SYNOPSIS VIA AUTHOR WEBSITE
The Body Finder was an amazing book! It has a really unique idea, and Kimberly Derting has created quite the world for us. The romance between Jay and Violet is breathtaking, and the suspense kept me reading until a pretty late hour, so I'd recommend checking this book out if you haven't already.
Violet has a morbid ability to sense the echoes left behind by the dead, and the imprint attached to their killers. When a serial killer sets his sights on the town, Violet feels she might be able to put her ability to good use and stop him. With the help of her best friend, Jay, who she's falling in love with, Violet might be getting closer to discovering the serial killer. Only problem? Now he has his sights set on her.
The murder mystery aspect of this book was really well done. I've always loved those murder mystery TV shows, and this is even better. Know why? Not only does Kimberly Derting incorporate murder mystery, but there's a paranormal aspect and a romance. This series is in my top ten.
I liked Violet as a character. I think she dealt with her ability really well, and that's got to be a creepy thing to live with. She also had a brain. *pleased* She did make a few bad choices, but that happens to the best of us. Overall, she was a strong, smart, relatable character.
Jay was... Well, Jay was Jay. And I liked Jay. He was protective of Violet, which was really sweet. I absolutely loved the dialouge between Violet and Jay. Their relationship was very realistic and filled with flirting and tension. *insert more fangirly gushing here*
The writing, characters, and plot Derting created are amazing as is this story. I can't wait to read the next in the series, and even though I don't need to say this, I'm hooked!
