Review: The Body Finder- Kimberly Derting

I had heard some good things about this series so I decided to give it a try as I needed to read more mysteries for my hogwarts reading challenge. I'm really glad I did pick this up and I look forward to the other books in the series.

In the book the main character Violet has a strange ability. She can find dead people. Their bodies call to her till they are properly buried. She can also see auras on people who have killed other people. Only her family and her best friend Jay know about her ability. Girls in her town have suddenly gone missing and it is up to Violet to help the police find not only the poor girls bodies but the killer.

Wow this book was just great. There are great moments of suspense and romance. The ending is not obvious like you find in some books. I really really loved this book and already have the next book in the series lined up to read. This is great for anyone who enjoys young adult mysteries with just a tinge of the paranormal. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars!
