The Body Finder Review
The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting
Description from goodreads:
Violet Ambrose is grappling with two major issues: Jay Heaton and her morbid secret ability. While the sixteen-year-old is confused by her new feelings for her best friend since childhood, she is more disturbed by her "power" to sense dead bodies—or at least those that have been murdered. Since she was a little girl, she has felt the echoes the dead leave behind in the world . . . and the imprints that attach to their killers.
Violet has never considered her strange talent to be a gift; it mostly just led her to find dead birds her cat left for her. But now that a serial killer is terrorizing her small town, and the echoes of the local girls he's claimed haunt her daily, Violet realizes she might be the only person who can stop him.
Despite his fierce protectiveness over her, Jay reluctantly agrees to help Violet find the murderer—and Violet is unnerved by her hope that Jay's intentions are much more than friendly. But even as she's falling intensely in love, Violet is getting closer and closer to discovering a killer . . . and becoming his prey herself.
Violet has a power to sense murdered dead bodies, she feels their echoes and the imprints left behind on the killers. Jay is Violet's best friend, and lately Violet has been getting some pretty strange feelings for him, good thing it's not one sided. So when Violet becomes the target of the murderer killing girls in town, Jay protects her and helps her find the killer.
this book has been one I have been wanting to read for a long time It was good, but I was a little disappointed. I liked that I got to see the point of view from the killer too, and Violet. I would never want the ability to sense murdered bodies, unless it would help someone or if it was someone I love, but otherwise no. I liked Jay and thought they were really cute together, but I was slightly bored at times. I will be reading the sequal. 4/5
