If you are a fan of Love and Monsters as well as the Resident Evil franchise, you will love Leah Hermann’s Love Letters and Zombies. Set in the year 2030 after a parasitic blood virus breaks out and turns the infected into zombies, local business owner Connor gets separated from his girlfriend Millie when they try to reach safety with the military. With only enough space for one passenger, Connor thrusts Millie into the vehicle with promises of finding her later. On his journey to track down the love of his life, Connor meets Susie, and together they use Millie’s love letters to Connor as clues to their final objective, all the while battling hordes of zombies.
Leah Hermann put my emotions through the wringer with this one! Told from Connor’s point of view, the story switches from the present to the past as he reminisces about a time before the zombie apocalypse. We see glimpses of Connor and Millie when they had just begun dating, as well as the obstacles any young couple residing in a small town would experience. We see how each character overcame their fears and conquered the zombie outbreak. Love Letters and Zombies touches on themes such as romance, zombie-apocalypse, and slice-of-life while maintaining a sense of reality regarding the situations our main characters found themselves in. I almost cried when reading this novel and I loved the ending. One major lesson I would take away from this book is to live in the moment, because tomorrow isn’t guaranteed.
