Continuing with Because Readings Boo-calious blog event, Spooktacular, today the theme is ‘ghosts’.
In truth, I haven’t read that many ghostly books or series. It’s not that I don’t love the woo-woo and clank of chains, but I have a low tolerance for getting spooked out. I can read ghost stories, but they can’t be the real hair-raising sort.
Here’s one series that falls within my comfort zone: The Ghost Seer Series by Robin D. Owens
I was frustrated and amused in turn with this unlikely heroine who inherited the family’s rare gypsy magic that allowed her to see and communicate with ghosts with the help of her spirit familiar and her detective boyfriend.
See the blurb:
There’s just something about Clare. Apart from the ghosts…
When her eccentric aunt passes away, no-nonsense accountant Clare Cermak 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.
