Roscoe has created an intricate tale of past and present in the page turner "Echoes". This unique book has the perfect balance of murder, mystery, sex and revenge. The author's twisting tale kept me guessing all the way to the end. Although "Echoes" has some adult content I found it very hard to put the book down. I loved stepping into the past of the Tudor period with King Henry the VIII. I liked to follow how P.J. Roscoe combined the modern day with the past, adding a little history into it. Roscoe has made a fascinating and enjoyable read. I am already looking forward to her next book.
