Broken Hearted Ghoul

A review of Broken Hearted Ghoul by Joyce and Jim Lavene.

It’s been two years since Skye Mertz agreed to drive Abe’s Taxi for the Dead, transporting his zombie workers back to the man who gave them an additional twenty years of life. She’s raising her daughter, with the help of her ghostly mother-in-law, and keeps looking for what killed her  husband the night she died.
Now she has a partner—a housewife working off her zombie husband’s service—and she’s met a sorcerer with amnesia. It shouldn’t be surprising that a broken hearted ghoul, bent on getting revenge, should show up too. After all, there’s no rest for the dead.

My Review 
What a new way to tell a Zombie tale!

Skye Mertz and her husband died in a car accident two years ago, but Skye made a deal with Abe in order to stay "alive" and finish raising their daughter. In exchange for her 20 years she is turned into a zombie and then has to pick up zombies whose 20 years have expired and brings them back to Abe, so they can die their final death.

What happened from there.... she wanted to know. What she didn’t know was that not only were they zombies, but also ghouls, werewolves and magicians who roamed the streets of Nashville.

I really enjoyed the relationship between Skye and her new partner Debbie. I didn’t want to quit reading it. It was an easy and enjoyable read. I hope there are more to come in the series.
I give 5 stars!!!
