I’m back with another book review, and this time it’s “How The White Trash Zombie Got Her Groove Back” by Diana Rowland! Here’s a summary so we know what it’s about:
“It’s zombie versus zombie as the Saberton Corporation declares war against the Zombie Mafia, kidnapping several of their party. It falls to Angel to lead the remnants of her gang halfway across the country to claw their way through corporate intrigue, zombie drugs, and undead trafficking to rescue her friends—and expose the traitor responsible for their abduction…”
Remember how I mentioned last time that Marcus’ and Angel’s relationship was getting better? It got worse again, mainly due to Marcus’ not listening to Angel (which was something she confronted him about in the second book). With this being coupled with Marcus getting into law school, Angel decided it was better that they break up and stay friends for a while instead. As much as I dislike how the relationship went kaput, it was probably for the best. Despite Marcus going to law school, though, I have a feeling we’ll see him again in a later book.
Speaking of break-ups, Randy, Angel’s ex-boyfriend from the first book, comes back for this book! He makes his reappearance in this book when Angel has to get his help with a thing or two (and I won’t spoil what those things are due to spoilers). It seems that even Randy is getting a bit better with things compared to when I last saw him, and I have a feeling we’ll see him again in a later book. Even if he and Angel don’t get back together romantically, they could very much still be friends if things keep improving.
Going away from the break-ups and towards new additions, Angel’s dad now has a girlfriend! Kind of. This is a hugely minor plotline compared to the other plotlines presented in this book, mainly for the humour, but it’s funny seeing how Angel reacts to all of this. It’s also just really funny seeing how Angel and her dad weren’t in great relations in the first book compared to how they are now with each other and how they’re adjusting to everything.
The main plot of the Saberton Corporation verses the Zombie Mafia was interesting, but I felt like it went on a bit too long. Some parts of the plot felt pretty slow, and I hoped the pacing would speed up as it went. Sadly it did not, and so I was slightly disappointed.
Overall, I would rate this book 4 out of 5 stars for the interesting minor plotlines and character relationship developments, but it loses the one star due to the slowing main plotline.
