If it hadn’t been for him The Body Finder 8 55 Nov 20, I really enjoyed the mystery and liked how Kimberly Derting summed the book up, but I would have liked maybe just a little more suspense towards the ending and ghe finding out hat as ths going on. And because Violet was incapable of knowing her gift and she was still stupid enough to go forth with her plan to hunt the hunter, she was openly and willingly putting Jay, her beloved at risk.

For a serial killer book, I didn’t find it creepy at all, and I missed being on the edge of my seat with a constant feeling of suspense while reading certain scenes. When someone close to Violet becomes a suspect in a horrific murder, she finds herself pulled into a deadly hunt for a madman with an army of devoted followers. I thought for sure that would do it. Especially the whole homecoming event was seriously over the top. Aug 04, Flannery rated it liked it Shelves: It would have rather comical to see me in person.

Knight in shinning armor.

The Body Finder Series | Author Kimberly Derting

He looked at her suspiciously. Somehow, she’s begun to notice not just how funny and smart he is, but also how hot and sexy he is. The first is her confusing new feelings for her childhood best friend Jay. It started out as finding dead animals, but one particularly horrifying experience at age eight had Violet discovering the body of a young girl.

Absolutely, totally, completely loved it. 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. I’m definitely buying the sequel! Review quote First time novelist Derting has written a suspenseful mystery and sensual love story that will captivate readers who enjoy authentic high school settings, snappy dialogue, sweet romance, and heart stopping drama.


The Body Finder

The writing is spectacular and believable, telling the story of every mothers’ worst nightmare. You know, books like these really make me stop and ask book lovers like myself a really important question.

Violet obdy that maybe she is the only one who can find and stop him. The blurb sent to the editor: View all 10 comments. But otherwise it was the same book: Back cover copy Violet Ambrose is grappling with two major issues: I will not read the second book, and I doubt that I’ll read anything else by Kimberly Derting.

View all 23 comments. But, as you can see, I gave it three stars. It felt real for once, you get know derrting Vi loved Jay – and it was not just a silly crush over his messy hair, or deep eyes or any other thing like that – and you get to love him too for being such a sweet guy. Jay Heaton and her morbid secret ability.

I had to hide boxy 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 bodu 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 kimbetly. That was the creepiest part, it really showed how sadistic and psycho he was and how he showed no remorse for taking innocent girls’ lives.

My last issue with The Body Finder involves the big twist at boddy end The only redeeming factor I found was Jay, who is the only character the author seemed to have put much effort into.

I think everybody should try this book, it has everything imo, murder, mystery, love, and snark what more could you ask for?? OMG, I could write a story on this guy and it would be a whole book in length. The more she tries to convince everyone around her that she doesn’t have a thing for Jay, the harder it is to convince herself of the same thing.


The chapters written in the killer’s point of view are downright creepy and scary. An interesting, new idea of a girl who can find dead bodies by sensing “echos” certain sounds or smells or sights connected to each death.

The Body Finder : Kimberly Derting :

The covers intrigued me, compelled me to read them. Secondly, someone is abducting and killing young girls in the area around where Violet lives. Anyone old enough to read content about a serial killer murdering teenage girls will not be drawn into the writing quality here. He thinks like a hunter, referring to himself as the predator and the girls as his prey.

Now, on to one of my favorite aspects of The Body Finder: Lists with This Book. And the part that really freaked her out, the part that caught her completely off guard, is that he wasn’t alone. Okay, just a little bit more gushing. One would rationally think that having a supernatural power and being caught up in string of murder I consider the main theme of this book to be Priorities Out of Whack, or Which Story Am I Reading?

How fucking convenient that one only wants to enjoy the chase without the messy killing, and the other loves to kill but is too lazy to get his own girls? He didn’t say it but she knew that it was true. I wanted to punch her in the face. Despite this morbid ability, Violet has always had the support of her family and her best friend, Jay.

We start off with a young Violet finding the body of a dead child. Three women every day are murdered by someone they are dating or married to. Some of my favorite quotes: She put people’s lives in danger because of her stubbornness.
