Book 1 of the White Trash Zombie Series
Angel Crawford is a loser
Living with her alcoholic deadbeat dad in the swamps of southern Louisiana, she's a high school dropout with a pill habit and a criminal record who's been fired from more crap jobs than she can count. Now on probation for a felony, it seems that Angel will never pull herself out of the downward spiral her life has taken.
That is, until the day she wakes up in the ER after overdosing on painkillers. Angel remembers being in an horrible car crash, but she doesn't have a mark on her. To add to the weirdness, she receives an anonymous letter telling her there's a job waiting for her at the parish morgue--and that it's an offer she doesn't dare refuse.
Before she knows it she's dealing with a huge crush on a certain hunky deputy and a brand new addiction: an overpowering craving for brains. Plus, her morgue is filling up with the victims of a serial killer who decapitates his prey--just when she's hungriest!
Angel's going to have to grow up fast if she wants to keep this job and stay in one piece. Because if she doesn't, she's dead meat.
This book has been out for quite some time. There are currently two others also available in the series AND another one is due out soon(thus prompting my review).
This book is pure fun. Pardon the zombie joke but I wanted to gobble it up in one sitting!
You can't help but like Angel from the get go and root for her as the story progresses.
I'd classify this as Urban Fantasy with a dash of mystery and hint of budding romance.
A quick read, it's filled with interesting tidbits concerning Angel's job in the morgue.
If you've read and loved Mark Henry's Amanda Feral (zombie series) books, then you'll enjoy this one.
