Book: The Zombie Always Knocks Twice
Author: E. Van Lowe
Format: Paperback
Pages: 169
How I got it: Won in a First Reads Giveaway
My Rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

 Hollywood, California, is known for swimming pools,
movie stars…and now the risen dead.

Hollywood can be a difficult place to grow up, especially if you’re Kristine Golden, a fifteen-year-old necromancer with a sworn duty to lay the risen dead back to rest and no desire to be in the movie business.

When handsome deadie Alex Romero swaggers into her life, Kris must keep her promise, despite her growing feelings for him. If that’s not enough to give a girl a headache, a murderous zombie comes knocking at Kris’s door, rocking her world and threatening her family.

Can Kris solve the mystery of the rampaging zombie before someone else winds up dead? Or will the walking dead take over Hollywood and turn it into…Hollyweird?

I liked this book. It was fun and entertaining. It combined the supernatural with mystery and humor. Even some sweet romance.

I liked the main character Kris. She was independent and strong. She didn't rely on anybody else to make things happen, if she set her mind to something she wanted to do it herself. She kept her cool while dealing with everything that was thrown her way. From the zombie to her powers as a necromancer. 

And when Alex Romero was introduced I fell in love. He's witty, funny and protective. What isn't to love about that?

However, I hated her sister Anne Marie. She was a snarky brat who needed to get told off. She thought life revolved around her and her own problems. Well sorry but it doesn't!

The book flowed really well. It took me a little while to get into it but once I did it was hard for me to put down. The author's writing is phenomenal and easy to understand. He has the ability to write a teenage girls point of view perfectly.

I would recommend this book for people who enjoy mystery when paired with the paranormal. If you like funny books then this one is definitely for you.
