Say something about yourself!
This is the second book in the White trash Zombie series. I read the first one. Loved it. Listened to the second one and I loved that even more. This series has a different spin on zombies. These are functional people with jobs yet they still have some abilities of traditional zombies.
Narration was perfect! I had a real feeling of being in the south. Which I missed out on when I read the first book.
Their is a really good mystery in the book. Well worth the credit!!!!!
I am looking forward to a book 3
OMG - I LOVED THIS BOOK!!! Finally, a heroine with a dirty mouth and a disposition as snarky as mine! I really liked her. There were plenty of one-liners that were just hilarious... What did the zombie say to the prostitute???? Hee hehehe. Also, I liked the narrator. She's feels like Angel. Nice choice!
I definitely will be reading more!
I like to live vicariously through fictional characters. I enjoy reading and/or listening to mostly paranormal and fantasy.
I just love this series. It has a very troubled heroine that finds herself as a zombie. In the first book, she has to figure out that she is a zombie and how to deal with that. In this book, she is still working on her relationship with her father, which is on shaky terms at best. She is also have some issues with her boyfriend/zombie-dad, Marcus. When she is held at gun point and one of her bodies stolen, her past comes back to haunt her. It even makes the front page of the paper. No one believes that she didn't just lose the body.
In this book, we really see Angel grow as a character. She still isn't perfect and falls back into old habits. She has a tendency to go back to the "I don't care" attitude. Then she realizes that she screwed up. You can see that she is starting to realize that she needs to grow up and start acting like an adult and working things out with conversations and not yelling matches.
Once again, Diana Rowland has created another winner. I just love this series. I've recommended it to several people who are not big in the paranormal genre. This series is just an all around great read.

This Book 2 of the White Trash Zombie series picks up right where the first leaves off. Angel now having been a zombie for a while now, knowing what her new “lifestyle” needs for her survival. She can now focus on what she needs for pleasure and living a “normal” life. Mysterious brainless corpses start to show up and things start to get hairy at her job at the Corner’s after her past is dug up, as it is election year after all, Angel finds herself anticipating the worst. In this audiobook, I can best describe it as a mix between The Bourne Identity, a really good detective novel, and a good mind-twisting novel. I personally did not care for the in depth detective style parts, but they were need to progress with the story.
It took me the longest time to listen to this series because A) the title is kind of misleading and I just wasn't sure and B) the cover artwork portrays a disagreeable character. Sorry to be petty, but it just looked like books I wouldn't like.
But I love them!
The writing is very clever and quite unique for this genre. I love the twist on zombies that Diana Rowland created. And Allison McLemore's narration is spot on.
This second book is as good as the first.
I would rate this book as another easy listening (mindless) - I can listen to this and easily work on computer or clean house or some other multi-task! I never would have picked this series except that I got a great deal on the first book and then found them funny! Read the whole series!
I was so totally engrossed with Angel that I would miss my exit to work.mental bubble gum. I will miss the end of this series.
I loved it when she said "I ate his brain. Sum a b**ch shot me." And she leaned back with her hands clasped behind her head. I could just see her!
Love her Louisiana white trash twang
I certainly could have if I had had the time
I am a book junkie...I read and enjoy a variety of stories, so please don't "define me" by one book or review! :)
Great continuation of the story. Angel again encounters her share of trouble (most of which is not her fault) and she continues to grow as a character. I really appreciate the sassy humor and the good writing as Angel progressively builds more confidence and self-respect. She trying to solve the "who and how" behind some strange and scary (and mostly criminal) events. I really appreciate the way she matures and handles her relationships with her father and Marcus. Allison McLemore does a wonderful job with the narration and bringing the story to life. I definitely recommend and will be going on to the third installment.
I realized during the second book why i was liking this story so much, it's not just plot point a slowly progresses to plot point b and here are all the facts that you need to know for this to make sense. It's unexpected callbacks from 3 hours ago, strange new twists, and a humorous protagonist to guide you through them all.
the narrator was a PERFECT match for this book, she does VERY well.
Love this series. It's fun, has a touch of romance and mystery. The narrator is great and helps make the story better. Not a serious read, but fun.
