The Dead Comes Calling has both of those and so much more. I personally recommend before starting this story that you go and read the first in the series, Don't Wake The Dead. Both books follow, Zoe, a medium, on her journey to learning more about the paranormal. Zoe is now a full member of The Wraith Files, an online show about the paranormal, and she is in th I really truly love C.
Zoe is now a full member of The Wraith Files, an online show about the paranormal, and she is in the beginning stages of a relationship with Mal, the guy in charge aka her boss. On top of all that she is trying to solve the murder of Terri, the somewhat horny ghost who haunts her house. I will warn you that this is not a book full of sex. That being said it is full of romance and with the antics of this cast of characters you really won't miss it at all. All of this makes for a fun and suspenseful story that I just could not put down.
Dec 05, Ginger Snaps rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is the 2nd book in author C. Wood's Wraith Files series. It sets up where the first book ended but there are no cliffangers. We've got Zoe, who can see and talk to ghosts, who has just returned home after months of visiting various haunted places and filming videos with Mal the hunky YouTube show director , along with sound and cameramen Stony and Blaine.
Speaking of Zoe's home, she got it for a great price because it came with a ghost who has been haunting it for 30 years. She is absolutely hilarious! In this book, Teri the ghost asks Zoe to look into her murder 30 years ago, which was staged to look like a suicide. As usual, bad things seem to happen when Zoe pokes her nose into things she shouldn't, but there's also a dark power that's after her.
Zoe learns more about her powers when new players enter the game and she finds again that having a house ghost can be very helpful! Like the previous book, this book has an HEA ending with no cliffhangers. I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. I didn't love it as book as book It didn't have the same vibe as the first. As a self confessed non reader of the paranormal genre I always find myself at a bit of a loss with C.
Woods books, there's something inherently special about her words, some magical culmination of her storylines, covers, and witty prose that have me so utterly invested that I can't put them down. Wood mixes her trademark wit with her ability to build tension perfectly here, Don't Wake The Dead was addictive, utterly impossible to put down. As Zoe frantically searched for Teri's murderer, and the pressure mounted, I found myself on the edge of the seat, yelling at my kindle like a childhood pantomime "look behind youuuuuuuu". Wood's latest offering was a breath of fresh air at a time when I find myself more and more underwhelmed by lackadaisical sex scenes that seem to only serve as filler.
With a strong push toward character development and really crafting a story that I can't wait to continue, The Wraith Files has easily become one of my newest favourites. To read more of GPI's reviews: Dec 11, Melissa Spillman rated it it was amazing.
This series by C. She did NOT disappoint at all!! The second book in this installment was JUST as good as the first if not maybe better than the first. Zoe's story continues on with same hilarity and creepiness as the first. Filled with snarkiness, scariness, possessions and bit of romance this book will make any paranormal lover extremely happy!! I do not want to give away any of the story because it is seriously that much fun I highly recommend this book, hell this whole series, to anyone who enjoys paranormal books. It is kitchy and spooky, the writing is great, it flows well and keeps you on the edge of your seat.
Dec 07, Maria rated it it was amazing. We're back with another adventure and if you thought last time with close to home this time it's even more so as Zoe works to find Teri's killer. The fact that it was ruled a suicide and is more than 30 years old males it difficult for her to make any real progress. Add to that a stalker leaving deadly gifts on her porch and a dark entity trying to kill her and Zoe's vacation from her six weeks on the road has just turned really crazy.
If you haven't read book one in the series previously I high We're back with another adventure and if you thought last time with close to home this time it's even more so as Zoe works to find Teri's killer. If you haven't read book one in the series previously I highly recommend reading it first.
After reading it I had thought that we would begin to see her adventures on the road however I was pleasantly and excitedly surprised that book two was right back in her hometown and that the mystery was right in her own home. I love Zoe's determination to help her friends even if it is a pervy dead stripper that she is trying to help. Seeing Teri again and her antics really brings in a lot of comic relief into what would otherwise have been a very serious book overall.
I enjoyed the storyline for this one and how everything came together and also how just when you think you know everything you get another twist to the characters or the story. This is definitely a series that I am excited to continue reading and I can't wait for the next one! Jan 01, Veronica rated it really liked it. I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads. I have to say this book was a little scary in parts, which I loved.
In my past I've enjoyed reading horror novels and while I usually steer clear of paranormal stories, I'm really enjoying The Wraith Files. In "The Dead Come Calling" Zoe is home during a break in filming of the show when she is attacked by an dark entity. We actually get snippets of the s I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads. We actually get snippets of the story from the entity so while Zoe and her gang are trying to figure out where it came from and what it wants, as the reader we have a clearer picture of the situation.
At the same time, Zoe is investigating Teri's murder and also dealing with a growing romance with Mal. With the introduction of a local witch Zoe starts to learn a little more about her abilities which I'm hoping to see explored more as the series moves on. I enjoyed the mixture of romance, mystery and spookiness and I look forward to more of The Wraith Files. Dec 16, Kim O'Daniel rated it it was amazing. You have got to read this book! That is if you read book one already. This book was even better than the first.
This book is just as well written and thought through as the first. I even learned a few things about the supernatural as well. This book has Zoe coming home after a long few months at work. Only to find out there is not only one entity, but two evils after her. When a package is left on her doorstep on her birthday she thought nothing of it. Until one night she almost looses two of her You have got to read this book! Until one night she almost looses two of her friends.
And this dark entity attacks her in the middle of the night. Thank god for her resident ghost, as she was the ony one able to save her. On the up side Mal does not want to leave her side. Even sleeping in her bed, just to hold her and keep her safe. Now if they can just figure out who it is that is after her, and why. Man I can wait to read the next book. Now before I ruin this for you I will leave off here. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did. If you do like this book, please consider leaving a review. The Authors really like it when you do; they value your opinions too.
Dec 20, Mariela Bustos rated it really liked it. I have to say this series is becoming a favorite. Book one reals you in, but book two builds an anticipation and need for more. It took a moment to get me full into it, but once it did I was blown away. The writer managed to create within this mystery intertwined beautifully leaving you second guessing what might be the end conclusion. I found myself on the edge of my seat wondering if Zoe would actual pull it off and conquer the evil, or would it lead to something bigger. I enjoyed I have to say this series is becoming a favorite.
I enjoyed the book even more knowing that C. Wood build such a climatic twist that has you wondering who, why, and "oh no": Will Malachi and Zoe continue slow or pick it up, will Blaine, Stony, and Jonelle have romance connections blossom? Oh and let's not forget the resident ghost Teri. She has definitely captured my heart.

