Thanks to the amazing Colleen Hoover’s @colleenhoover giveaway contest, I won two signed books and cookies. What a wonderful way to be introduced to new authors! The cookies were immediately gobbled up but I spent my Christmas settling in to read one of my bounty, “Lingering Echoes” by Erica Kiefer @ericakieferbooks. This book is described as a Young Adult (YA) contemporary romance. My friends often tease that I love a good YA novel as much as any other genre. Eh – there is no shame in my reading game! After the onslaught of images and news we see every day, the innocence in a YA can be refreshing. And the extra bonus is potentially being able to discuss and share a great book with my teenage daughter!
“Lingering Echoes” is a captivating story about a young woman, Allie, coming to terms with a tragic loss while also experiencing a new love. While the story is definitely a romance, it also has great mystery elements and keeps the reader engaged and curious about what’s coming next. The relationship between the main characters is nicely developed, as well as relationships with supporting characters. It was a delightful read that also highlighted friendship and family. I have already recommended it to my own YA. I cannot wait to hear her opinion and see if she is Team Damien or Team Aaron!
