B is for Book Review via Pictures!

With the police at a loss, can Violet use her ability to stop the killer,
or is she in danger of becoming his next victim?

This book had a sweet love story that I really enjoyed reading. So often you've got characters getting excited about the new, mysterious guy (or girl) and it was somewhat refreshing to have a character fall in love with someone they've known for years and years.

Ms Derting was pretty good at keeping me guessing who the serial killer was, and just when I thought I'd possibly figured it out -- wait, no, that can't be it... And it wasn't!

I think Jay is my second favourite love-interest-from-a-YA-novel -- after Jace from The Mortal Instruments -- which is interesting because Jace and Jay are VERY different characters.

(I think this is the shortest review I've ever posted. Hope you enjoyed!)
