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.

My Review:

Echoes of Titanic was definitely a mystery/romance page turner! Most of the book took place during present time, but some of the book flashes back to the Titanic time period. Incorporating two different time periods, spanning from a hundred years, added a nice touch to the book, making it an interesting historical contemporary book.

The Clarks did a great job introducing you to the business world. Not Knowing anything about business myself, I enjoyed the business aspect of the story. From the very first page, the author immersed you in action  with anonymous characters. The twists and turns the authors added only deepened your curiosity level, making it hard to put down. Mindy and John started a portion in the story and would end at a crucial point swiftly changing characters or even time periods, leaving you in suspense.

I enjoyed their easy to read writing style. Their detailed descriptions of each place the characters visited, even their ever changing emotions, were very imaginable. You could easily picture the fresh bagels, beautiful Titanic dinning room, and even the feel of hurt and betrayal the characters experienced. I was thoroughly impressed with this book. It included everything I look for in a book--romance, mystery and suspense, and historical depictions.

I would recommend this book to readers of various tastes. It gets its well deserved 5 stars out of 5.

You can purchase this book at CBD and Amazon.
