Release Date: October 1, 2013
Genre: New Adult/Romance/Apocalyptic



Goodreads Summary:

When the world ends, can love survive?

For Scarlet, raising her two daughters alone makes fighting for tomorrow an everyday battle. Nathan has a wife, but can’t remember what it’s like to be in love; only his young daughter Zoe makes coming home worthwhile. Miranda’s biggest concern is whether her new VW Bug is big enough to carry her sister and their boyfriends on a weekend escape from college finals.

When reports of a widespread, deadly “outbreak” begin to surface, these ordinary people face extraordinary circumstances and suddenly their fates are intertwined. Recognizing they can’t outrun the danger, Scarlet, Nathan, and Miranda desperately seek shelter at the same secluded ranch, Red Hill. Emotions run high while old and new relationships are tested in the face of a terrifying enemy—an enemy who no longer remembers what it’s like to be human.

Set against the backdrop of a brilliantly realized apocalyptic world, love somehow finds a way to survive. But what happens when the one you’d die for becomes the one who could destroy you?



Why I Can't Wait:

I absolutely loved Beautiful Disaster and Walking Disaster. When a few weeks ago it was announced that the next book by Jamie McGuire was set in an apocalyptic world, I told myself that it was the perfect opportunity for me to step out of my comfort zone. I think it's time for me to experience this zombie mania that is taking the book world by storm. I love this book cover! It's very appealing. I love the fact that this story has many main characters. I can't wait to see what Scarlet, Nathan and Miranda's story is all about.
