The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting - Review

Violet Ambrose senses dead bodies – really. Growing up she was always finding dead animals and reburying them in her garden so she, and they could be at rest. Once she found the body of a murdered girl – and yes, she always knew when they had been murdered.

Now in high school, Violet is driving herself crazy as she develops an overwhelming crush on her best friend, Jay. They’ve been friends for years, hang out together all the time, know each other’s secrets. But now it’s awkward. And so many other girls at her school are crushing on him too. What is she to do?

But then a serial killer moves into town and the bodies of those dead girls get under her skin, call to her, and Violet is determined to help find the killer and stop him, with or without Jay’s help.

Beautifully written, this is story that grips you by the throat and doesn’t let go. You want to hunt with Violet and find the killer. And the romance simply sizzles. If this is Kimberly Derting’s debut novel, I look forward to reading whatever comes next!

It sounds like a remarkable read. The summary sounds a little creepy but I'll defiantly give it a try. Great post!
