Echoes of Titanic

About The Book:
Kelsey Tate comes from sturdy stock.

Her great-grandmother Adele endured the sinking of Titanic and made it safely to America, where she not only survived but thrived. Generations later, Kelsey works for the firm Adele founded nearly 100 years ago. Now facing a hostile takeover, the firm’s origins are challenged when new facts emerge about Adele’s actions on the night Titanic sank.

Kelsey tries to defend the company and the great-grandmother she has long admired, but the stakes are raised when Kelsey’s boss is murdered and her own life threatened. Forced to seek help from Cole Thornton, a man Kelsey once loved—and lost, thanks to her success-at-all-costs mentality—she pursues mysteries both past and present. Aided by Cole and strengthened by the faith she’d all but forgotten in her climb up the corporate ladder, Kelsey races the clock to defend her family legacy, her livelihood, and ultimately her life.

Cafe Lily's Review:

I have always enjoyed reading about the Titanic, both fiction, and non-fiction.  I just never seem to tire of reading about this historical event.   Echoes of  Titanic was different in that I had a very hard time connecting with this book.   The beginning was very slow for me and the whole "corporate" present day feel of this story just didn't work, in my opinion.   I felt like I was slowly climbing uphill to make it to the part of the story I wanted to read about, and it was just too cumbersome after quite a few chapters.  I really wanted to love this book but I couldn't finish it, and found myself bored and restless.

Disclosure of Material Connection:

I received this book free from Harvest House. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
