Don’t Wake the Dead (The Wraith Files) is the first book in a new paranormal/mystery series by C.C. Wood.


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 we 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.

My thoughts

Don’t Wake the Dead is a wonderfully written paranormal mystery with strong-sassy-smart characters.
Those who read/follow my reviews know that I’m a HUGE C.C. Wood fan.
This story is one of her best stories yet!

I really liked the chemistry/attraction between Zoe and Malachi.
They perfectly complimented one another, but my favorite character was Teri the ghost who came with Zoe’s house.

She was/is amazing!

About the Author

 photo JGM_8352-2.jpg

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.
