Clearing up her father's home after his death, Abby discovers a lab in his basement where her father had conducted experiments. Soon the local residents are looking to her to help them and continue her father's work. It seems that half of the town are zombies and without her help they might start eating other people.
From the first time Dan, the town's milkman and not a zombie, saw her he has been attracted to Abby. He can't believe she's as interested in him as he is in her. He knows that this is a love that can last so he wants to take things slow and sweet.
This is the second book I've read by Stephanie Beck in the past few of weeks and she's definitely worth reading again. Both books were different styles. The first, A Winter Tale: With Marshmallows, was about a tough as nails werewolf assassin, this one was about a sweet romance. Both were well written quick reads that I would have love to have seen made into full novels.
Abby's plan was to sell her father's home in South Dakota after his death, not take over his medical practice. Not that she's sure of the right name for the zombie clinic she ends up running in the small town full of reanimated, highly functional, non-brain eating zombies.
Dan, the strapping, sexy, non-zombie milkman is all too happy to lend a hand, and overwhelmed, Abby is grateful for his help. When that helping hand leads to something more, Abby is hopeful about where Dan's sweet and slow brand of courting might lead. The town's peaceful fall festival is interrupted when teenaged zombie hunters invade. Abby and Dan will have to work together to not only keep their secrets, but save their friends.
