Reviewed by: Roxanne


When her aunt died, level-headed accountant Clare Cermak inherited a fortune—as well as a phantom dog and the power to help ghosts move on. Her new gift led her to Zach Slade, a sexy private investigator with a unique psychic gift of his own, and the man who’s slowly opening her heart. But as they work toward building a future together, a sinister threat emerges.

An evil ghost is ravaging Creede, Colorado, threatening to devour the spirit of an innocent boy. Inexperienced in facing such a powerful ghost—and knowing her spirit, too, could be ripped away—Clare still can’t refuse to help. With Zach’s support she uncovers the ghost’s identity, and the ancestral weapon required to slay it. But does Clare dare to use that weapon before the ghost destroys the man she loves—and her own spirit?

Quick & Dirty: Will Clare be able to save everyone from the killer ghost?

Opening Sentence: Danger comes, Enzo howled, running through the bedroom door.

Excerpt: Yes

The Review:

Clare, Zach, and Enzo are back again. This book picks up shortly after Ghost Layer ends. Really not too much time has passed from the first book to the third book. This time Clare is asked to help Barbara’s grandson. He is a seven-year-old boy that has already inherited his ghost seer powers, and he is way too young to deal with what comes with that. The Other that inhabits Enzo from time to time informs Clare that she will need a special knife in order to deal with a ghost that kills people.

Clare and Zach head out to Creede to stay at the hotel and be near Caden. On their way into town, they find that a suspicious accident has already killed two people. Zach believes the ghost has ramped it up and is getting out of control. Clare is frightened and wonders if she will be able to do what she needs to do. Especially the more she learns about the special knife that kills ghosts. It doesn’t take long before they are thrown out of the hotel by Caden’s parents and have to move elsewhere.

They begin with trying to figure out who the ghost is. They believe it is Robert Ford, but later learn they are dead wrong.

This was a pretty interesting addition. I still wasn’t blown away, but they are good solid reads. I am not sure if there is a deeper mystery going on, or if Clare will just help a ghost or kill ghosts in every novel. I have one more to review after this so I guess we will see. What I did like about this is that I think Zach and Clare are definitely working on having a believable and steamy relationship. I alternate between finding Enzo super funny or just super weird depending on the part of the story I am at. Overall, he is a good addition if not a little creepy at times when the Other possess him.

Even though this book was darker than it’s predecessors, it still came across as a bit light-hearted. I know that I like my books dark, twisted and creepy, so I will try not to judge these too harshly. Overall, they are quick easy and enjoyable reads. If you like paranormal, but often find them too dark for you, I think this would be the perfect series for you to read. Just enough darkness without racking up too much of a body count or blood and gore.

Notable Scene:

No accident but a murderous ghost. He rubbed his nape. He was really going there with cause and effect. A bullet of belief had lodged in him that a supernatural entity cause those deaths. He gave a passing thought to other freaky deaths he’d seen in his career, then rolled his shoulders. Those were past. This was right now, and he had to help Clare, protect her.

He sure didn’t like the sounds of a ghost that ate people, particularly ghost seers. Clare was a rookie in the business sure, he’d seen her specters pass on, and she’d handled herself well, but he didn’t like that a novice swimmer was being thrown into the deep end of the lake.
