My Life as a White Trash Zombie by Diana Rowland

Since I liked the Demon Series by Diana Rowland I decided to try another of hers.  I liked this one.  Angel wakes up in the hospital.  There is nothing wrong with her but she is sure that she was in a car accident.  The nurse tells her that a policeman found her naked on the side of the road.  No she was not assaulted.  She gets a bag with clothing and a few bottles of some chunky liquid AND a note.  It says drink one of the bottles every other day.  Angel is instructed to go apply for a job at the coroner's office the next morning.  If she doesn't she will violate her probation and get sent to jail.
For the first time, she is not hooked on booze and/or drugs.  She gets to work and starts liking her job.  But what is up? Then she gets another note on her car - if you crave it, eat it.  Weird.  Because she has been craving human brains!!  What!!

From the back cover:
Angel Crawford is a loser
Living with her alcoholic deadbeat dad in the swamps of southern Louisiana, she's a high school dropout with a pill habit and a criminal record who's been fired from more crap jobs than she can count. Now on probation for a felony, it seems that Angel will never pull herself out of the downward spiral her life has taken.
That is, until the day she wakes up in the ER after overdosing on painkillers. Angel remembers being in an horrible car crash, but she doesn't have a mark on her. To add to the weirdness, she receives an anonymous letter telling her there's a job waiting for her at the parish morgue--and that it's an offer she doesn't dare refuse.
Before she knows it she's dealing with a huge crush on a certain hunky deputy and a brand new addiction: an overpowering craving for brains. Plus, her morgue is filling up with the victims of a serial killer who decapitates his prey--just when she's hungriest!
Angel's going to have to grow up fast if she wants to keep this job and stay in one piece. Because if she doesn't, she's dead meat.
