Teaser Tuesday #16: The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB from Should Be Reading, and you have to share a few sentences from the book your currently reading, so here's mine, from The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting. I haven't read much, so it'll be quite close to the beginning so I won't spoil anything for you or for me! (Sorry I don't have the page number as I'm reading this on my Kindle!)

The Body Finder (The Body Finder, #1) Synopsis from Goodreads.com: Violet Ambrose is grappling with two major issues: Jay Heaton and her morbid secret ability. While the sixteen-year-old is confused by her new feelings for her best friend since childhood, she is more disturbed by her "power" to sense dead bodies—or at least those that have been murdered. Since she was a little girl, she has felt the echoes the dead leave behind in the world . . . and the imprints that attach to their killers.
Violet has never considered her strange talent to be a gift; it mostly just led her to find dead birds her cat left for her. But now that a serial killer is terrorizing her small town, and the echoes of the local girls he's claimed haunt her daily, Violet realizes she might be the only person who can stop him.
Despite his fierce protectiveness over her, Jay reluctantly agrees to help Violet find the murderer—and Violet is unnerved by her hope that Jay's intentions are much more than friendly. But even as she's falling intensely in love, Violet is getting closer and closer to discovering a killer . . . and becoming his prey herself.

My teaser:
"Violet screamed at the same time that Jay reached her and saw what she was looking at. He wrapped his arms around her from behind and dragged her away in search of help."

What's your teaser? Feel free to link to it in the comments!
