The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting

Goodreads Summary:

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:

This is interesting and captivating book. It’s a little bit mystery and a little bit of a love story. It also has an ounce of paranormal with Violet’s tendencies to hear/feel the echo of dead bodies.

Some of the book had me on the edge of my seat. Also there were a couple parts where I wanted to yell at Violet (oh wait, I actually did yell at her and my husband thought I was nuts, haha) because she was being dumb and putting herself into bad situations. I was definitely wrapped up in the book and I'm looking forward to reading the Desires of the Dead!
