The Body Finder

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 bodies—or at least those that have been murdered. Since she was a little girl, she has felt the echoes that 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 the dead birds her cat had tired of playing with. But now that a serial killer has begun terrorizing her small town, and the echoes of the local girls he's claimed haunt her daily, she realizes she might be the only person who can stop him.

Despite his fierce protectiveness over her, Jay reluctantly agrees to help Violet on her quest to find the murderer—and Violet is unnerved to find herself hoping 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.

Okay, so.... I had a hard time getting into this book. So, like I always do for some stupid reason, I skipped to the end. And... Kinda liked it.
What I liked about it? The cutesy romance. Just thinking about why I liked this book makes me wanna... slap myself.
But, I will admit, it is a good concept, and I am planning on reading the sequal. Although, looking at the comments on Goodreads.com for that one, I dont think I will. But, I can trust that it will end up in my house at some point or another.
The fact that annoyed me the most about this book is the fact that Jay`s not-so-subtle attempts at flirting with her go over Violet`s head, unnoticed. I mean, clueless??
But, I did like the fact that sometimes we could get a peek into the killer`s head. But, to me, he was revealed way to early.
Anywho.. that is pretty much all I can come up with. Any comments or opinions? Review.
