ARC: Don't Wake The Dead - C.C. Wood (The Wraith Files #1)

Published Date: May 25, 2016
Genre: Horror

Synopsis: My name is Zoe Thorne and I'm just an ordinary woman. My life is mundane, and that's perfectly fine with me; I work a boring job, watch TV, read books, and sleep alone. There's nothing special about me.

Except that I can see ghosts.

After suffering years of rejection due to my freakish ability, I'm determined to hide my "gift" from others. That is until I meet Malachi Flemming and his peculiar yet amusing friends. Mal hosts a paranormal web show titled The Wraith Files and when he discovers my talent, he offers me a job. Well, offer may not be the right word.

He won't take no for an answer.

One night, we stumble across a spirit on the side of a deserted, country road. He seems lost and scared, convinced someone murdered him. Mal's interest is piqued and he insists on helping me investigate the accident. The deeper we dig, the clearer it becomes that the killer doesn't want us to discover the truth.

Desperate people will go to any lengths to keep their secrets buried. Sometimes it's best not to wake the dead unless you plan to join them.

Review: What I loved about this book is that it included every one of my favorite aspects. I looked for a read that could give me the chills, the laughs, the romance, and the action. Don't Wake the Dead did just that. I found myself laughing at the relationships Zoe had with some of these ghosts.

It was rather pitiful how ghosts were vying for Zoe's attention. In fact, I was watching Supernatural episode where Dean has an out of body experience and he wants to grab someone’s attention. Turns out, no one can hear him. 

This reminded me of Ghost Hunters but hot. You know? Anyways, without much of spoilers here is the rate: 4.4 out of 5 stars.

A native Texan, C.C. grew up either reading or playing the piano.  Years later, she’s still not grown up and doing the same things.  Since the voices in her head never shut up, C.C. decided to share their crazy stories and started writing books.
Now that she has a baby girl at home, C.C.’s non-writing time is usually spent cleaning up poopy diapers or feeding the poop machine.  Sometimes she teaches piano, cooks, or spends time bugging her hubby and two beagles.
