Book Review | Deadly Echoes

Living in the rural town of Sanctuary, MO, Sarah Miller has found peace and contentment in Christ and teaching at the local school.  She's finally begun to put the past to rest, the tragic death of her parents which has haunted all of her life, and is delighted to have reunited with her sister, Hannah, and her niece after so many years.

But when Hannah is murdered, under circumstances so similar to her parents, all of the memories come rushing back.  The police write it off as a burglary gone wrong, as they did with her parents. Coincidence?  Maybe...but when Sarah receives a letter mailed by Hannah shortly before her death, things take a more serious turn.  They never found the person who murdered their parents...could the two tragedies be linked?  With the assistance of Deputy Sheriff Paul Gleason, Sarah begins digging deeper and uncovering facts that someone is desperate to keep hidden.  Someone who is desperate enough to come after anyone who gets in their way.

This was a suspenseful read and I enjoyed every page!  I love a good mystery, and this was definitely one of them.  Very well written, clean romance, with the love of Christ shining brightly without being cliche, the plot drew me in right away.  The characters were believable, relate-able, and like-able.  I found Sarah especially so.  Always comparing herself to others, especially her sister, thinking that she's nothing special.  I think that's something a lot of us do.  I loved this part in the book, "We can't see ourselves clearly when we're standing in someone else's shadow...God created you to be Sarah."  God has made us each our own, unique person, with our own special talents.  If we're constantly comparing ourselves to others, then we won't see that.  Not only was this is fantastic mystery, but I came away from this book encouraged and uplifted.  I'd recommend it to anyone without hesitation.