So, all I want to say is looking forward to the next book in the series, and the new twist it will bring. This book was all about Teri for me. I love her fiercely! She's sassy but she also cares about Zoe. You need to read book 1, Don't Wake The Dead, for a variety of reasons.
Zoe has been working on The Wraith Files show for a bit now and getting used to being "famous" and traveling and working with the guys all the time. And being awa Teri. And being away from Teri as she's tied to Zoe's house. But like the title says, the dead come calling to Zoe's house and things happen. And that's all I'm saying. Dec 17, Ercilda rated it it was amazing. Another great book by C. The Dead Come calling They came calling alright is the second book in the series. The Dead come calling was an awesome read.

For better understanding start with the first book in the series Don't Wake the Dead Dec 11, TDCbookreviews rated it it was amazing.
The Dead Come Calling by C. Wood I did read the first book in the series but there was a good enough explanation at the beginning of the book that you could seamlessly start with this book. Zoe, Mal, and the gang are back again in the second book of The Wraith Files series. This time a demon is attacking Zoe in her own home. Will the demon be banished or will it not stop until Zoe is dead? This book was a quick read. I enjoyed how the story seamlessly picked up where it left off. The characters are very relatable and while content is supernatural, it seems real. The ending wrapped things up but also left it open ended for another book.
Nov 30, Kylie rated it it was amazing. I'm actually giving this book a rating of 4. However, this book is the perfect late night, good time read!

C did a fabulous job of creating suspense with hilarity in this nail biting story. I'll have a full review up, once I have the quotes 'okay'd by the author to use, because Teri is hilarious, and I won't be able to do the review justice without some proof ; this is one of the most highlighted books I've read in a I'm actually giving this book a rating of 4.

