The Body Finder

The Body Finder

by Kimberly Derting


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.

Isn’t Jay the perfect boyfriend ever? 😀

I just LOVED the romance in this book. It felt real for once, you get know why Vi loved Jay – and it was not just a silly crush over his messy hair, or deep eyes or any other thing like that – and you get to love him too for being such a sweet guy.

That’s because he is so nice to her, always supportive, understanding her (no need for words) and so romantic, and funny.. They are perfect for each other and you get to feel that. For the first time I felt in love with a character. Some say that he is “too perfect”, but from time to time too perfect is just.. perfect.

The suspence/mistery part was great too (not so dark anyways) and I liked the chapters from the “hunter”‘s perspective. I feel that the action from the ending was not that great (not that much action and a bit rushed), but that’s just a little minus in this equation.
5 stars already, yeah, it’s a great book.
I just need more, can’t wait for the sequel!

PS: did I say how much I liked Jay?

    Yes, it’s more about the romance and it is really sweet. More people are annoyed by this because they want more mystery and less romance, but I’m with you in this, because I love romantic stories 😀
