Married With Zombies
by Jesse Petersen
Series: Living with the Dead #1Genre: Adult, Paranormal, Zombies
A heartwarming tale of terror in the middle of the zombie apocalypse.
Meet Sarah and David.
Once upon a time they met and fell in love. But now they’re on the verge of divorce and going to couples’ counseling. On a routine trip to their counselor, they notice a few odd things – the lack of cars on the highway, the missing security guard, and the fact that their counselor, Dr. Kelly, is ripping out her previous client’s throat.
Meet the Zombies.
Now, Sarah and David are fighting for survival in the middle of the zombie apocalypse. But, just because there are zombies, doesn’t mean your other problems go away. If the zombies don’t eat their brains, they might just kill each other.

If this book were a zombie it would be in the middle of the pack. Sure it will enjoy some tasty flesh and brains but it wouldn’t be on the front lines and seeing all of the action. In other words, it falls into my ‘good but not great’ category. I did like that the zombie apocalypse was a major theme, but not the only theme throughout the book. You also see how Sarah and David try to work through their broken marriage and work together (or not) to survive.
And mad props to Sarah being aware of her surroundings and using some more unusual methods of killing zombies. The bathroom scene was one of my favorites and gets a thumbs up from this guts and gore lover.
I do plan to continue the series but for now it will take a back burner to other books on my to read list.