Dec 14, Leslie rated it really liked it. I like the characters and am interested to see where it goes in the future. Jan 14, Richelle Robinson rated it really liked it. We pick up right where we left off after the first book.
Once Zoe returns home she returns her focus on finding the man who killed Teri. Teri is a ghost that lives with Zoe and she's an absolute hoot!!
What Does "Cc" Mean in a Text? | mail.tranquilitynorth.com
She's my favorite out of all the characters! As Zoe continues her investigation some strange things start happening. I really enjoyed the storyline and getting to know more about Teri before she died. The We pick up right where we left off after the first book. The killer was an absolute monster and I couldn't stop reading and waiting for him to get his!
The relationship with Zoe and Mal is progressing but it's taking way too long for my liking. I understand they want to take it slow but I was hoping for more in this book. It's hard to feel the connection between the two of them. I feel more between her and Teri than her and Mal. I'm hoping in the next book we get more of a connection between the two. This book also introduces some secondary characters.
Yup, we have Witches!! I liked the addition of these characters and the new developments we found out about Joelle Zoe's best friend and Zoe. I didn't see that coming and that was a very nice surprise. We also found out some family secrets and who doesn't like those? Overall, I did like this story and will definitely be continuing with this series.
Some series lose steam after the first book but Wood has kept the stories fresh and entertaining. When I'm reading these books it's like catching up with old friends. I can't wait to see what's in store for the bunch! Dec 11, Hello Cupcakes rated it it was amazing. Dec 21, Hajar rated it it was amazing Shelves: The anticipation has arrived! I read it as soon as i bought it!.. The story continued after a few months Zoe and her new friends slash crew traveled to go hunting for paranormal investigations. From the first book Zoe agree to help Teri, her best friend slash housemate slash a ghost to solve her murder 30 years ago.

I liked how Zoe really taking her time even though i really want to knock her head sometime about her relationship with Mal. The wit,pervy,swearing and loads more is here!. Will Zoe be able to help Teri to solved her murder?
What more surprises will there be? Then you need to read it! I cant wait for the next Wraith series and looking for it even more. Dec 12, Jeneane rated it really liked it. The second installment in the Wraith Files continues with Zoe looking for her resident Ghost Teri's killer. There's also a malevolent evil stalking Zoe and her friends. This book has a little bit of everything from quirky characters, suspense, thrills, chills, sexual tension, great friendships, and mystery.

Opposite my talk, another faculty member was laying out genomics and public health. No matter what anyone tells you, in this situation, most academics would rather hear the talk they are up against than give their own. I had a full room of eager listeners awaiting me, however, so onward I went, missing the talk I wanted to hear. I was talking about child development and technology , no real surprise there for BOLD blog readers. And of course, I showed a lot of cool demos. My demos tend to make computer scientists ask me hard questions about scalability of the intervention, how exactly are we accomplishing the sensing, and what else we might be able to do with new hardware.
What impact does room lighting have on your motion sensing? How often do users have to charge your devices? What happens to your machine learning algorithms when you drop data? My results slides tend to make the behaviorists and psychologists in the room ponder mechanisms for the impact we see, ability of these approaches to generalize past the small samples we tend to be able to test, and the impact of dosage on outcomes.
Just how much technology do we need to use to get effects? Is this realistic for interventions in practice? These are the questions I am used to getting. Every so often, I get a question about whether our technology is available open source or for purchase. Academics never ask the dreaded question though. That question gets saved for talks I give outside of the academe, like this one. And so, let us return to my moment of panic. Answering the question is hard for multiple reasons.
Of course, there is the issue of my expertise and whether I really feel comfortable having it applied in this way. My mind starts to race imagining the cocktail party conversations or worse being invoked in the mommy wars on the playground or even within families.
There is also a part of me that feels shame, the same shame we all feel, that my parenting choices might not actually be the best in light of the research we know.
So much of parenting is just doing the best we can with what we can. I began with cloth diapers and switched to paper once my kids started eating solid food.
If you are a parent, you know why. So much of parenting is justifying our own choices after the fact. We seek out opinions that match our own and make us feel good.
