TBF3 UNVEILED!!!!

So I was thinking it was time to let you in on the whole secret title thing, since I’m sorta tired of calling the third Body Finder book the “third Body Finder." Or TBF3. (Those are both super lame titles, by the way.)

My editor, my husband, both my daughters, my son, and my friends and family spent FOREVER trying to come up with the right title for this book because I really wanted it to be meaningful to the story, a little creepy (of course), and also tie in with the other two books. Sounds easy, right? Wrong, it was so hard and I think we tossed around something like a million titles, or at least it felt that way. And then it happened...

We finally found THE ONE (and no, it’s not called The One, but hey, that’s not bad either…wait, never mind!). Anyway, I love, love my new title!! It really does capture the heart of this storyline and makes me...well, squee!

Are you ready???

Wait for it...

THE LAST ECHO


But get this, I have more to share!

Wanna know what it’s about? A little snippet from the cover???

All right, you asked for it:


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....


But I’ve saved the best for last, check this out…



My favorite part: the color of the flower has so much meaning in this book.


Sooooo.....

What do you guys think?

Can't wait to see Violet working with Sara and Rafe (I've already preordered Enthralled so I can read his backstory). I'm hoping Vi will be able to knock down some of the walls Rafe's put up and get to know him better.

Thanks for the synopsis and cover reveal!

Sophia Longmire said...

I totally cant wait! My aunt first gave me the Body Finder and I read it in three days. Recomended it to all of my friends. They havent stopped asking me about the next ones. Super happy when Desires of the Dead came out, and read it really fast. I dont think The Last Echo will leave my hands.

Laysa Stone said...

OMG, I will die. I will DIE, if Jay and Vi don't end up together. I swear. I love him, he's so sweet and charming! Can't wait to read The Last Echo. So excited!

it looks kind of like leaves you bought from Michaels. i don't love the cover, but it's okay... i guess. I'm still really excited about the book, though. i just don't think that the cover lives up to the book's reputation.
