  1. 2 Just not for me Stars There will be Spoilers This book was so not for me I almost DNF d this book like 4 times and though OCD won out again I have yet to DNF a book in the years I have been reading this was the closest I ve gotten to an DNF to date I sat here for hours after finishing this book trying to think of the nicest way to write a review on a book I totally disliked while being honest So I guess I will start by saying that my hate for this book had nothing to do with the author or her [...]


  2. If you like stories of redemption, you re going to love ECHOES OF THE HEART The heroine, Calli Montgomery, is an alcoholic in the early stages of her recovery There s no sugar coating the disease within this uplifting story, and her struggles are on the page for readers to experience with her the lows, the fears, and the triumphs The hero, Jack Benfield, has plenty of reasons to hate drunks because of his own family history, and like so many family members of alcoholics, does not see how his wor [...]


  3. I started reading this at 11 00 a.m and finished it at 10 38 p.m I could not put it down Cali is everyone we are and pretend not to be Jack is everyone we dream about having but are scared of actually getting This love story of flawed but lovable characters fills you with curiosity, intrigue, sympathy, cringe worthy chuckles, passion, grief, and happiness I loved it so much, and the beautifully crafted writing pulled me into the story so deeply that I genuinely felt like I was in snowy Esterloch [...]

  5.

  6. Stacey A Purcell has written a thoughtful and emotional story with a deeply flawed main character The author s brilliance is that she made me care about the heroine and even root for her to effectively deal with her issues I appreciate the authenticity of Cali Montgomery s struggle with alcoholism, just as I appreciate Sheriff Jack Benfield s equally difficult struggle to deal with the alcoholic Cali.This is an impressive debut novel, and I look forward to books from this talented author.


  7. Echoes of the Heart is a thought provoking tale centered around alcoholism One of the characters is struggling with its demons The other character has been scarred by family members stricken with the addiction Ms Purcell creates a town, with strong supporting characters, that allows our characters to grow while they deal with these issues The pacing of the story is stellar She brings her characters down into the depths of despair, but never wallows there There is laughter, tears and joy I highly [...]


  8. Reviewed at Keeper BookshelfIt s often been said that once you hit rock bottom there s nowhere left to go but up that s not necessarily true You can hit rock bottom and tunnel a bit further down if you re determined enough or simply do not care about anything any.Cali thought her world ended when her husband died Actually the web of lies that was revealed at his funeral totally crushed her world and all she wanted from that point onward was escape Her escape route was the bottle, and it took her [...]


  9. Echoes of the Heart is an entertaining read from beginning to waiting on the next novel from Mrs Purcell I will admit I am not the typical Romance novel guy John Wayne characters and blood n guts action adventure is my taste, so I grudgingly accepted the challenge to read a Modern Day romance I can honestly say I am pleased I did I dove into the novel saddled with my denial of what I thought romance reading should be The authors story line includes the harsh reality that is alcoholism and all t [...]


  10. Ms Purcell has written a riveting story from beginning to end One dealing with an addiction tough to deal with and understand for all involved But she has done an amazing job here, giving us an inside look to both the alcoholic s view as well as those around her who care and want to help Cali and Jack are great characters that will make you smile and then tug at your heart as you watch them struggle on their way to find redemption and love A Wonderful read I can t wait to read from this author.

  13. This debut novel by Ms Purcell is both heartfelt and uplifting Even though Dr Calista Montgomery is filled with pain over past hurts and has turned to drinking to cope, her strength of character and deeply caring nature shine through Sheriff Jack Benfield meets her when she has reached her lowest point, a time when she feels she can endure no Unknowingly, he challenges her to do better and ultimately challenges his own perceptions of alcoholism and human nature.This story takes you on a journey [...]

  15. This story was full of raw, gritty emotion The realities of addiction and what happens to Cali Montgomery MD when she is arrested in a tiny town in upstate NY by a hard ass Sheriff who has zero tolerance for addicts and over drunks His cruel treatment of Cali initially and at times throughout the book gives us a glimpse into his own backstory, which comes out throughout the book as well Jack s Aunt Pookie gawd I loved this woman also the town Judge sentences Cali to a year in the town to clean u [...]


  16. I absolutely loved this book I am not much of a reader, mostly because I do not have time, but I couldn t put Echoes of the Heart down Between the romance, the realistic depiction of alcoholism, and witnessing characters struggle to overcome their challenges, I was hooked The book had me guessing until the end and I was left wanting Here s to hoping for a Book 2


  17. Still one of the best written books I can t wait for the next book to come out First Cali and Jack, Then Monica and Roarck the 3rd book is about Peter Each book so far has a different addition to it that you have to deal with And learn about.


  18. Wow this was not even close to what I expected when I was given this as a Christmas gift I don t think I ve read than one other romance book in my life and was very pleasantly surprised by this read Stacey is an amazing first time author and I look forward to her future work She captured the REAL essence of the difficulties of struggling with addiction A touchy subject that was handled with skill and class by Ms Purcell I liked this book so much, I passed it on and bought my own copy.
