The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting
OK now for a plot overview…Violet Ambrose has always had a gift (if that’s what you want to call it) that allows her to locate (sometimes against her will) the remains of people/animals that experienced a violent death. Only her family and her best friend Jay know about her strange ability. Jay and Violet have been best friends since grade school but recently Violet has been wishing for more, but she is worried that he will not feel the same way. Dwelling on her feelings for Jay becomes impossible after the discovery of a girls body…followed by other disappearances. Violet is determined to catch the killer before he can kill again…what she doesn’t know is that she may be the next on the list. With alternating view points (Violet and the killer) this book is also very suspenseful.
I love love loved this book and I am not so patiently awaiting the sequel “Desires of the Dead.” I think Kimberly Derting has a lot of talent I cant believe this is only her first novel! Amazing!!
