Title: The Body Finder
Author: Kimberly Derting
Series: The Body Finder (book #1)
Next in series: Desires of the Dead
My Rating: 4 Stars
My Synopsis: Violet Ambrose can see, hear, smell, and even taste an imprint left by a dead animal or person as well as the matching imprint carried by the individual responsible for that animal or person's death. She lives in a small town, where teenage girls suddenly begin disappearing. Violet stumbles across one of their bodies and becomes involved in the search for the killer whom only she can identify.
My Review: This is a great debut novel.
The plot elements are unique and engrossing. The characterization is excellent, especially the relationship between Violet and her best friend, Jay. My one small quibble is the lack of tension and build up of suspense toward the end, but this does not detract from the overall reading experience.
