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.


Thank you so much for the Married with Zombies Read-A-Long and the Summer Reading Challenge for pushing me to finally read this book! I've had it on my shelf for atleast a year but just never got around to it. I absolutely loved it!

We all know I love a good zombie read; Blood, gore, guts...I loved it all, but Married with Zombies tossed in a few other elements. Humour and romance, and the outcome was simply fantastic.

I adored Sarah and David. Their bickering in the beginning was serious, and they were tettering over the cliff of divorce, but the Zombie apocalypse hits early and as the Zombie attacks intensify, their marriage starts making amense. It was touching to read a long as Sarah and David's marriage improved, but it was also hilarious at times. Jesse Peterson did a great job at adding the humour element, although their were guts and brains flying everywhere, some of the scenes were just laugh out loud funny.

Hilarious and romantic, the book also had one final, perfect touch...heart. There were a few scenes that sprung a few tears and had me reaching for the kleenex. Yes, the majority of the novel is a fun Zombie killing spree, but he didn't forget that his characters loved and cared for each other, and that element made the book perfect.

I loved every aspect of this novel. It was a fun, read but at times heart-warming and wrenching. This would be a great introduction book into the Zombie genre for any zombie newbie!
