Ahhh, this is a silly, engaging and kind of gross book. It also has a yucky looking trashy cover (what is that, a mullet with part of the hair braided?) but with the prettiest pink pepto bismol background. I loved it. Angel Crawford is a loser, druggie, drunk with a pill habit who can’t hold down a job. She wakes up from a bloody accident in the hospital with no scars and little memory. She is given a note and some jars of a coffee type “energy” drink she is instructed to drink every other day. There are weird things floating in it, but it tastes great. She is also told about a job she is set up for driving the county morgue’s van.
This is a super fun take on zombies. They can function like normal humans as long as they keep energized with…I am sure you can guess what they need to eat, the movies got some stuff right.
So Angel figures out how to function, keeps a job for the first time in her life and gets involved in a mystery. Someone is lopping the heads off of people and keeping the heads hidden, just when she is hungriest! The mystery wraps up ok. There are some twists and turns and a satisfying slightly romancy end. It was sweet and enjoyable. Not really a repeat read but I will be looking for the other books in the series. 3 stars.
