The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting
HE is looking for his next victim. He can't help himself. The hunt is extravagant...making him feel so good. He looks for those that are alone, the beautiful helpless one, and takes her. But his hunting grounds have to change. Restrictions are now making him hunt in a more confined area. But he's careful, because he's been doing this for years...
Vi's friendships, especially with Jay are slowly changing. She can't shake the feeling that she wants to be more with her best friend, but at the same time is afraid of losing him as a friend if he doesn't feel the same way. What is a girl to do? And then she finds another body, this time at a party at the lake, and the imprint is calling out to her louder than ever before....
HE can't believe the body was found so quickly? What does the sheriff's niece know and how? He thought he was being smart, hunting quickly and quietly. He's decided this girl who keeps finding his body may have to be next....
What an excellent mystery novel! Not only does Derting use murder mystery as a backdrop, but she is able to deftly weave in a story about friendship, love and connections at the same time. The two even each other out, while not losing the reading to either storyline. The reader gets to know all the characters involved with each other, and will think they know who the elusive "HE" is but like all good mysteries, not until the last part of the book. And yes...there is a twist! Sensual, supernatural, suspenseful all wrapped up in a great YA novel! Highly recommended.
