My Review of “Echo Moon” by Laura Spinella
I was enchanted and captivated by “Echo Moon” by Laura Spinella. Laura Spinella writes an amazing, intense, intriguing, unique and spellbinding story. This is the Finale in the Ghost-Gifts Series, and yet it can be read as a stand-alone. I suggest that you read the other two books to enjoy and appreciate the character history before you read “Echo Moon” The Genres for this book are Fiction, Para-Normal, Mystery and Suspense, Romance, with an essence of History. The author weaves her story with vivid descriptions of her colorful cast of characters and a timeline of the past, present and possibility of future events.
The author describes her characters as complex and complicated. One of my favorite characters Aubrey Ellis, and her special psychic gifts, is back. Some of the grifters and “characters” alive, and once alive are back. In this novel, Aubrey’s son, Peter St. John is now grown and a prominent photo-journalist going to dangerous places. Pete avoids coming home, where his own psychic abilities clash with his mother’s. Pete is tormented by his past.
Peter is forced to come to terms with the events of his past life in order to exist in the present and move on to the future. There are twists and turns and mystery and adventure. As long-buried secrets unravel, and there is more psychic involvement with the characters, the pieces of the puzzle finally seem to fit. I loved everything about Laura Spinella’s novel. My only disappointment is that I will miss the characters and I hope that the author will write some more about them. I highly recommend this novel to readers of imagination that appreciate fiction and romance. I received an ARC from NetGalley for my honest review.
