Why does this horrible book exist????????? It’s hard to explain, but it’s like when the author gives you a play by play of what’s going on instead of letting you decipher what it all means and then adding a quote at the end of the explanation in response to what’s ‘happened’.

Goodreads is the world’s largest site for readers with over 50 million reviews. I normally don’t read murder mysteries. It would have rather comical to see me in person. The Last Echo Jessica Almasy. There was nothing gentle or reassuring about the contact, it was meant more to guide than to comfort her, as he led her out of the mall to the car. Of course a couple of times I wanted to backhand him for being a douche.

I did know I wouldn’t be getting anything done until I read the whole book. There are numerous interactions between Violet and a boy who is not her love interest but rather an obstacle before her love interest. Mar 21, Melissa Marr rated it really liked it. Derting’s book has an interesting premise; her main character, Violet, can sense the location of murder victims.

It was maddening to read an entire book where the priorities are on making out instead of making it out alive. The body finder had everything I look for in a book; a little bit of romance and not only were the main characters amazing and the plot intriguing, but Kimberly Derting’s writing style really added to the thrilling side of the novel. It drives me crazy when the author, Kimberly Derting, wrote in findef outrageous, charmless, over-the-top “Tell, Not Show” style.


I guess if you are in your teens, this book would be original because you have nothing to compare it to.

For another, in this book it seems like a sloppy attempt to imitate adult mysteries or television shows.

Fans of Bella Swan. Things just kind of happen around her. The Body Finder Eileen Stevens.

Desires of the Dead Kimberly Derting. Not surprisingly, I picked it up right when I got up the next morning and finished it! That’s all I have to say. Okay, end of maniacal gushing about how awesome this book is. This is a conversation being had at boy table of girls. She has the full support and understanding of both her parents and her best friend, Jay Heaton, so she’s never had to deal with this talent all alone.

Shhhhh, don’t tell her! That made it a huge let down after building suspense around every other male in the book. 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.

I also liked the included chapters from the killer’s perspective.

The Body Finder Series

Yea that’s what I said! The Body Finder was one of those books that I couldn’t put down – until I forced myself. She read it and raved about it and told me I had to read it now! Not only was it annoying that all of the other female characters in the novel apparently lost all sense of themselves when Jay was in the room and only cared about fighting other girls for his affections ughit was also annoying that Violet inwardly boxy these girls and then turned around and did the exact same thing herself.

Violet dealt with her ability much better than I ever would – she is a very strong, resilient individual. A great and original novel, with a strong female protag and a believable romance! Does laughing hysterically at the stupidity of this count? Her love interest, Jay is no better. The cheap trick of having Violet and the victim act alike gets old, and quickly. Although, she was an idiot at the end of the book and I practically yelled at her for she did.


Since she was a little girl, she has felt the echoes the dead leave behind in the world. The Body Finder is an unfortunate example of wasted potential. What was worth while in this book? And because Violet was incapable of knowing her gift and she was still stupid enough to go forth with her plan to hunt the hunter, she was openly and willingly putting Jay, her beloved at risk.

Jul 12, Jennifer Kjmberly rated it it was amazing Shelves: Also, I found it somewhat disappointing that there wasn’t even a list of suspects, so that I as a reader had no possibility to guess who the murderer could be. If I could, I would thw it kimberlly my memory and go back and read it all over again, just to experience it anew. Firstly, I found the serial boxy and murder mystery aspect of the book really well done.

V iolet kept her morbid ability to rinder dead bodies a secret from everyone except her family and her childhood-best-friend-turned-boyfriend, Jay Heaton. Kimbery fact, it sucked. This year, though, things are about to hte. Did I mention that I really like Jay yet??!!

Secondly, someone is abducting and killing young girls in the area around where Violet lives. Looks like he has competition. Violet can sense echoes; feelings, smells, colours or sounds left behind by murder victims, which not only make it possible for her to locate dead bodies but also to find their murderer.
