Echo Moon + Giveaway
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
This is the final book in this series. I did not know this going into this book. Having said this, I did not really feel like I missed anything having not read the two prior novels. Instantly, I was able to just pick up this book and start reading.
The story began in the past with Esme. Right away I was transported back in time. The story continued with alternating time travels from present to past. I really enjoyed the past the most. It is where I felt the most engaged with the characters and time period. It took me longer to warm up to the present. Yet, the further that I got into the story, the more that the present grew on me; especially as the two time periods intertwined together. Laura Spinella pens a lovely story with Echo Moon.
Spinella lives with her family near Boston, where she can always be found writing her next novel. She enjoys hearing from readers and chatting with book clubs. Visit her at www.lauraspinella.net.
