The Body Finder

by Kimberly Derting

Body finderThis book details the life of teenager Violet Ambrose, who has had a gift- an ability to sense the bodies of the dead, ever since she was a child. When a serial killer begins to terrorize the town she lives in, Violet has to put this gift to use, while at the same time falling in love with her best friend Jay, and coping with the challenges high school presents.

I really liked this book. The Body Finder is a novel full of both romance and suspense, but they fit well together and enhanced the book. The novel went by at just the right place, and the characters were generally pretty believable. Interestingly, it tells the perspective of not only Violet, but the serial killer as well. The author wrote in a way that made you feel the emotion in the book.

I highly recommend this book for its outstanding writing. Those wanting a solid suspenseful love story will be pleased with The Body Finder. Once you pick it up, it's hard to put down.
