The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting (Review #10)

The Body Finder by Kimbery Derting
Pages: 327 pages
Rating: 5/5 stars
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 that 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 the dead birds her cat had tired of playing with. But now that a serial killer has begun terrorizing her small town, and the echoes of the local girls he's claimed haunt her daily, she realizes she might be the only person who can stop him.

Despite his fierce protectiveness over her, Jay reluctantly agrees to help Violet on her quest to find the murderer—and Violet is unnerved to find herself hoping 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.

So the beginning starts off explaining Violets 'powers.' It explains that's her power is that she can sense dead people. When she was little she found a body in a lake. And now that same killer is trying to find her. 
I love how it went into the POV of the killer. It really gave insight into his mind and showed just how crazy he was. This is probably one of my favorite books I've read this year. I really loved this book and cannot wait to read Desires of the Dead (which I am currently reading! yay!) 
The characters are well-developed and develop more throughout the story which I love! You can relate to the characters and the powers that Violet has is amazing! This is a must read book! I recvend it to everyone! 


“Multihued light radiated up from beneath the water, centered among the reeds, and then diffusing outward as it reached the surface. Violet had never seen anything like it, and she knew that the spectrum of light was defying its very nature by behaving in that way.

It could only be one thing.

There was something dead down there.”
