Kimberly Derting recently revealed the title and cover art for the third book in the Body Finder series. Check it out:
Coming April 17, 2012!
Violet kept her morbid ability to sense dead bodies a secret from everyone except her family and her childhood-best-friend-turned-boyfriend, Jay Heaton. That is until forensic psychologist Sara Priest discovered Violet’s talent and invited her to use her gift to track down murderers. Now, as she works with an eclectic group of individuals—including mysterious and dangerously attractive Rafe—it’s Violet’s job to help those who have been murdered by bringing their killers to justice. When Violet discovers the body of a college girl killed by “the girlfriend collector” she is determined to solve the case. But now the serial killer is on the lookout for a new “relationship” and Violet may have caught his eye....
The cover art fits well with the first two books, and it's very eye-catching. However, with this flower-on-black motif the books don't really stand apart from each other -- do you know what I mean? All the covers kind of look the same. HOWEVER, Kimberly Derting said that the color of the flower has a lot of significance for the book, so perhaps I'll appreciate it more once I read it. I absolutely LOVE the title, though. The Last Echo. Isn't that haunting and kind of strangely romantic? Plus, if you know anything about the series, it raises a lot of questions. The LAST echo?! Does Violet turn off her gift? Does she die? It makes you want to know what it means, right?! Kimberly says it "captures the heart of this storyline," so it's definitely more than just some nifty wordplay!
What do you think? Which do you love more -- the cover or the title?
Here are the first two books for comparison:
