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.

(My Review): I've been looking at this book for a while and finally decided to give It a try. The book is told from a third person point of view. Violet Ambrose has been sensing weird things ever since she was eight years old when she found a dead girl in a field of their back yard. But lately she's been getting these feelings more and more because of a killer that's been killing of girls in near by town and has been coming closer to her town ever since. The books is more of a romance than a action book, but the action that's in the book is fairly good however. The way the third person told Viloet's journey and also told the killer's doing was very impressive. I haven't seen many stories that switch back and forth like that so I was a little bit shocked-in a good way. I would recommend this book for anyone who likes mystrey, romance, action, a little humor.

My rating: 4/5
The Plot: 5/5
Characters: 4/5
