My rating: 5 of 5 stars
After Aggie Dunkirk's career is unceremoniously ended by her own mistakes, she finds herself traveling to Wisconsin, where her grandmother, Mumsie, lives alone in her vintage, though very outdated, home. Aggie didn't plan for how eccentric Mumsie has become, obsessing over an old, unsolved crime scene--even going so far as to re-create it in a dollhouse.
Mystery seems to follow Aggie when she finds work as a secretary helping to restore the flooded historical part of the town's cemetery. Forced to work with a puzzling yet attractive archaeologist, she exhumes the past's secrets and unwittingly uncovers a crime that some will go to any length to keep hidden--even if that means silencing Aggie.
In 1946, Imogene Grayson works in a beauty salon but has her sights set on Hollywood. But coming home to discover her younger sister's body in the attic changes everything. Unfamiliar with the burgeoning world of forensic science and, as a woman, not particularly welcomed into the investigation, Imogene is nonetheless determined to stay involved. As her sister's case grows cold, Imogene vows to find justice . . . no matter the cost.
Echoes Among the Stones by Jaime Jo Wright is by far among one of my top favorites I have read this year. I love time slip novels and this one does not disappoint. It is so full of suspense; I was left hanging to “who did it” up until the last few pages. I changed my mind so many times who it was and still did not get it right. It was definitely not what I predicted at all. How in the world did Jaime come up with this mystery? She did a great job keeping me engaged with the book throughout.
I would give Echoes Among the Stones one hundred stars if I could. What a fabulous book! Readers definitely do not want to miss this one. I highly recommend it!
I received this book from the author, but was not required to write a review. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
