The Body Finder
The Body Finder | Kimberly Derting
13 posts | 34 read | 16 to read
Violet Ambrose is grappling with two major issues: Jay Heaton and her morbid secret ability. 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 bodiesor at least those that have been murdered. Since she was a little girl, she has felt the echoes the dead leave behind in the world . . . and the imprints that attach to their killers. Violet has never considered her strange talent to be a gift; it mostly just led her to find dead birds her cat left for her. But now that a serial killer is terrorizing her small town, and the echoes of the local girls he's claimed haunt her daily, Violet realizes she might be the only person who can stop him. Despite his fierce protectiveness over her, Jay reluctantly agrees to help Violet find the murdererand Violet is unnerved by her hope that Jay's intentions are much more than friendly. But even as she's falling intensely in love, Violet is getting closer and closer to discovering a killer . . . and becoming his prey herself.

My first 16 books to go! #TBRCull

This group is a mix. A few of these titles are books O already own in a physical or electronic form, but about half are books that I no longer feel a pressing need to read. My tbr feels lighter already!

TrishB I need to do this.... 2y
DGRachel After having culled physical books across several moves and finally buying my first home, I find the prospect of TBR culling to be nauseating. I‘m rebuilding my book collection now, regretting/missing some of the books I got rid of over the last few years. I don‘t think I‘m mentally prepared for this kind of challenge, but good luck to you!! 2y
Jenny Don‘t think you‘re missing out on much. 2y
mrp27 Good call on the Meggin Cabot book. I read it and it was not the greatest read. 2y

After much back and forth I‘ve finally decided on The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting. This is the first in a series (though this reads just fine as a stand alone) that follows 16 year old Violet that has an uncanny ability to find dead bodies. She sees “echoes” that attaches to dead bodies and when she starts finding the bodies of murdered girls, she has to hunt for the killer before his “echo” fades away or she becomes the next to die.

Clare-Dragonfly Well I‘m glad you posted about this—it was the one YA mystery I thought of off the top of my head but I didn‘t want to post about it 😂. @TheFunkyBookworm 2y
RainyDayReading @Clare-Dragonfly Haha I‘m glad I did too! It seems fairly underrated/unread to me so I thought I‘d give it some love. There were two others that popped in my head but since I haven‘t read either of them yet I felt weird recommending them haha. 2y
TheFunkyBookworm Oh my! 😳 hahaha sounds interesting tho- I‘m down to try it! Thanks for participating 💜🎉 2y
RainyDayReading @TheFunkyBookworm Haha it‘s not as dark and dramatic as I make it sound 🤣 the echoes are like colors that she sees or a smell or a sound that she follows. It‘s got some high school drama and a love interest set in the background. I think in later books she winds up helping the FBI catch killers but I don‘t remember for sure. 2y

This story had me hooked from the beginning. It had me wondering what was going to happen next. I also enjoyed the parts that were told from the killer's perspective. It kept having me guess who the killer really was.⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️#TheBodyFinder #KimberlyDerting #epicreads #mystery #book #books #bookcover #bookcovers #booklove #booklover #booklovers #bookjunkie #bookhaul #bookshelf #bookporn #bookish #booksoflitsy #booknerd #nerd #bookcollection #nerdy
