Waiting On Wednesday: Echoes Among the Stones

August 14, 2019

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly feature that spotlights an up-and-coming release you are most excited about.

I love time-slips. It has the best of both, historical and contemporary. Being able to weave 2 very different stories together to make one compelling story is a fabulous talent and I get very excited when I see a new story coming out soon.

The book I'm waiting on, still have a little wait, it's due in December. I know from this author, Jamie Jo Wright, it will be a story full of mystery, a pinch of eerie, and maybe a murder! It's full of a lot of fun in my mind and I honestly can't wait to read it!

Waiting On:
Title: Echoes Among the Stones
Author: Jaime Jo Wright
Publisher: Bethany House
Publication Date: December 3rd, 2019

About the Book:
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she finds herself traveling to Wisconsin, where her grandmother, Mumsie, lives alone in her vintage, though very outdated, home.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.
