This book was hard to put down! I often figure out mysteries, long before they end, but this one kept me guessing. I loved how the who-done-it started with the grandmother in her youth and ended with the granddaughter finally reaching the resolution.
This novel is well crafted - Wright's writing just keeps getting stronger with each novel! I even shed a few tears during the last few pages. I highly recommend this novel.
CherylG5 Stars Out Of 5Very good book!December 3, 2019CherylGQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I love it when the clues come little by little. When you just can't figure out who did it and why until the very end. Jamie Jo Wright is so good at this! The end came as a huge, complete surprise. The storyline occured in the 40s and in more modern times. It was neat because we are introduced to the 1940s characters by the more modern day characters as they tried to solve a very old murder. This is a very good book. I really look forward to this authors works. They are excellent.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. I was not required to write a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Rachs RamblingsBangor, MEAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5terrific slip time suspenseDecember 3, 2019Rachs RamblingsBangor, MEAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Once again this author brings another tremendous story. I really liked the characters of this story both in the contemporary and historical. I think I liked Imogene most. The book is morbid and sad, yet there is laugh out loud humor as well. The plot has twists and turns, on in particular,at least caught this reader off guard.
I really felt the storytelling was terrific ,and I enjoyed both the present and historical stories. For me, that's rare. Usually, i find the historical story much more appealing. This novel, though, had me deeply interested in both.
The faith theme in the book isn't overly strong, but I enjoyed it and how well it was woven into the story. I felt the main part of it was the knowing we have is that God is in control, and there is a strong message of hope to be found.
This book really had all the elements of a good story!
I received this book from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
MaureenTSyracuse NYGender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Losses Past and PresentDecember 3, 2019MaureenTSyracuse NYGender: femaleA book that flashes between the present day and WWII time, between present losses and past loss of a loved one.
The book begins with the return of a Granddaughter and the lie of a Grandmother that she had broken her hip, but Aggie needed to come here, and there needed to be answers to the long-ago murder of a family member.
As the author presented the characters, I kept changing my mind as to who would have done the evil deed, but have to say I was very surprised when the answers finally came.
A little morbid, with the doll house, and then skeletons and bone fragments appearing, but then they all have a hint to what happened.
In the end, I was glad that Aggie came and stayed with Mumsie, and I loved the character Collin!
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Bethany, and was not required to give a positive review.
Moonglotexas5 Stars Out Of 5clever wnd hope-filledDecember 2, 2019MoonglotexasQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5"She should have paid more attention to her longtime neighbor, Oliver Schneider, when she passed him on the road at dawn." - Opening line of "Echoes among the Stones" by Jaime Jo Wright
Jaime Jo Wright has an amazing ability to write thrilling split-time fiction! In "Echoes among the Stones", she weaves a 1946 murder into a modern-day cemetery mystery. Captivating from the first page, I raced through it wanting to know who killed Imogen's sister, Hazel and why and equally wanting to know how it would relate to the modern day story.
Each of cast of characters is complex, each individual multifaceted. At it's heart, the book struggles with the challenges of grief and how God fits into the death of loved ones. Whilst the central theme is a sad one, it's written with hope and so, the mood of the story is positive. Aggie and Imogen are easy to relate to and root for and I enjoyed the archeologist, Collin's, intelligence, sensitivity and British wit.
I loved this mystery, it's clever and carefully plotted but to share more would be to spoil the journey. If you enjoy a good whodunit full of clues for you to work out as you go along, this is one to read!
All in all, another stellar read from Jaime Jo Wright and a five out five en-JOY-ment. It's highly recommended, one not to be missed!
