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.

Could not put it down! I finished this book about a couple hours ago and I still can't stop thinking about it. The mystery the suspense. And even the perfect boyfriend. All these things made The Body Finder very captivating.

Although I pretty much knew where the story was going I couldn't help feeling a little scare for Violet as the story progressed. Kimberly Derting  gave me goose bumps. Whether, I was reading about the creepy murderer or a kiss shared by Violet and Jay, . Speaking of Jay, can I say just how perfect he was? 
I can see why Violet fell in love with him. Who wouldn't?

Not only did the story have a great plot, but characters were interesting enough to make me want to get to know them better. Each character in the book had a unique personality that made them stand out on their own. 

I can't wait to get my hands on the next installment........Desires of the Dead. The title itself sounds thrilling and exciting!
