I really loved the plot of this book. I loved Violet's ability. Not only can she sense where the dead are buried but she can also sense and taste the echo on the murderer. Her powers can be troublesome when her cat comes in from just hunting mice, or when she is around cops or war veterans, because all murders leave an echo. She found her first body when she was around 8 and now in high school some more girls bodies are showing up. Violet has decided she wants to put her ability to use and go around town to see if she can match the bodies echo to a person carrying the same echo.
Violet is also dealing with her new more than friendly feelings towards her life long best friend Jay. Over the summer Jay has grown into a uber sexy man and all of their high school is noticing. Violet doesn't want to ruin their friendship so she continues to deny her feelings. Jay is very protective of Violet and does not want her to be out hunting a serial killer. I absolutely love the best friend type of relationships. Jay was undeniably sweet and perfect for Violet. I also loved the mystery behind the killer. We get to see a few parts from his sick point of view. Definitely felt the creeps from him. Loved following Violet on her journey to catch him. Definitely will be picking up book two.
"He nudged her with his shoulder but didn’t say anything. They stayed
like that for a while, enjoying the silence of being alone and enjoying
each other’s presence. It was easy... and comfortable."
"I swear that boy can't function without you, not even at lunch."
Rating: 4/5 Stars!
