Rhe's Bookshelf - The Glenbrooke Series, Book 3

Happy Saturday everyone!  I am happy once again, to bring you a book from The Glenbrooke Sereis, by Robin Jones Gunn.  Echoes is the third book in this wonderful series.  I was able to get my hands on it and couldn't wait to find, buy and receive number two, so I just went ahead and dove right in. 

Echoes, Glenbrooke Series #3 

Summary: In this dramatic contemporary romance by bestselling author Robin Jones Gunn, Lauren Phillips enters the wild, uncharted territory of the Internet on her home computer and "connects" with a man known only as "K.C."

But her correspondence with K.C. quickly becomes the thing she loves most...and the source of dreams she cannot bear to relinquish. When the opportunity comes for them to meet after a year of corresponding, Lauren faces a tough choice: Is she willing to risk everything...including a broken heart? Readers will stay "on-line" to find out in this bestselling former Palisades release, now the third book in the new Glenbrooke series.

What I thought:  As I said in my brief introduction I am a huge fan of Ms. Gunn and this series.  The Glenbrooke series is a sweet series all taking place in and around the lives of those of the small town of Glenbrooke.    Book Three takes place in a time when computers, email and chat rooms are a new thing.  I must admit it was kind of weird to be catapulted back to a time when that was all new.  I remember that time!  Despite that, the book was still relate-able and didn't feel outdated in any way.  It was sweet and cute and reminded me of You've Got Mail, or its older inspirations - The Shop Around the Corner and In the Good Old Summertime (movies I recommend everyone check out if you haven't!).  Its a timeless story, and one that I think most women would love.  Sure, it might seem unbelievable at times, finding true love through someone you've never met.  It is a beautiful story, one full of inspiration and lessons about trusting God.  This is a Christian novel, make no mistake.  It is carefully woven through the story, but also carefully not rammed down your throat in a offensive way.  It is full of inspiration and life lessons of trust, and letting go.  I highly recommend this book, and the series as a whole to be young and adult women.

5 out of 5 stars!

I received this book as a part of the Blogging for Books program with Multnomah Publishing.  I was not compensated in any other way.  My thoughts are opinions are my own.
