Elusive Echoes- Kay Springsteen (Book 2)

Sean McGee and Melanie Mitchell, best friends since the day Sean’s mother died, and seemingly destined for each other, are struggling to understand the feelings and emotions that seem to be pulling them together and yet pushing them apart. It had always been Sean and Mel since age six, but at age thirteen Melanie was taken from the home, the people and the town she loved and put on a darker path she hated.
In her early twenty’s, feeling broken, Melanie returns to Orson’s Folly, a town that represents goodness, security, and love. Sean is overjoyed, but soon discovers that Melanie is not the exact same girl who left years earlier, she is harder and edgier and full of secrets. Over time, with his cautious ways Sean eventually rekindles the love and has Mel wanting more than what they currently have and she’s dreaming again about a life that she had always wanted – Sean. Though they’ve stoked the flames of their attraction, the trust and closeness they once shared hasn’t been stable and Sean feels that he is losing what ground he had gained and Mel slipping away from him. Current events have Mel’s past crashing down on her, she has to come clean about everything or lose everything she ever wanted.
Sean McGee and Melanie Mitchell’s gripping story Elusive Echoes thunders with emotion and suspense as we watch unravel a life of mystery, deceit, pain and love. But is their love enough to withstand the lies? Can there be love without trust? Can they move forward or will they be forced to love and let go?
What a great book! I said it before but will say it again Kay Springsteen writes a captivating story! Elusive Echoes is the second book (book one is Lifeline Echoes) and though it can be read as a standalone book, I highly recommend reading the book one first as it will have you loving the characters even more! I’m hoping that Ms. Springsteen continues on her journey through Orson’s Folly, as I for one, have signed up for the ride and as I sit here my mind keeps wondering back to whose story will be next?
Review Rating: 5
