"We shouldn’t be here, Mommy."

Caitlin had spoken the words the minute the tiny town of Mountain Bend came into view through the windshield of their ’83 Datsun. But Tori had refused to listen to the solemn warning in her seven year old daughter’s voice with the same single-minded determination she used to deny late payment notices and speeding tickets. In the three months that had passed since then, Tori had finally grasped what Caitlin knew all along. Unpaid fines and fiercely worded credit statements couldn’t kill them.

Staying in Mountain Bend could....

Each character has a counterpart in both levels, and the shift to past history holds the key to the main story.

Tess Carson is called from her New York home to a remote California town when her sister turns up missing. But when she arrives in Mountain Bend to look after her sister's daughter, she realizes there is more to the disappearance than appears on the surface because Tess knows her sister would never leave her daughter behind. But her sister's boss is dead and her sister is a suspect. Tess turns to an unlikely ally to clear her sister's name....the dead man's son, Grant Weston, who is haunted by his own demons. And there is something else haunting Tess. Something forcing her to experience strange, terrifying hallucinations of another time and place....over one hundred years in the past.

This is the first book I've read by Erin Grady but it definitely won't be my last. I could not put this book down and loved every minute of it. If you want an excellent read and something a bit different and also something that will keep you on the edge of your seat, don't miss this book.

Tess France has once again been called upon to help Tori, her irresponsible sister, who has recently relocated to remote Mountain Bend, California. Tori has failed to pick up her seven year old daughter Caitlin after school. Rather than allow school principal Craig Weston to send her niece to a shelter, Tess immediately makes the long flight from New York to Caitlin's aid in California.

Once in Mountain Bend, Tess meets Sheriff Smith. The sheriff is interested in Tori's whereabouts, but not because she is a missing person. He believes Tori is involved in the death of Frank Weston, her employer. Frank, Craig's father, is also missing a substantial amount of money. Tess is convinced that Tori would never abandon her daughter, and she hopes Tori did not have anything to do with Frank's death. Remaining in Mountain Bend for Caitlin, Tess attempts to locate Tori and prove her innocence. She looks to Frank's other son, former Hollywood star Grant Weston, for help. While Tess finds herself attracted to Grant, she doesn't know how much she can trust him. In the midst of all this uncertainty, Tess begins to blackout and experience visions of the past. The visions are eerily similar to her current situation. Could this phenomenon enable Tess to find the truth? Is someone trying to tell her something? Will she discover the secrets of the past before they bind her to the same fate?

Echoes is a beautifully romantic suspense novel. This wonderful story drew me in, and I could not put it down. It seemed vividly real, especially the visions. I felt as if I were experiencing them with Tess. My heart was pounding, and my mind was racing to figure out what it all meant. Tess, the good girl, is a wholly likable character thrown into extraordinary circumstances.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Mountain Bend, California elementary school principal Craig Weston calls Tess Carson at her New York City Supplies & Sales office to tell her that her sister Tori failed to pick up her daughter seven years old Caitlin. Rather than see her niece in a foster facility, Tess, used to her sibling's failures, flies to California to take care of Caitlin.

There she learns that Sheriff Smith suspects her sister stole money from her employer, Craig's father rancher Frank Weston, who just died in an apparent tractor accident. Making matters worse as she tries to comfort Caitly, Tess is attracted to Craig's brother former Hollywood superstar Grant, who has had his choice of beauties but desires Tess too. As Tess has visions of the past that she feels is tied to her missing sister, neither she nor Grant is aware of the dangers lurking in this remote mountain town from an unidentified assailant with sinister plans who already killed Frank and abetted by an ally turned that into looking like a tragic accident.

This engaging romantic suspense stars two likable protagonists both dealing with recent tragedies that seem interconnected, but neither know how until the climax. The story line is action-packed, but insures that the audience can feel Grant's loss, Caitly's uncertainty, and Tess' worries. The final twists seem over the mountainside, but the audience will still treasure this terrific tense thriller.

This is my first Erin Grady novel, and it certainly won't be my last. I enjoyed the sizzling romance mixed with paranormal time-travel. Reminded me somewhat of my own novel, The River, although it is very different. I found the characters were 3-dimensional and satisfying. There were enough twists and turns to keep me on my toes, and all in all Echoes was a great read with an interesting spin.

What a fun read! Erin Grady has a fresh vivid style that adds intensity and intelligence to her rich plotting and smoldering romance. ECHOES is filled with extremely well written characters, a deeply evocative setting and dazzling twists that kept me guessing to the last page. I loved the way Erin intertwined the parallel stories of the present and past-and expertly managed to up the tension and stakes with every scene. This book captures the perfect blend of supernatural suspense, history and romance. I can't wait for the next one.
