Lingering Echoes Blog Tour

Review:  I applaud Erica Kiefer on the AMAZING job she did with Linger Echoes.  It kept me up ALL night reading!  Erica has such talent with writing; she connects the reader to her characters even if they have nothing in common.  There was the perfect amount of description of the scenery, and emotions that played out.  The story had mystery, suspense, adventure, sorrow, and of course romance!  It seems like it’s a lot to compact into one book, but Erica’s skill brought it together wonderfully.  From the very first chapter I was hooked and didn’t want to stop reading!  Of course sometimes school likes to disrupt my reading *UGH*!  Ha!  But I went straight back to it.  I don’t expect to open a book and fall completely in love with it.  Lingering Echoes took be by TOTALLY surprise at how much I LOVED it!  Although I could not relate to the events that have taken place in Allie’s life, however I did connect with her over the way she felt and dealt with things.  That’s what makes her so likeable, I think.  Her pain and dealing with it brings up truth to the story.  Making it even more real!   I REALLY enjoyed Lingering Echoes and would gladly read it again! 



Rating: 5/5

Erica Kiefer was born on Christmas Eve in Southern California to an American father whose ancestors arrived from Europe during colonial times and a Thai mother who moved to the US during high school. Adding to her rich and varied heritage, Erica grew up living abroad in Asia, including Taiwan, Fiji, Thailand and Indonesia. She gained a great respect for the beautiful mosaic of cultures found in various parts of the world. After graduating from International School Bangkok, she attended Brigham Young University in Utah, where she earned a degree in Recreation Therapy. Her career as a Recreation Therapist has allowed her to work with at-risk youth since 2007.

Erica made the best decision of her life by marrying her husband in 2005 and is currently a mother of three, one of whom awaits her in heaven. Erica also loves singing, reading, writing, and satisfying her sweet-tooth with chocolate-chip cookies. Playing collegiate rugby was one of the most memorable experiences of her life, thus far.
