Don't Wake the Dead 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 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.

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.

5 Stars
Zoe just wants to be happy. In life and with her job. When she is fired from her regular ordinary job should be good looking for something just as mundane but when Mal comes poking around her house asking about ghosts she just can't seem to say no to him. And then he finds out she can see and hear ghosts. Life for her will never be the same, but will they be good changes?
Zoe is full of fire and sass she may seem a little run down by life in the beginning but as you see her coming out of her shell you see just how much she really wants to live.
Mal is a sweetie and I love a character like him that is so upfront and honest.
The two have a lot of chemistry Zoe is determined to keep things professional.
When a ghost on the side of the road catches her attention and she finds out his story the team becomes determined to find out what happened to him but they weren't expecting the backlash and it leads them on quite a ride!
While the story may be all from Zoe's perspective the side characters truly make this an exceptional read each one created with such detail that you can see them in your mind's eye and how they really would be if they were real. I love the hilarity and the friendship intertwined in the story as well as all the twists and turns as Zoe works to figure out her life.
This was a great start to a new series that I gobbled up in one afternoon and I am definitely excited to see more!
