Desires fo the Dead by Kimberly Derting

This review may contain spoilers of previous books in the series.
Summary:(from book jacket) Violet can sense the echoes of those who've been murdered- and the matching imprint that clings to their killers. Only those closest to her know what she is capable of, but when she discovers the body of a young boy she also draws the attention of the FBI, threatening her entire way of life. As Violet works to keep her morbid ability a secret, she unwittingly becomes the object of a dangerous obsession. Normally she'd turn to her best friend Jay, except that now that they are officially a couple, the rules of their relationship seem to have changed. And with Jay spending more and more time with his new friend Mike, Violet is left with too much time on her hands as she wonders where things went wrong. But when she fills the void by digging into Mike's tragic family history, she stumbles upon a dark truth that could put everyone in danger.
Review: This is the second book in the Body Finder series and I thought it was a pretty good book. It was somewhat similar to the first book but different enough to keep things interesting. The ending was climatic and had me hooked on reading until I was done. This book definitely has the same creepy and haunted tones to it that Body Finder does, which I liked alot. my main problem with this book was the brief chapters that were not from Violet's point of view. Although, they were interesting to read it spoiled the surprise of finding out who was behind the things going on in this book. I had things figured out long before any of the characters did. Of course this doesn't really take away from how awesome the ending is. Jay is probably my favorite character in this series. He is so sweet and adorable. I liked Violet as a main character as well, but she did some things that were really annoying to me. I wanted to yell at her to get over herself and move on. i am also really curious about Rafe, hopefully more will be explained in the next book.
