THE BODY FINDER
This is a refreshing take on paranormal romance, although Violet's crush on Jay sometimes overpowers the suspense storyline, and readers will want them to get together already. The point of view switch between Violet and the killer is interesting, upping the creepy factor. A strong ending rounds out the read.
Ever since she was a little girl, Violet has had the power to sense the dead, or the "echoes" they leave behind. It's never seemed special, until now. A serial killer is on the loose, and Violet feels it's her duty to stop him using her powers. But how can she focus on stopping a killer when she's falling hopelessly in love with her best friend?
