The Dead Come Calling by C.C. Wood Review


4.5 Smooches

a4 a4-2 a4-4 a4-3 a5


I’m Zoe Thorne and I speak to the dead. Unfortunately, dead isn’t always synonymous with good-natured. In fact, most of the spirits I meet have dirty minds and a tendency to create mischief and mayhem.

For the past two months, I’ve been traveling with the cast of The Wraith Files, a paranormal investigation web show. Stony and Blaine are like the perverted, annoying brothers I never had. Our boss, Malachi Flemming, well, he makes my heart beat faster and my hormones dance.

During a break from filming, I’ve returned home to my resident ghost, Teri, an exotic dancer who died thirty years ago. I’m on a mission to find the man who murdered her and see that justice is served.

Preoccupied with my search for a killer, I’m unaware that something dark and twisted lies in wait for me. Not one, but two faceless entities intent on terrorizing me before moving in for the kill.

With unseen enemies shadowing my every move, it’s time to discover how deep my abilities run. I need every bit of power I possess…or I’ll be taking my place among the dead.

*This book contains a perverted ghost, two men who act like teenage boys, and lots of sarcasm.


I really truly love C.C. Wood’s paranormal romances. They are completely unique and mix exciting storylines with her trademark quick wit. 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 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.

“Are you a real man, Malachi Flemming, or a robot programmed to tell a woman what she wants to hear?”

The Dead Come Calling was hilariously funny and the action kept the story moving at a fast pace. The chemistry between Zoe and Mal is undeniable and they had some pretty amazing make out sessions. 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.
