The Body Finder may be the first book in a series, but it stands pretty strongly on its own.

In Violet's world there are echoes and imprints. An echo is a sense (sound, taste, smell) of the dead, be it animal or human - but only when they have been murdered and not laid to rest. An imprint is a match of the echo that lingers strongly on the individual or animal committing the murder.

This being a young adult novel, of course it's going to have the steamy hot guy and a potential love triangle - but I was very glad to see that Kimberly Derting did not go the route of other well known YA Authors and focused instead on just one.

Overall, I really enjoyed the book - there was a good dose of a mystery/thriller, a nice jolt of feeling the frustration between Violet and Jay and the writing wasn't horrible - it was just good enough to make sure that everything kept moving quickly and, as a result, I read the book from start to finish in an afternoon. And.. it was an enjoyable afternoon.
