I’m back again with the second entry of the Ghost Seer series for an Audiobook review. It’s Ghost Layer, Book 02 of the Ghost Seer series by Robin D. Owens. Here is where you can buy it on [amazon asin= 9780425268919&text=Amazon]
Plot Synopsis: Clare Cermac’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.
Plot: The plot is much better this time around, as it focuses less on the physical aspect of Clare and Zach’s relationship and instead on the emotional one. Not only that, but it also includes a couple mysteries that the two of them need to solve for this spectral case. I really do enjoy this much better than the previous entry in the series, and while it’s partly because of less sex scenes, it’s because this one focuses more on Zach than the last.
Characters: The returning characters all get expanded in ways that are both expected and unexpected. I didn’t expect to enjoy the expansion of the secondary characters as much as I did. Desiree in particular is quite good to listen to. The new characters in this volume are all interesting, but it’s the expansion of the returning characters backstories that made this book for me.
Voicework: Coleen Mario did a fantastic job again with this book, and I still enjoy her talking as Enzo quite a bit.
Overall: A sequel that is better than the first entry is always worth the read, and Ghost Layer is certainly one of those sequels.
