Review: The Dead Come Calling by C.C. Wood

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.

We pick up right where we left off after the first book. Zoe has been traveling with Mal, Stony and Blaine doing their  Paranormal Investigation show. 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!! 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 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!
