The Body Finder by: Kimberly Derting
Syopsis: 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.
Thoughts: Absolutely loved every part of this book! I started it today around lunch and just finished it! I could not put it down! The story was so unique, I loved it.
I loved how the author put the killers thoughts in here and there! It was so intriguing and so perfectly written from the minds of a killer. I was in awe of the goose bump feeling the words of the murders gave off.
This book had everything I could have asked for! Fun, parties, suspense, romance, a sexy guy, funny best friends, a biotch you want to hate, and an amazing family. The detail in this book was amazing as well! I adore when books have amazing detail.
I loved Violets character! The fact she loved to run with her ipod... Yes perfect! And Jay! Whoooo Jay baby. You became a new love of mine :)! Haha
Defiantly worth reading!!! And now... On to the next one!
