Book Summary from Amazon
Violet has never considered her strange talent to be a gift; it mostly just led her to find dead birds her cat left for her. But now that a serial killer is terrorizing her small town, and the echoes of the local girls he's claimed haunt her daily, Violet realizes she might be the only person who can stop him.
Despite his fierce protectiveness over her, Jay reluctantly agrees to help Violet find the murderer—and Violet is unnerved by her hope that Jay's intentions are much more than friendly. But even as she's falling intensely in love, Violet is getting closer and closer to discovering a killer . . . and becoming his prey herself.
My Review - 3
I am very disappointed that my expectations were not met. I will not be continuing this series. This book has been on my TBR list for awhile and when I saw the kindle version on sale last year I went for it. The first chapter I just knew I was in for a treat SMACK - reality, this is a true YA book.
I have to be honest YA is not my cup of tea but most thrillers I love in any genre, this to me was not a thriller but I would highly recommend to the YA genre fans. Young love, finding themselves and each other, high school stuff, blah blah, sigh, the normal YA expectation.
There were a few chapters from the mind of the serial killer. I enjoy this style so thought it was good and added another layer to the story.
The thriller was the minor story and just never got my heart racing enough to care. I actually considered it being a do not finish read but completed it because the writing is good and overall probably an amazing YA read when competing with others. This is not for the suspense fans like me.

Her first thought was that there was a body nearby. The intensity of it didn't speak to what it was so much as when it might have been left behind. 77% on kindle
