Echoes by Robin Jones Gunn
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Lauren has an unusual amount of bad luck, but just as things seem to be looking up her fiance leaves her for a better job in New York.
When her brother Brad hears about his sisters plight he shows up with a computer in hopes of cheering her up. While teaching her how to use a chat room he randomly introduces her to a complete stranger who goes by K.C.
Through their online correspondence she learns that, like herself K.C is a fellow "God lover" and a fan of her heroes Robert and Elizabeth Browning. After a year of corresponding via email, they both decide it's time they meet each other in person. But Lauren fears that she will be heartbroken and abandoned once again and cannot face "the other half of her heart".
If I had to describe this book with one word it would be.... LAME!
The story plot may have had potential but the book itself was seriously cheesy!
First of all, the romance was way too unbelievable, I mean who's first kiss really happens like this??
" 'How say you?' he whispered the familiar Browning line. 'Let us, O my dove, Let us be unashamed of soul, as earth lies bare to heaven above! How is it under our control, to love or not to love?' Before the last word was out of his mouth, his lips had met hers in a lingering kiss that was full of love."
Second of all, the story moved so fast it felt like she contacted him a few times and they instantly
knew they were soul mates! Also there was almost no side stories and Laurens everyday life became quite boring after awhile! "She went grocery shopping", "she needed to finish this paper for school", " she stopped at the garage sale and brought a new book".... and on.... and on...
Needles to say I personally was not impressed!
