Desires of the Dead by:Kimberly Derting

Publication Date: February 2011

Overview: 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.

My thoughts: Violet and Jay are back and this time Violet is keeping things to herself. I almost can't blame her, but then I would want to be safe. Everything that happens to her she hides from everyone: The threatening letter, the dead animal, strange phone calls, and finding a lost dead boy. 
Let's not forget the FBI, who know she found the boy and are trying to figure out how she found them. I think  they want her help, but she is frightened of anyone knowing the truth. 
Because she keeps everything in and doesn't share, it all come between her a Jay's relationship and they break up, but only after being intimate. 
She finally realizes that she has to lend a hand to the FBI and in the end it helps the new family in town. And her and Jay find themselves back together again...YAY

My rating: 3 stars
