"The romance and the mystery in THE BODY FINDER were so intense that I didn't know whether to hold my breath or scream. I did know I wouldn't be getting anything done until I read the whole book." (Melissa Marr, author of WICKED LOVELY )

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 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 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.
When Violet becomes "his" prey something so shocking happens that will leave you hanging.
“Violet strained to see into the lake below. Multihued light seemed to be radiating up from beneath the water, centered among the reeds, and then diffusing outward as it reached the surface. Violet had never seen anything like it, and she knew that the spectrum of light was defying its very nature by behaving in that way. It could be only one thing. There was something dead down there.”
“Everything had just changed for Violet. Knowing this girl . . . and knowing what she was capable of doing to help, even if it was futile, and even if it turned out to be dangerous, she knew she could no longer just sit around and wait to see if--or when--they found Hailey.Violet was done waiting around for someone else to find the pyschopath who was preying on these girls. She was going to do something, even it she had to sneak around to get it done.”

He was suddenly serious, his tone determined. “We’ll never be just friends again, not if I have anything to do with it.” And then with conviction he added, “I love you too much to go back now, Vi.” It was still strange to hear him saying things like that. The words sounded so foreign to her ears, but her heart responded, as if it had been waiting a lifetime to hear them, by beating erratically.Highlighted by 14 Kindle customers

Violet felt like a princess. Not like one of Lissie’s band of nauseatingly counterfeit princesses, but like a real one. From a fairy tale. A really, really sexy fairy tale.Highlighted by 7 Kindle customers
