Living with her alcoholic deadbeat dad in the swamps of southern Louisiana, she's a high school dropout with a pill habit and a criminal record who's been fired from more crap jobs than she can count. Now on probation for a felony, it seems that Angel will never pull herself out of the downward spiral her life has taken.
That is, until the day she wakes up in the ER after overdosing on painkillers. Angel remembers being in an horrible car crash, but she doesn't have a mark on her. To add to the weirdness, she receives an anonymous letter telling her there's a job waiting for her at the parish morgue—and that it's an offer she doesn't dare refuse.
Before she knows it she's dealing with a huge crush on a certain hunky deputy and a brand new addiction: an overpowering craving for brains. Plus, her morgue is filling up with the victims of a serial killer who decapitates his prey—just when she's hungriest!
Angel's going to have to grow up fast if she wants to keep this job and stay in one piece. Because if she doesn't, she's dead meat.
I knew from the title that I was going to have fun with this one, and I was not disappointed. Angel Crawford’s story starts out pretty low until an accident turns her life completely around. No longer a pill head, Angel learns new skills and how to become a contributing member of society. Despite that pesky little hunger she has for brains. Being there with Angel as she grows is a fun ride. She has no idea what she has become and is bound and determined to find out what happened. She is supplied with a job that puts her in a position to feed her hunger without it getting out of control, but a killer (or killers) are suddenly not leaving any heads to get brains out of. Angel rides the fine line of her humanity while trying to keep herself from falling to pieces. Literally.
I loved Angel’s attitude, and laughed wholeheartedly at her thoughts and approach to her new life. Plus it was fun to listen to a female with a mouth worse than mine! Allison McLemore does an awesome job narrating this book. She made it lively and truly captured Angel’s personality.
This book was a lot of fun I would recommend it to all, especially the audiobook! I can’t wait to get into the second installment!
