Echoes Among the Stones by Jaime Jo Wright ~ Review

Lucie's Review:

In between jobs, Aggie Dunkirk goes to stay with her grandmother in Wisconsin, and take a job working in the cemetery helping to restore it after a large flood.

In 1946 Imogene Grayson dreams of owning a beauty salon, but when she comes home to find her sister murdered, she vows to find the killer no matter what.

Two women's lives converge in Mill Creek, Wisconsin, centering on an old house and a murder that became the turning point of one woman's life. Aggie is at a crossroads in her life, having lost her job and being forced to start over again. Aggie finds a friend and confidant in Collin, an archaeologist who is also working on the cemetery restoration, I like how he was supportive and open about his faith throughout.

I really liked Imogene's drive and dedication to finding her sister's killer. This book also does a great job of showing how far we've come in investigative forensic sciences. I also liked how this book deals with things realistically, and things don't always fall into place perfectly.

An intriguing story, full of mystery, with introspective storytelling, with a modern gothic feel. The story focuses on two women at pivotal points in their lives, with strong themes of dealing with grief and finding hope. I wasn't sure what to expect when I picked up this one, because it isn't your typical romance, but I'm sure glad I did. It was absolutely riveting and impossible to put down, because I wanted to find out what would happen next.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
