The Last Echo by Kimberly Derting

The Last Echo:
In the end, all that's left is an echo...

Violet kept her morbid ability to sense dead bodies a secret from everyone except her family and her childhood-best-friend-turned-boyfriend, Jay Heaton. That is until forensic psychologist Sara Priest discovered Violet's talent and invited her to use her gift to track down murderers. 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. When Violet discovers the body of a college girl killed by "the girlfriend collector" she is determined to solve the case. But now the serial killer is on the lookout for a new "relationship" and Violet may have caught his eye....

With each new book in The Body Finder series I've become completely attached to each of the characters, and from start to finish, I loved this book by Kimberly Derting. I enjoy Kimberly's writing style and her use of the villain's perspective as well. It adds a definite creepiness to the book that gave me shivers. This book was a non-stop thriller, and I detested having to put it down so I could go to work. The tension between Rafe and Violet finally comes to a head when she forces a confrontation after learning more about his abilities. Things are becoming more dangerous for Violet as she works with a team of psychics used by the authorities to solve crimes. And after being victimized Violet chooses to leave the team, only another threat may sway her decision in the future.

  1. I like Violet so much because she's just a regular girl. Sure, she can find bodies but she isn't a super hero. I thnik this novel, out of all of them, really shows this. Working with the team, Violet is stretching her time thin. The late nights, the stressful cases and new friendships on top of school, a boyfriend, older friends and parents is really wearing on Violet. Not to mention, poor Violet has two enemies to deal with this time and is tested in everyway. I liked that she didn't magically know how to defend herself. She definitely has some skills and uses those to the best of her advantage but she hasn't morphed into a black belt between books. For me, this really stressed her normalness despite her ability.
