Book Review Tuesday Something Strange and Deadly- EXTRA EDITION

Book review ARC

Summary from goodreads:
There’s something strange and deadly loose in Philadelphia…

Eleanor Fitt has a lot to worry about. Her brother has gone missing, her family has fallen on hard times, and her mother is determined to marry her off to any rich young man who walks by. But this is nothing compared to what she’s just read in the newspaper—

The Dead are rising in Philadelphia.

And then, in a frightening attack, a zombie delivers a letter to Eleanor…from her brother.

Whoever is controlling the Dead army has taken her brother as well. If Eleanor is going to find him, she’ll have to venture into the lab of the notorious Spirit-Hunters, who protect the city from supernatural forces. But as Eleanor spends more time with the Spirit-Hunters, including their maddeningly stubborn yet handsome inventor, Daniel, the situation becomes dire. And now, not only is her reputation on the line, but her very life may hang in the balance

My reactions:
Zombies- um ok.  Philadelphia high society-- Ok -- BUT YOU MIX THEM TOGETHER AND  IT”S AWESOME!!!!

Eleanor is a complete understandable character filled with her own set of problems- like a crazy mom, some dude that’s kinda rude but seems to be into her and oh yeah ZOMBIES!.

The characters are rich and lively.  The plot is fast paced.  I read it in a day. A DAY!  And I don’t know if you know this about me but I have a kid so that makes reading sort of difficult.  I’m not sure what my kid did that day, I’m sure whatever it was, it wasn’t as interesting as Eleanor.  

Oh and the sexy love interests... um can we say YUM.

It's a book I can recommend to my students and friends and of course my readers. 

Look you need to read this book.  TRUST ME!
