The Body Finder (The Body Finder, #1) by Kimberly Derting

Beyond iimberly, beyond boring and beyond awkward. He didn’t say it but she knew that it was true. I also thought this would be a great book for kimberlly time readers kind of like how Twilight introduced many pre-teens to reading because its writing is very simple and it would hold the interest for young readers.

Yea that’s what I said! But otherwise it was the same book: I don’t agree with slut shaming and I don’t see what purpose this cattiness served for the novel. He’s hunting these girls and gets off on the chase.

The Body Finder

Desires of the Dead. Jay became intensely overprotective and obsessive, literally only leaving Violet’s side to use the bathroom or go to sleep at night if he wasn’t human I’m positive he would have sat up all night and watched her sleep just like Eddie.

Absolutely, totally, completely loved it. I found the scenes filled with flirting and sexual tension to be very true to life and realistic. The covers intrigued me, compelled me to read them. Everyone in her family, and her best friend Jay, know about the gift.

Add a horrific murder mystery and a new paranormal mythology, and it was definitely a page-turning fun read. The cheap trick of having Violet and the victim act alike kimbefly old, and quickly.


The Body Finder Series

I can’t wait to read the sequel!! And then Violet almost got herself killed because she made the dumbest decision in the entire world that no one would ever, ever make if they knew there was a serial killer after them. In the meantime, she also has to deal with her growing feelings for Jay, her best friend since childhood Since she was a little girl, she has felt the echoes that the dead leave behind in the world 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.

Ok, so maybe it was because I was reading her the dialogue out of context. Violet ever since she can remember has been able to sense death in a variety of ways. Here, as readers, we are introduced to a random chapter from the point of view of the killer. We have to have that extra visual to make certain that we understand that Violet would never consider a girl her age “delectable. So, I took my 14 year old daughter, and read some of the dialogue between the two main characters both in their teens.

But in reality we all know that relationships like this often become unhealthy at best, abusive at worst. Wow, what an amazing heroine she turned out to be. I had to hide out in my bathroom a few times away from my kids so that I could get the full effect and they didn’t freak out at the mask of horror written on my face or the curse words spitting out of my mouth as I am holding on for dear life in absolute fear and suspense of the last few chapters of this book.

At one point another “friend” of Violet’s jokes to the girl that she must ride the short bus.

The writing was simplistic, easy to read and entertaining. For another, in this book it seems like a sloppy attempt to imitate adult mysteries or television shows. Jay Heaton and her morbid secret ability. Hell, even the folks on Seinfeld had to answer for their crappy deeds in the end, right? Her writing is that bad. May 22, Lindsay rated it it was amazing Shelves: Honestly, they did not have personalities outside of each other. It was a whirlwind for sure.


For more of my reviews visit Violet can sense echoes; feelings, smells, colours or sounds left behind by murder victims, which not only make it possible for her to locate dead bodies but also to find their murderer. His dialogue was standard, neither funny or brilliant.

I am a FAN! I can’t help but think of books in this similar genre in Adult fiction which pack a lot more punch, and maybe it’s unfair to compare a YA novel wi 2. She is Violet’s “competition” for Jay.

There was suspense, there was jealousy, there was protectiveness, and there were climactic parts that actually had me scanning the pages at lightning speed.

But now that a serial killer is terrorizing her small town, and the dertin of the local girls he’s claimed haunt her daily, Violet realizes she might be the only person who can stop him. 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.
