Waiting on Wednesday
The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting
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.
An online friend told me about this book last night, and in like 10 words she summarized it, and made me extremely anxious to read it. She's already read it because she's lucky enough to managed a bookstore. She's always got the best book recommendations, and I sincerely thank her for this one!
The Body Finder comes out March 16th, 2010.
**Quick note :: I know I missed Teaser Tuesday, but I will do that tomorrow have a one time Teaser Thursday, lol. I'm still working on some reviews, too. Most are Adult Novel reviews but I managed to fit in a few YA Novels lately, so I'll add those first! Also I have been updating my 2009 Book List,a nd my Upcoming Reviews list.
