Book Review: Deadly Echoes

Cover Art

From the Back:

After a youth filled with tragedy and upheaval, Sarah Miller's life is finally settled with all echoes of the past silent at last. She happily calls Sanctuary her home and spends her days teaching at the local school.

Sarah's joy at her recent reunion with her sister, Hannah, and meeting the niece she didn't know she had is too soon interrupted when Deputy Sheriff Paul Gleason informs Sarah her sister has been killed.

As she learns more about Hannah's death, the circumstances are eerily similar to their parents' murder. Sarah enlists Paul's help in digging deeper into the murders the police are dismissing as burglaries gone wrong. Paul's concern encourages Sarah's growing feelings for him, but as their investigation peels back the layers of lies almost twenty years old, they get close to uncovering the truth one person will do anything to hide--even if that means coming after the last remaining members of the Miller family.

My Reflections:

Mehl has penned another roller-coaster of a suspense with her newest book "Deadly Echoes."

Her newest book was a complete hit with me, having read it in record time I could not wait to see how the book finished. Deadly Echoes has it all, heart tugging drama, romance, suspense, redemption and even a little small town Amish charm.

Sarah learns of her sisters death and not only has to face the fact that she will be her nieces only surviving relative, but also has to take up the torch of finding her sister's killer.

Sarah has never been able to shake the feeling that she was second best, overlooked by prospective adoptive parents, her sister Hannah was adopted effortlessly. Years later the hurt and past still plague Sarah. The chance to step out of her sister's shadow is just withing reach, but she must also find her sister's killer. Is the past tied to the present? Were her parents murdered by the very same person?

I so enjoyed all the characters in this novel, although I was able to suspect who done it, I was pleasantly surprised by a few of the plot twists. Overall a fabulous read!

Highly recommend this one, if you are looking for a little adrenaline and drama.

I was given this book free of charge in return for my honest review from Graf-Martin Communications. Thank you so much Graf-Martin!
