Publisher's Summary

Medical-school-dropout police detective Richelle Dadd is...well, dead.
But that won't stop her from trying to hold on to her house in a divorce battle with a bitter husband. Or keep her from digging into her own murder, to discover who put the bullet into her heart. Or from coming to terms with her Gypsy heritage. And it certainly won't stand in the way of finding out the reason she's been reanimated as a zombie assassin, no longer in control of her life.
Richelle will face off against Romani shamans, double-crossing ghosts, a partner she can't trust, and her own undead nature in a journey into the depths of the occult world and out the other side without losing her sense of humor - or humanity - along the way.
It's a good thing her deductive skills - and her aim - are still up to par.

Zombie romance?? Not for me, thanks.

This is the review I wish I would've read before selecting this title:



Not just a little romance, mind you. I made it halfway through before giving up, and to that point the storyline seems to be a mix of 70% romance with a touch of murder/mystery and zombies thrown into the mix. If you aren't a fan of romance novels, you WILL (most likely) NOT enjoy this book!

To be fair to the author, I gave the book four stars because I did not want to ruin the ratings based on my genre bias. Based solely on my personal opinion, I would've felt charitable giving it two stars overall (the performance was solid), but who am I to judge a genre I know nothing about?

It's really a shame, too, because the premise of a zombie detective was compelling.
