In the end, all that’s left is an echo.

Violet kept her morbid ability to sense dead bodies a secret from everyone except her family and her childhood-best-friend-turned-boyfriend, Jay Heaton. That is until forensic psychologist Sara Priest discovered Violet’s talent and invited her to use her gift to track down murderers. Now, as she works with an eclectic group of individuals—including mysterious and dangerously attractive Rafe—it’s Violet’s job to help those who have been murdered by bringing their killers to justice.

When Violet discovers the body of a college girl killed by “the girlfriend collector” she is determined to solve the case. But now the serial killer is on the lookout for a new “relationship” and Violet may have caught his eye....

Taking my time, I enjoyed this novel. Very moving from start to finish, I’m anxious to get to the next book already…


The plot of the book is once again very exciting. Moving quickly, stepping into Violet’s shoe’s, I’m ready to be a detective. I’m ready to find dead bodies and solve mysteries. Being in Violet shoes is never boring. Instead, I find myself so intrigued with the plot I can’t help but read faster.


The love interest for me is good. I know Violet is discovering different feeling in her and I know its just a matter of time before she picks. She keeps saying what she wants, just not what she feels. At this point, I think it can go either way. I do like that this love interest is not a totally love triangle. It’s complicated just not overly complicated with I could deal with. Violet doesn’t mess around or play games.


The Last Echo confirms that Violet is gaining strength and coming into her abilities fast. She is becoming much more receptive of it, which helps Violet overall. Profound and moving, The Last Echo is great!


I give it 4 BITES!


Happy Reading!



  1. I still haven’t read that first book yet. I’m glad that it seems to still be going strong.
