                Book 2 picks up a couple of months after where Book 1 left off. Sarah and David have taken their adventure to Arizona where Zombie hunting and killing has become a not so profitable business for them. Cash is not as important as it used to be. People now use a barter system. Food and ammunition and other necessities have become Sarah and David’s payment for their Zombie exterminating services. This installment in the series includes a new species of even more dangerous Zombies and of course we get a mad scientist thrown into the mix. No Zombie novel would be complete without the crazed mad scientist.    
                Sarah and David as a couple are so easy to relate too. They have spats and tiny disagreements. They occasionally tell the other yeah okay you were right this time. I have this picture of them in my head as Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn. Why those two? I honestly have no clue. I think it has to do with the romantic comedy of this series. Sarah and David are out in the world making the best of a horrible situation. I love these books. They are a light read. Zero heavy thinking involved. This is a quick easy read that is perfect for travel. Thus far I have read both books in this series while traveling. The Living with the Dead series is laugh out loud funny!  
                ***The Living with Zombies series needs to be read in order and not as a stand-alone or out of order***
