So basically this book had be bawling like a baby within the first 30 pages. BUT it is a beautiful and amazing story. I can’t recommend it enough. I have to thank Liza from WhoRUBlog for pushing me to read it and I hope you’ll go get this one and give it a try.

THE BODY FINDER (The Body Finder #1)
By: Kimberly Derting
Publication Date: March 16, 2010
This series has been a favorite of mine for a while now and if you haven’t read it you should definitely do so now. There is a paranormal spin to this series that kept me interested and wondering what would happen next. And you all know I love swoony boys and Jay is one of the swooniest…for real. Derting pulled me into the mystery and made it so I couldn’t put this book down. And then I had to immediately pick up book two. This series is now complete so you can dive right in with no delays.
Kimberly is the author of the BODY FINDER series (HarperCollins), THE PLEDGE trilogy (Simon & Schuster), and THE TAKING trilogy (HarperTeen). She lives in the Pacific Northwest, the ideal place to write anything dark or creepy…a gloomy day can set the perfect mood. She lives with her husband and their three beautiful (and often mouthy) children who provide an endless source of inspiration.
