The first book in this series was so different to the thousands of other zombie novels out there, because of the tension and dislike for each between Sarah, the narrator and the other main character her would have been soon to be ex husband David. That bickering and using little things that annoyed each other to make the story funnier, such as the left up toilet seat to kill encountered zombies, made Married Zombies the can't put down masterpiece that it was. None of that exists in the sequel, Dave and Sarah are happy with each other, the only tension arrives when one feels the other is about to unnecessarily risk their life or a bit of territorial jealousy by Dave with their new client, which rubs Sarah the wrong way and may or may not be affecting Dave's ability to read a situation.
We've also moved on from the outbreak just occurring in the first novel, and the two bumbling their way through survival to a fair amount of time having passed, society has accepted what is going on, reborn themselves in smaller fortified settlements and basically started over. Dave and Sarah are now experts at dispatching the undead. In fact that's what they're doing now, running an extermination business where for trade such as half a pack of children's band-aids they will risk death or infection to rid a building of others pesky zombie infestation. So we loose a lot of the edge of your seat action from the first novel as they now seemly just run them down with their van, lop off their heads or shoot them in the heads with little effort. Plus it doesn't seem to me to be something that you'd bother doing for so little reward especially when Sarah boasts later in the story that you can just take anything in this massively reduced population world such as whatever luxury car you want or whatever you find when you walk into any house. So why not just scavenge and kill when necessary the odd zombie you find while doing that instead of risking all for half a box of children's plasters.
The don't want to stop reading until the final page factor of the first book isn't there with Flip the Zombie. The story does improve from about half way when the couple now trying to capture rather than kill a zombie for a new client, get a new sidekick named Robbie. In fact that's where a bit of the tension Sarah used to have between herself and her husband sort of reappears when she copes with Robbie's behaviour.
If you've read the first book, although you'll be disappointed, you may want to get read this just to know what happens to the characters. I think there was a room timelines wise for a book set back in Dave's sister's town before jumping so far into the future for this tale and we've have missed out on a lot of potential marriage tension and developing their zombie combat skills through learning by each encounter. I ordered the next book Eat Slay Love along with this after reading the first novel so I will read that too but I'm not sure I would have bothered after this one, if I hadn't already done that. Still the author Jesse Petersen clearly has the talent, maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised and the third instalment will be as good as the first.
