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.

They did realize this was supposed to be a professional reading right? Whoever edited this together needs to go back to school because every 3-10 sentences I get an horrible squeaking screech that sounds like some seriously bad feedback. I can't even focus on the honestly good story because I'm tensed up waiting for another attack to my ears.
I have been one acquainted with the night
if you have ever been in a long term relationship you will enjoy this book even if there were no zombies to make things more interesting. obviously the zombie thing is happening but it is in a semi realistic way and the whole plot doesn't just revovlve around that.
ALSO all the horrible things u say in your head, the main character does and it is so relatable. you realize how many more people on a daily basis want to kill everyone. lol
the characters narrrations about the simple things that piss her off
the main couple. they are the kind of couple that u enjoy watching argue
absolutely worth it
zombie tales disliked the movies till I read Married with zombies & zombie fallout now i'm in love with Micheal Talbot
compelling, entertaining, hilarious
When Lisa turned into a zombie and when Dave asked Sarah to help him start a business!
Her delivery on every part. When the mood changed with the book, so did her voice. I especially love the way she had a different voice for each character so that you really visualize that person.
A sure way to turn things around in a bad relationship is a zombie apocalypse
I enjoyed every book the one thing that I was disappointed in was that the last book Zombie Whisperer was not available on audio.
The narrator was great and the author was funny!
None, this book was written more for adults in its humor.
The whole book!
Hmmm, I suppose the main female character, because she is the only girl that lives the longest! Also the author makes this female character intelligent unlike most authors now a days.
I strongly recommend this book if your looking for a break from your normal style of books. This series is funny and witty and packed full of action.
This is a great story -- kind of in the same genre as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, except with a couple as the central character and zombies instead of vampires. Jesse Petersen captures the complete confusion that occurs when Sarah and David, a modern couple living in Seattle, dealing with their crumbling marriage, stumble upon their marriage counselor attacking the couple who had the appointment before them, EATING THEM! It soon becomes clear that the zombie apocalypse is upon them and the battle to survive has begun. Fun, exciting story with just the right amount of campy humor. Can't wait to hear what happens next!
I like Jack Reacher style characters regardless of setting. Put them in outer space, in modern America, in a military setting, on an alien planet... no worries. Book has non moralistic vigilante-justice? Sign me up! (oh, I read urban fantasy, soft and hard sci-fi, trashy vampire and zombie novels too)
This book was on my wishlist for quite awhile, then I saw it on sale and snapped it up. I thought I'd finish it before buying the others in the series (also on sale) and... once I finished it, I declined to purchase the rest. I'm not saying it's a bad book, it's not... it's just not good enough to snag me into reading two more in the same vein.
It has a bit of humor, I suppose... if you like humor based on spousal discord. And the characters act in not-normal ways a couple times just so the author has an opportunity to explore a new 'theme' (i.e. they do things, or go places, or split up when no normal person in the same circumstances would do the same thing). And, of course, there's the typical and not-very-interesting "religious fanatics" segment where women were being collected for reproduction purposes (nearly all zombie/apocalyptic books fall back to this stock activity - a pet peeve of mine and a sign of a lack of originality in the author).
Anyway, it's fine for what it is: a light and not particularly original zombie story. If you want similar zombie stories that are a bit more serious and a bit more engaging, you could try the Day by Day Armageddon series, or the Undead Situation.
There is some swearing, no sex, and the narration is fine.
Though I found the constant bickering of the two main characters annoying at the beginning, the book soon took off and was a fun read. I enjoyed it enough to buy the next in the series.
I'm from Seattle, so reading a book about a Zombie apocalypse that starts here is pretty amusing. I love Cassandra Campbell's narration, I've listened to several books of hers already.
Even if you're not from Seattle, if you like books about zombies, or just want to try something new, this is a good one.
What a funny story!! I couldnt stop listening!! I hope there is another coming out - Great Job by the Narrator and the Author :) <3

This is a series that had moments where I would discard all the criticisms I'd built up. Then it would come crashing down again with ANOTHER moment that had me wondering what I'd done by ordering a few of these at one time. I am not one of those people who buys a book and then returns it to get my money/credit back. I made the commitment, and sometimes, you can bite the bullet.
So, here were the issues I had. The very first zombie encounter for Jesse and her husband happens in the marriage therapy office. They walk in to discover the therapist chowing down on the couple that had the appointment before theirs. Okay...how does that happen? Two people just sit around in a room and let the zombie get them? But I looked past it. Then, later in that battle between Jesse, David and the counselor zombie, she holds onto the therapist while David goes down, grabs her spiked-heel shoe from the zombie's foot, and kills the zombie. Do you see where I had issue?
Also, while there is some wit and appropriate snark in the series, sometimes it reads as a woman just angry with her man as she sat down to write the story. Not that I am any great knower of all things pertaining to the female mindset, but Jesse got to be a bit of a nuisance at times. I will move on to book 2 since I already bought it when I grabbed this one, and I will hope for improvement. Writers often get better as they trudge forward. So we shall see.
The narration was well done. Ms. Campbell didn't try to go over the top when she performed male voices. I will actually click on her name to find more of her work.
