Overview

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.

Publishers Weekly
02/17/2014
RITA winner Owens, best known for her Celta’s HeartMates futuristic romance series, is gunning hard to broaden her audience with the first Ghost Seer paranormal contemporary, featuring cowboys, cops, and outlaws. It’s a notably successful experiment, combining much-loved character types with touches of humor and sizzle. Montana deputy sheriff Zach Slade has been injured and embittered in a shooting and needs a fresh start. Clare Cermak, a buttoned-up Denver accountant, has just inherited the estate of her psychic great-aunt, along with the ability to see ghosts herself. The ghosts want Clare to solve their mysteries so they can pass on; Zach just happens to have the necessary skill set, along with a job offer from a Denver private investigation firm. The blend of history and investigation makes the mystery persuasive, and the chemistry between Clare and Zach is well scripted. Owens knows just how to press her readers’ buttons, and they’ll love every minute of it. Agent: Deidre Knight, Knight Agency. (Apr.)

★ 04/15/2014
Owens leaves her HeartMate Celta world and tumbles back to Earth, Denver to be exact, in a whole new paranormal series. This time the setting is Western, the protagonists are psychically gifted, the action and banter are lively, and the mystery and danger—and the ghosts—are real. Zach Slade has never thought his crow-related "hunches" were anything special, and rational accountant Clare Cermac has never believed in ghosts. When Clare inherits her Great Aunt Sandra's fortune and starts seeing spirits (and they talk to her!) and Zach sees them as well, the two are forced to reconsider and with the help of a clever older woman and a lovable ghostly dog begin to accept their unearthly gifts. VERDICT A practical CPA and a sheriff-turned-reluctant PI struggle to come to terms with their new talents as they are swept up in a nonstop romantic whirl. A spectacular start to what promises to be a terrific series. Owens (Heart Fortune) lives in the Denver area.

    *This book was provided to me by NetGalley.




    I am no stranger to the writings of Robin D. Owens.  I discovered her Celta series several years ago and absolutely love them.  Her “fams” in particular are wonderful.




    I was delighted to discover she was starting a contemporary series with Ghost Seer.




    Clare was thrilled to inherit a fortune, including a beautiful old home, from her weird Aunt Sandra, but was not happy at all when she found out there was a catch.  Along with the money came a gift . . . the ability to see and interact with ghosts.




    Clare is an accountant.  She is very practical and rational.  She does not believe in ghosts!




    Unfortunately, this is not a gift that can be returned.  If she does not help the ghosts “cross over,” she will either weaken and die or go insane.




    She is trapped!




    Zach is an ex-cop, but only because he was badly injured in a shooting and unfit for active duty.  He does not want to be a private cop because he has always served the public.  He doesn’t want to only help people who can pay for his help.




    Oh yeah, he doesn’t believe in ghosts either.




    So, of course, they meet and are immediately attracted to each other.  Clare definitely needs Zach’s help, but he’s not sure he wants to get involved with a crazy woman.




    Zach and Clare are obviously the main characters, but my favorite character is Enzo - a ghost dog that used to belong to weird Aunt Sandra.  His purpose is to help Clare learn her new job of ghost seer.  That’s when he’s not chasing squirrel essence in the park of course.




    I loved this book and cannot wait for the sequel, Ghost Layer to be released in September.




    My only criticism is I thought the sex scenes (and they were really good sex scenes) went on too long.  I was ready for the plot to move on.

    Ghost Seer by Robin D. Owens is the first book in her new Ghost

    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. Jack 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.

    Potential to be great

    This was a great story. I didnt like the characters though... the thoughts process of the lead male was just dumb ! Out of nowhere he would think things like "my dick just twitched" trashy and no class!

    I highly recommend this book. I thought it was great.

    I have never been much of a romance reader before. However, Robin has got me hooked on her books. I did not care for the cover on this book. I don't feel it protrays what the book is about at all. The story line is great and contains terrific characters. My only problem is when does the next one come out?

    The first in a new series - but a complete story in itself - thi

    The first in a new series - but a complete story in itself - this contemporary paranormal tale is a well-written, delightful read.

    Clare Cermak is the typical CPA (thinking in dollars and cents, with common sense) who inherits an unexpected "gift" from her Aunt: the ability to see ghosts of the old west, and to help them move on. Her first reaction? Make sure it's not a brain tumor, and see a psychologist - LOVE it!

    Zach Slade is the wounded ex-cop, forced to retire from public service, a by-the-rules man who isn't into the "Woo-woo" stuff... and if Zach's hunches are correct, or he counts crows, or hears things he shouldn't - well it's just cop instinct or luck, right?

    The transition and growth of these two, well-rounded characters is beautifully written, incorporating humor, loss, mystery, fear, grief, regret, acceptance and redemption. I love the fact that Clare has enough self-respect to walk away rather than put up with dishonesty or half-acceptance. The girl next door (well, kinda!) is a strong woman who will survive whatever life throws at her. Zach has had his share of pain, and he must learn to accept the changes life has thrown his way, too. Together - well, there's enough heat and sizzle to keep the pages turning long after you should be abed, yourself!

    I eagerly await the next book in the series, Ghost Layer, to be released in September. I want to see and hear from Clare and Zach (and Enzo) again, and hope this is just the beginning of a long - and fascinating - series.

    Could not put the book down! I got this book as a gift and I just loved it. From one moment to the next, Robin D. Owens book captures you and you fall into the story, and it is so good, you have to read it to the end in one sitting. Yep, could not put the book down. I love this book. Can't wait to read book #2 of the series. I gave this a 5 stars because this is the best book I have read this year. I believe it is a must read.

    A fascinating start to Robin's new series, with quirky character

    A fascinating start to Robin's new series, with quirky characters, funny dialogue and surprising twists!




    I'm so glad I picked up Ghost Seer, the 1st in Robin's new series! I am a fan of Robin's books and I love paranormals... so it was a given I couldn't pass this one by. 




    Ghost Seer is certainly a fascinating start with two interesting main characters and a multitude of quirky side-kicks including a long-dead labrador retriever named Enzo. Clare is our heroine, an accountant, and straight as an arrow until her eccentric gypsy Aunt Sandra died and left her estate to Clare. Zach is our hero, ultra-conventional, an honest man who was injured on the job and is now floundering trying to find his way since his injuries preclude him from continuing to be a cop. There's loads of funny dialogue, suspense and twists as both Clare and Zach are confronted with characters and situations out of their comfort level while they are also coping with their attraction to each other. 




    Robin's writing is polished as always. I'm "dying" to read where Robin will take the series from here...




    4 stars!!!!!
