Waiting on Wednesday: Dead Silence by Kimberly Derting

****"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill at the Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.****
My pick this week is:

Dead Silence (The Body Finder, #4)
Dead Silence by Kimberly Derting
Expected release date: April 16th, 2013
from Harper Collins

Violet thought she’d made peace with her unique ability to sense the echoes of the dead and the imprints that cling to their killers…that is until she acquired an imprint of her own. Forced to carry a reminder of the horrible events of her kidnapping, Violet is more determined than ever to lead a normal life. However, the people who run the special investigative team Violet works for have no intention of letting her go.

When someone close to Violet becomes a suspect in a horrific murder, she finds herself pulled into a deadly hunt for a madman with an army of devoted followers. Violet has survived dangerous situations before, but she quickly discovers that protecting those closest to her is far more difficult than protecting herself.

The Body Finder series has been praised as a “delectable blend of mystery and romance” (The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books), a “fast-paced, compelling read” (ALA Booklist), and as “imaginative, convincing, and successful suspense” (Kirkus Reviews). With a perfect blend of romance, intrigue, and suspense, Dead Silence continues this gripping series, delivering unexpected twists that will keep readers guessing until the very last page

I fell in love with this series when I read the first page of the first book and every book makes me love it more. I know I'm going to be so sad when I turn the last page and have to say goodbye to the characters and the amazing story. I can't wait to see how Kimberly Derting wraps up one of my favorite series. If I'm being honest I hope there's lots of Jay and Violet cuteness ;)


  1. I have not read this series yet! I need to go check out the others to see what everyone is saying about them.

    My WOW

  2. I LOVE this series!!! Jay and Violet are one of my favorite literary couples because they represent everything young lov SHOULD be. :) I don't want to say goodbye either!!!! Awesome pick!

  3. I'm always SO sad when I have to end a series and say goodbye to the characters. Apparently, I've learned that I'm not very good at doing this. But it's always great to know that I'll be able to re-read. ;) But I really need to jump on the bandwagon for this series!! It sounds so fabulous.

    Ah-mazing pick Marissa! <3

  4. Ah, great great pick :D I loved the first two books, but still haven't read the third one :( But will read them all when this comes out :D And ah. Loved Kimberly's other books, The Pledge trilogy. <3 Hope you'll love it :)
    Thank you for commenting on my WoW. <3
