Echoes by Robin Gunn Jones

"Echoes" by Robin Gunn Jones gets 5 stars from me. This book is number 3 of 8  in The Glenbrooke Series. Even through this is in a series the book was great as a stand alone. I am going to look for the other 7. 
Right before the  breakup Lauren Phillips's fiancee tells her "Things always seem to happen to you". This was said after the sudden decision to change her hair style which is only one of the funny episodes told in the book. After the breakup Lauren starts sending and receiving emails from KC. She also goes back to school to get her teaching degree. Lauren and KC are both fans of Robert Browning and Elizabeth Barrett Browning poems. They send emails back and forth for a year and then they decided to meet face to face. When Lauren spots KC at that place they decide on she gets scared and runs away only to eventually meet him in the place she runs too.
This story is about a online relationship and how two people can fall in love without meeting each other. This story is one that every reader would enjoy rather a Christian or not, even with the mention of Biblical passages ( which I especially liked). Lauren and KC's story is one that made me want to keep turning the pages to see how and when they would meet and if they even liked each other when they did meet. 
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
