Book review - the body finder by Kimberly Derting

The Body Finder (The Body Finder, #1)The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

September 6 -September 30
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 that 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 the dead birds her cat had tired of playing with. But now that a serial killer has begun terrorizing her small town, and the echoes of the local girls he's claimed haunt her daily, she realizes she might be the only person who can stop him.

Despite his fierce protectiveness over her, Jay reluctantly agrees to help Violet on her quest to find the murderer—and Violet is unnerved to find herself hoping 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.

Review - Violet has this gift she can find dead bodies she gets a feeling it could be a taste or a smell she got the gift from her grandmother and the people who kill have that Ecco on them when violet was eight she found a dead body years later she is living with this secret the only people who know are her mom dad aunt and uncle and her best friend Jay who she now has feelings for he sort of changed from they guy she's known for years he's starting change into a guy and the girls at school are starting to notice also .

Favorite quotes -
Jay decided that it was his turn to gloat . You pined for me he asked stupid grin and all. Violet hit him on the arm shut up ! She shook her head I'm pretty sure she was talking about you anyway.

“I was just waiting for you to want me as much as I wanted you.” His words were quiet but carried one hell of an impact. “I knew we were going to be together; it was just a matter of time. I kept hoping that you would figure it out. But for a smart girl, you’re a little dense, Vi. I kept bringing up Lissie Adams, and showing you the notes she was leaving me, hoping that you’d get pissed enough to finally admit how you felt about me.”
―The Body Finder

“He loved her.
Jay Heaton, her best friend since childhood was in love with her. He didn't say it but she knew that it was true.
And the part that really freaked her out, the part that caught her completely off guard, is that he wasn't alone. Because even though she'd been denying it for a long, long time, it had always been there... waiting beneath the surface of their friendship. And now that it was out there was no going back.
And it was so weird to even be thinking it but...... she was in love with him too.”
― Kimberly Derting, The Body Finder
