Goodreads Synopsis:The missing dead call to Violet. They want to be found. 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 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:The second book in the Body Finder series, Desires of the Dead is a little bit different than the first book (you can see my review for The Body Finder here). Instead of a serial killer hunting Violet, it is about a murder left unsolved.
Murder and romance is like chocolate and peanut butter, they go surprisingly good with each other. This novel is all about that and so much more. It takes us on a journey through Violet and Jay's building romance. Of course, all the years they spent together as best friends is different from all this new feelings they have for each other.
The murders are little more complicated than the first book and her ability gains so much more strength as some echoes are no longer felt through her senses. some comes to her in her sleep.
An FBI consultant is trying to gain Violet's attention to join her team. This brings her to discover more about the history on Mike's family, history that might break the family apart.
An outing in Mike's cabin in the mountains takes an unexpected turn as Violet realizes who the real killer is.
