I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily. All opinions are honest and my own.Zombies for Everyone Series: Jenna Sutton Cozy Mystery, #1, #1
by Kimberly Wylie
Genres: Fantasy, Mystery, Paranormal, Young Adult
Jenna Sutton is nothing like the iconic vampire slayer of TV fame.
She’s the antithesis of a cheerleader. She’s not peppy. And she sucks at gymnastics. She has nothing in common with the fictional Buffy, other than being blonde and in high school...
Oh, and occasionally she kills vampires for a living as well as other things that go bump in the night
Following an attack on an English teacher at a nearby school, it becomes clear this wasn’t an ordinary coyote bite. The gray-green Lichtenberg-like webbing of streaks making their way up Ms. Pruett’s arm can mean only one thing—zombies.
But this isn’t a normal zombie attack. The victims seem to be hand-picked.
Can Jenna complete her investigation without the school administrators figuring out she’s actually a high school student from another school? Will Jenna be able to find out who’s behind these attacks before a full-scale zombie outbreak overtakes the town? And, perhaps most importantly...
Why did her best friend kiss her after all of these years?

Zombies for Everyone by Kimberly Wylie is a fun, light-hearted read. For a cozy mystery, some of the descriptions were a little too “bloody” for my liking, but it wasn’t too much. Then again, this story is about a woman who kills vampires and other supernatural beings.
I have to admit, the book wasn’t exactly what I thought it would be. I found the premise a little hard to follow and didn’t understand why the protagonist did what she did. On the other hand, there was sometimes too much background given that maybe some important points went over my head.
This story is targeted at YA and I think I would have enjoyed it more if the character was an adult. But I’m not the targeted audience, so maybe it fits just fine as a YA. But also, there was little character development and more story-driven, which I prefer to learn more about the characters along the way.
Overall, it’s a quick read and enjoyable enough. I don’t know if I’ll rush out to buy book two when that comes out, though.
Rating: 3/5 Coffee Cups
