Review: The Last Echo by Kimberly Derting

The Last Echo (The Body Finder, #3)The Last Echo by Kimberly Derting
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

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....

Maybe 3.25ish? I'm totally in love with Jay this series, but this one lacked something the others had. I really, REALLY hope the author finds a way for Jay to be more involved in the next installment. I missed Jayolet!! I was also disappointed that their realtionship cooled off from the hotness of Desires of the Dead. You can't give us passion and naked Jay then take it away!!

I heart Kimberly Derting for not completely traveling down the love triangle route, she teases it, but doesn't totally go there. THANK GOD!! Let's just hope it stays that way in the future. If she does, The Last Echo just may be my "Last Book"!

Don't get me wrong...I LOVE this series and totally recommend it, but every series tends to have its "red headed step child" and for me that was The Last Echo. The author will leave you screaming for the sequel with an allstar cliffhanger ending, but I was expecting more from this book!
