Suspense, thriller, mystery, plus a little romance ; Perfect! It was awesome!! I loved this book. Absolutely, totally, completely loved it. I want to, as I used to say when I was seven, marry this book.
If I could, I would erase it from my memory and go back and read it all over again, just to experience it anew. And, right this minute, I would gladly give up either of my children to have another book featuring Violet and Jay to read right Okay, end of maniacal gushing about how awesome this book is.
Since reading about serial killers is one of my favorite pastimes no cruel jokes about my tormented psyche here, please , I knew before I even began reading the story that it was probably going to be great. It also deals with a teen who can sense death. A sound, a smell, a feeling, a presence - somehow, ever since she was little, Violet Ambrose could find things that had died.
It started out as finding dead animals, but one particularly horrifying experience at age eight had Violet discovering the body of a young girl. So far, Violet has never been overly-traumatized by her special ability. This year, though, things are about to change. Secondly, someone is abducting and killing young girls in the area around where Violet lives. With the ability to sense not only those that have recently died, but the lingering effects of death on those that have caused it, Violet is determined to figure out who is wreaking havoc on her town.
But as almost always happens in cases like this, Violet and Jay find themselves up against something - or someone - a whole lot more crafty and cunning than they could have imagined. Okay, just a little bit more gushing. I have to give Kimberly Derting the highest praise for writing a story that never, ever patronizes its intended readers. And please, Ms. These are two of my favorite new characters, and I really, really need to read another story featuring them!! An interesting, new idea of a girl who can find dead bodies by sensing "echos" certain sounds or smells or sights connected to each death.
A serial killer mystery with lots of twists to keep you reading and a great romance between her and her boyfriend, too. This was a believeable tale that I could not put down. If this is the first in a series, I wonder how she can top this with what comes next. Close X Learn about new offers and get more deals by joining our newsletter Sign up now.
The Body Finder
Why I read It: I heard it was so creeptastic. Violet, outwardly your average high school girl, has a secret that only a few close to her know. She has the ability to hear the echos of the dead whose lives were wrongly cut short at the hands of others. Their killers, unbeknownst to them, carry their own unique imprint that matches that of their victims that are also sensed by Violet. These bodies seek her out so that they can be uncovered and be at peace. But what happens when a serial killer is on the loose too close to home?
