DESIRES OF THE DEAD Jacket Copy!!!

THE MISSING DEAD CALL TO VIOLET.
THEY WANT TO BE FOUND.


Copy from the ARC (aka. the short version, because I tease like that!):

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.

Actual teaser:

Violet slipped inside without notice. She was too preoccupied to care if anyone spotted her. The gentle sound of the harps grew stronger, until the vibrations were nearly painful and Violet found herself gritting her teeth. It was compelling, this echo . . . this death. And Violet was so close.


And just because I love it, here's the cover...AGAIN:

By the way, the cover is just as beautiful as the one for The Body Finder, if not more and I cannot wait to see Desires of the Dead on the shelves next to TBF.

Great teaser, although it should probably say "relationship with Jay" or "relationships" :-)

Heidi Willis said...

So fun! What a great job they did on the copy!

Hard to believe it's all moving along so fast.

Heather said...

There is something about your covers that I love. They're simple, but they draw you in. I hate to admit that it was the cover of The Body Finder that made me buy it, but I'm glad that that I did because I loved the story. I made my book group read it as well and amazingly every single one of them enjoyed the read.
