer, and she proves it by writing a completely different type of story, and does it very well. I look forward to reading the next book in this series.
