Synopsis: Will Lauren risk losing her a man she's never met?

In the third installment of the Glenbrooke Series, Lauren Phillips is a young woman in a cutthroat world. This doesn't exclude her relationship with her fiancé, Jeff, who is a serious businessman. Lauren loves Jeff, but doesn't understand why he can't enjoy life beyond work. As a result of Lauren's new take-risks-and-enjoy-life attitude, Jeff decides to call off his and Lauren's wedding and move to New York for a new job. Heartbroken, Lauren must learn to pick up the pieces and move on.
When her brother, Brad, brings her a new computer to keep in touch, she happens upon a new cyber-friend whom she only knows by the nickname "K.C."
She soon finds herself developing a deep friendship with her pen-pal; and finds that she might just learn something else: how to open her heart and love again.

What I Loved: If I'm being honest, I loved every single thing about this book. I loved the reality of the story, the depth of the characters, and the relationships formed throughout the book. Robin Jones Gunn certainly perfected her art of storytelling with this novel. I found this novel to be leaps and bounds better than the last one of hers that I read.
I truly enjoyed the way Ms. Gunn highlighted the importance of friendship in any relationship. How two souls intertwine and connect with words. It was a truly marvelously beautiful story.

What I Wasn't So Fond Of: The only thing that I didn't like about this book was that it had to end! Honestly. I can't think of a single thing that I would have liked to have been different. Maybe extending the end a bit if we're being nit-picky, but I enjoyed it the way it was☺

Overall, I was thrilled by the beautiful story of love and friendship in Robin Jones Gunn's novel Echoes, and I can only hope the rest of this series will live up to it!
