Author: Kimberly Derting
Series: The Body Finder #1
I saw this recommended on one of the book blogs
I follow. And the ebook just happened to
be $2.99 so I downloaded it!
Violent has a pretty morbid talent: she can
sense the dead, especially if they left the world unjustly (murdered). But her talent isn’t just the ability to find
the dead, it also marks the killer.
Hardly anyone knows her ability, only her parents, uncle, and her best
friend since they were little, Jay.
Jay and Violet’s relationship is about
to change, both are undeniably in love with each other and Jay will do anything
to keep Violet away from trouble. And it
seems trouble follows Violet everywhere.
A serial killer is on the loose in their small town, and Violet is beckoned
to some of the girls’ bodies. Saddened
by the murder of someone she knew, Violet sets off to find the killer and
remarkably finds him in the most unexpected way. But with this killer off the streets, is
Violet and her secret really safe? And
will Jay and Violet’s relationship make it?
What I LIKED about this book
I loved the relationship between Jay and
Violet. It was so sweet and easy to
believe. I loved the paranormal aspect
of this book. If I have to read a book
where kids go to high school I’d like some fantasy, and The Body Finder
delivered here. It was a fast read that
made me want the second book so I could be with Violet even more.
What I DISLIKED about this book
It’s a series…Yipee and darn all at the same
Overall I’m going to give The Body Finder 4.5
out of 5 stars. It wasn’t my all time
favorite book this year but it was still a thriller and a page-turner. I’d recommend this book to fans of romance
and fantasy. It did remind me of the
book The Lovely Bones, so if you enjoyed the premise behind that book I think
you’ll enjoy this one. I will read the
next book in the series and report back!
