But just when he's decided to stop looking, Amie drags him away to her grandparents' beach house, where they discover Louis, her cousin, has been hiding out all summer.

After the Dante Comet passed, the dead rose and demanded their lives back. Trouble was, not everyone was happy to see their dead relatives show up for dinner. Laws were enacted, but rarely enforced. Zombies kept at least one foot in the grave, working at menial jobs for less pay than breathers, experiencing discrimination and hatred from almost every quarter.
Jericho and Dex are zombies living very different lives. While both have jobs on a film set, Jericho is out, hired as a zombie extra, but Dex remains in the closet, passing as a breather to keep his job as a make-up artist. They keep their relationship to the shadows for fear it might out Dex, and end with both of them in jail or worse.
When a bigoted director decides the world can do with one less zombie so he can get an Oscar-worthy death scene, both Jericho and Dex are forced to reexamine their lives and make some decisions that might tilt their world on its axis.

It's Alan and Shiloh's anniversary, and Alan wants to do something special to mark the day. Lucky for him, Shiloh has a huge sweet-tooth and all Alan needs to do to make the day special is buy chocolate covered cherries and candied pecans.
Shiloh's got plans of his own, too, and Alan's sweets will make the perfect dessert for Shiloh's steaks. That is if they ever get to the food; they can't seem to keep their hands off each other. Good thing they both think that's the best way to celebrate their anniversary, after all.
