Waiting On Wednesday: Desires of the Dead

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Title: Desires of the Dead
Author: Kimberly Derting
Publisher: Harper Collins
Genre: Paranormal, Romance, Suspense
Release Date: March 15, 2011

Goodreads Summary:

The missing dead call to Violet. They want to be found.
When Violet Ambrose's morbid ability to sense the echoes of those who've been murdered leads her to the body of a young boy, she draws the attention of the FBI. She is reluctantly pulled into an investigation that will endanger more than just her secret...but her relationship and possibly her life as well.

Why I Want This:

I'm crossing my fingers and hoping that this book will be as good as The Body Finder, if not better. The Body Finder (Click HERE to see a review) was one of those compulsively readable books, those that won't allow you to do anything productive until you reach the end of its tracks. Though it was not one of the best books I've ever read and I personally think that Violet and the plot of The Body Finder had a blander taste, I enjoyed it enough that I am eagerly anticipating the sequel. I do hope that Desires of the Dead will deliver a more shocking plot and provide even more reasons for me to love Jay Heaton :) I long to continue on with the story of Violet and Jay and I am quite curious to see what Violet's morbid "gift" will take me this time.

--> And by the way, though I find the cover very pretty, I still don't know what that thing is. Is it an echo? I had the same question about The Body Finder as well. Help?

What book are you waiting for? Please comment! I'd love to hear your thoughts! :) Have a good Wednesday!
