Review: Elusive Echoes (Second in The Echoes of Orson's Folly series) by Kay Springsteen

Elusive Echoes


They’re two people caught between friendship and something more; they can’t move forward, and they can’t let go.
Drawn together from early childhood, Sean McGee and Melanie Mitchell seemed destined for each other. But at age thirteen, Melanie was wrenched from the people she loved and forced onto a path she loathed. Sean was no stranger to people leaving, but losing Melanie devastated him. When she suddenly reappeared in Orson’s Folly, Sean was overjoyed. The Melanie who came home, though, wasn’t the same girl. She’s got a harder edge and she’s obviously hiding something, but Sean no longer knows how to reach her.
Returning to Orson's Folly as an adult, all Melanie wanted to do was forget the years she spent away. But she soon learned that going home didn’t mean she could return to her old life—or her childhood sweetheart, Sean. Even their mutual attraction to one another hasn’t rebuilt the bond of trust and closeness they once shared. It’s been seven years since she returned and now everything Melanie wants to forget has broadsided her. She must confront her demons and relive her past in an unexpected way or risk losing the only man she’s ever loved. But even if she succeeds, Sean might be lost to her anyway.
If you have read Lifeline Echoes and loved it, you definitely won't be disappointed in book two of this series. Elusive Echoes is just as amazingly written as the first. A story full of hope, love, and passion.  I think I loved this book even more than the first. The characters were so believable and I connected with Sean and Melanie so much. I joined them on their journey and went through the emotions as they did. This story has a wonderful plot that was easy to follow along with. I would definitely recommend this to anyone and I hope there is another book coming to this series soon!

Thank you for such kind words! I can promise that there are currently two more books planned directly around this family with a probably third. The next that will come out will be a shorter story, a prequel dealing with Justin and his wife because so many people have asked for his story - and his story will be in two parts - earlier and later. And Ricky will factor in at least two more stories for those who asked. Thank you for taking the time to review my novels!
