Book Review: Ghost Layer (Ghost Seer #2) by Robin D. Owens

Ghost Layer (Ghost Seer #2)
by Robin D. Owens
What lies beneath…

Clare Cermak’s adjusting to a new man in her life—and a lot of ghosts. The passing of Clare’s aunt gave way to a sizeable inheritance of not only money, but also the ability to communicate with the dead. At the same time, she met Zach Slade, a private detective with a rough past, and just like Clare, he’s not yet ready to accept her gift—or his own.

But Clare has another matter to look into. A multimillionaire needs her help after relocating an old ghost town to his mountain estate. The bones of a murdered prospector are making nightly appearances in his guests’ beds. When the gold miner’s ghost contacts Clare, she promises to help find the name of his killer—but someone doesn't want the past revealed and might find her first.

Ghost Layer picks up just a very brief time after book one, Ghost Seer, ends. Zach is returning from a brief business trip and Clare has been busy setting up her new home and continues to come to terms with and accept her gift of sight. They are both insecure in their feelings for each other, feeling very fragile, and trying to be cool about the relationship in fear of being hurt.

Well as life would have it, no sooner than they get together Clare gets a call from Zach's new boss asking for a meeting with a client regarding a haunting in an old ghost town and up pops the ghost of a gold miner who is asking her to find his killer. Thus the adventure begins bringing attempts on Clare's life and spookly pranks.

I enjoyed this installment, although it was a bit darker than book one. Clare and Zach resolve some issues and there is plenty of action culminating in a satisfying resolution. Once again the writing is wonderfully done and a new host of very colorful characters make an appearance, some are even see-through. There is also a great afterward from the author regarding some of the research for the writing of this book. I would recommend this book for those who enjoy a ghostly tale with colorful characters and a bit of romance thrown in with the action. I received this book from NetGalley.
