A past life, a past war, and a past love. Peter St John can’t foresee a future until he confronts his past sins.
When photojournalist Peter St John returns home after a two-year absence, the life he’s been running from catches up. For years his mother’s presence, coupled with Pete’s own psychic gift, has triggered visits to 1917. There, he relives battles of the Great War, captures the heyday of Coney Island on canvas, and falls in love with an enchanting and enigmatic songstress named Esme. Present-day Pete still pines for Esme, and his love endures…but so does his vivid memory of killing her.
When he discovers family heirlooms that serve as proof of his crimes, Pete will have to finally confront his former life. He also meets a young woman—who is more than what she seems—with a curious connection to his family. As century-old secrets unravel, can Pete reconcile a murder from his past before it destroys his future?
“Enthralling and imaginative, where the past intertwines with the present, Spinella masterfully delivers in the third and final installment of her Ghost Gifts trilogy. Echo Moon is filled with suspense, mystery, and romance, and kept me turning the pages and on my toes until the very end, an ending I didn’t see coming. I love unexpected twists! Fans, new and old, as Echo Moon can easily stand on its own, will devour Peter St John’s story. I sure did.” —Kerry Lonsdale, Wall Street Journalbestselling author of Everything We Keep
Mama Says- with an important note:
While this is book 3 in a series, each is technically a standalone book and I did not feel too confused or like I was missing anything having not read the first two books, however, if you prefer to read a series in order no matter what, visit the author’s website for more information on Ghost Gifts!
Sometimes, I forget how much I love a damn good mystery. Especially one that is all wrapped up in family history. Echo Moon is one such riveting tale, sprinkled with bits of such haunting, melodic prose that I was utterly engrossed.
Although not your typical page-turner, I read this rather quickly for its size, and I must say that you will most likely not want to read it at bedtime if you do actually want to sleep and not read “one more chapter” ahem, aka finish the thing.
While some people grab light romances for their beach bag, others want something that will chill them to fend off the heat, and something they can sit on a towel with and not be bothered to come up for air. If you’re the latter, pick up Echo Moon!
4 stars and my sincere thanks to the author and tour host TLC Books for the review opportunity!
