Review: The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting - The Body Finder #1

The Body Finder The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A gripping tale of a girl with a morbid ability that could lead her to a killer . . . and the boy who would never let anything happen to her.

Fiercely protective of her, Jay agrees to help Violet search for the murderer. But even as she's falling in love, Violet is getting closer to discovering a killer . . . and becoming his prey herself.
Sixteen-year-old Violet Ambrose is grappling with two major issues: Jay Heaton and her unusual so-called gift. While her confusing feelings for her best friend are new, she has been able to sense dead bodies—or at least those that have been murdered—and the imprints that attach to their killers since she was a little girl. Violet has never considered her ability useful, but now that a serial killer has begun terrorizing her small town she realizes she might be the only person who can stop him.

What I think:
I liked this book and I didn't like it at the same time. The beginning took me a long time to get through. The romance in this book was the only reason I kept reading and I loved that part of the book. The story was okay, but I didn't like the general theme, Violets gift wasn't that great of an addition to the book for me. Maybe it wasn't my thing. I won't be reading the rest of this series, but this book was okay. If you like the kind of fantasy used in this book it'll be a great read for you. Kimberly Derting is a great author and I loved the way she writes.
