*BOOK ONE IN THE BEAUTIFUL DEAD TRILOGY*
In fact, the whole world’s dead. Every single person, apparently. Unburied and reimagined into a beautiful living-dead woman called Winter, she is doomed to spend the rest of eternity in a quaint, peaceful city with no hunger, no sickness and no bills to pay. Her Second Life is perfect in every way possible.
So why is she so bent on destroying it all?
After angering the mayor, befriending rebel headless teenagers and igniting romance with a dark and brooding neighbor, she finds herself wrestling madly with a First Life she cannot remember and this Second Life she cannot accept. Not to mention the maniacal army of rotting corpses who want her dead. Again.
But none of that matters in comparison to an even bigger problem. There’s a guest in her house. A rude, good-looking man on the run ... a man with a heartbeat.
I wasn't sure about this book at first, since I didn't even read the synopsis. I wanted to read and review it because EVERYONE I know who has read it, loved it. They did NOT steer me wrong! I'm a huge fan of post-apoc and zombies in general, and this is a whole new take on both.
I loved the characters, even the ones we're supposed to hate! The little twists and turns thrown in kept my interest so much that I hadn't realized how much I had already read until I paused to look, and found that I was 82% in. I started reading slower, because I wasn't ready for it to end!
This story was so well put together and written, the characters so easy to connect to and understand, I didn't put it down until I was finished. Then, I immediately came to Amazon to buy the second one.
I highly recommend this to anyone who likes this sort of genre, and any who are adventurous and willing to try something new! This was my first book by this author, and it most certainly will not be my last!
