Deadly Echoes by Nancy Mehl

Goodreads | Amazon
After a youth filled with tragedy and upheaval, Sarah Miller's life is finally settled with all echoes of the past silent at last. She happily calls Sanctuary her home and spends her days teaching at the local school.

Sarah's joy at her recent reunion with her sister, Hannah, and meeting the niece she didn't know she had is too soon interrupted when Deputy Sheriff Paul Gleason informs Sarah her sister has been killed. 

As she learns more about Hannah's death, the circumstances are eerily similar to their parents' murder. Sarah enlists Paul's help in digging deeper into the murders the police are dismissing as burglaries gone wrong. Paul's concern encourages Sarah's growing feelings for him, but as their investigation peels back the layers of lies almost twenty years old, they get close to uncovering the truth one person will do anything to hide – even if that means coming after the last remaining members of the Miller family.

Nancy Mehl’s Deadly Echoes is full of mystery, suspense and intrigue. Sarah Miller has just reunited with her long-lost sister when her suspicious murder disrupts their budding relationship. Now, Sarah must do a bit of investigating, determined to uncover the culprit and motivation, ultimately looking for peace and justice. Sarah is a highly likeable, easy-to-root-for character. Mehl kept me hooked from beginning to end, and I could not wait to find out the reasoning for the crime. It’s a wonderfully addictive read and I would recommend it to anyone looking for an enjoyable mystery.

Thanks to Bethany House, I received a copy of Deadly Echoes and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
