Deadly Echos: A Book Review
About The Book:
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.

In book two of the Finding Sanctuary series, you are introduced to the quaint town of Sanctuary and with book two, Deadly Echoes, you are brought back there, and are introduced to a super character in Sarah Miller. If you are you are a fan of author Nancy Mehl, you will not be disappointed with this latest installment.
The book draws you in to the world of Sarah and Sanctuary and it is choked full of twists and turns from the very beginning. There is an element of faith within the book but it is not done in a pushy way. The story line is very well developed and I loved all the characters, but Sarah was by far my favorite. The prominent theme through the book was to keep going on in life, even when life is hard, and that God carries us even when we don't realize it. A very hard book to put down, and I read it late into the night!
I cannot wait to read the rest of this series!
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
BUY IT: You can purchase Deadly Echoes at your favorite Christian book retailer. It is also available online through Amazon.
