The Body Finder was creepy and twisted. I would only dare read this in the warm protection of my bed.
Violet's ability to find dead bodies isn't anything new in her family. Her Mom and Dad are always there and supporting her through everything. It's also not a surprise that Violet inherited this ability because her grandmother had the same talent. When Violet starts finding bodies of dead young girls, she knows that there is a killer on the loose. Since the echo of the dead cling to the killer, Violet's the only one who can find him.
Whenever the POV switches to "the killer's", I start to get very paranoid. Even though they were creepy, I found that I enjoyed the switch of POVs a lot. I get the chance to understand how everything is happening through this disturbed man's head.
When Violet goes on these crazy trips to track down the killer she'd bring a long her best friend, Jay.
Jay & Violet. *sigh*
They have been inseparable ever since childhood. But when junior year somes around, Violet starts seeing Jay for someone other than her best friend. They’re just so darn adorable. I just love how protective they are of each other which makes things even cuter.
There were no complicated relationship issue like love triangles and such. Of course they went through the stage of not knowing if the other feels the same way and meeting other people. But they always knew they'd end up with each other. They're just.... I'm not even sure how to describe them.
The Body Finder is simply dark and sexy.
Overall Rating: 5 out of 5
