The Body Finder Series | Author Kimberly Derting

For some time af This book sucked. B efore Rafe met body-finding Violet Ambrose and joined her team at the Center, there was another girl. The gesture was sweet and a little possessive. View all 11 comments. For the first time I felt in love with a character: Evan Holden IDK why it exists. Although, you guessed it, corny, I loved every minute they were together and every minute leading up to it.

I couldn’t even have the lights off because I was so chilled to the bone by the ending. There is also a “friend” of Violet’s whose only purpose is to be the “stupid” friend who never gets anyone’s jokes and doesn’t understand anything.

For another, in this book it seems like a sloppy attempt to imitate adult mysteries or television shows. Anyone old fijder to read content about a serial killer murdering teenage girls will not be drawn into the writing quality here. I was actually shocked to be so drawn in by a character in the 3rd person but Violet certainly had mine after the first 50 or so pages.


The Body Finder Series

The more she tries to convince everyone around her that she doesn’t have a thing for Jay, the harder it is to convince herself of the same thing. Derting doesn’t do that – her story is scary, sexy, emotional, and downright riveting at all times; she never “writes down” to the teen or young adult who will pick up the book. Somehow, she’s begun to notice not just how funny and smart he is, but also how hot and sexy he is.

We have to have that extra visual to make certain that we understand that Violet would never consider a girl her age “delectable. I mean, damnthis girl’s consistent.

Now, on to one of my favorite aspects of The Body Finder: Did I mention that I really like Jay yet??!! But now that a serial killer is terrorizing her small town, and the echoes of the local girls he’s claimed haunt her daily, Obdy realizes she might be the only person who can stop kimnerly. However, in a novel, it doesn’t work so well. Nothing like a good dose of ableism on top of all of that slut shaming. Her books were published before yours did!

I can’t wait to read the sequel!! There was one twist I won’t spoil. I am serious, from start to end all I can see is these girls kimbsrly about dresses, makeup, who is dating who, and how to get themselves a boyfriend. With or without Jay’s help, she plans to follow her senses wherever tinder take her, hoping that they’ll lead her to the killer so that she can point him out to her uncle, who happens to be the sheriff.

Does laughing hysterically at the stupidity of this count? Two stars because it was compelling enough for me to finish, although I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone else.

I’ve been in two different funks lately-either the books I am reading are SO good that those following don’t stand a chance or I’ve been reading the same old same old and a change of pace is welcoming.

Although, she was an idiot at the end of the book and I practically yelled at her for she did. It was mesmerizing, intense, suspenseful, romantic, haunting I will not read the second book, and I doubt that I’ll read anything else by Kimberly Derting. Now, as she works with an eclectic group of individuals—including mysterious and dangerously attractive Rafe—it’s Violet’s job to help those who have been murdered by bringing their killers to justice.

If you were interested in making yourself suffer, then go ahead and read this book. This year, though, things are about to change.
